BASEBALL.  The great American Pastime. Right?  It has been one of my passions ever since I can remember.  My first memories of watching the the game on television was in October of 1969.  I watched the New York Mets win the World Series by beating the Baltimore Orioles.  After that, I can remember watching the 1971 All Star Game in Detroit.  So many star players.  Several home runs, including Reggie Jackson launching one to the top of the roof in Tiger Stadium.  Still today, that is one of the longest and hardest hit balls I have ever seen.

Since then, I have followed not only my beloved Pittsburgh Pirates to not one, but TWO World Series wins of their own (1971 and 1979, both against the Baltimore Orioles) but also the Atlanta Braves (WS champs in 1995).  I even learned how to keep score in the games, thanks to my cousin Tim.  He showed me how back in 1976 as we were going to Pittsburgh to see my first live game!  I got into it and kept score for dozens of games for the next 5 years or so.

So here we are now, some 50+ years later and although my passion for the game hasn't deteriorated much, my actual watching of games has gone down significantly.  To almost ZERO over the last few yars.  I tried to watch a few last year, but somehow life interceded to curtail that activity. 

But this year, I have to try again.  Try real hard.  So hard, that my goal this year was to see at least ONE GAME of every Major League team!  All 30 of them!  And thanks to having several platforms online, I will attain that goal tomorrow, Saturday July 9th by viewing the Chicago Cubs playing in Yankee Stadium against New York.  This goal didn't take me as long as I thought it would.  So this will be another milestone for me.
Well, it seems to be that time once again.  Over the course of my 64 plus years of living on the planet, I must once again relocate and find a new place to live.  That is right folks.  I said I am about to move for the THIRTY SEVENTH time.  The owner of the house I currently rent a room in has decided to sell the house that has been in his family for a number of h=years.  He has just put a new roof on it and has decided he wants to move.  He said he will put the property up for sale once a few more updates have been made.  I do not harbor any ill will towards him as he has every right to do this.  So, with that said, I must now find a new location to move to.  I have lived here for about 2 years, which seems to be the morn for my life this past decade of so.  Except for a 3plus year at my late brother's house, I have been relocating around 2 years at the most.  Such is life.

If anyone in the Orlando area knows of oe has a room to rent, please contact me.  I don't know exactly the time frame for me to move, but I don't want to wait to the last moment to do this.  Sent me wither an email, text, of IM to discuss.  Thanks in advance for any help.
I miss dancing.  Except for a couple of brief moments last year, I haven't really be able to "cut loose" in decades.  In my younger day, say my 20's and 30's, I was always rocking out the great tunes of the day.  I must say that I was pretty decent at doing it as well.  I could draw a crowd for my style where ever I went.  Loved it.  Rarely got tired or worn out doing it either.  I could go for hours.  And I could almost always find a willing partner to join me.  Especially the prettier girls that seemed to enjoy being seen with me.  The music back in those days (and YES I will include D-I-S-C-O) were magical and provided the perfect backdrop to help us all "get down on it"!
