I have had a slight case of writers block lately. I also am getting ready for a trip which hasn't helped at all. My vacation starts September 1. I am going to leave on the third for Illinois. I will be there about 5 days. I am looking forward to yet, yet there is a little sadness since this is the first time I have been back since Dad passed away last year. I will start blogging again after I return.
Before I go, I want to respond to Rob and Jeff about the Pete Rose situation. I agree that there are guys in there who morally are much worse than Pete. In fact, while I am on my break I will do some research and will do a post about Ty Cobb. My main objection to Pete was he put himself above the rules, and I recall reading somewhere in a Good Book about reaping what you sow. I understand why you feel Pete belongs.
In case you are wondering about the picture, I did a Google image search for short break and that popped up. It is from the Northern Ireland Tourist Board. You can find it here.
I will resume the fifth grader questions when I return. Just in case somebody didn't actually know, "Custer's Last Stand" took place at the Battle Of The Little Big Horn. It was in all the papers at the time.
