Picture of the Week & Baseball


Some of you sharp people out there have figured out that for the past few weeks, StoryRhyme.com has been putting up a picture of the week on the front page of our site. Husband scrolls through his collection and picks one that strikes his fancy. This week's pick was taken after I gave Charlie and his friend George a box of chalk and turned them loose to decorate the back patio with it. The results proved that middle schoolers are not too old for chalk drawings. Charlie wanted to preserve their temporary art and I was surprised how well the pictures turned out. So enjoy our picture of the week. We'll see what the coming weeks will bring. (Past pics have included Chance with big stick and one of our red-eared slider turtles.)

I'm not a big sports fan, but lately I've been enjoying watching the baseball playoffs. Both our local teams had a shot at going to the World Series and both lost. Tonight was the final playoff game and we experienced the heartbreak of loss. But those Yankee fans did really look happy; filled with joy. Baseball is the great American pastime. I grew up watching games with my dad and, like many of my generation, remember the great All-Star Dodgers infield -- Steve Garvey, Ron Cey, Davey Lopes and Bill Russell.

I don't know the players like I used to, but it's nice to be able to sit back and still enjoy the game after all these years. Now, do I root for the Phillies or the Yankees in the World Series? It doesn't really matter. And, the great thing about baseball, it will roll around again next year.
