Kickball

Kickball was my favorite team sport as a child. I could kick that bouncy rubber ball far. So when our friend and neighbor, Howard, announced a community kickball game I was all in. I am happy to report I still have it. I made it to base two times and kicked a home run with only one foul out in two games. I also pitched in our 7 to 1 victory. Burt was a monster kicker, too. With his 3 homers and solid pitching we are considering settling down and finding a kickball league as a permanent home. Not really. The conclusion after the two five inning games was that we all had a lot of fun. Next up, dodgeball.

Here are two unrelated pictures. I suffered a grievous bleed after giving blood. I am bruised and tender from elbow to wrist. This aspirin a day is no joke.  And here is Mimi. She is fine.

  1. Howard told me about kickball while we were on the trip. Since on a Sunday, I missed it. I was pretty good in my day, also. I also was enthused about the bloodmobile [have given 8 gallons] but it fell during our trip. Oh well.

  2. oooh, I clicked the text. Homers. Awesome dancing homer. Are you coming to the music this week at the cafe?

  3. Date and time please. The owner arrives today with his wife so I’m busy weeding and trying to get the place presentable for them. They might like to see some more of the activities around here since they are from back east.
