Just another old-guy Sunday

Mookie Wilson, John Kruk, and me.

One of these men is not like the others,
One of these fellows just doesn't belong.
Can you tell me which one's not like the other,
By the time I finish this song?

That's right boys and girls, Krukie only has one testicle!

In addition to being MLB All Stars, we three also share a February 10 birthday.

Admittedly, I played my MLB career in a different dimension, but that's such a minor difference that it really doesn't count. Besides, my blog, my rules.

Whilst engaged in my morning workout I received a delightful electronical missive from a farmer friend in Herefordshire.

To which I replied,


Spring will arrive in five weeks. Here on the High Plains at 41N, the daffodils won't come until a month later, but they'll come. And we will see snow encrusted tulips in March.

Poor Nona though, she's been having a problem with hip arthritis. She wants to go with me so bad, but she needs to rest and rehab.

Such a beautiful day, here and in England.


  1. Happy (Belated) Birthday old chum!

    Was out and about all weekend, so I'm late to the party. Lovely vids and pics, hopefully Nona the Wonder Dog is feeling better.

    1. Thanks Sarge!

      Nona seems to be feeling better today. According to the vet she's got arthritis rather than hip dysplasia, which is good. She's getting to be an olden dog though and will catch me in a couple of months if the 7:1 dog:human year formula is correct, and she's got a two-speed motor; off and full blast, so we need to slow her down a bit. Which is tricky, but we'll figure it out.

  2. Thanks for taking us along on your workout. I've been slack'n in the warrior granny yoga department, but you have encouraged me to get with it again...

  3. "According to the vet she's got arthritis rather than hip dysplasia, which is good."

    That is good, the two dogs we had both got hip dysplasia and was not good. Miss those dogs, I do.

    I got a little exercise today, shoveling some slushy snow. About the only exercise I've gotten in a while. However, the weather guessers think that we have more snow coming this week, so I'll get some more.

    Thanks for the post.

  5. Is today your birthday? If so, Happy Birthday. If not, may this day be a great one anyway.
