Travel: We wanted to go out of state each month for a trip, and so far we are meeting that goal!
January - San Diego, CA for the American Farm Bureau Annual Convention
February - Outer Banks, NC because we had never been there and did not want crowds of summer
March - Nashville, TN to see sister Carol and Earl, Mia, Tom and Diane were there as well
April - Gifford Pinchot State Park, PA when we went camping with all the kids and Joe and Diane
May - Fenton, MO to visit Mom and Dad and family. We were there for their 65th wedding anniversary and Mother's Day this year.
June - Edgewater, NJ and Manhattan, NY to see Earl and Mia and my college roommate Gail
July - Gettysburg, PA for the Vintage Base Ball Festival with Joel, Katie, Becky, Joe and Diane
August - ??
Last week's baseball game was the Brandywine Base Ball club of West Chester, PA. These teams play by 1864 rules, including equipment, (no gloves, different bats, etc.), uniforms, game rules, umpires (called an arbiter), etc. Injuries to the hands are common!
