What a sad week it has been. Carrie Fisher. George Michael and Debbie Reynolds.
Please pray for their families.
Thank you to my Dodger reps for the Christmas gift. These tumblers are something I can actually use!!
Christmas is just around the corner believe it or not. Was it just Thanksgiiving?
Glad to say that both Justin Turner and Kenley Jansen have signed. I give Kenley a lot of credit considering he did not take the most money. He went to the team where his heart is. I will always love him for that. It probably swung in the Dodgers favor when Justin and Scott Van Slyke attended Kenley’s wedding in Curaçao during the Winter Meetings.
A sad note was the death of Alan Thicke one week ago. Why does it seem that such tragic things happen around the holidays? He died of a rupture of the aorta which is sure death. He was doing what he loves most..playing ice hockey with his youngest son. I remember seeing him at the celebrity softball game this year. He is pictured to the left of Jamie Foxx.
Also prayers for Carrie Fisher who suffered a massive heart attack today while flying from London to Los Angeles. So so sad!!!
Merry Christmas to everyone. Spring Training is just around the corner. Hope everyone has a great and joyous Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
I finally got my Adrian Gonzalez autographed jersey in the mail. It’s gorgeous! Remember I was the high bidder at the silent auction for the charity Padres Contra El Cáncer? I was actually the only bidder.
I still have my fingers crossed about Rich Hill, Justin Turner and especially Kenley Jansen. Kenley may be too expensive. He may end up with the Marlins and Donny.
Thanks for stopping by! It’s already December. Spring Training is around the corner!!
This past weekend was one full of Dodger activities. Saturday was the Adrian Gonzalez charity softball event. Sunday was the yearly season ticket holders event. I was excited. I was missing the Dodgers by this time. It didn’t faze me that I had to work 12 hours all night Saturday night after the softball game. I wasn’t going to miss anything.
Saturday turned out to be the perfect day. It was mild and sunny.
There was a pretty good turnout considering it was the beginning of Thanksgiving week when people are busy with the holidays.
The grass looked a little sad compared to the way it usually looks but then again, it is off season. I hate writing those words.
We were given goodie bags with snacks and a Dodger license plate. The snacks were pretty good.
First order of business was to stand in another line to get an autograph from Adrian Gonzalez. It was $35 to get one autograph. I just wanted a chance to say hi to him. There was plenty of security. The money went to his charity. Adrian is a difficult autograph to get anyway so why not.
Here he is signing my ball. I actually have his autograph but I wanted to give to his charity. I was surprised when he looked up and recognized me. He gave me a big smile and asked me if I was having fun. Those Dodgers notice more than you think they do.
He did a beautiful job signing my ball right on the sweet spot although I never ask players to do that. After all…I’m never going to sell anything. He always writes a reference to a scripture. In case anyone is interested, this is the passage in Psalms: “The LORD is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid.” So Adrian…!
With the ticket I purchased, I received a free personally autographed picture of Adrian. Very nice action shot. Almost as good as my pictures…JK!
Sunday turned out to be a cloudy, rainy day. The clouds already looked ominous when I got to the stadium. The weather forecast was foreboding. Rainy, cloudy, inclement. Not that many showed up probably because Californians don’t like bad weather.
My poor seat was a mess. It was dirty and looked more torn up than usual. I wish the management would spend some money and fix it. I went alone to the event. I was actually supposed to go with Norma but she had a family emergency and couldn’t go. It was just as well. It really wasn’t fun.
I was glad I went but it was a little disappointing.
Thanks for stopping by. Congratulations to Vin Scully on his Medal of Freedom. He definitely was the voice of the Dodgers. I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving.
Congratulations to our Corey Seager who received National League Rookie of the Year.
I can’t say it was a big surprise since it was expected. There won’t be a recount. There will be no protest on the street.
Besides being chosen Rookie of the Year, he also happens to be a polite, sincere young man. Here he is with his #1 fan Ashlyn. It was a dream come true for her this past season to meet him.
I am so proud he is a Dodger. He makes my heart SMILE.
Thanks for stopping by!!
