With the hectic summer season winding down, I can actually come up for some air and spend some time relaxing. One way I do that is to grab my fishing pole and head to my favorite little place or should I say paradise. I could care less if I catch a fish. I just need the time to decompress from time to time and I haven’t had much of that lately.
It has all happened to us sometime in our lives. You are in line at the grocery store, when a new checkout opens up and the last guy (gal) in line scoots over to the newly opened register leaving those who were there ahead of him forced to now get behind him. I call these people "line jumpers." They are people who will not get an invitation from me to be anywhere near me in the future.
I had the chance to talk with former Cardinal's broadcaster, Jack Buck, former Cub's broadcaster, Harry Caray, and Brewer's broadcaster (and actor), Bob Uecker. I met all of them in a rather usual way.

Pat Perry had an eight-year career as a left-handed pitcher in the big leagues in the 1980s -- a career cut short by rotator cuff surgery. He is bringing the Pat Perry 2014 Summer Baseball Camp to the Quincy YMCA on June 9 and 10, and he'll be bringing with him a wealth of knowledge that even he didn't fully grasp and understand until after his playing days were over.
Last Sunday I was stung in the back of the neck by a wasp. It is a wasp that is no longer living thanks to my going into a retaliation mode. After smacking him with my hand and stomping on him for good measure, Mr. Wasp is no more. The story really began a day earlier.
