Project 15 - Day 4
We had a rather uneventful visit with the girls this year. I had high hopes that they would provide several days worth of blog fodder during their stay, but it was not the case. I also have to say that the weather was extremely uncooperative. These photos were taken on one of the rare days that the sun shone and provided enough warmth to offset the cold north wind.
What the girls love most about their annual visit to Florida is to sit on the lanai reading and/or working on their cross word puzzles. They are a fairly low maintenance duo. However, the unusually cold, wet winter weather squelched those plans and most days kept everyone on the inside looking out.
One afternoon, to break up the monotony, The Kid produced his softball glove for the girls to inspect. Although the glove is nearly as big as she is, Bubba acted like a seasoned pro and encouraged D to toss the ball her direction.
That's right Bubba, concentrate.
Don't take your eyes off of the ball. It's one of the first rules of the game.
And then there was Flos. In the name of fair play it must be noted that Flos had no sons. No boys to track in mud, collect bugs, or play baseball. When handed the rather large fielder's mitt, she seemed to be at a loss.
It required further inspection.
It's a glove.
We'll stock up on puzzle books and reserve your seats on the lanai. And if you're good, The Kid will break out one of those new bats and play a little Pepper with you.
