We need to get today’s posting started because your favorite Sunshine State blogger has a rather long list of errands and chores to attack so ... let’s begin with the highlight of yesterday ... which was ... drum roll ...
Having an AWESOME dinner last night with my son Bill III aka The Bill at one of our favorite restaurants, the Outback Steakhouse on Aloma Avenue in Winter Park.
We both had the Outback special sirloin steak and it was terrific, along with sides. I had a baked potato and mac & cheese while Bill had a baked potato and french fries.
We stuffed ourselves while doing some much needed catching up, including details on his upcoming move. More info on this will be in a later posting.
Then, on the way back to my apartment we stopped off at a Krispy Kreme where we each picked up a 1/2 dozen chocolate glazed donuts.
Folks, your favorite blogger MUST caution you that this is the very personification of E V I L ... because ... once you put one of these in your microwave oven and zap it for 12 seconds and then taste it ... you will become, forever, an addict ... trust me on this you will.
I guess the saving grace is ... there’s a lot of worse stuff to become addicted to.
Anyway ... moving on ...
Sunday was also an excellent walking day for Billi Pod. Yeah, with his early morning walk and wander session, his walking regimen during the baseball games he watched and a brief walk and wander session in the late evening he recorded==>6.01 miles. Not bad!
This mileage brought the weekly mileage up to==>35.78 miles, for a daily average of 5.11 miles per day. Not bad!!
Now on to the baseball scene ... for you Marty ...
Yesterday the Yankees won the rubber game against the Twins, 7-2, behind a stellar outing from Nathan Eovaldi and the long ball from Chase Headley and Stephen Drew.
With the win the Yankees are 11-3 in our last 14 games and increased our lead in the AL East to 6.5 games over the second place Blue Jays.
Tonight at 8:05pm the Bronx Bombers begin a 4-game series against the Texas Rangers, in Arlington, TX.
On the mound for the Yankees (55-42) will be Ivan Nova (2-3) vs. Matt Harrison (1-1) for the Rangers (47-50).
Incidentally, the Rangers are only 16-26 at home, the worst percentage in MLB.
Billi Pod plans to remain in the cool and comfortable confines of his new apartment to watch the game on his 42” flat screen TV, in hi-def.
So ... it is time to post this and then begin the errands and chores list.
Total mileage for the week==>35.78 miles (average 5.11 miles per day)
Total mileage for 2015==>855.62 miles (average 4.13 miles per day)
