    Have fun! I went to the Phillies/Padres game last week. They (Phillies) pretty much killed us (Padres) -- but as much as I wanted to hate them, I had to respect their good playing! And as a bonus, I was at the game with Europeans who were at their very first baseball game. For one of the guys, it was a dream of his to see a ballgame ever since he saw Field of Dreams on DVD a couple years ago. Our seats were ground level, right next to the Phillies' bullpen. The pitchers and pitching coaching staff were so nice to us -- they chatted and posed for pictures. So whatever team you're rooting for -- have a great time!

    Thanks, everyone. Actually, I'm not a big baseball fan. But I do like to go to the games and get caught up in the excitement. And even better yet, my family all root for the Phillies, but my sister and her family are HUGE Red Sox fans. And, her family will be here next week for my son's graduation. So if the Phillies win, my son will just LOVE having my sister here to rub it in. Things won't go so well if the Phillies lose - but, well, we won't even think about that!

    Ellen that is SO cool. I love to hear stories like that. I'm glad they all had a great time.

    The last baseball game I went to was a Twins game in the cities for my and my friend's birthdays a couple of years ago. We went for one reason and one reason alone. To see Joe Mauer Best baseball game ever... aka- I came home with a camera of butt shots

    My hubby makes the best bed north of the Mississippi! And nothing can compare to the feeling of sliding into the cool, crisp sheets on a balmy evening. Smelling the fresh pillow as it cools my cheek. I always get a fantastic night's sleep on wash day! Not having to make the bed makes me very appreciative!

    That's called "foreplay"......even though they may not know it!
