The Excitements

We're in the middle of watching a documentary about Dock Ellis.  I had to stop watching because of chronic fatigue syndrome, but we'll finish it up today.  You should watch this if you want.  I kind of wish I could go to a professional baseball game this summer and catch a ball in the outfield.  It's been forever since I've been to one.  I also have the idea of using #1 Son's mitt to throw a baseball around with Husbandman this summer. I want to work on my throwing arm.

I listened to a Moth podcast today with a talk by Anne Driscoll.  She is a journalist and social worker who was working on the Innocence Project in Ireland when some hooligan tried to steal her phone.  Anne basically took charge and fought with the guy.  He eventually took off running. Let's face it, if this happened to me, I would just hand over the phone and wonder if I should run after the guy and offer him some extra cash. But I kind of wish that I could get physically aggressive with a ne'er do well.  And then blog about it here on alittleleeway.  Husbandman, if you're reading this, (which of course you are, why wouldn't you?), let's practice a little bit of sparring this afternoon.  You can practice the ne'er do well role. I'll be Anne Driscoll.

This just in.  Breaking news.  Some emotionally unstable humans dumped four one week old kittens in a bag near the dog park where my dad and my brother walk their canines.  My sister Faith knows how to take care of one week old kittens.  She has to get up and feed them even in the middle of the night.  I wish I knew how to do that.  I don't want to own a pet because I'm pet phobic, but I would definitely like to be someone who could bring sick and injured animals back to health. GO FAITH!  We need pictures, Faith.  Also, readers, if you want a beautiful, extremely well cared for, kitten, let me know.  I can make this happen.

I found out that when we're in Prince Edward Island we might get to see the NORTHERN LIGHTS!!!!  This has been a dream of mine since I was 18 months old.  Everyone I know is always raving on and on about how they so enjoy their observations of the northern lights.  Well guess what people?  In a matter of days, I too, might see the Northern Lights.  If you pray, please pray that the Northern Lights will be seen by me (and Husbandman) any time between June 4 and June 10 of this year, 2015.

Okay, peeps.  I'm outtie! Time to practice the ukulele.

I'm on KC's wavelength here. I was just about to comment that a post like this is exactly why I love this blog so much. It's going to be a good blogging summer. I can just tell.

I have to agree... there's a lot of good stuff here. I, too, would like to say Go Faith. Her name is obviously fitting... just saying.

That's awesome Faith is stepping up to the plate. And you get to see the NL? You're killing me! That's just awesome. Well done with this blog entry, my friend.
