Family Matters

Yesterday, I stopped by a blog I visit from time to time. One of the author’s posts pushed a whole bunch of my emotional buttons: family, aging, mortality - just to name a few. You see Melissa over at All Buttoned Up was recently faced with a challenge. It was both an emotional challenge and a sewing challenge. She needed to make something for her grandparents to wear at meals. She came up with something which is more than a napkin, less than an apron and a more gracious plenty than a lobster bib. I think she did a pretty darn good job on both fronts.

:: Red Sox Notes:

1. We learned today that Daisuke Matsuzaka is a human being in good standing. It’s kind of a relief. And how cute is that kid when he grins!
2. The Red Sox face off against the Yankees tomorrow night at 7:05 p.m. Now we’re talking baseball!
3. Julian Tavarez is a pitcher who likes to coach the actions of his teammates on the field whenever a batter makes contact with a ball he’s thrown. As a result, Chuck has a new name for him: Julian “But I Always Wanted To Direct” Tavarez! I figure that once he retires from baseball, Julian could give “Tony The Dancing Cop” in Providence, Rhode Island a run for his money!
