Your a Daisy if You Do

Come on baby let's get out of this town,
I've got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down,
There's a chill in my bones,
I don't want to be left alone,
So baby you can sleep while I drive.

First Spring Training game ever. New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida. Pitchers this day were CC Sabathia vs. Dylan Bundy. Not a lot of names in this Saturday lineup. O's took the win this day. I guess, during the in-season, this stadium is home to the Single A Tampa Yankees.

OK, sorry I missed it by a few days. The home offices here at the Outskirts of Suburbia are undergoing some unexpected renovations. But hey, how about last year? And can you believe it's been 10 years? Holy smokes. This past year saw not one but three trips to Florida. You can expect more. Another adventure to Colorado. More flowers, more birds, new critters, new baseball stadiums and many more fire stations. But the one constant here is something new even if it's just another sunset or sunrise. We could always use more of those. And I did very well at the Shippensburg Fair, four blue ribbons and a red ribbon out of five entries.
The numbers... 180,280 page views in 10 years, 23,347 last year (within 100 of year 9), 3263 all time posts, 301 last year. And still my number one viewed post (drum roll please) World of Pigeons. It has been viewed 2267 times.
