Remembering Jack The Dog

It is with deepest sadness I announce the passing of Jack The Dog. My friend had to put him down on December 3, 2018.
He was a wonderful dog, so happy, so uplifting. He was a little over 15 and a half years old, when age crept up on him and seizures became more frequent. After the last seizure, my friend realized, it was time. She felt the need to just end his agony, it was for the best.
Jack was such a wonderful dog with a great attitude. A loyal companion, happy go lucky.
I remember many a time we would walk for hours, each time he was smiling away the time. It was so special. He was such a comfort to be around. It is amazing how much love can be shared between that Special Dog and the people in his life.
Rest in peace Jack. We loved you dearly and I know you loved “Mom” and I very much.

Pancreatitous affects many people in many ways. It is a horrible, deadly illness that affects every aspect of a persons life.
Celeste is one of those individuals with that deadly illness and is suffering horribly.
There is hope. With each dollar raised we reach our goal of combating this drastic sickness. Any contribution is greatly appreciated.

Authors I enjoy.

Here are some links to authors I enjoy.  Lovecraft and Poe are similar, while Brautigan is a totally different genre of writing. There were many times I would spend an hour or two reading their works or listening to them on audio books, via the internet.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The Fourth of July, 2018

The United States of America celebrated it’s birthday 242 this year. Many areas of the country celebrated with style in their own way. Amongst all the celebration were parades, Barbecues and of course fireworks.

This year was something a little different for me. While visiting a very good friend in Pennsylvania, I had mentioned that The Philadelphia Phillies were playing at home and she suggested I go since I had never seen that Major League team play before. Having been in Philadelphia before for the huge parade (the best I have ever seen in my life and still the best Fourth of July Celebration I have ever had), I jumped at the opportunity to enjoy this country’s national past time. After the game, my friend was up to heading over to an area by her to watch some fire works. We enjoyed them very much and she was very grateful we went to see that many fascinating colors and sounds of the fireworks.

The day started off at Citizens Bank Ball Park, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania and  the ballpark is outstanding in many ways. The architecture is stunning. With a modern style, the venue is attractive and maintains a sports venue feel, with out being dull at all. Upon entering the gates, there are many areas to eat before you enter the seating area. I just had to have a Philly Cheese Steak. I love them! I stopped at Tony Luke’s, placed my order and enjoyed the sandwich very much! The traditional Cheez Wiz topping enhanced the flavor (yes folks you read it correctly, Cheez Wiz).

Upon entering the seating area, I was awed at its beauty. Over looking the outfield, one could literally sit at a counter, which was right at the outfield wall, eat and enjoy all the action. Traversing through the rest of the stadium, I liked the way all the concession stands were set up and arranged throughout each section. It was set up very well, where the fans could shop for souvenirs, get a bite to eat or just hang around a talk baseball. There was even an elevator to make it easier for the fans to go up and down each section without having to walk all the stairs.

Something else made me realize how good the event was. The price. I almost could not believe it. The section I sat in was very reasonably priced. The tickets for that section were only $38 and a little more if you ordered online. No big deal to me, as tix for a major league sport in my area would have been a lot more. The parking fee was even less of a big deal at $18. The cost of the souvenirs were competitive to other sports teams I have seen in the major and independent leagues. If you shop around, you might even catch a sale at a game like I did. Another aspect of the game were the fans. Philadelphia should be proud of its people. I understand that there are good and bad folks in The City of Brotherly Love, yet there are good and bad people all over the planet. Philadelphians are of a good nature, friendly and take their sports seriously, yet not serious enough to get really tight nor obtrusive towards others, at least that is what I experienced. The Philadelphia fans of a competitive nature, yet one won’t want to talk ill of any team in that area without getting a little feedback.

I am happy that I went and had the second best Fourth of July in my life, for two reasons. The first was spending time with my best friend Celeste and the second was enjoy Phillies Baseball.20180704_14210120180704_18424520180704_17061120180704_15515220180704_14225520180704_18435320180704_14191520180704_18434220180704_14014820180704_14005120180704_13523420180704_13515720180704_13500820180704_134837
