We had a wonderful time at the Salem Red Sox game yesterday- dogs and baseball, what could be better? Thrown in some adoptions, that's what! Our senior girls Chi Chi and China were 2 who found new homes, and a good time was had by all. Many thanks to Salem Red Socks and our volunteers who made sure the afternoon was perfect!
Baseball, to me, is still the national pastime because it is a summer game. I feel that almost all Americans are summer people, that summer is what they think of when they think of their childhood. I think it stirs up an incredible emotion within people.
