Summer Fun

tons o fun, originally uploaded by Chambo25.

So, it's a BEAUTIFUL day in Connecticut today, and I just walked outside to drop something in the mailbox and was absolutely blown away. It's been unseasonably cool in the last few days, and today is no exception. The sun is shining, and all is right with the world.

This weekend I did a fair amount of random picture taking, and this collection of wiffle balls and bats is a result of that larger project. Spotting this box of wiffle sets outside a sporting goods store I couldn't help but think about the many days of spring, summer and fall when Matt and I would wander down to the Roland Community Center (the "Rec" which I always spelled "wreck" in my head) and play wiffle ball on the field that now houses a playground. Before we moved up to the rec field we used to play in the Lafferty's backyard, with the back 8 feet of yard or so being, "homerun terrritory."

There was the time that Matt needed stitches after sliding into a rock at 3rd base. There were many many homeruns on the rec field. There was the constant bickering with the Halft family over balls hit into their yard. Ah... wiffle ball.

Perhaps we'll play some at the beach next week!
