I had hoped to post at least every other day or so, but sometimes you just can’t do what you want and have to to what you’re supposed to. But enough of the whining and on to the posting.
Softball season has begun, as well as baseball. Softball is a particular favorite because I am the announcer at all home games for the Jefferson High Lady Cougars. Mind you, I took the job because a wonderful lady by the name of Debbie Vickers wanted more than just a game for her daughters when they played softball. She wanted someone to announce games, play the national anthem, and keep things going. Well, it started out with a PA (public address) system they had purchased, which included a microphone and two good-sized outdoor speakers. When I started, my oldest daughter was still in high school. Six years later, I run hundreds of songs, special effects and voice clips off my laptop through the same P.A. And for the second year in a row, I’ve done the same for the school’s home varsity football games. It’s been great fun! Both teams play at the school. Check the school website for game times.
Heather Renaud brought her two children in last Friday. Some of you may remember young Cameron as one of our Most Beautiful Baby contestants and winner… he placed second. The other child is Cameron’s older sister, Kara. While we had to do a bit of waiting for Cameron to take off his explorer hat, we think the end result was worth the wait.
The intended end result was one of those fabulous cotton throw blankets we have been making. The blanket also contained the words “We Love You Grammy,” chosen by the kids.
There was only one more softball game this week, for which I was glad. But the good thing is that it wasn’t c-o-l-d outside and I was able to enjoy the game and announcing instead of shivering.
As the weather turns warmer, I’m going to be going out and taking pictures of nature. I hope to be able to share them with everyone. I love where we live and the access we have to beautiful wildlife and nearby river.
I’ll be in touch shortly. You do the same.
