Spectacular Saturday - Letting Life Resume


Waiting for election results this year is a lot like watching paint dry, or grass grow.

Success is measured vote by vote and I was encouraged that Joe Biden made it clear in his speech last night that each vote represents a voter, an American, who exercised their right to express their will during the election process. Every vote needs to be counted. 

The New York Times wrote the following about the process:

As Day 4 of the United States election turned into Day 5 on Saturday, the race for president appeared to slow to a crawl.

Today, however, I will tear myself away from CNN and Fox News to go to a baseball tournament and enjoy being outside, in the still warm sun, on what is promising to be a beautiful autumn day. 

Chris and I went to a game Thursday evening--and I rediscovered how cold 57 degrees can feel when you are sitting in a chair watching kids play baseball. 

The image I took of Jax getting out of the way of a baseball thrown at his head is at the left. If you can see the white streak just above him, but obscured a bit by the fence, that is the baseball. Look at the good job he did getting the bat down so the ball would not inadvertently hit the bat and become a foul ball. He walked twice during that game because he has a good eye at the plate. 

So with two games on tap today, it will be a welcome break from the tortuous wait to find out who will be taking the oath of office on January 20, 2021. 

It is time to let life resume and to realize that what will be, will be. I am glad that we have plans for today.
