Tree Pruners

Warning:  This post might contain some Sports!

My neighbor Rod had his huge tree pruned today.  You remember him… he was the guy running his leaf-blower every day for two weeks.  They removed at least half of the limbs.

For a Phillies fanatic, a reason to read

New book tells why people are fans of Philadelphia’s baseball team.

By Lisa Dillman
February 5, 2009

Tis the season . . . for baseball books.
With spring training a few days away, there are the usual odes to that time of year, first-person accounts of time spent in the game and, naturally, the much-discussed Joe Torre tome.

Then there’s "101 Reasons to Love the Phillies." (I’m guessing 101 Reasons to Hate the Yankees would be an even bigger seller.)
In any event, author Ron Green Jr. provides an entertaining history lesson about the 2008 World Series champions. Reason No. 1: 10,000 Losses.
"It’s a perverse point of pride among Phillies fans — being the first and, so far, only major league team to lose 10,000 games — but it’s part of what made the franchise beloved by so many."

Add Phillies
And, speaking of perverse Phillies’ lore, Reason No. 40 truly fits that description: Alice Roth’s Tough Day.
She was the wife of the Philadelphia Bulletin sports editor and she was hit twice by foul balls (minutes apart by Richie Ashburn) at a game Aug. 17, 1957, suffering a broken nose and then getting hit in the face again as she was being carried out of the ballpark on a stretcher.
Can just envision that headline — Roth’s ERA: Emergency Room Appointment.

That poor, unlucky woman!!


Of course, I can’t go without leaving a Funny!

    Hey Bob…can you send your tree pruners up here? We have a grove of cedar trees in our front yard that need to be removed….they are over 100 years old…and are causing damage to our neighbor’s foundation. Not to mention that when we have a windstorm I cower in fear. Problem is we can’t afford to have them removed and neither can our neighbor. Perhaps your Manuel would give us a good price LOL.Love the funny…..#8 had me in tears from laughing so hard!! Thank you for the songs you sent…..I really appreciate that Bob.Do you remember an old Kris Kristofferson song….goes something like this "On a Sunday morning sidewalk, wishing Lord that I were dead, cause there’s something ’bout a Sunday………that would have been my theme song some 35 yrs ago….before I was saved. Still like the song today…hint hint.Take care, my friend.(((Hugs)))Karin
