First a quick story……..I’m not really one to go to baseball games, BUT as a young child I went to a few. You see my dad was a policeman and would work at some of the games, baseball, football, you name it. This one time we were at a baseball game, the Denver Bears as they were called way back when, were playing. My dad tells me, “the next ball that guy hits is going to be a foul ball, it’s going to come to me, I’m going to catch and give it to you.” Well, being a young girl I had to go potty, couldn’t wait for the guy to hit the ball. When I returned I ask my dad “so, where’s the ball? “ Dad goes on “well, he hit the foul ball and it came right at me……I had to run to get away from it! It was going so fast I might have broken my hand!” ….well I didn’t get a ball that night, but I got something better, a story and a night out with dad………..NOW my card….
Say, anyone need a ride? Curt is all loaded up with “baseball gear” and his bus is “almost” ready to go just needs a little air in the tires. hehe Been awhile since he took a “road” trip so he is plenty excited. Don’t worry about the cost, Curt is feeling generous and is offering a “free ride” today. SO give him a call, space is limited. Confused???? Go here for the story.
Another hand drawn scene, colored with copics. For the border, I colored the edges with a red sharpie, then added the white acrylic paint squares and a little doodling after. Put this all on a blue AC card.
Well, off to do my routine grocery shopping, will return later…….TFL :0)

I'm glad you mentioned the tires, I thought they looked a little flat! Curt needs to get rid of some of his load, or those tires are gonna burst! I love that Curt is ready to roll, even more, I love where he's put his ball cap!
Cathy, I love your story about the ball game and your Dad! I've got a few of them too, like when he showed up at my First Communion in uniform, thank goodness he wasn't coming to arrest someone!

I'm glad to at last have time to catch up with Curt and his adventures - and yours too :D. I hope Curt has plenty of room in that bus -I can see it getting as full as the African taxi buses if he's picking up all the tea-potters.
Curt can I sit in the front seat with you? (I get bus sick unless I sit in the front) Maybe they'll let me drive. Curt you always make me smile and make my heart glad. I think you will have the same effect on Officer Strauser.

Curt is very fashionable in his snazzy card. I'm not a baseball fan either. Someone, who has since moved away - thank God, used to take us to a ball game every August. I dreaded it all summer - I would have rather had root canal- the fog (couldn't see), the bugs, the clammy seats - does it sound like I have fond memories?
