This past weekend, like most weekends, zoomed by. I umpired two double-headers so that kept me busy. They were good games. On Saturday, it was two Babe Ruth A league games. For 13-14 year olds, the quality of the ball was excellent, not a lot of walks and some good defence. I was impressed. Sunday, it was the AA league and two more excellent games.
I also have a house guest for a few days. One of my co-workers had to go away for a few days and her BF is working out of town so I have a 9 month old German Shepherd mix puppy to join my pack of 3. They are all getting along well which is nice and Lita has decided that I can be trusted, she actually likes me now.
This coming weekend is a long weekend, it will be nice having the extra day off. I am doing some umpiring and have a baseball meeting, the last one until after the season ends. All of the uniforms have been distributed and swaps that were needed have been done as well. I will do the job again next year, if the help is still needed which I am sure it will be.
Today is a sad day in history. Two years ago, I had to put Zeus down. It was one of the hardest things I ever had to go through and I still miss him, even with three (and right now four) dogs running around. You were a good dog Zeus. 🙂
