Happy Birthday to ME!!!

I have a nephew - my brother's youngest (38) - who's a rabid sports fan. He lives in Des Moines, Iowa but was raised in Boston and if it involves at least 2 guys and a ball in New England, he's all over it. Not as a participant but as a rabid observer. He's been a Red Sox fan way longer than I've been a Mariner fan. His mother has at least one Red Sox tattoo.

He and his wife love to travel around and see cool stuff. They have no children or pets and so they just go. Last Spring we exchanged texts about their coming here to visit. We joked about March - my 70th birthday and what kind of cake they would have to provide if they were here. His birthday is the first week in April so we joked about a joint party. I assumed it was just text talk. Turns out not.

I got a text from him this morning that the MLB 2019 schedule is out and Boston is here for the opening series! FATE!! he says. So after some back and forth and a note to my Mariner sales guy (any chance in hell of getting tickets to this series??? SURE!) we nailed it down. The Season opener is on my actual 70th birthday. We might not go to that one but for sure one, or more, of the other three games.

And, if that's not enough, now my brother says now he will come, too! This is going to be so cool. I'm pretty excited.

Just got a text from Frank (LJTourist) that he's at the game and it's hot and it's smoky. I'm so glad. He'll enjoy the heck out of it and I'd be sweaty and whiny and coughing and sorry I went. This is way better.

I made the sofa. I think this is just a test. It looks fine but it's got issues. The next one will be perfect. Even this one, with its imperfections is way cuter than the plain box.


Game time.
