Last night TJ pitched his final inning as a White Sox
We lost in the playoffs which completes our in-house
Next year TJ moves up to the Senior Division
and a whole new draft begins.
We had a great 3 years as a White Sox with great coaches,
players and parents. All will be missed, but TJ looks forward
to the competition the senior
division will bring.
No time to rest as Travel season is in full bloom.
We open our season Thursday night at 8pm in
North Aurora, followed by a triple header Saturday
Long day of ball as each game lasts 2 1/2 + hrs
They may play Sunday depending on Thur-Sat
TJ lives for Travel season as the level of play
and competition is fierce.
Do I dare begin to think that in 1 year
TJ will be playing High School Ball?
Wasn't he just a cute little towheaded 2 year old?

We went back up to Whitewater WI this weekend. My father in law joined us
and for Fathers Day we had a nice dinner at The Duck Inn
Welcome to The Duck Inn, a historic Supper Club located on the corner of County A and Hwy 89 in the township of Richmond, city of Delavan, WI. The name, The Duck Inn, originated first during the prohibition era when the Duck Inn was a speak easy. Therefore, patrons were to secretly "duck in" for a drink where the bartender would tell a patron to be quiet and "speak easy".
After prohibition ended, Wisconsin Liquor licenses were issued mostly outside the city limits, with the contingency that the establishment must serve food. To make use of the liquor license, establishments started to specialize in dinners, thus "supper clubs" were born.
In 1994, The Duck Inn was purchased by Jeff Karbash with the goal to restore The Duck Inn to a traditional supper club. The Karbash Family created an inviting atmosphere with casual fine dining in an elegant country setting. This is done with a historical duck theme, festive holiday decorations, friendly accommodating staff, and fine food & cocktails.
The rest of the weekend was fabulous, so relaxing. Boating,
swimming, sunning, reading and eating.
My weeks are so jammed
packed with running around that 2 days at the lake is all I need
to recharge my batteries
