Tidbits

Mariners: Yesterday’s game, at over 3 hours, was not as quick as the day before  (2 hrs 35 mins), but it was a win. The win came on a single with the winning run scoring from second. It was cold, but not wet, and there were all sorts of dogs in the park for Bark in the Park. Although if they weren’t shown on the big screen,  and you weren’t seated near their section, you could have missed it entirely. 

What is not going to be enjoyed in person is tonight’s game. I had made all sorts of special arrangements to get to and from work without needing to park downtown. And then found out we don’t have tickets for tonight’s game. So I bailed on my arrangements and drove to work myself. 

Traffic: The idea to get in early part of the arrangement stuck, so I left about 1/2 hour earlier than normal. OMG it was more like a video game than a commute. Cars changing lanes, speeding around, driving fast enough for a few to be sitting on the side of the road with flashing light friends. 

Mistaken: Carl was walking to the stadium from his parking spot a few days ago and had dodged one street off of the main street to avoid bothering a man who was dancing on the sidewalk to his own tunes. On the parallel less traveled road he noticed a pile of aerosol can caps and cans without their sprayers. Remembering our encounter with a huffer from a few days earlier he stopped to take a picture.  While he was fumbling with his phone a van pulled up,  opened their door, and asked if he needed anything. When he stood up and looked at the van they said, “you’re not homeless!” Carl agreed and thanked them for asking.

This reminded us of the time Rey arrived home from school with a bag of clothes given to him as he got on the school bus. He always wore sweatpants,  and sometimes holey ones …

Sunny day and time for work.

    Is that an owl on top of the tree trunk? Is it a live one?

      Yes, it’s an owl.
      No, it’s not a live one.
      It doesn’t scare anything away.
      There is a robin that regularly perches on top of the owl’s head.
