Columbus, Ohio. Charlie finished for the day.
T-Ball Season has begun
Everybody gets a turn at bat. Everyone gets on base. Everyone on the team rotates to play all of the positions. I love T-ball.
Here’s Charlie hitting the ball. The lens focused on the fence in this shot. I liked how the ball was caught in the chain link frame.
The evening felt like summer, this last night of September. Steve and I had a great time thanks to my son sharing his season tickets with us. The city skyline so colorful and bright against the dark sky. It sure gets darker earlier and the game didn’t start until 8:15 so definitely Monday Night Football.
It was a good game for the Steelers as they were 0 and 3.
Tonight’s score Pittsburgh Steelers-27 Cincinnati Bengals-3
At halftime we saw the four inductees of the class of 2019 being inducted into the Pittsburgh Hall of Honor — Elbie Nickel (his son was there to represent his deceased father) , Larry Brown, Bill Cowher and Hines Ward. #86 got the loudest cheers.

Not to be mistaken for Berlin, Germany.

The morning drive out to Ohio was gray skies and rain so it was good to have sun and blue skies in the late afternoon.
My six word Saturday. Purdue University Choir Sang National Anthem
My grandson Michael and his teammates got the opportunity to play on the professional basketball court on Friday afternoon. We took a bus from Columbus Ohio to Indianapolis Indiana and the Indiana Pacers and Bankers Life Fieldhouse staff were most welcoming. Since I don’t have permission to post the Middle and High Schoolers photos online, I am showing the Purdue University Choir singing of the National Anthem before tip-off of the Pro game we watched Friday evening. The Pacers played the Pelicans. (click the bold for game recap) Marquette grad Wesley Matthews scored 15 of his 24 points in the third quarter. Very exciting to watch him tie it up and then go ahead after the Pacers lagged behind for the entire first half of the game. Pacers won 126-111.
We got back to Michael’s school about 12:50 AM and it’s almost 2 AM now so I will sign off.
I took these shots in April when I visited Berlin. Playgrounds have permanent ping pong tables installed. Just bring paddle and balls.
Krista Stevens at WordPress creates some interesting photo challenges. This week we’re to show where we live with the theme Tour Guide,
Here’s a Pittsburgh montage. Knowing when to stop digging in the archives is the problem but it’s one AM so we’ll start with this gallery tonight.
