Keeping the Faith

Today, the weather was soupy. Gray and wet and windy and foggy. Bears weather, not Cubs weather. You could argue today's game shouldn't have played.

But oh, I'm glad it was!

At one point, my boys in blue were down 10-2. It looked hopeless. Then the game exploded. In the bottom of the 7th, the Cubs scored twice. In the bottom of the 8th, they scored 9 times! Nine fucking times in the mud and rain. It was a sight to behold.

I realize others turned the game off when it was 10-2. I stuck it out. My faith has been rewarded.

Croft & Barrow and StyleWorks

I made it to the village rummage sale today, and left with quite a haul. Two Croft & Barrow (aka Kohl's) pullovers, like new, for $2.50 each. Two StyleWorks (aka Carson's or Bergner's) blouses, like new, also $2.50 each. I think one of them might be a little too tight across the bust, but if it is, so what? It was $2.50. It'll make a nice addition to the next Goodwill bag.

$10. Four blouses that will make me feel pretty as winter turns to spring, and I only paid $10. Better yet, my purchases will assist local charities.

I am happy.
