My Niece Breaks Her Grandfather's Whoopee Cushion

Heartwarming Apology Exonerates Culprit - GRANDPA'S 60TH BIRTHDAY PARTY: Despite inflating and deflating her grandfather's whoopee cushion until it burst , Lori was completely forgiven upon receipt of the apology that accompanied the broken device. But how could a four year old unable to read or write possibly pen an apology? Enter Lori's older sister, Suzi. At 6 years old, Suzi's grasp of the English language was the missing link. Courtesy of stolen sips of Grandpa's soda, the girls worked well beyond their bed time. As Lori dictated, Suzi wrote. Both knew, however, if this apology were to be convincing, Lori would have to be the one holding the crayon. So, Suzi wrote ever so lightly knowing full well Lori would have to trace over the draft. The plan worked beautifully. The apology was so well crafted, it was almost as if my father had completely forgotten he owned a whoopee cushion in the first place! Apologies might not always work, but it certainly did this time. Well done, nieces!

Yin & Yang - Aside from playing with whoopee cushions I also played 18 holes of golf on a championship course. The photo to the left was the highlight of my round when I hit a rescue club on a par 3 to within one club length of the hole (nearly missing a hole-in-one). The other photo, was the lowlight. I hit two drives on #18 out of bounds to completely ruin an otherwise solid round. Should have stopped at 17.

Rain Reigns Supreme - Has it ever rained this much in a given baseball season? I finally scored some free tickets to a Mets game. The one drawback is that on a free ticket there is this "no rain checks" clause that mean you don't get to go if it's postponed and rescheduled. So, my buddies and I went ALL the way to citiField just to be disappointed. We did grab burgers at Donovan's Pub (one of the best burger places in the city) on the way home so it wasn't a total waste. Also, I'm still accepting free Mets tickets until the end of the season...which is sadly arriving way faster than I had hoped in the spring.
