A Walk in the Woods

A couple of friends of mine went on a hike along the Appalachian Trail, took a pic. of their packs at Max Patch, NC.  They hiked from there 22 miles and 2 days later, to Hot Springs, NC. Then requested a sketch of their pic.  While I get a lot of pleasure in sketching, I find it nearly embarrassing to try to capture the beauty of nature. Who can do that??

R.I.P. 2015 Seattle Mariners

Baseball

Today is the last game of the season for my Seattle Mariners.  A summary of this season was like finding out the homecoming queen wanted you to ask her to the prom but you ended up taking your cousin Thelma instead…who insisted her best friend Leslie come also…who talked awkwardly loud through her nose…who got car sick on the way…but didn’t tell you till it was too late…but in the end, like today, you’re glad it’s over.  These are our seats for one of the games we were able to go to this year, in section 235, GREAT seats!  We ate like kings– Garlic Fries, BBQ Nachos, the Mt. Dew flowed like water…got all kinds of free stuff like a bobble head, sunglasses, T-shirts, a head band (yes the kind that keep sweat from running in your eyes, popular in the ’70s)–my wife got a free sun hat and we had a blast at the game!  Only 4 1/2 months until Spring Training!
