Keith got the riddle right on Friday.
What aways smells but has no odor?

Your nose


My maker never wants me
My buyer never uses me
My user never sees me
What as I?

I will be coming home from the beach in a little while. I really was a nice weekend here. I would stay longer but we have ball games to see and they need their one of their cheerleaders.


I miss my animated name. I will try and figure out why it's not working anymore. I has to be something with the blog because I have three computers and it doesn't work on any of them.

See you at the ballpark.


The Virginia Cavalier baseball team completed the sweep of Maryland yesterday knocking off the Terrapins 4-0, the Cavs remain ahead of UNC in standings who also won yesterday. UVA will play VCU next and then have a home series with NC State next weekend. The New York Rangers defeated the Buffalo Sabres yesterday 2-1 in 2OT, it was a must win game for the Rangers they pulled threw, they will play game 4 of the series on Tuesday night. Jeff Gordon won again yesterday at Talladega, it seems like he is winning all the races this year. With the win he moves ahead of Dale Earnhardt on the all time win list at 77. Andrews LL team will be back in action tonight at 7:30pm against the Red Sox, the Nationals are coming of a victory on Saturday. Also in high school baseball action today Thomas Dale will be at Manchester. My AIP is bit high today because I ran outside at the beach Saturday morning and my thighs are a bit sore this morning and because my left hand is sore from opening up a bottle of Gatorade. Don't forget the Colonials will be playing at Dinwiddie Tuesday at 4:30pm. MICKEY

When I think of work, it's mostly about having control over your destiny, as opposed to being at the mercy of what's out there.

Well it has been a pretty good weekend so far down here on the OBX, yesterday the the high was about 72 early in the day before the temp dropped back into the mid 60's for the remainder of the day. It did get a little cloudy but we didn't get any rain. We ate the Lone Cedar last night and the went down to the Wal-Mart to top the evening off. I guess all the motorcycles well be heading home later today to put and end to OBX Bike Week 2007, they said they had 4,000 registered bikes this year with another 1,00 that came but didn't register. I didn't bring the camera to the beach on this trip so I don't have any new sunrise photos to post so I figured I would post a photo form last July of me and Scott on the beach. The UVA baseball needed extra innings last night to beat Maryland 3-2, the Cavs are still a few % points ahead of UNC which also won yesterday, the Cavs will finish out the series with Maryland today. Bobby Labonte won yesterdays Busch race at Talladega, Kyle Busch was involved in a spectacular crash when his car barrel rolled several times but he walked away without a scratch. Today Jeff Gordon will lead the field to the green flag in the Nextel Cup race at Talladega. The New York Rangers have a must win game with the Buffalo Sabres this afternoon, if they don't win today they will go down 3-0 to the Sabres which will be a point of no return. Keith, how did Andrews team do yesterday. MICKEY

I am the beach for some much needed rest and relaxation. I came down last night with mom and dad, I came down to bring the car back. The pollen is very bad down here at the beach, the gold gar was a greenish yellow car now, it also Bike Week 2007 here on the OBX so all the Joe Bubbas are riding up riding up and down the beach revving the motors on there motorcycles. It does look like it is going to be a nice weekend weather wise here on the OBX though. The New York Rangers have dug themselves a deep hole in there best of 7 series with Buffalo losing last night 3-2 and now the Rangers trail the series 2-0, I have to say it's not looking to good for the Rangers. The Virginia Cavalier baseball team is back in 1st place again after pounding Maryland by 2 touchdowns last night 14-0 and UNC lost to NC State 11-1 so the Cavs are back in 1st place again, hopefully the Cavs will be able to win the final two games of the series and extend there lead over UNC in the ACC. Where has Donna been on the blog, I haven't seen any comments at all from her lately, has she forgot her sign in name or password. Also dad said his trip to Meadowbrook this year was much better than he had on a previous visit with a fellow blogger, he said two things made it better we won the game and his managers didn't lose his keys. I couldn't post my AIP index yesterday morning because the power went out about the time I was going to post it, I have say it was high as it is today, my left shoulder and left leg are hurting and my lower back is also very sore.

Keith got the riddle right again.

ANSWER:What did the dentist say to the golfer?
You have a hole in one.


What aways smells but has no odor?

The internet is driving me crazy this morning. I don't know if it's my computer or comcast. I've lost the blog once and I hope than doesn't happen again.

I love this picture of Andrew and Les. Andrew is getting his scorebook ready for the game.

We won our baseball game last night. The guys played one of their best games. I tried to talk Andrew into changing his Thomas Dale hat to a Colonials hat but he wanted to stay with his Knight hat.

Have a good weekend and will see you again at the ballpark.

I will be going to the beach today. Mickey is going so he can drive back our other car. Miss Kitty will stay at home. Yellow is our wild beach cat and they don't like each other. Both of them think the beach house is theirs so they have to fight about who will get to stay on the deck. I asked Al to feed Miss Kitty. I don't know why Miss Kitty doesn't understand because she was in the same place as Yellow at one time.
I can't use the writing of my name anymore because it shows up black. I hope this will change. None of my moving graphics work.


Brett Draper went the distance on the mound just allowing 6 hits, striking out 10 and walking none as the Colonials beat the Thomas Dale Knights 3-0 in CD action yesterday. It was scoreless game until the bottom of the 5th inning when the Colonials were able to push 2 runs across the plate and 1 more in the bottom of the 6th en route to a 3-0 victory, Brett also helped his own cause offensively leading the Colonials with 2 hits. The Colonials are now off until Tuesday afternoon when we travel to Dinwiddie to play the Generals at 4:30pm. In other CD games Matoaca beat Meadowbrook 18-1 and Dinwiddie beat Hopewell 14-6. In other sports action at CHHS the Colonial softball team fell to Thomas Dale 6-3, the girls soccer team fell 3-0 to TD and boys soccer team fell 1-0 to TD. The Nascar Nextel Cup and Busch series will be racing at Talladega this weekend before coming to Richmond for weekends stop on the schedule. The UVA baseball team will pay host to Maryland looking to keep pace with UNC at the tope of there division in the ACC. I have posted a link below to some of the photos AL took at last nights game, I still have to add a few more photos to the album. MICKEY

Keith got the answer to the riddle yesterday.
ANSWER:Why did the man have to fix the horn on his car?
Because it didn't give a hoot!

What did the dentist say to the golfer?

Baseball game with Thomas Dale tonight. I will see you there. I wonder if Andrew will talk to me.


The Colonial Heights Colonials baseball team will play host to the Thomas Dale Knights tonight at 6pm at Shepherd Stadium. The Knights enter the game at 4-3 in the CD while the Colonials enter the game at 6-2 in the CD. In other CD games today Hopewell will be at Dinwiddie, Meadowbrook will be at Matoaca and Prince George will be at Petersburg. The CH girls soccer team will be at Thomas Dale tonight while the boys soccer and softball teams will be at home as well tonight against Thomas Dale. I have posted a couple of links below to the photos Al took at the Meadowbrook soccer and baseball games on Tuesday. The Virginia Cavalier baseball team lost to James Madison last night 7-6 in 14 innings, the Cavaliers should not lose to a team like JMU. The New York Rangers lost game one of there best of 7 series with Buffalo last night 5-2, the Rangers have to play much better than they did last night to have any chance against Buffalo. I think that ever since our cable internet service switched from adelphia to comcast I have had more problems staying connected which frustrates me and adds to my AIP index. I hope see everybody at the baseball game. MICKEY

Round 2 of the NHL playoffs starts tonight with New York Rangers playing the Buffalo Sabres in game 1 of there best of 7 series, GO RANGERS. It looks like we might get some much needed rain today, hopefully it will hold of until after baseball practice though. MICKEY
