Early this afternoon, I dispatched our heron-cam to pick her up. Here he is waiting outside our front door for my instructions.
He found the lovely lady at home, all decked out in a very becoming Pittsburgh Pirates cap -- which, since Pittsburgh is also in the National League, was quite appropriate attire.
While the Heron-cam was flying Ms. Asta Marie down to Florida Just Harry and I said a little pre-game prayer for our redbirds. They won the first game of the four-game series, but lost last night after a very long rain delay. It's a very important series if they are to be contenders for the October play offs.
And then, I donned what I hope will be a surprise -- a nice surprise -- for Asta Marie: my full Cardinal bobblehead regalia.
So stay tuned pals. I'll tell you more about the game and our date later, after we get to the ball park. But, like a gentleman should, I'll let Asta Marie decide how many "pawticulars" she wants to reveal.
Oh, and lest I forget, Just Harry is all excited because he and Princess Willow have connected; but he'll tell you more about that himself at another time.
A very trepidatious Jake
