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......
