Wednesday's Word: Blogiversary

Yesterday (August 17) was the one-year anniversary of my blog. My first post was photos of the grandkids at a Saints game. To celebrate, here are some new pix of the kids at the ballpark.

Augie has made friends with the umpires, and the crew chief recently invited him to join the umpire crew as they rubbed mud on the balls before the game. (Yes, the balls come shiny in the box and have to be rubbed with special mud to take the shine off.) He has no idea what an honor that is, or how unusual it is for umpires to emerge onto the field, turn to the stands, and call, "Hi, Augie!" Not only that, they gave him an official American Association umpire's cap.

On the same evening, ViMae was invited to carry balls out to the umpire. One of the Saints' traditions is that each year a new trained pig totes balls to the umpire. On occasion a fan gets to do the job; Augie's done it a few times. ViMae was wearing her new tutu (which I had just made) and the pig wore his tutu, and they were both very cute. (I'll post a better shot of the tutu another day.)

Congratulations on One Year!!!

We have a very good Division II baseball program here at Alluvial Flood Plain State University... it's one of the few programs that allow the foul balls to be kept... I always seem to end up with quite a few of them. I enjoy giving them to the little kids that one can find around the ball parks...

I have never been to a Saints game but those who have tell me it's great fun. I would have loved to see little Vi in her tutu with the Saint's pig. Looking forward to pictures of that!

Well, happy blogiversary! I hadn't realized that we began our blogs just nine days apart. Perhaps between that, second marriages, and wonderful grandchildren, we should get together more often! ;^)

Congratulations!

Happy 1 year in this great world of blogging! Here's to many more. And those photos? Delightful as always.

Allyson said...

Happy Blogiversary!! I know that it has been a fun-filled year, complete with adorable photos, funny stories, and some flashbacks to the good ole days. And when we were on a tour of the Baltimore Orioles stadium last year, they told us that there is a river...somewhere...where they have the mud harvested specifically for roughing up game balls in professional baseball. Apparently, it's used for that purpose only and the people who own the business of dredging the mud make a LOT of money at it. Who knew such businesses exist??

Jeanie said...

I wish I hadn't been away for your blogaversary, but accept my belated congratulations. I remember my first -- It felt astounding that I still had anything to say! I hope your continues a very long time!
