Hammer Down To Macon Town

It's 7:25 EDT on Sunday, July 25, 2010.

As thejeepjunkie related here, The Kid's American Legion baseball team made it to the state finals this weekend down in Bradenton, a long 45 minutes south of Tampa on Eisenhower's Interstate 75. It was a double elimination tournament. The Kid's team lost the first one on Friday morning and had another scheduled for the same time on Saturday.

Well, their victory in that game set up another game today, Sunday, at high noon. Around a Japanese dental appointment, you know tooth hurty, this olelongrooffan called thejeepjunkie,

"Whatcha doing longroof?" was his greeting.

"Wondering if you are sitting by the pool or sitting by the wheel?"

"Sitting by the wheel," was his response.

"Tell The Kid I'm bummed for him, have fun in the Ozarks and drive safely."

"Will do. Thanks longroof. See ya"

and click. Yeah that's the way we are.

So unfortunately, unlike the Kid's sister,

he didn't walk away from the last game of the season with a trophy.

But to my family in the Ozarks, that just means you get to spend a little more time with the Kid
and that big white truck.

And the reference to the title of this blog?

They are just south of Macon, Georgia and look to be in the Ozark Mountains mid morning on Monday.

And this olelongrooffan knows ya'll will

Celebrate Life.
