I was supposed to umpire a double header this morning. I left the house shortly after 8am for a 9am start. The ball diamond was pretty close and I got there by 8:15. There were a number of diamonds in close proximity, no games. Interesting. So, I call the scheduler who is also supposed to be umpiring and he isn’t home or at least he doesn’t answer. I leave a message. I also called the guy that I umpired with yesterday to see if he has a cell phone, didn’t get him but he was also supposed to be umpiring today.
So, as of 3:43pm today, I have no idea where the mixup is/was. Oh well.
Anyway, I decided to take Zeus and Blondie for a walk in a Provincial Park near Banff. It was a 1:10 drive but 40 minutes of that was getting out of Calgary – what a massive city…
I took a few photos which I will upload somewhere at sometime. The mountains were awesome. We walked along a trail for about 2 kilometres and then turned around to head back. I was getting hot and tired and the dogs were panting like crazy. I gave them plenty of water once we returned to the Jeep and we drove home – not a bad afternoon at all.
They are now sleeping on the couch as I type this entry. I am thinking about a nap myself – lots of fresh air will do that do ya. So will getting up at 3:45 in the morning, but that’s another story.
Update – I did have a nap, with the dogs. We slept for over 3 hours. 🙂
