PS While my own mom has a fondness for fragranced, moisturizing body lotions, she has enough in her bathroom and on her vanity to last her a good long time. So instead I got her a "brag bag," a canvas shopping tote, personalized with a photo of her grandsons.

Go, Cubs, Go!

This 5-1 victory over the Dodgers was a real day-brightener. I enjoyed the last 2 1/2 hours very much. Thank you, gentleman. Have a safe flight back to Chicago.

What a difference a day (or two) makes

Yesterday felt better than Monday, and today I feel even better than yesterday. I hear/feel a bit of gurgling in my belly, but that could just be the Premium saltines on their natural journey. I'm going to add a banana and maybe some Fig Newtons to my water and ginger ale diet today.

It's amazing how happy such things can make you after a bout of food poisoning! Also, I haven't watched baseball in days. The Cubs have been in LA and the games just start soooooo late for this sick old fan. But today's is a day game! I'll have it on while work.

"It's a beautiful day for a ball game, for a ball game, today/the fans are out to get a ticket or two/from Walla Walla, Washington to Kalamazaoo .."
