Take Me Out To The Ball Game

 Another Arizona Diamondbacks game. Doug's company rented a suite and had food catered in so we could all be together and watch the game. It was fun. I've never sat at a game and had cheesecake. mmmmm...
 We were pretty high up but it was fun. One ball came our way and went right below us. This was at Chase Field that used to be BOB, with the retracting roof.
 A parade of guys smoothing the dirt.

The TGI Fridays restaurant to the side of us.
The swimming pool was right below us. I did not lean
over to get a photo of that.
The view out the other side of the park.
That's Camelback Mountain in the distance.
A fun day away from the computer but I thought it was so sad how many people sat and played on their smart phones even at the party! About half of the ones sitting down where we were. I think that is a very sad statement about our society these days.
Have a great week!!


  1. It's true everyone is very detached from the 'here and now' I saw it all the time with my oldest daughter. She would text me when with her friends then text with them while with me. No real interaction in person. It did change after I educated her on the behavior. I know it's something people need pointed out to them before they realize it.

    1. Depends on the person but I would think many of them don't want to be educated. They just don't get it.
