I never blame myself when I’m not hitting.  I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats.  After all, if I know it isn’t my fault that I’m not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?

[When my mom comes over to “visit”, after saying hello to everyone, she sits in the Lazy-Boy, pulls a blanket over her lap and lets the TV watch her sleep until she’s ready to go home.  She particularly enjoys sports and news.  Still, she loves visiting us (at 93).  Happy Birthday, Mom!!
We love you!  —  KMAB]

A lot of guys go, ‘Hey, Yog, say a Yogi-ism.’  I tell ’em, ‘I don’t know any.’  They want me to make one up.  I don’t make ’em up.  I don’t even know when I say it.  They’re the truth.  And it is the truth.  I don’t know.

The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.
    —    Yogi Berra
[Today my wife will be boarding a jet to go visit her family back in Liverpool.  Her mum isn’t doing too well these days and this may be Hil’s last chance to be with her before her mum passes.  The trip will be sad for Hil and lonely for me as she will be away for seven weeks.  As with every separation, I miss her before she has even gone.  Sometimes, I’m just silly that way…
PS:  Today’s post title is a line from the song: “Ferry Cross The Mersey“, by Gerry and the Pacemakers.  Liverpool sits on the north shore of the River Mersey estuary.  LOL  …And so ends the combo musical lyrics and geography lesson for today.  —  KMAB]
