Today was a day of rest between ball games. I finally did yesterday’s post this morning and then got some catalog work done on the computer. I have been trying to get the posts done each evening but sometimes the internet connection is too slow, and this time I was just too tired.
This afternoon Jim’s good friend, Joe, stopped in for a visit. You may remember him as the Best Man at our “wedding” in February. Joe lives in Indiana but does some consulting work which often takes him to California. We had a nice visit and were able to reminisce about old times and catch up on life happenings throughout the years. [That’s Joe on the right and my sister, Linda, on the left.]
We had a nice dinner tonight at a restaurant called Marie Callender’s. When the name came up on the car GPS list of restaurants, we jumped at the chance to visit. (They have 114 locations, most in California, but all in the west.) We have been buying Marie Callender’s pies for special occasions and even tried her pot pies. All are delicious! We had a dinner special (2 for $30) with cheesy potato soup, pot roast for me and meatloaf for Jim, and her famous pie–rhubarb for me and key lime for Jim. The pie ended up being take out, along with a doggy bag. Yum, yum. If you haven’t yet tried her food, check out the pies in the frozen food section of your supermarket.
Byron 1347 BASEBALL CUP,
Bisque $5.00, Finished $7.50
This cup has an embossed baseball player with a baseball background. Concepts were used here for the detail and green background to make the white baseball show up.
This cup makes a great kids gift in the colors of their little league team or their favorite MLB team. Personalize by putting their name on the other side, or the name of their favorite player. You can even add a number on the front of the uniform. [There is also a football cup in the same style and price if your kid or grandkid isn’t into baseball!]
