Friday February 23, 2018

I watched the first of baseball for the year as spring training games began today. I saw some of the Houston Astros, Washington Nationals game. Kemmer got up once (and flied out to left). I tried to help Fran and Ron with their printer but I was of little or no help. Frank, Lue, and I ate at the Carriage Inn again.

1 year ago today: ​ We set a record for the highest ever recorded temperature on Feb. 24. In the afternoon the temperature reached 72°. I walked in shorts and a short sleeve shirt. No jacket was needed to go to another doubleheader at the college in the evening. Dave Kiehl's team got a nice win over Cranberry in the AA girls semifinals.
