Ranger's Game

This is a color test.   Boring you say.  Not to me.   And it is font test.  Again, not boring to me.  
We continue.

Yesterday:   Wife, me, Son Roger & his wife Penney and 3 daughters, daughter Christine, Brother Pat and his daughter Jenifer and boy friend, plus neice Marion and her hubby - we all went to the Texas Rangers game --(change to blue color now in honor of Rangers) -- We sat in the nose bleed section  312 up on rows 21 and 22.   I was so worried about the sun.  No prob.  This was shaded from the moment we arrived - it was great.  Of course the players were the size of ants but I had my binoculars and long camera lense.  It made it better.  

My wife and I are not huge athletic fans of any kind.  She took a short nap towards the front of the show but the noise of the crowd kept waking her.  Pitcher was YU.  I can now say I saw YU pitch.  Rangers won 12 to 6 against the Toronto blue jays or something around that name.

The worstestes - bad - part was the singing .  Star Spangled by some cowgirl who couldn't find the right pitch and stay on it - well, now, she tried.  Even used a pitch pipe to start low enough.  It was too low for her voice and too high for her voice.  And every long tone became 10 others because that is singing style.  What is wrong with actually just singing the melody?    

A nice young man came out in the 7th and sang God Bless America.  Again, melody is just a small diagram to these singers.  You have to admire their guts in singing.  They do have the guts.  I wonder if they stand in front of a mirror at home and practice the vocal high-jinks (some would say hijinks)  (I prefer high junks)   Why can't a note be held straight out without visiting 10 others.

Besides that, it was an interesting day.  After the game, over to Marion's for talking and burgers and grilled chicken.  That was a yummmmmy bit.  The wife took a blackberry cobbler and a peach cobbler to top it off.  I won't mention the other stuff brought.

We got home about 10 and the dogs were so happy we arrived - suppertime!!!! Fritz!!!!!  Family time continues today as they all leave for home.   

Daughter Laura & Tom couldn't make it because of work and church obligations in Round Rock.

Final bit:  I have 5 dogs;  Roger brought 3 dogs; Christine brought 3 dogs.  Noisy.
