I took the kids to their (and my) first baseball game at Comerica Park today.
I’m not big into baseball, but the kids are. They know all the players on the Tiger’s roster and even have nicknames for some of them, (Sir Spits-a-lot I guess is a pitcher, but didn’t play this game, Bobble-Head, and, um, Mr. Idiot).
I just picked up Ann from her first overnight school trip.
Ann's quote of the night: "I can sew and tie off a button. That's a useful skill when I get married. Especially if he's big. 'Pop! Honey! I lost another button!' '*sigh* Oh, dear.'"
I wonder if she’s planning to marry the Incredible Hulk…?
For several months I've been setting of store security systems maybe half the time when passing through. The kids found this rather funny and started taking bets if the alarm would go off. (There was much cheering either way, which I'm sure looked pretty odd.) Recently, I took the plastic card holder out of my wallet for some reason and found one of those RFID tags wedged way in the back of its slot. So, if you buy someone a wallet for Christmas, be sure to tell them to take out the tag. Or, depending on your demeanor, make sure it's really stuffed in there...
My name is Karyl F. Stein and this is my website--a place to collect artifacts related to my interests. Family and friends may enjoy the journal entries. Perhaps some will wonder how I prepared a certain meal and look up the recipe here. Searches for technical setup or configuration help may lead to one of my articles. Others may wonder how they got to this site and quickly run away!
