Baseball, Tuesday and Beautiful Babies

Oh Reggie Jackson, how I loved that guy! Mr. October, one of the greatest clutch hitters in baseball. I love my Colorado Rockies but my dad made my heart truly belong to the New York Yankees.
Bill Veeck, you were one smart baseball guy!
I understand how Nolan Ryan must have felt leaving baseball.   I L O V E baseball. I use to love the NFL too. But I felt betrayed. Politics and football do not mix. The league and the players ruined it for me. I do not wish to watch politics running around a football field.  I loved watching sports because it takes my mind off the real troubles in our world, not just the USA. Is change necessary today? Of course it is, but disrespecting the American flag isn't solving one issue.  No one thought about 9-11 or the Boston Marathon Bombing. They just took a knee without blinking an eye. The flag has done nothing to deserve your disrespect. Tom Brady didn't deflate footballs, the NFL did it. So I will continue, in my own heart,  to always love baseball best. I will mourn it's loss when winter comes and there is no baseball.

Joe DiMaggio said it best:
Jackie Robinson knew what racism was. He lived it daily. But it never stopped him from becoming a great ball player. An icon, people remember his name.
Tuesday was a great day! I watch my handsome great grand boy and today he and I went with Grammie Noelle and we drove to see our newest phamily baby :
He is so tiny, like a little loaf of bread. Oh how I loved cradling him in my arms and loving his smell, his sweet sounds and his beautiful smile. This is momma's twin. After two blonde haired blue eyed handsome  boys just like daddy, momma got her dark haired handsome boy number three. My grandgirl Tarrah is a super momma. She is never easily riled, loves her boys and is one of the very best examples of a momma who loves the job she was given.
These are the silly Fruit Loop cousins. Sharing a bowl of fruit loops while watching some Disney cartoons. My heart is smiling.
Vroom Vroom, Harrison's favorite sound when he hears a motorcycle. Several of my neighbors have super cool motorcycles, big "hogs", and oh how he loves to listen to them rev the engines! Boys and their bikes, hanging out with cousin Michael, the chill kid, cruising the patio on their bikes!
Grammie says I love this tiny tiny bundle of pure J O Y ! Benjamin James, you are stealing my heart.
My treasure is in my phamily. If I have to live on this earth I want to be here with all these babies. They are such a joy in my  life and boy oh boy do they make me smile.
Today was a lovely day. I am grateful that God gave me this beautiful day filled with sunshine and babies and boys and their bikes. Have a beautiful week.

Oh dear! Here I was reading and wondering WHAT in the heck I could say nice about baseball ... probably my least favorite thing in the whole world. LOL!, Love you anyway!

Then, you go and debut that beautiful boy! I love his name ... Benjamin James. What a beautiful family. In the end, that's what really matters, isn't it.

I used to love attending Dodger games when I lived in LA with my late husband. I'll never forget the 1981 World Series when they won against the Yankees. (Sorry about that.) Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Reggie Smith, Don Sutton -- What a season! Benjamin James is adorable, as are the rest of the kiddos. You are a blessed woman. xo

I agree about the politics spoiling and football. I do not watch it. I do, however, love to watch baseball. My hubby played softball with the local leagues right up into his seventies. He loved the game.

Your great grandbabies are just beautiful. Enjoy!! You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

Your grand-babies are adorable, but you already know that. They are indeed so very precious.

Have a fabulous day, Anne. Big hugs. ♥
