So. Mr Pie has gone off to a conference in Arrowhead for a couple of days, to bond with the ten other members of management. He was in charge of stocking the bar, to the tune of $550. He told me a story about an older guy who has since retired, who was a heavy drinker. The guy was staggering back to his cabin at this same retreat, slipped on the ice, slalomed down the hill, and got stuck head-first under a pine tree, in the snow. Luckily his roommate saw it happened and dragged him out by the ankles.
Mr Pie says that anything foolish that is said or done at this conference will be talked about, which sounds like an excellent reason not to drink at this thing.
He took his camera.
Spring Training trip
Last weekend weekend we drove to Phoenix to see a couple of Spring Training games. We left on Thursday afternoon and made it all the way to….. Blythe.
At 8am it was hot. This hot.
By the time we got to Tempe, to the stadium, it was 98 fahrenheit, a clear, beautiful day, but too hot for us to sit in full sun for more than three innings.
