A Simple Life

Nittany finding a place to lay her head.

She was so bright and beautiful with her wings open, but it was so cool that she didn’t open them long enough for me to get a shot.  :(

The biggest Orioles’ fan

As some of you know, my son Andrew has Hurler syndrome and is developmentally delayed.  He is almost 15, but very small for his age.  He is a HUGE Orioles fan.  As the O’s are now down 4-0 in the playoff series, he decided to take things into his own hands. 

 We had all gone to bed, and we were all listening to the O’s game on the radio, in our own rooms.  After is was over, Andrew come over and closed our bedroom door.  I didn’t think anything of it.  I figured he was getting up to get something to eat. 
    This morning, when I went in his room, I noticed his backpack was packed, complete with his baseball pants, shirt, cleats, glove and a change of clothes.  Wondering what that was all about, I ran into my daughter, who told me how Andrew had come over to her room, during the night, and informed her that he was leaving for Kansas City, to be there in time for tonight’s game, because the Orioles needed his help. He had written me a note, explaining where he had gone. 
   Thank God she was awake, and talked him out of it!  I wonder where he would be now.
