It was 78 degrees on Sunday, so I had to break out the white legs and the shorts. We had a wildly eventful day of yard work and visit with the in-laws. Overall, it turned out to be a good weekend. We have one more weekend at home before the big journey to Sacramento for my nephews wedding.

After a horrendous road trip to Boston and NY, the Marines take 2 out of 3 from the Sox back at "The Safe". Being in third, and a position ahead of the A's, is great. However, we are a long ways from the top of the AL West. If we can sweep the Yanks, we should be back in the hunt. Yes, I am well aware it is not even Memorial Day yet. To me, every baseball game is important.

On a sad note, our dog’s mother was killed over the weekend. From the sounds of it, she was trapped under a horse trailer and that trailer drove off. Even though I only met the dog once, it did bring a tear to my eye. She was a sweet dog, and we are very happy that Basil was a product of her litter. We grow much attached to our pets, it is always sad to see someone lose one.

Work is going okay. Things have kind of calmed down in terms of the gossip and monetary talk that was being thrown around.

It looks like, in July, I will be inheriting my fathers 89 SHO. I am excited; this car has been great for my dad. Plus, it has A/C, which my current form is transportation is lacking. I will be losing some in the MPG department. However, I do plan on keeping the Escort for those days that do not require the A/C.
