Lambie

Skipper the cat sets this stuffed animal just outside our bedroom door each night. It’s a cute little routine that we enjoy each morning when we wake up.

‘People will come’

Vin does a great job with this speech but he can’t compete with James Earl Jones’ rendition.

A Dodgers hero, on and off the field

I like to think that my Dad would have been like Carl Erskine, sharing his basketball with a black kid when no one else would.

I always got the sense that Dad was non-judgmental of people who looked or acted different. If he had prejudices, he certainly never verbalized them. I never heard Dad speak poorly about anyone.

It’s clear that Carl Erskine was the same way. Erskine was an ace pitcher on those powerhouse Dodgers teams of the 1950s. He was an ace human being, too. The link below tells that story.

Volleybasketball

Maisa played her first-ever volleyball games on Saturday. She’s picking up the game better than I would have anticipated. She had some strong serves and some nice bumps/digs. Her team went 1-2 on the day.

Today it was basketball, and her team went 1-1. Maisa had her best game of the season in the victory, scoring seven points (including a free throw!) while adding some rebounds, defense and hustle.

Here’s her basketball team photo.
