I link to a few blogs over on the right. I should add a few more and I'll get on that. But, for now, let's look at 2 of them because I, Mother Crab, ended up sandwiched between the two. Let me explain.

The theme of this outing wasn't beer. Juxtapose, if you will, the photos and see for yourself.

Now, before Timman gets a complex, I want him to know that I really had a great time at the game. Once I was there I realized that I really do not get out in the general public much. My life has become somewhat insulated and I attribute that to my
