You Are The Magnet
Getting into the groove on my new job and spent a pleasant weekend with my wife for her birthday. We went to Vera Maes, one of our favorite spots, and afterwards a showing at Ball State University of "The Full Monty," which was a very good student performance. It was closing night, and though there were rumors of the full monty to be on display "for one night only" I only saw a couple of bare(ish) buttocks. Not that I'm complaining.
I did have an excellent Savannah pork chop at Vera Mae's. I have known a lot of fine pork chops in my time and I would say this was in the top five.
I have a feeling I am going to have a baseball summer. I have been reading the very good book "Moneyball" by Michael Lewis about how the Oakland As have built winners with no money and it got me interested in baseball a bit more this year. About five or six years ago the stars were in alignment and in one summer I ended up at the Cincy Reds, St. Louis Cardinals, Fort Wayne Wizards, and Indianapolis Indians. I ended up winning some Indy Indians tickets on a TV Auction last fall and cashed them in a few weekends ago on a very pleasant night at Victory Field after a really good meal at Weber Grill. It was the kind of meal that men fantasize of where there are four kinds of meat served and not one green leaf in sight.
On my summer wish list is Indy Indians (one down), the new Fort Wayne Tincaps, the new Richmond Riverrats, the Dayton Dragons, the Reds (I haven't been since their new stadium), and maybe for good measure the Cubs or Sox. And, if I can reach the far ends of the state, the South Bend Silverhawks and the Evansville Otters. If I can make any combination of at least five I will beat my previous record. Something a boy can dream on.
Getting very interested in keitai shosetsu. Google this if you don't know what I'm talking about.
