Baseball and Hera

Both my plate shoes and base shoes arrived yesterday. I ordered them the previous week, they shipped from Mississauga. For some reason, they used UPS which I don’t like. It took them over a week to arrive. UPS’s tracking information sucks. I prefer Purolator, they update tracking at every stop. I digress.

Anyway, so I now have proper plate shoes and good base shoes. Both are made by New Balance and are very comfortable, well, once they get broken in anyway. I will be able to break them in this weekend. I am doing two double-headers, Saturday and Sunday.

It’s going to be a warm weekend. Upper 20’s both days. I am going for dinner with friends on Saturday night, so I have booked a cheap motel room. I don’t want to go out for dinner after umpiring 2 games without having a shower, how nice of me, eh?

The dogs are booked in with my friends, so they’ll be good, and I will pick them up on my way home Sunday night.

Speaking of dogs, Hera is booked for potential surgery. We still need to do x-rays / MRI to verify, 100% what is wrong, but it is looking more and more like surgery will be needed. It’s booked for late August, after I return from Ontario. I am not going to get it done and then have to go to Ontario, leaving a crippled dog behind for someone else to care for, that would not be fair to Hera, nor my friends.

She isn’t limping too badly right now, so, I am still sort of hopeful that it was/is a bad strain, but we will see.

I got my vet to send a prescription for pain meds to the local vet here in the Pass. A 2 month supply was $140, so not too bad. I don’t want her to be in pain anyway, that’s for sure.

Well, it’s Friday, that means the weekend is here. Enjoy. I will have fun on the baseball diamonds in Calgary.
