Political Party Shirt ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Smilebox ~ Tucker's Little League Game ~ Moon ~ Paper Is Dead ~ High Five!

Good 42º wispy clouds morning.
I got a new shirt yesterday.... 

Throw Back Thursday.... Kirk Gibson and me...
Tommy Lasorda and our Sheriff Sherman Block were friends and Kirk wanted a permit to carry, as he had been robbed in front of his home.
So Sherm told Lasorda to have him come to the BC Range so they could determine if he knew how to handle a gun. I was working for Fabergé at the time and Jerry called me to say Gibson was at the range. I immediately went there. I was at the 1988 World Series game with my sister Marion when Kirk hobbled to the plate and hit the winning run.
He was sooooooooooo nice!!

I finally got a smilebox put together of the first 3 days of my road trip with pal Linda from here to W. Covina. The next one will be to Laughlin....

Yesterday I went into town and picked up PJ and Dave's mail. Later I went to Garrison Field to watch Tucker and his Little League Orioles play. Tucker's number is 1 ! He played left field.

Up to bat and he got a hit and on base....

Brian is a sponsor of the Little League..

The game was at 5:30 and on my way home about 7:30 the moon was out, very light and hard to see and wispy clouds......

This shared by Deeewayne Pberger. Paper Is Not Dead. It's 39 seconds and if you haven't seen it before you will get a good laugh. A French ad about it being said 'paper is dead' because we are living in and electronic age.    ???

Hi Sue...

loved the French Joke about paper. They have a pretty
good sense of humor!

Your Grandson is sooooo cute and loved the picture of
you and the Dodger dude, Gibson.

Thanks for another fun blog.....

Loved your Smile Boxes! Enjoyed it. When Judy and I went to Sacramento and back with Diane Lenning who was running for Super. of Public Instruction we stopped at Harris Ranch for dinner. Interesting place.

Those feral cats are so pretty. So many of them.

When John and his dad first went into drag racing they raced their '32 Ford Roadster. It was green as was their dragster after that. Supposed to be bad luck to have a green race car but they went against that thinking. :)

I think I told you that John and John, III were at that Dodger game. They thought the Dodgers were losing so got a head start on the traffic. They were on the freeway listening to the rest of the game on the radio when Gibson hit that home run! LOL Just their luck! I watched it on TV and was cheering!

Hugs, XOXO Trisha

Thanks T !!! Yes, shame John and John Jr missed that ending. It was fantastic!!!! My sis was rooting for the A's so she was not all that thrilled. LOL. xoox

LOL. We were at that game, also. Eric was a pitcher for the Oakland A's... Learned a lot about life that day. On the top of my mind- a contest should not be called until the counting is done. Who was celebrating the end of the 9th was not who was predicted until after the 2nd out of the 9th inning.
