Thankful Thursday


I’m kind of sad today – my Atlanta Braves took a September nosedive & their season ended last night. The hated and despised disliked St. Louis Cardinals surged from behind & now they’re going to be in the playoffs instead. It’s the kind of thing that will crush your soul, if you let it. Especially when you stay up until nearly midnight to watch the demise. Sigh.

BUT, today is Thankful Thursday so I will try to make lemonade out of these here lemons.

• I’m thankful that I have several teams to pull for during post season baseball. They might not be my team, but they’re worthy. Namely, the teams playing against the Yankees and the Cardinals.

• I’m extra thankful that I decided to work last Friday after all & I’m taking tomorrow off instead.

• Tomorrow is the Big Hair Day. The day I get my hair cut, not the day I wear big hair. Although who knows how my hairdresser will style it – it could be big hair. Boy, this is a very boring bullet point. STOP TALKING ABOUT YOUR HAIR!

• I’m thankful that I only had to manage my cane, all the multitudinous bags I carry and an umbrella one day this week.

OK, I’m still kind of sad about the Braves, but I like my lemonade a little on the tart side anyway. What are you thankful for today?

  7. Well, HELLO? The natural enemy of the St. Louis Cardinal is the Detroit Tiger. We're on a roll now, so if you like, I can send you a Big D t-shirt to put you in the mood and assuage your loss to those dastardly Cards.

  8. You should start with singing this song:

    We're all behind our baseball team; go get 'em Tigers.

  10. I'm thankful that the weather was just glorious today and I was able to share a meal with two good friends.

    I have rubbish hair so I keep it short. I once grew it and had it styled. My piano teacher saw it and said he thought I must be having chemo to wear a wig like that. So short, it stays.

  11. This is why I am so glad that I stopped being a sports fan. It is too emotional and heartbreaking. I haven't watched any baseball since 2005 when we lost to Houston. I do however have one team that I really dislike and that is the Red Sox. So I am thrilled that they are out this year. Why do people hate the Cardinals? Just curious....

  13. I, for one, don't hate the Cardinals as a franchise, and I think they have some of the best fans in baseball, as well as a rich history. I do hate their manager with a passion, and in as much as his attitude trickles down to some of their players, yes, there is dislike there, too. But, again, they have awesome fans and a great tradition.

  15. Thanks Dr. M. I know we have our "rivals". The Cubs and Red Sox. So I shouldnt be surprised that other fans don't like us. I am not a fan of Tony's either. Really liked Whitey though

  16. Some of my best friends are Cardinals fans, Brenda :-) Also, most of them don't particularly like Tony, or even loath him. He's that kind of personality. You have such a wonderful tradition, though! Stan the Man? What an awesome player he was, and what a beautiful human being he remains.
