And I...won't back down... As I left the shop this afternoon, I tuned into the first spring training game of 2008: Your Cleveland Indians versus the dreaded Houston Astros. By the time I tuned the game in, it was the top of the 8th inning and the Tribe was ahead 8-1. Not only that, but there were only a few names, if any I recognized. The good news is that the Indians won 12-2. Wahoo! I know, it doesn't count, but it is baseball.
Meanwhile, back at the WIXYranch: We have just now finished digging out from the last blast now the forecast calls for an Alberta Clipper to come our way. I think I will buy that groundhog a blindfold next year. But warmer weather and rain is on it's way. I hope we don't have any flooding problems.
The MrsWIXYmobile was involved in an accident last week. Mrs74WIXYgrad was at fault and sustained a concussion in the wreck. She was treated and released. The car however is considered a total loss so we need to look for a new car for my wife. The man who hit my wife called our house tonight and wanted to know how she was doing, and to tell her that he held no bad feelings towards her and that "Jesus was his friend." You don't hear that from someone who was involved in an accident which wasn't their fault all that often. There still are good people around.
My reposts are getting a favorable response. I won't do this too often, but I do have a few more in mind. The post below this one was the first of a three parter. Part two is posted over at Seek Him First. Part three will also be posted over there.
