It was a BEE-YOU-ti-ful softball field...just as green as green could be, like an oasis in the desert. After watching the guys hustle and run around in the hot sun, I heard somebody say, "Roadrunner ALERT!" BEEP, BEEP! Of course, the birds don't say that, but I almost did! I turned around and there was a very pretty roadrunner. When he saw me about to take his picture, he turned his butt to me and started waving those L-O-O-N-G tail feathers back and forth, back and forth--swish, swish, swish!" as if to say, "WELL! Think you're going to take my picture, hunh? I'll give you my best side, my butt!" I finally got him when he turned sideways. He preened himself a bit...Then soon, he walked off at a brisk pace, er, race walked or whatever it is that they do on the ground....he didn't fly....of course he ran very fast! Beep! Beep!
"I really must do something about these nails!"
We really enjoyed the game today...great facility...great hamburger stand--they cooked fresh hamburgers on the grill for the game watchers today...very reasonable prices...Eldy talked to a guy in his seventies today who plays all over the country all year round...incredible! He says the field at this park pales in comparison to some of the softball diamonds in other resort parks around the country....whoo-eeee...glad the economy is healthy in some places, at any rate! We'll see you tomorrow..my turn for Zumba classes again....I'm working out the kinks after the last class I took a couple of days ago!
See you later!
