From 27 to 87, and back again

Happy Birthday Bob!

There are three generations in this picture.

Ignore the one on the left for the moment, he will get his due later.

Doris and Rey and Bob share an interesting math situation this year.
The elders were born in ’27 and are now (finally for Bob) 87.
The younger was born in ’87 and is now 27.

I do realize that we are well into October, and that hardly seems possible.
I am supposed to be blogging about our summer vacation, but that may have to wait for our winter vacation.

Of course there are a few more pictures to provide from Carl’s day in the sun (or under the stars).

Before the game (see the previous post – from September), we were allowed to hang out around the home plate area. They even let us into the dugout briefly. Rick Waits happened by while we were down there. Carl has bent his ear spoken with him throughout the year, and he came down to join us for a picture.

The first pitch – nicely framed with the big board in the background. (By a real photographer.)

And finally, the “catcher”, the pitcher, and the coach.

It was a great time.
I am sorry I don’t have more pictures from the game, but this was one time when it was fun to just enjoy the moment.

I intend to enjoy today (or is it tomorrow) – well pretend it is the 21st – as well, and celebrate growing old with Bob (the elder).
Although I guess I am really growing old with the middle generation, Carl (the younger by a bit).
I have planned a day full of meetings! (Really, from 8:30 to 4:30, with a short break for lunch)
And then the same gang (minus Dennis who is in Portland) plan to convene at our house for baseball and barbecue (in honor of Kansas City).
