I thought weekends were time for rest.
Not here, lately.
Here's Grandpa Keith at the Wyco Sluggers game last night.
Let me tell you, it was cold out there! The very lowest 50's, and
he reminded me ten times his new Carhartt jacket was keeping
him mighty warm.
I'm wearing my old pink Carhartt next weekend, for the last game.
Jax is always intense on the field. It helps if you hold your tongue in your cheek, and he runs the bases like this, too.
He is playing first base lately.
I would have to say all the boys love the game.
They are so much fun to watch.
(you know I have to shoot through the fence, for the most part)
My daughter in law, Amy, is a very supportive sports mom.
I love this picture of her, she did not know I was taking it.
She is not the yelling bad things kind of mom to the kids, but the encouraging yeller.
Of course, our beautiful Paiton, along with her "gang" (all the other brothers and sisters of players) was running around having a good time.
This morning, the Polack Brothers Circus is setting up at the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame.
They will be doing a show at 5 PM and 7 PM today, and again, tomorrow.
I took pictures of the tent going up after I ran to the post for a medical procedure.
I belonged to Circus Fans Association for years, NEVER have I seen women help put a tent up, and let me tell you, these young men and women had it down to a science!
Within 30 minutes, the tent was going up!
Those are the big baling rings for the four center poles laying on the ground there, and there are three young women in this picture.
Within an hour... it was up.
And the human cannonball's canon was moved in.
The sidewalls began to go up at that point, and props were being unloaded from a truck.
Oh, seats had also been moved into place on their trailer.
This canvas looks almost brand-new, but the show is on it's way in to winter
quarters in Hugo, Oklahoma.
Maybe an hour to get the tent up, but still have props to set, etc.
It's a one-ring show, but I like small shows.
I'm going to the 5 PM performance.
I had to wander out into the pasture to get decent pictures, and I found a patch of flowers still being worked by bumblebees! It was a chilly morning and the bumbles were all quiet, and easy to watch.
Pictures of the show tomorrow!
