I'm glad it wasn't any worse than it was. At least there was no need to call any of your emergency services friends. It's not my style to poke fun at that sort of thing. I hope you're not disappointed. Yeah, peanuts and cracker-jacks. It's been ages since I had cracker jacks but it was never really one of my passions. I'll just wait for dinner and be satisfied with that. I hope your tumble didn't startle Millie.

I'll forgive Pagan (our CF) tipping that one ball and nudging it over the fence. He had two spectacular diving catches earlier in the game when it really mattered. That would have been a hell of a catch if he'd made it. I'll be happy to remind you of start times for future games. Fox will be broadcasting all of them. Oops...that story was a repeat? Not surprising...I like telling that one. As an actor I like Cruise. He works hard and does all his own stunts. Off the screen I don't have a great deal of respect for him but we all live our lives and we all make mistakes. I have seen Men of Honor...loved it. Ah well...it was a fun night of baseball. We have to do it again tomorrow.

And THAT'S the way it's done. I really didn't think we were going to beat Verlander tonight but the boys handled him fine. I'm glad I could help you out with the score keeping. I hope my Giants provided you with a bit of entertainment there at the end. You would have enjoyed the earlier innings even more. There were lots of exciting stories coming out of the night.

Squirrel MVP was a cute LOL. The Giants are up 6-1 right now so I'm having a fun evening. It's too early to celebrate though. Detroit has some big bats. Did you enjoy SVU? I'm guessing they caught the bad guy. I know you wouldn't have intended to embarrass K. My dad had fun with that one time. He and Mom came to visit me at work from time to time. I managed a couple offices during my tenure. When they came to visit me for the first time at my second office, Dad walked up to my receptionist and said: "Is my widdle boy here?" I could hear him from my office and I busted out laughing.

Here you go: http://cheezburger.com/6702966272 My kitties have always loved the sparkly balls, but Jerry always took it the farthest. He put them in the food bowl, in the litter box, in the water bowl and in my bed and shoes. The he stopped about 10 years ago. Now he carries them around when he stumbles upon one (since he's so blind) and then he talks to it very softly while carrying it around and he brings them to his bed on the floor since he can't get up on my bed anymore (even with kitty stairs). He's freaked when he's high up because he doesn't know how to get down without help - h' fallen off too many times. Only a few more weeks until he turns 19 on 11/14. Oh my. I just love him so very much. Hugs to you!

Actually, the Braves played a one game playoff against the Cardinals to determine the wild card in the National league. Obviously the Cards won as they are the team we just beat. NY NL would be the Mets. I would have kicked that guy to the curb, too. Ya gotta be careful of them yankees...especially a yankee that's a Met's fan. I still say it's a reasonable fear.You may never have intended to embarrass K and indeed he may not have been in any danger of being embarrassed but it's happened to so many young men one has to be amazingly trusting to not have that fear. It's funny that I had the same reaction to CSI NY as you. I really respect Gary Sinise and expected to dig the show but it fell flat with me. CSI Miami never did anything for me either. Cruise never appealed to you? That seems strange. I agree on Jolie. I say Pitt is a fool. Have you gotten out with Millie today? We've done our walks but we've settled in for the afternoon. The Series opens tonight so we're just looking forward to the start.

I've been going nuts with the teenager who now has bipolar and Aspergers disorder. I think she ought to be classified as a nuclear weapon but so far . . . I love her I really do and she's been struggling with mood swings and trying to get the right medicine to help her with both issues. She is also starting therapy with a clinical psychologist. I feel so bad because she has such great potential and is smart as hec but all the emotion and tunnel vision stuff gets in the way. She can't just live her life and enjoy it. Anyway I always have to laugh when they say "Bipolar sufferers" actually it's the people around them who suffer if they don't get the help that they need. This is the second time I've been forced to live with someone who has it. My father had it full blown and was just awful to deal with. We are trying to get the right medicine and counseling in place so she can function. It took all my funny away for awhile. She also has insulin issues which is just lovely on top of everything else. I've been worried sick out of my head.

The Giants didn't sweep the series...they swept the remaining games of the series. And they had to do that since they had gone down three games to one. The Giants are National League. The Braves certainly were a dominant team for many years. That pitching staff was amazing. People sure are passionate about their college football...particularly down south. There's a lot of pride and smack talk down there in the SEC. Poor K...afraid that Ma will embarrass him. It's a reasonable fear though. There have been times that Mom embarrassed me but I never loved her any less. And god know how many times I've embarrassed her. Miss Flops Alot is a great nickname. I love the fact that she's so efficient in her pursuit of the ball...no need to raise the body up...she can conserve her strength. Danson actually does a pretty fair job on CSI LV. I also like the addition of Elizabeth Shue. I have to admit I miss Marg, though.

As it turned out, the Giants swept the rest of that series and will open the World Series against Detroit tomorrow night. I may need consoling later but right now I'm a happy guy. Cooking shows aren't for everyone. It does take a current interest in cooking to make it appealing. I do enjoy the murder mystery/crime scene drama as well as court room stuff, too. Right now I watch CSI Las Vegas and The Good Wife. Tuesday nights are one of my favorite though with the two NCIS shows. Do you think you would have enjoyed being a cop? That's one damn tough job. You see people at their absolute worst as a rule. It would be very tough to not become jaded. How nice that you're getting some good weather to enjoy late in the season. We actually had some rain for a couple days. Not any amounts to get excited about but it had been a long while since we'd seen even modest amounts. I do hope we get a wet winter as we definitely need it. How was your outdoor time with Millie? Did she get some fresh leaves? I guess it's not quite right to call them fresh when they're dead leaves but they're newly dead so maybe that counts. So J does birthday parties for the kitteh, eh? Do you do them for Millie as well? I've never been one to do birthday parties but I suspect I'm something of an outlier on that. My friend Fauxpaws plays ball with her cat, Elf, too. Cats definitely enjoy playing with a good paper ball but I don't think retrievers have and fear of being replaced.
