No Runs, Mis-hits, Cold Air...

I've decided that I am a pimple of the butt of humanity. I'm cold, tired, and sick of rain. It has rained every day for the last two weeks. I'm sick of it. I had to broadcast a ball game today on the TV station. We couldn't sit in the press box and they stuck us in left field... literally. One of the players hit a line drive right at us. I was cool as a cucumber on the air, but I just about dropped a deuce in my drawers. Then another pop foul ball came down just to the left of me... I had to laugh... plus, the temperature (which this time of year is around the mid 70's) dropped like a rock into the 40's... I didn't bring a jacket cause I thought we'd be in the press box where it was warm... oops! The wind was blowing at about 40 mph... making things down right freezing... I was so cold that I struggled to keep my teeth from chattering on the air. The game was exciting. But I was so cold that I didn't really care. Stopped and got a bite to eat and came home to nod off... Doug update: not too good I'm afraid. His lungs are a little better and clearer, but he is now bleeding internally. I'm afraid it's looking a bit grim for my friend... I'm trying not to think about the whole thing... it makes me sad. It's in God's hands now... his will be done.

Doug and Carolyn are still in my prayers. God will take care of both of them.
As for your weather, tell ya what. I'd love to trade some of the hot sunshine we have down here for a little of the cool rain yall got up there. How 'bout it? Lol!
