Took a little batting practice this past weekend at Angel Stadium. I decided that the shoulders were up to it, and I had 20 bucks in my pocket to donate to The Harvest Food Bank. It is a great, but weird feeling, to be once again standing in the very same batters box that so many greats and childhood heroes have stood before I got in there and hacked it up. Just to look out into the batters eye in deep center, look down the lines and see what the pros see as they are batting, just awesome. This was the third time I have had the privilege of hitting in Angel Stadium. First time I was in High School during the CIF Championship game (we wont discuss that any further), two years ago during the same charity event, and this year. It is a special feeling, one I hope that I can start making a tradition to get the guys together, have a little baseball in the fall, and help donate some cash or food to a good cause at the same time.

Deconstruction has once again commenced on project "Jeepers Creepers". I had some friends over and we got the fender and parts of the front off. It feels good to work with the hands and get a little dirt under the fingernails. Hopefully over my vacation from work I can get a lot done, enough to notice anyway. More updates to come from the comeback trail.

I walked into Rite-Aid yesterday and there is Christmas stuff up, Jen text me last week and said that South Coast Plaza had all their Christmas decorations up, I see Christmas themed commercials on TV... I still have candy in a dish next to my front door!! STOP IT!!
Pretty soon there will be holiday ads running right after my grill cools down from 4th of July hotdogs. Look, not to be a Scrooge, but I plan on writing a proposition where there can be no mention of Christmas until at least a week before Thanksgiving.
