Rosy OoO . . .

Off for a little 4-day weekend to Portland with my BFF so . . .

I’ll have to catch up on yesterday’s game with the Padres and the upcoming series vs. the Royals when I return on Monday.

Time to go play with my grade school friends…

the second annual gather of “the Dieringer Girls”!

last year it was the ocean..
this year the mountain…

Go, M’s beat those Rays!

Catching up on some recent additions…

Spent a few days in Lake Tahoe, visiting my daughter for Super Bowl weekend.
What an absolutely beautiful place…

Oh, and though I was not at all enamored by the SB match-up, I managed to stay interested due to my parlay bets…

Now, back to baseball…

Pitchers and Catchers report on Saturday!!!

Rosy OOO | Cruisin’ to Alaska

Rosy will be out of office for a week …

Taking an Alaskan cruise on the Golden Princess!
Departing from Pier 91 in Seattle today at 4pm and returning next Saturday morning.
The forecast doesn’t look too great … 
mid-50’s and rainy in most of the ports – but we will make the best of it and “Escape Completely” (as the Princess ads say 😉
The cruise is a “combo-celebration of our 27th wedding anniversary and our son’s 16th birthday.
Happy, Happy to us!!

Rosy OOO | in Portland for the weekend

Glad I at least got to watch most of the game on TV last night, since I likely will miss all of the rest of the games this series….

Tomorrow afternoon I’m headed to Portland for the weekend where I’m attending a friend’s 50th birthday celebration that includes a winery tour via limo. No doubt there will be lots of good food, drink and fun … (but no baseball ;-(

Hate to abandon the blog so soon after getting started, but it will be ‘dark’ for a week or so as I’m off to Dallas for a business trip.

Now that the Jr news has died down a bit, I hope to write about other interesting news from Spring Training (like how’s the rotation shaping up, who’s going to win the closer job, the infinite number of DH, LF, C and 1B platoon combinations, etc.) when I return.

See you in a week!
