The World Makes Sense Again!

As some of of you may know I’ve been playing recreational slo-pitch, it looks something like this…

BLAM-O

The glove you see in the picture is not a fancy glove, it’s not expensive either and it doesn’t make me a better player, but it’s my glove, I’ve had it for a few years and I’ve grown to like it very much.

Then three weeks ago, it went missing, we show up to our weekly game and no glove. My best guess was that I forgot it at the previous game the week prior. No way on earth I’ll ever see it again.

In a last ditch effort I contact the Calgary Sports and Social Club, the people that run the slo-pitch league that I play in. Laura takes down my details and tells me that she’ll reach out to the other teams to see if anyone found it. I don’t hold out much hope and about ten days later I’ve written the glove off. Then literally the next day I get up in the morning and check my email to get an email from Laura that my glove was found by Chris from another team. She provides Chris’s details and I reach out to Chris who responds within a few hours and later that day I’m re-united with my favourite glove.

Sometimes things happen and the world makes sense again. It was a little thing but still.

Still making a point of going for walks with the camera, todays pictures;

Fish Creek Park – It’s better than the Calgary Zoo!!!

We went for a short walk yesterday to stretch our legs and my new camera and we saw, deer, an owl, chickadees, and a nut hatch (Shareen doesn’t know which one). All that with no crowds or crying kids.

Here are the pictures…damn I wish I had my rifle!

Trying to show the power and effects of the Bow River in Calgary during the 2013 flooding. Again, this is the day after it supposedly crested.
