Not much going on in this part of the tropics these days. We had a LOT of rain near the end of last week, enough that the warning tracks in centerfield were flooded for a bit, making that area unplayable. It was mostly cloudy yesterday and it looked like the heavens could open up at any time, but it stayed dry.
Rumor has it that we’ll be going back to Juan Dolio next week for a brief stay during the Holy Week before Easter. I’ve also heard that we might just be staying at the campus, though most of the players will be going home or going to Tampa. At any rate, the break begins next Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on who you’re talking to, and finishes on the following Monday. If we end up staying at the campus, I’ll be spending most of the off time at the beach in Boca Chica. 😎
I hope my mother and my brother are enjoying their week in Mazatlan. They were going to fly over for a few days to visit me, but they were unable to make any good flight connections in the short time they have.
I might also add how homesick I’ve been lately–not for the U.S., but for Thailand and Laos. Geez, I miss that area of the world. When I was working in Korea, I could visit every 5 or 6 months, but now I’m limited to once a year, and it’s been since last August that I was there. I keep telling myself that it’s “only” a bit less than 4 months when I can return, but that seems like a looooooooong time. More later.
