We Got Baked!

Jim says:

Yesterday my 12-year-old grandson Eric and I went to a AA minor league ballgame at the home field of the New Britain Rock Cats. They are a farm club for the Minnesota Twins. Unfortunately, they are at the bottom of their division and got beat by the Reading (PA) Phillies 8-2.

The view from our seats.

Another unfortunately was, according to the field signboard, we got baked at 98 degrees for 3.5 hours! Despite the high heat and humidity, I really enjoyed the companionship of my grandson. He really knows the game of baseball and kept my clued in on what was going on during the game.

Eric chowing down.

Upon return to my son’s home, I retreated with my book to his breezeway while the motorhome’s air-conditioner worked on bringing down the temperature there. Once livable there I continued my reading. Later in the evening I enjoyed Volume two of On The Road with Charles Kuralt. Another great two-hour program about the interesting people and places encountered while living the RVing lifestyle!

On The Road – Volume 2.

Today my nine-year-old grand-daughter Jaime are going to the movies where the theater will be air-conditioned!
