World politics at the lunch table

Today Maisa asked me why so many of our things are made in China.

Finally, a practical use for that political science degree I earned at the U of Iowa!

2015 Dubuque County Baseball Hall of Fame class

Congrats to these guys. I saw these gentlemen play a lot when I was growing up. Very good players.

–Joe Callahan, Cascade: Heck of a pitcher for those outstanding Dubuque Budweisers teams. Great slider.

–Frank Dardis, Peosta: An all-time baseball legend in Dubuque County, ranking right up there with the likes of Paul Scherrman, Hank Lucas and Pat Weber.

–Randy Dunkel, Worthington: Speedster on the basepaths. Line-drive hitter and very good with the glove.

Handle me with care

Been listening to a lot of Traveling Wilburys songs lately.

At the movie theater

Disney’s “Inside Out”…

  

UPDATE: “Inside Out” became one of my favorite movies today. Clever and witty and hilarious. Maisa and I laughed a LOT.

Full house

We are enjoying lots of quality family time this week, with Maisa’s grandparents and cousin staying here.

There’s nothing better than a full house and the laughter and good times that it brings. It reminds me of my early childhood, as well as high school days hanging around the Wickham and Baumhover homes.

As it should be

Glad to see the Dodgers and Cubs split their four-game series this week. Two good teams, four good games.

Now it’s on to Miami and then Phoenix on what is a grueling road trip travel-wise.

The Cubs, meanwhile, play St. Louis. Beat those cheating Redbirds!
