It's hell getting old........





The Richmond Braves played the double header on Saturday........they won the 3:00 and went on to win the 7:00 game....winning the Governor's Cup for the AAA International league. Now they play the Pacific Coast winner in Oklahoma tonight.........it will be on ESPN2 at 8:00...I think!
and it was fun watching them celebrate, piling on top of each other, shaking up bottles of bubbly, spraying the crowd..........all good. I tried to capture it on my camera and this is what happens when you get old and try to take pictures, without your glasses and it's 10:30 at night.........hehe

now here's the other thing to talk about.....non-fun people! Yes, there are non-fun people in this world and I work with a lot of them. In my job I plan fun events for our team. As mentioned in another post, we went white water rafting....fun fun! And then there are just little events......so I planned a Texas hold em tournament. I did not even have enough people sign up to hold a tournament........WTF.......who wouldn't want to head down to the conference room and have some fun playing Texas Hold em! So while I'm trying to figure that one out, I put that on hold for now. Today, I had a kickball game.......best 2 out of 3 games. I had beer that I had iced down at 9:00 this morning so you know how cold it was......Beautiful weather, probably around 78 degrees. Out of 89 people on my team, 42 said they would come and 24 showed up. arghhhhhhhh Now who wouldn't do that! You don't even have to get in your car and drive.....we have the fields right at work!! Yes, I'm telling you this and I know a lot of you will find it hard to believe.........my Johnny boy can't believe it. You didn't even have to play.........all you had to do was get up from your computer, walk to the fields and drink some beer and watch your team mates laugh, fall, jump in the air, make sarcastic remarks to each other, hit each other hard with the kickball..........this is FUN people!

alright......that's enough of that. It's almost time to watch the Braves play...

later........

Go Braves -- good for them! And how exciting for Richmond!

I can't believe the people that you work with. Most people would give anything to work for someone who does such fun things for their employees. And I know you work hard to put these events together for them, so it's got to be very frustrating for you.

By the way Diane, I like your hair!

Lily girl - I know you know all about the non-fun people :)

Shay - thanks about the hair. I like it some days and some days not so much

Cheryl - More and more I realize we are so much alike....except the age part, my younger friend!
