20190616 + Father's Day

20190616 + Up in the am slow, no baseball today, rained too much last night so everything local cancelled. D still had his game in MI but that was 5 hrs away... Got up and around and G&I ran to Kroger to get some cookout supplies and cash. Headed home, ate our Reese's reward on the way, Got stuff put away and then LJG&I headed to Creekside for the Jazz & Blues Fest. We walked around, listened to some music, we knew one of the guys playing and chatted with them after their set for a bit. We headed over to the rides section of the event and the boys didn't want to ride anything, too much 'stuff for little kids', but we did get a funnel cake and huge lemonade. We meandered back through town and stopped at a couple tents and ran in to some more people we knew and then headed home (reminder to self, not worth the $40). Hung out on the back porch for a bit and then G&I had a corn hole tournament. After that J&G attempted to play spike ball, it was a disaster and G went in screaming and crying... Gma&paW showed up and we had a nice cookout. J&GpaW worked on the Shopsmith and then JG,GmaW&I played a couple rounds of corn hole. After Gma&psW left it wan't long before  and his teammates showed up from their butt whooping and 5hr drive. Some of the boys left and D& Javen helped me get the lathe re-positioned and started creating a bat. Everyone gone and boys ready for bed. up late watching Game of Thrones.

20190615 - Shed Work

20190615 - Up early in the am to see D and his teammates off as they head to MI for some games this weekend, they are taking L's big car. We got J's friends picked up and then LG&I headed to the baseball fields for a game. It was a good game and they barely pulled it off but got the W. After the game we headed to BWs for lunch with the team. Home and J had the basement and his room nice and clean. LJG&I then headed to the shed to do our annual clean out. It was sprinkling a bit but we are pretty good at it now so we got it all cleaned up before the heavy rains came. We hung out at home and watched a movie.

20190614 - Feather Game

20190614 - Up in the am and in to work. Had an interesting morning... Finished the day at the desk and headed out in good time to get to G's game in New Albany. Got to the game and L&J joined me. The boys had a good game but G was moved all over the place. The boys won and we all headed home. J had some friends come over to spend the night and Penn swung over for a couple beers when he dropped Conor off. We had a nice chat and then headed in to listen to the boys playing their video games into the wee hours of the morning...

20190613 + Lonie's Bday Pics

20190613 + Up in the am and in to work. D to work, J listing on ebay and L&G went to DR for G's physical and he was so scared to get his blood drawn that he was hysterical... Had a meeting with right out of the gate and got frustrated with internal BS too... People are bugging Lonie today as I have challenged everyone to get a hug pic with him for $1 each, Lonie hates hugs and pics ;-) 

Headed over to 25 for a quick meeting and then headed home. J&I headed out to the post office and auction house in Reynoldsburg. D hung out and shined up the rails on the Shopsmith before running G to practice. After we picked up our stuff we headed to a church parking lot where J did much better with his maneuverability. On the Wood Werks, a huge wood working store where we found a baseball blank we could use on the Shopsmith so D could try to make his own bat. On to Subway where it took forever to get our dinner. Home and looked at our purchases and ate. D&G home they ate while we watched 'The Kid that would be King'. Cute movie, I slept through part of it.. I headed to bed to watch some Game of Thrones, D&J up and cleaned up and to bed. L&G stayed up watching the NBA Championship game.

20190612 - Postponed

20190612 - Up in the am and in to the big office for the day. On the screens all day getting things done. L had a retirement party today, D didn't have to work and J had driving school. Was at the desk all day at the big building until late. Ran home, got L and headed to D's game that was rained out as soon as we got there. D came home with us and we got something to eat and then D headed out to his teammates, J&G on Xboxes and L&I watched some Game of Thrones.

20190611 - Lonie's bday

20190611 - UP in the am and in to the new office. Worked on finance stuff all morning and then had a process meeting in the afternoon. Headed home late and had dinner with LJ&G and then we attempted to have J drive us to D's baseball game. J's car was dead so we tried to start it with the battery charger and it wouldn't start so we left the charger on and I drove. It was a good game against a team that had some boys we know on it. I chatted with some of the dads and L chatted the whole game with her new friend. The Braves were winning 6-2 until a Grand Slam was hit and then another home run and suddenly they were down by 1 when the game was called due to darkness... 2nd game suspended with these guys... We headed home and swung through an ice cream store for a treat and then home to shut down for the night. L&I watched some Game of Thrones.

20190610 - Home Field

20190610 - Up in the am and headed in to work. L got J registered for driver's ed and D is working a couple hrs at the baseball place today. Had a frustrating morning at work so digging in and focusing on cleaning out inbox. Finished the day and headed home, cancelled Bible Banger early. Picked up L, that dropped G off at practice and L&I headed to D's game on his old Gahanna field. The McClains brought G to the game after practice and I hung out and talked to coach shade and Andy Reed for a bit. D's game was good and they won against a really good team. Home and got to relax instead of running out.

20190609 + Columbus Braves are Champs!

20190609 + Up in the am and got going. D in Troy OH for more baseball, J heading to Mallon's for the day with a couple of friends, LG&I headed to Powell for G's double header. G's team won the first game in a blow out 10-0. We had a small delay and then game 2 started. L&I stayed through G's at bat and then left G there and headed to Troy OH to watch D play in the Championship game. It took us about an hour to get there and we stopped to get a case of water for the boys. Made it to the game as it started and D was on the bench. D's team was ahead 5-0 and then a kid hit a grand slam and suddenly it was 5-4 :-o even more surprising was the relief pitcher was D! D did pretty good pitching and got the 3 outs they needed without letting anyone score and recorded his first ever K against Kyle, his roommate from last year. The next inning the first batter crushed a triple off of him so they pulled the shortstop to pitch and D went to Short. Couple seconds later and D made an amazing diving play flipping the ball over his shoulder as he went down to get the last out and seal the Championship Win 6-4! D headed home with his teammates and L&I went to the Submarine Shop in downtown Troy for dinner. L made arrangements for J&G to get home and and we headed home and caught up with J&G before D came in and we all got caught up and headed to bed for a great weekend of baseball. Winger boys went 9-0 for the weekend!
