Ivoryton, Connecticut Day 37 (GA549)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted July 14, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m planning to depart later this morning.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California tending to some personal business. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 23rd.

 

 

Yesterday afternoon I went to another of my only grandson’s baseball tournament baseball games. He wears the #5 and aspires to be a major league catcher. Here are three action photos…

He had a great game. His team beat a team from New Jersey 6-1. He was part of an outstanding double play…pitcher to catcher to first base. He got to bat four times and got two doubles, a single and a walk. He batted in four of the six runs and scored once himself. Way to go, Eric!

 

 

 

 

 

A final look at my son’s home…

He has something that I do not have…

Today I’ll head towards Massachusetts for about a three-week visit with cousins and friends.

 

 

I’m planning to return for a six-day visit on August 5th just prior to my departure to the west coast.

 

 

Enjoying visiting family is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

As I approach my departure date…here are more photos of my only grandson Eric, who is one month away from turning 16…

Recently I bought him a major league model baseball bat as an early birthday present. Just like the pros he has marked the bat with his jersey number…

001

 

 

 

 

 

Just like the pros he has applied some pine tar. Prior to batting he applies the pine tar to his hands for a secure grip…

003

 

 

He chose the #5 for his jersey because the number 5 is worn by his long-time hero, David Wright who plays third base for the New York Mets. Other famous players who have worn the #5 are Joe DiMaggio, Brooks Robinson, Hank Aaron, George Brett, Lou Boudreau, Hank Greenberg and Johnny Bench.

 

 

Last weekend he participated in an eleven team playoff tournament. His team finished third. In four games he had a number of hits including two home runs. This weekend he will play in a twenty team playoff tournament. In about two weeks he will be traveling to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to play in a national playoff tournament. Way to go, Eric!

 

 

 

 

 

A few days ago he stopped by to introduce his girlfriend Stephanie. They have been “going steady” for 14 months…

A Boston Red Sox Showcase Day… (GA526)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted June 21, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

 

 

Mary has finally returned to her home in California. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

 

 

Last Monday was an interesting day. My only grandson Eric, his mom and myself drove about 30 minutes to American Legion Post Palmer Field in Middleton, Connecticut…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

Red Sox Showcase 061713 001

 

 

The reason for the trip was that only at the age of 15, Eric was invited to participate in a showcase for the Boston Red Sox professional baseball team. If you are a regular follower of my Blog, you’ll remember on several occasions I’ve mentioned that Eric aspires to be a catcher in the major leagues.

 

 

The purpose of a showcase is to allow the team…in this case the Boston Red Sox…to preview upcoming talent. In other words to get on their radar screen. Now that they know of Eric, he was told they would monitor his baseball schedule and at any given time a scout may be sitting in the stands watching his performance. If they like what they see…they will be in touch!

 

 

Here are some of the photos I took there…

 

 

 

 

 

The about 30 participants began with stretching exercises…

The guys in the blue shirts are the Red Sox scouting personnel…

More loosening up…

Behind the plate doing his thing…

Red Sox Showcase 061713 036

 

 

After this point, his dad (my son) who could not be present because he was away on a business trip, had asked me to capture lots of video (which I did) so that he and Eric could evaluate his performances at a later time. So, no more photos.

 

 

At age 15, Eric was in the youngest age group present and did an admirable job. Way to go, Eric and good luck in your future baseball efforts!

Ivoryton, Connecticut Day 9 (GA521)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV resort in Palm Desert, California. I’ll depart from here December 19th.

 

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted June 16, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

 

 

Mary has finally returned to her home in California. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

 

 

Yesterday my only grandson Eric, stopped by to visit. He will be 16 on August 11. He is an avid baseball player and aspires to be a catcher in the major leagues of baseball.

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

In these photos he is showing me his $400 professional-model catchers mitt. He has a very generous mom and dad. He’s very serious about his baseball, hence no smile…

He puts a baseball into the mitt and then wraps it tightly with a belt to help the mitt keep the proper shape…

042a

 

 

 

 

 

He stores the mitt in his 2015 high school year graduation bag…

043a

 

 

 

 

 

On this particular day I gave him a ride to the baseball field where he was to umpire a little league play-off game. He’s been umpiring for the last three years. He’s a sophomore in high school and at 5’11”, he’s the tallest person in the family…

Way to go, Eric!

 

 

Enjoying visiting family is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

INDIA, DEHLI, CHANDIN CHOWK MARKET

dsc09274-copy

Dehli is the capitol city of India, a diverse, swarming polyglot of people, vehicles, shops and sights. I traveled with my Grandson Theo, who posed with our Dehli City Guide, Manju, as we loaded into bicycle rickshaws at Chandin Chowk Market.

Here members of our group load in with a pre-arranged group of rickshaw drivers. Otherwise we’d be besieged by any driver trying to pick up a customer. The rules are, traffic is heavy, the driver may make a sudden stop. Brace your feet and hold on tight.

dsc09278-copy

As we begin, it is a bit disconcerting because our driver is going against the flow of traffic. Doesn’t it matter what side of the street you drive on?

dsc09283-copy

We are soon in the midst of the traffic and we are astonished at how varied and interesting the traffic is. Cars, along with trucks and people walking, motors, and tuk tuks, the green and yellow motors that serve as cabs are mixed together in what seems an impossible ability to get anywhere.

Vendors walk among the traffic selling goods if they can.

dsc09266-copy

This is just business, nothing unusual.

Traffic is slow. No one gets hurt and at some point you realize that driving a car might just be impractical. dsc09298-copy

These school boys, you know by their uniforms, are not the least bit upset by being crowded into a rickshaw and holding on to the outside.

dsc09289-copy

There are times the rickshaw is practically touching a tuk tuk and at one point a car was calling up to our driver,  indicating he wanted him to watch out for his side mirror which he was covering with his hand to avoid a miner collision.

dsc09390-copy

At an intersection we see one of those famous “loads” you see in pictures on the internet. People here work very hard and they carry impossible loads.

dsc09292-copy

We are getting closer to our destination but traffic never let’s up.

The rickshaws take us to Jama Masjid, the biggest temple in India where 25,000 people can worship in their square. We will return by bus. More Tomorrow.
