Friday 55...


I'm not much for
conscious prayer
but I do some
silent thinking
that could be
construed as such
I guess.
Some days sling
that make me duck
for cover
as I stumble
grasping, angry
and frightened
Searching for
the right thing
to do again.
Always the awkward
Knocked to my knees.
Sometimes screaming.

( a weekend 55 word challenge found here)
Thank you, Walking Man.

Wanna see what Cleveland's pitchers do when they're not pitching?...

Probably not, but I'll show you anyway...

 They (Cookie Carrasco and Trevor Bauer, mostly) make mini-balls 
representing all the players on the roster.

Yan Gomes, Brandon Guyer, Andrew Miller.

Jose Ramirez


Josh Tomlin, Cody Allen

Trevor Bauer with a drone on his head.

and of course, Manager Terry Francona. 

If you're familiar with the team, you'll recognize some of the
personality details of individuals. If not, maybe just appreciate
the creativity of a bunch of jocks.

Class acts all around...

Mutual admiration society.
(click above for full article.)

"CLEVELAND -- When it was over, Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas turned and tipped his cap to the Tribe dugout, the 34,025 in attendance at Progressive Field rose to their feet and applauded the home club and the members of said club strolled out of the dugout, turned to the audience and applauded them right back."

Makes me proud to be a fan.

Unless Hurricane Irma takes a sharp right turn
very soon, all of Florida will be hit hard this weekend.
I'm worried for my friends.

In 2004, I huddled in my home for 24 hours after
Hurricane Charlie crossed the state and hovered over
Daytona. The winds had dropped to 100 mph by then
but I'd never been so scared.

May all the folks stay safe. 

Now there are three ...Kattia, Irma, Jose.
