Our trip to the Cats game

We went to the Cats game a few Fridays ago. We had seats on the third base side, front row. I drew a circle around Lynne and the boys in the picture above. The game was supposed to start about 7:30, but we had a one hour rain delay.
The grounds crew put the tarp on the field and staked it down so it wouldn't blow away.
We stayed in our seats for awhile, but when the lightning got more frequent we went up under the roof for protection.
Most people where up there too. The lightning show was as good as the fireworks after the game.
Once the storm passed they took the tarp off the field and we got ready to play ball!
Jae Jung was the pitcher on the night we were there. He pitched the entire game for the Cats.
We had a great view of the game, and of the sun shining on the downtown buildings. We only had to duck once for a foul ball.
They pulled kids out of the stands and dressed them up as dots for the dot race. Here is one of the kids crossing the finish line.
Dodger, the cats mascot, gave Lynne a high five after he came in last in the dot race. I didn't get a picture of that but here he is on top of the dugout leading the cheering. Miss Texas was there to sing "God Bless America" during the seventh inning stretch. Next time you see Andy ask him about their "relationship".
The Cats ended up winning the game 1-6. It was a lot of fun and the cool breeze off the thunderstorm felt great.
We stayed for the fireworks after the game and then headed home. Hope we go back soon!

My Castor Plant

I planted some Castor beans this year just to see what they would do.  The plants are almost 3 feet tall now.  You can see from the picture below with my hand in it how big the leaves are getting.
