To California and Back
It has been a while since I last posted and I apologize for that. I spent the last 11 days visiting family in Southern California. I hadn’t even planned on driving there but I had to sign in at the Elks Lodge in Oceanside where I transfered my membership. The Elks that I originally joined was in Benson, AZ but they were closing that lodge due to lack of new members.
I was also able to visit my mom several times and went out to lunch with my sisters on Valentines Day. I even got in a round of golf on the last day I was there. It will probably be a while before I get back there again so it was really a great visit.
By the way I drove my new (to me) Sammy (Suzuki Samurai) over there and back. It was almost 400 miles one way. Although I don’t intend to drive it that far again it handled beautiful.
Dish Network up and running
Yesterday my friend Phil came over to see where I had been. Hopefully I will be working for either he or Sindy at the ballpark when the Spring Training games start on Saturday. He helped me lift my Satellite dish on the roof where I was able to attach it to the bracket. I tried doing this myself, but it was just too awkward.
I hooked everything up and it found the satellite very quickly and I had TV.
Employee Orientation and then first ballgame
I have an employee orientation tomorrow where I find out all the details about my job such as where I will be working and what I will be doing. Then the first game is Saturday with the Angels playing the Cubs. I am really looking forward to it.
Dropped by the stadium where I will be working
I decided after lunch to drop by the Tempe Diablo Stadium and see if I could get some pics. I was hoping they would be practicing at the stadium but the players had closed practices in the other fields in the area of the stadium. I managed to get a few pics of the stadium as well as a couple players.
There were a lot of photographers taking many pics of Mike Trout.
While CJ Wilson was busy signing autographs.
This was a banner on the road to the stadium.
I was hoping to see some batting practice but will have to wait until a later time.
Looking forward to hearing all about the new job
My BIL is really jealous of you. He is such a baseball fan. Jim, not so much. Hope the weather improves for the game on Saturday.
Enjoyed your update. Looking forward to reading about your latest job. Sounds like a fun gig.
Enjoy your time there, Jim. Keep us posted on all the news!
Jimbo, I look forward to reading about your travels up into the north country this summer. I know you are looking forward to it.
