It rained this morning and so I was pretty certain that our lunchtime softball practice would be canceled. It stopped raining about an hour before practice and would you believe it, it wasn’t canceled. There were five of us that braved the muddy field to throw the ball around and take some batting practice. I was among them. I was also the only one to go down in the mud chasing after a ball. I hadn’t planned bringing my gym clothes home today, but I did. They needed some laundering.

Pretty productive day at work. I made some good progress on some data migration stuff. Otherwise, routine.

Lots of phone calls this evening. he11o_sunshine and stubiebrother are back from Paris and I spoke to them for a while. I also talked to strausmouse and vickyandnorm. No mail of worth today.
