Today seems to be a day for tying up loose ends. I've finished the ironing that I didn't get to over the weekend, made an appointment with the bank, and made the bed. So, while I'm at it, I might as well update the ol' blog seeing as how I haven't posted anything here for almost a month. It's not like I haven't thought about it, because I have. But, I just never got around to putting fingers to keyboard until now.
So, what have you missed? Not much, really. The Phillies are still on track to make the playoffs, though I wonder how far the pitching staff will be able to take them with these injuries popping up all over the place. I also have concerns about the hitting. The Phils tend to run hot and cold, and if they're cold when the playoffs roll around, forget it, especially if the pitchers aren't healthy.
Pennsylvania still doesn't have a budget, but at least there's an agreement in place now. So, there could be an actual budget by late this week or early next week. That will put the budget somewhere in the neighborhood of 90 days late. Can you imagine a scenario in which YOU were 90 days late with something? How well do you think that would go over? I'm just sayin'.
I went to my high school reunion over the weekend. After 25 years, the Class of '84 still looks good.
I spent the rest of the weekend at Penn State catching up with a good friend and molding young minds. I also briefly met the husband of an acquaintance from college and had a quick chat with a former news director who once considered me for a job. It's a small world and a smaller business.
