Have I already Said Drat?

There’s Manny being Manny … and then there are the Phillies being the Phillies.  They blew a hard-won 8th inning tie last night in the top of the 9th and then went down quietly to defeat.  The only good thing about it was (selfishly) I got to go to sleep earlier than expected.

Cliff Lee’s on the mound today.  Can we turn this thing around and get back to NY?  Stay tuned.

On a happier note .. congratulations to Boltgirl, who is sharing tales of her inspiring (and yes, nauseating) return to the gym after spending weeks laid up with the flu.  It’s way more than 67% good … keep it up!  (I’m inspired and will be joining you shortly … yup … tomorrow … definitely!)

!WoodstoveHollyCornblog and CharlieHopbrew visited the lake this past weekend and fired up the newly re-installed woodstove.  Sounds like the newly insulated floor is really helping a lot on the warmth front … maybe winter visits won’t be out of the question!

They got in some kayaking … got soaked … and came into the cozy house for cheesesteaks and beer.

It’s looking great, guys … all your hard work has certainly paid off!

!Cloudy HalloweenCan’t wait to see it in person.

As I wait to get myself back on the exercise track, though – there’s nothing better than watching the USWNT run around on the pitch.  Want to watch?  How about that recent 1-0 win over Germany?

Here it is, in “chapters” on YouTube.  If you double click the video below (where it says You Tube) and move over to YouTube to view it, you’ll be able to access the rest of the segments of the match.



Here’s the segment with Abby’s goal – @ the 34th minute … Pia looks so happy!


Oh yeah – and in some good Philly news (on the phootball phront) the Eagles took it to the Giants and moved into first place in the NFC East.  Now THAT’S the way to play a NY team.  Are you paying ttention, Philllies?

    Well, apparently it is the Cubs model.

    I’ve heard your stationary bike is powerful that way. Does it come in a Cubs model? Why not; the wheels have already come off, yeah?


  3. LOL – I just got off the bike after @ 13 miles. Am fully committed to pedal for the duration, tho’! Lovin’ it at the moment!

    Keep pedaling, JordanCornblog, keep pedalin’!!!!!!

    I suspect that what you consider “fighting form” is a much higher bar than I tend to set for myself … but that said, I guess it’s all good. I’ll ride the stationary bike tonight as I pray for the Phillies to stay alive. (And then, of course, if they do, I will feel compelled to ride the bike for the rest of the World Series, because, clearly, that will have an impact on the outcome.)

    Hope you get some fall weather out there … whatever that actually means in AZ. Hoping to get over to see the house in @ 3 weeks. Usually I spend a small chunk of time in November there but can’t this year – too crazy at work (and too many World Series responsibilities). Next year, hopefully!

    Thanks for the shout-out. Good lord, I’m going to need inspiration in the form of Clydesdales to drag me back in there today. I hope your return to fighting form goes smoother!

    Also, I’m coveting the lake house, and the kayaking, and the wood-burning stove, and the beer. It’s going to be 90 degrees here all week and I needs me some fall, in a big way.


So, what do you think?
