World Series

Tonight I am watching My Texas Rangers play game 4 of the World Series on the television.  Last night I was at the Ballpark in Arlington, watching game 3 live and in person.  During commercials tonight I am going to cobble together this post about last nights game.

WooHoo  I like the word Champions!

We bought our tickets before the SF Giants won the National League Champsionship so our tickets say "TBD" To Be Determined at Rangers. 

My hubby - the view from our seats.  We sat on the club level.  They gave us lanyards to put our tickets in as a souvenir.
A fly over during the National Anthem, it is great to be an American.
In closing let me just say.....Texas Rangers are number 1. 
Until next time,

Baseball,Bird of Paradise and Carrion

First I have to say Yipppppeeeee   WooooooHooooooo  my Texas Rangers won the American League Championship and for the first time in their history they are playing in the World Series.  
I took this picture off the Texas Ranger website and I would give credit to the creator if I knew who it was. 
 We have our World Series tickets.  We will be going to game 3 next Saturday October 30.  Look for me on TV.  I will be the one dressed in  
It's that time of year.  The Bird of Paradise is blooming again.  Later this week I will be taking it into the greenhouse.

This year my African carrion (Stapelia Grandiflora) has 8 blooms at one time!!!  This is another first. 

I will be blogging about the World Series after Halloween.   Hope you have a wonderful week. 
Until next time,

"MY" Texas Rangers

Last Sunday, 10-10-10, we were fortunate enough to be able to attend a Texas Rangers ALDS game in Arlington againest the Tampa Bay Rays.  And even though they lost that game they were able to win the American League Division Series in St. Pete. 

Tonight is the first game of the American League playoffs, Yankees vs Rangers in Arlington.  We aren't attending but we will be driving to Dallas tomorrow to go to the Texas State Fair (about a 4 hour drive).     Anyway, I thought I would share a few pictures I took at Sundays game.
So when you see all those people waving their towels....the ball club has given you the towel and they tell you when to wave it!!   It is soooooo much fun.

A quick update

Hello friends,  I have been remodeling my bathroom so I haven't had much blogging time lately.  When I am finished with the remodel I will share some pictures.

It is getting cool here.  I have added another blanket to the bed and my winter robe is now out of the closet.  For today I will share a few more pictures from the yard while I still have blooms. 
This frog is about 1 inch long.  My daughter was able to take a focused picture of it. 
The spiky plant on the right is a Bronze Leaved Crinum.  The teeny tiny frog was hiding down inside this plant. 
My papaya plant has a fruit!!  I hope the fruit will continue to enlarge once I take it into the greenhouse for the winter.   
The mandevilla likes the cooler weather.  The swimming pool does not.  The leaves are starting to fall so we will have to cover the pool sad :-(

I hope you have a great week.  Until next time,
