Did I see where a Yankee stole home the other day? I think left-handed batter Shane Spencer (or whoever #11 is these days) was batting.
Most of the Braves losses have been close games, if not extra innings. A break here or there and they’re running away with the division.
Nothing much else to report. Left work just after six. Stopped by to have my car looked at – nothing serious. This summer either me or M will need an extra car.
Today the guy comes about fixing the house. Repairs will be messy but nice. Tough that it comes right when a new car is needed.
Ceil cooked chicken and salad. Also sweet potato strips. M cooked his own buffalo chicken for his pizza. Watched The Voice, worked on the computer while M slaved over his paper.
