Well, the Astros are going to lose their mooring spot at the very bottom of the National League's Central division if they're not careful. They've now won two games in a row. Oh, no! Thank goodness it's All-Star break time.
This coming weekend, beginning on Friday, the Cubs will be in town and then our place will become more firmly anchored as they beat our you-know-whats big time!
I have never been a Cubs fan. I really dislike it when the opposing team's fans outnumber yours on your own field and, unfortunately, that has been the case here in Houston for many many years. I would imagine that this weekend will see an absolute 'sea' of red at Minute Maid Park.
At least they don't have that extremely annoying and irritating 'tomahawk chop' and chant!
Anyway, I made some potato salad today for the first time in several years. Managed to put more than a good-sized dent in it while I watched the 'Stros. Yummy!
The last time I made potato salad was when I was in Memphis visiting a special friend. We were going to be having some company over for dinner, conversation, and cards. Butch was busy vegetable chopping and doing his 'thing' with the grill (he's quite adept in the kitchen).
Friends arrived, dinner was served, and the next sound I heard was something like "Yech!". Three of us turned to stare at the 'yecher' who was busy spitting MY potato salad out of her mouth! (?)
Turns out she's allergic to eggs. I always put eggs in my potato salad. Doesn't everyone? (Rhetorical question, only.)
My 'feast' ended with a bunch of watermelon. Double yummy!! I am now out of watermelon, but still have a bunch of Bing cherries to savor. Those'll do me until I get back to Randall's on Tuesday.
SO! How was your day?
