You know your week is bad when the big thing you're looking forward to on Friday is...doing the laundry. Our elevator was fixed sometime on Thursday afternoon, and I spent most of Friday catching up on laundry--seven loads of it.
Ralph Kiner died on Thursday. I'm too young to remember Ralph as a baseball player. I only saw him years later as a Mets announcer. I wasn't much of a fan. I remember my father laughing at one of Ralph's gaffes on Father's Day. "To all you fathers out there, happy birthday." I grew to appreciate Ralph more in recent years. He made appearances for an inning at a time on Mets broadcasts; his stories were great.
It's snowing again. Luckily it's a light snow. Last Wednesday, predictions were dire. A coating to two inches is not so bad. It's going to stay cold for a while. And forecasters are already speculating about the next storm Thursday and Friday. Swell. I can't worry about that one yet.
