Baseball Memories of Gail and her family:
Ginger – I tried calling Mom one evening in July, but there was no answer. When I checked Facebook, I saw my sister’s status: July 8, 2012 – Karen was at McDonald Stadium in El Dorado.
Ginger: Hmmm, that must be why Mom doesn’t answer her phone.Karen: We lost, badly. It doesn’t help that Mom is always cheering for the visiting team.Ginger: doesn’t she like the home team?Karen: She likes to be contrary.Ginger: I’m afraid we’ve inherited some of that too. Just wait until I’m 87.
Cj Garriott – As I recall, July 2012 was the host of those 100+ days that I arrived in time for a full week of? I remember thinking, how in Hades could it be HOTTER 700 miles north of where I was coming from.
Karen – That was one hot summer, too, but Mom loved going to the El Dorado Bronco games in the stadium there at the fairgrounds. She flirted with all the good-looking college players when they came through collecting for the 50-50 drawing.
Mom and I were going to a lot of ball games that summer. The notes below were from the previous evening at the ball park.
