It was one of the ten best days so far this year, clear and sunny, breezes just wishing they smelled of burning leaves. Friday night was cold enough to have to turn the heat on for the first time of the season. Just love that smell of roasting dust. I had to cook up another batch of hummingbird sauce last night - they are still here and feeding voraciously. Got out early to assure a copy of the NY Sunday Times and was surprised to find that Borders had 2007 calendars on display. I took a long time choosing this one: The Braves played their last game of this season at one today knocking the Astros out of the playoffs as the Astros did to the Braves last year. I almost went to the game alone but would have spent nine innings feeling weird and sorry for myself.

Ah, I know that weird and lonely feeling of sitting alone at a baseball game. I suspect that's why I haven't been this year. My friend Linda shared my addiction... it's one of the times I miss her.

Too bad we couldn't find one game where the Braves and the A's are playing at the same time. We could sit in our individual seats and text message each other about the great plays, send photos of player's cute butts... describe our beers and snacks (me: garlic frieds that will repel vampires for the next 2 years!!)
