I got home from work Sunday morning after an awesome final shift. I made it a point to linger a the top of the stairs and listen for a Cheeseburger Bird call...got some too!
Now the season is a wrap. I slept through most of the night Sunday despite watching President Obama's Bin Laden presser. I woke up around 0230 and drifted back to sleep an hour or two later, and awoke for good at 0730. So far, so good...my BodyClock is responding nicely.
It's warming nicely around Truckee, Sierra Stream Trout Season opened last week and the DFG has been planting catchable trout in Donner Lake. Good thing too, the streams are way up...Kayaker's Heaven...fly fishers? Not so much...try July...
Baseball is warming up too, but it's already deep into Torture Season for the SF Giants...It seems almost every game, another Giant gets hurt bad enough to miss some games...newly resurgent phenom Pablo Sandoval "The Panda" is out for 6-8 weeks after breaking the hamate bone in his hand. Sandoval had successful surgery Tuesday to remove the broken bits.
Sandoval is only the latest...high-priced starting pitcher Barry Zito banged up his foot and is on the Disabled List...center fielder Andrés Torres is also rehabbing an Achilles Tendon sprain. NLCS MVP outfielder Cody Ross began the season on the DL, as did the fearless closer Brian "Fear the Beard" Wilson, and reliever Santiago Casilla. It's like a damn 90's TV Medical Drama I tell ya!
Ahhh well, good signs in the Giants 10th inning victory tonight...nobody got hurt...and the bats are wakin' up, too.
My BodyClock Project continues apace...I woke up at 0300 Wednesday, and I'll be going back to sleep in just a few minutes...today is Distributor Day...gotta get the trash and recycling out to the curb this morning as well...
