Even though March went out like a lion...

Even though it's snowing and blowing and 23 degrees outside...

We are watching the Twins season opener against the LA Angels. They are winning by one. I am really getting into this game. This is the first year we have been able to watch Twins games here (with satellite, of course.)

Yesterday I saw the first kingfisher of the season. And the first dark eyed junco.

Today I saw a fox sparrow to go along with the dark eyed junco.

Geese are calling everywhere.

And I have a few tomato seedlings that have just sprouted.

Life is good. It's the bottom of the 7th. Gotta return to the game.

Update...**THE TWINS WON!!** Carlos Gomez is pretty awesome. And Starflower and I agree, relief pitcher Joe Nathan is pretty hot. ;) It's a girl thing.

And my son, Mr. Attitude is asking about his Hall of Fame/relative namesake, Joe Sewell, who played for the Yankees and the Indians. My great uncle was also a minor league player for the Red Sox. It's in his blood.

Deb, Glad we had the dome! What an opening day! My husband and I are going to watch and listen to the games this year. The Vikings are leaving a sour taste. I left a couple of messages on your Lake Superior blog.

Whoa slugger!
Look at that intensity.

Cindy- Yes, there has been a lot of second guessing about the decision to build an outdoor stadium. Weather will happen!

I am thinking, there goes a huge amount of time now that we can actually watch the games!

FC- Yeah. He's got it. He wants to sign up for a traveling league this summer. I hope we can do it.
