baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and chevrolet!

who among you is old enough to remember that chevrolet jingle?  aside from rain, it can pretty much describe my summer thus far.  early summer brought tee-ball….one of my favorites.  i love watching the wee ones out there on the diamond, some intent on the game…others playing in the dust or picking dandelions in the outfield.  this year my “bug” began her journey into baseball.  “bug” is my 5 year old great niece and for the past almost 4 years we have spent one day a week together.

DSCN5997she’s fierce!!  not afraid of anything and she’s going to be a tough competitor!

then there’s hot dogs….no one needs a picture of hot dogs, but my summer has already seen a few of them on the grill.  the 4th of july picnic was no exception.  my brother-in-law, tony, manned the grill and he always makes a few “special ones” just the way i like them…almost crispy!!

the apple pie hasn’t exactly happened yet…lots of raspberry swirl cheesecake, cheesecake stuffed strawberries and recently zucchini bread…but you never know, that apple pie may just make an appearance!!

as for the Chevrolet?  last night’s nascar race was under a rain delay for hours, and they finally started the race just about the time i was headed to bed.  i thought briefly about calling in sick today in order to say up and watch, but that’s never a good idea.   awoke to the news that dale jr. had won!!!!  we’re a chevy family (at least when it comes to American made) so his win was the icing to a great summer holiday weekend!

i hope your summer has been relaxing so far, and filled with all the good things from an advertising jingle!!

  1. Just to bad the win didn’t come without near tragedy, I could tell how upset he was in the interviews. Nice to have Amy by his side.
