Greetings from Jet Blue Park

We drove down from Boston to see a Red Sox spring training game. Talk about rolling out the red carpet for ordinary people! A shuttle took us a couple hundred feet from the parking lot to the entrance. Hundreds of seniors (meaning, old people like us) in blue shirts are greeting and welcoming people like they're old friends.

The skies are blue, it's 83 degrees but our seats are in the shade, a funky band is playing, and I bought a new straw hat with a big B on the band.

Damage done! ⚾️⚾️⚾️

Huh. Our dog's eye pressure is high.

She's only four years old. Her comprehensive exam was today. One eye is ok. The ok range is up to 25, and hers is 31 in the other eye. He's sending home a prescription.

The drug name he told me on the phone is one I take -- for glaucoma. It will be interesting to see how dosages and costs compare.

Well, she takes after her mom. 😕

Our terrier-mix Luna is watching the Westminster Dog Show, thinking

"I don't need no stinkin' pedigree! My mom and pop love me just the way I am."

Very true.

Just saw "They Shall Never Grow Old."

This is an amazing documentary using ONLY 100-year-old film footage from World War I including front-line footage narrated by servicemen who were actually there.

Sounds impossible, but director Peter Jackson explains how they restored the film, corrected speed and quality, and colorized all the war scenes and even synced the voiceovers with the silent film. The narrators recorded their stories in the 1970's.

One hundred years! The people look, talk, and act like they're in a war movie made today, but the death and horror shown are real.

1.5 million people in Boston for the Pats parade today.

A couple more than Dumbass's inauguration crowd. ** snicker **

We filed taxes exactly a week ago, and refund was in our bank this morning.

That's the fastest I can remember. They must be working 24/7 ahead of a threatened second shut-down.

Adam Levine is hot.
