Good morning all. Just found out that Darryl Strawberry will be in a town 54 miles away on Sunday for a Faith Day. I'll be heading that way for our company picnic so I might have to go a little early and see if I could get a ball signed. Only problem is the picnic is at 12 and Faith Day is from 10-2, so I might miss out on a decent opportunity.

One thing I like about living in a small town is the sense of community. Sunday evening there was a car accident with 5 people being killed. A mom and two daughters from town were 3 of them. Tonight one of the restaurants is donating 100% of the proceeds from taco sales to the family and tomorrow the donut shop is donating 100% of the proceeds of donut sales to the family as well. I was running some errands for work this morning and a family we know was out front having a bake sale. The kids, who are probably middle school aged, wanted to help raise money and baked all day yesterday. I turn around the block to stop and buy some cookies. I was told everything the kids had made were already gone, but other people in town have been dropping off baked goods for the kids to sell as well.

Afternoon at, at work, bleh

Forget the picnic, go see Straw!

It's tempting. Only problem is the event is outside for 4 hours and who knows when Strawberry will be there for it.

Sorry to hear about the accident. I live in a rural area and the same things happen here when a local family is in need.

Glad you are retired. Sounds like you don't have time to work!
