Well friends, I've been up for a half hour now so that our dog will let my wife sleep, oh by the way, it's 4:45 am. But Hey, Baseball season is almost here! No wait, the thought of that is making me even more tired. Besides, I think Nascar is better than baseball anyway. These are a few reasons why. Nascar's on an oval, baseball's on a square. In a baseball park, you could get hit by a little ball, on a speedway you could get hit by A CAR. Baseball has E.R.A., Nascar has M.P.H. Baseball has pinch hitting, Nascar has slam-drafting. And in Nascar the object is to guide your powerful racing car through 42 other cars just like yours safely avoiding the danger that is present at every turn, for 500 miles hoping to be the first to cross the finish line and be crowned champion. The object in baseball is to run home. That's MOSL's take on it.

I also wanted to say again how happy it makes me to be a part of this blogging neighborhood. I especially wanted to say to my dear friends Mama, and Papa D, Although I am very excited to have you guys back on the mothership, I'm very sorry why your coming back. While on my mission, I served part of it attending a 35 to 40 person branch in South Boston VA. I know full well of the unique and powerful spirit Ray spoke of. It is a real treat to be part of.

However, Welcome back Degraws.

Every community needs a man of steel - especially one who compliments me in public. *grin*

Mama D said...

What a wonderful hubby, letting your wife sleep! I agree with Patty -- I'm almost persuaded to be a Nascar fan. And actually with Ray, too -- being complimented is nice! Thanks TMOSL!!
