I’ve told you how Daddy and I watch the Astros play every evening. Well, last night was an unbelievable disappointment as we hung with them late – through 13 innings – only to see the Cubs’ Soriano hit a grand slam to win the game. I don’t blame Chris Sampson, one of my favorite relievers. I am thinking perhaps the game should have been managed differently, but I am even more certain that they don’t pay me the big coaching bucks for a reason!
Tonight, we are having another emotionally difficult game (do you wonder about a woman who gets this wrapped up in a GAME?!), but as I was writing the first paragraph of this post, we scored 3 more runs, making the score Astros 10, Cubs 6. The emo part of the game began when Roy Oswalt, our pitching Ace, suffered an injury in the second inning! We’ve had ups and downs ever since!! We need to win this game, though!!
When I watch games like this, I miss Nathanael more than ever! Something totally fun happens, and my first reaction is to call Bo. When I get mad at the Umpire, I know who will sympathize with me. And if I don’t understand some play, or the official scorer’s decision, Bo always straightens me out. But for some reason, they don’t show the Astros in Minneapolis! So I have to figure this out all by myself!
Now to change the subject…..
I got on Bill’s laptop to play around while watching the game, and I found a couple of pictures I hadn’t seen before. The first is from our Pastor’s anniversary at our church. I just love this pic of Dannye Reigh with A.J.
These next photos are some that Bill took at my request. I had a project in mind, but what I saw in my brain was so hard to make anyone understand, I’m not sure I can use them for what I wanted. But the pictures are so beautiful, I wanted to show you!
This is a cow pasture near our home that just burst forth with Texas Bluebells!
They are some of the most beautiful wild flowers I’ve ever seen. The blooms are about 3 inches across on plants about 1 – 2 feet tall.
Well, we did it – we won the game! Final score: Astros 11, Cubs 6. What a game!
Thanks for sharing the evening with me.
God bless your day!
