Major League Ballgame!!

May 4th, 2012 at 03:32 pm

DH attended his first ever major league ball game yesterday. I was so excited for him.
He built a house about 10 years ago for a couple that retired to this area from Atlanta. He was the head of trade and tourism for the state of Georgia.
As we do for most couples we build for, we remained good friends with them.
Last summer, my dh turned their ourdoor back deck into a large (500 sq.ft.) family room. They were so thrilled with how the room turned out, they wanted to take him to an Atlanta Braves game!
I was invited to, but I am terrified of traffic; I won't even travel on the interstate at all.

So, the guys took the day off and went to the daytime game yesterday. My husband loved it, even tho he mentioned that you have to drive 75 miles per hour, or get run over. The other guy did the driving. He has lived in Atlanta all his life, so he was use to it.

Dh could not get over all the huge buildings in Atlanta. We have lived all our lives in small towns.
He is ready to go back. He will invite the friend to go to a daytime game next year, if the friend will drive. Even dh didn't like the traffic!

Sadly, the braves did not win. They did, however, come from behind the night before (May2nd) to win. I got a dollar bill in the mail yesterday, so $2 will be added to the challenge..

Prev. total $4916.00
today 2.00
new total $4918.00

    What a wonderful treat for DH. Good thing we can all choose where to live. My family members who live in 'the valley,' CA, commute 1.5 hrs each way on the busy LA freeways.

    In China they've replaced the centuries old system of one level [hutong community centered] housing for seniors and moved them to apartments in 50 story buildings. There is no choice! With an aging population it is more cost efficient to look after the needs of seniors in small apartments in huge bldgs.

    Nice! I did something similar for my parents when they visited me in Boston a few years ago, and sent them to a game at Fenway Park. Neither of them are baseball fans, actually, but it is such a lovely venue and it leads to such a great feel of the city that they had a wonderful time anyway. MLB really is such a nice slice of Americana, and offers some insurance for a nice afternoon/evening diversion, almost no matter what the outcome of the game.
