No, I am not doing an entry on the subject of the above song!
However, I did want to mention that Phil Rizzuto, Yankee Champion, and Baseball Hall of Famer as a player and radio/tv announcer, died yesterday at 89.
The famed shortstop in 1955.
Phil's #10 has long been retired, but up until the past year, as illness and old age took their toll, he was a frequent visitor at the Yankees clubhouse.
Even if you are not a fan of baseball, you may know Phil from his contribution to the Meatloaf mega-hit, 'Paradise by the Dasboard Light'. Phil's famous catch phrase, forever immortalized in rock, 'Holy Cow, I think he's gonna make it!'.
Today the 'boys' of the house were at the 'House that Ruth Built', for the last game in a series against the Baltimore Orioles. It was a beautiful day, 81 degrees and sunny, with clear blue skies.
I would like to say the Yankees won, but I can't.
Hammer, Fuzzy, Dill, and Hubby were winners though. Today was hat day (freebies), and they had a great time! They got to see the video memorial of Phil Rizzuto, saw the #10 painted in front of each dugout, and saw the Yankees playing with #10 patches on their uniform sleeves.
It was a special day. This Yankee blue font color is to honor that day, as well.
Pumpkin and I played cards for most of the day. We played gin rummy, crazy eights, trash and 21. We also went shopping with Grandpa (my dad) for backpacks. Pumpkin got a magenta Jansport, and Fuzzy a cool camouflage one. My kids really need good backpacks. If we get the less expensive kind from the drugstore or toy store, I end up buying another one right after Christmas. Ugh.
They are heading to their scoutmaster's house right now, to go over their latest badge work. So, it is just Pumpkin and I again!
Pumpkin is all showered and in her jammies, enjoying having the Wii to herself. I am also in my jammies, enjoying the quiet! LOL
I am doing better with the plaquenil. I have noticed that yesterday and today, my stomach seems less bothered by it. I am trying to be smart enough to eat when I take it, too. It helps. I am still swollen and sore though. My toes, hands, wrists and elbows are throbbing. I will survive!!! :-)
