The Work Week

I am going to catch up the work week of May 7-11 in one post.
I really need to move on to other things, and it was a quick, long week.

Monday May 7th

Jay and Carl = regular work day.
Mariners = Tigers in town.

Work was work.
The Mariner game was a bit chilly, and it was slogging along.
They kept it close, but the Tigers were up 2-0 going into the bottom of the 9th.
The Tigers brought in Dotel to pitch the 9th.
Problem for the Tigers was that Dotel could not seem to throw a strike.

  • Walked Ackley, man on 1st
  • Walked Ichiro, men on 1st and 2nd
  • Wild pitch, men on 2nd and 3rd
  • Passed Ball, Ackley scores, Ichiro to 3rd
  • Montero (Jesus – not Freddy) hits a double, Ichiro scores
  • Seager sacrifice bunt, Montero to 3rd
  • Jaso hits a sacrifice fly to shallow right field. Montero tags at 3rd and races home, barely avoiding the tag.

Fans go home happy.

Tuesday May 8th

Work and a Mariner game.
Verlander started for the Tigers, but the Mariners were able to stay close. Down by 2 again as they entered the bottom of the 9th.

  • Carp walks, man on 1st.
  • Saunders walks, men on 1st and 2nd. (Pinch run Figgens for Carp)
  • Ackley strikes out. 1 out.
  • Ryan hits into a fielder’s choice 6-4. Men on 1st and 3rd. 2 out.
  • With Ichiro up, Ryan steals 2nd. Men on 2nd and 3rd. 2 out.
  • Ichiro is intentionally walked. Bases loaded, 2 out.
  • Montero hits a foul pop-up, caught by the 1st baseman.

Mariners are not able to pull off the 9th inning heroics 2 days in a row.
Fans leave to find the warmth of their cars and homes.

Wednesday May 9th

Work and Mariners.
Only this time Jay goes home after work, and Carl shares the game with a friend.

As it turns out, this was the shortest game of the bunch. Just over 2 hours long, and a Mariner’s win 2-1.

Thursday May 10th

Work, no Mariners.
And an evening home to try to catch up on all of the things that have not been getting done.
And the architect and contractor spent a bit of time (during the daytime) trying to get an estimate put together for our consideration. This will be provided to us next Friday, so we can better scope the project design.

Friday May 11th.

Work and sunshine.
Jay finally saw the reported Osprey nest on the top of the cell tower located next to our office. There is an adult (or two) and a few juveniles. Could see the nest, and one bird on board, and hear them talking to one another.

Considered an early evening walk, but Carl had been on his feet most of the day, so instead tried to catch up on even more things left hanging.

I should note that this blog post has not noted all of the yard work that Carl has been doing. Weeding, mowing, cleaning, and he is out edging as I write. 

Weeding around the driveway – which does not show the relatively good shape of the lawn.


And it is probably a good time for me to stop now that I have reported on the last 8 days. I just wrote “wright” and “right” trying to get to “write.”
