Bits and Pieces

The trip to Lisle went well yesterday and I'm hoping to post pictures tomorrow. Today, things were pretty relaxed as we recovered.

I got to watch the end of the Cubs / Cardinals game where the Cards dropped three runs on Kerry Wood in the ninth inning, aided -- no doubt! -- by the Fox announcers who awarded the Player of the Game to Aramis Ramirez with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Ramirez having hit the homer that gave the Cubs the lead shortly before. Moments later, Rick Ankiel singled up the middle driving in the tying and winning runs to go with his homer earlier in the day, so I'm thinking that maybe Ankiel ended up deserving that particular honor. I'm also thinking that he preferred the victory. :)

After dinner, we called up Bob and Anne Passovoy and took advantage of the lovely evening to drive down there and present them with their Filk Hall of Fame plaque and citation. We'd meant to do this the previous weekend, but had completely spaced that they'd be at Anthrocon working on the security contract there. They were delighted to get it and we then spent a pleasant time chatting before heading home.

Low impact days can be a very good thing.
