no place like home

Yesterday’s Phenology: a pleasant enough fall day, if you like overcast drizzly sort of days. It was in the low 50s this afternoon; enough drizzle to almost call it rain. A little foggy in the morning. Just generally a pretty perfect day. A good day for a baseball game. Let’s play two.

Song of the day: Woodrow Buddy Johnson and Count Basie, Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit that Ball?
