Second Sunday after Pentecost

We took a lengthly hike this afternoon to the top of nearby Gfoler Alm where there is a little farmhouse sitting in one of the many beautiful mountain meadows. The woman who lives there brought water and apple juice out to refresh us, as well as cheesebread, apple strudel, and coffee. It was really delightful, and we even managed to buy some fresh churned butter from her cows. But we are exhausted. Carrying these two kids up and down these mountains is getting pretty tiring.

And the Tigers are losing badly, so perhaps I'll throw in the towel and head to bed...

Democracy is going too far when you pay the COWS for butter!

Maybe I could have phrased that differently...

". . . the Tigers are losing badly. . ."

Good thing for Verlander, Jackson, and Porcello, or this season would be even worse than the last one. . .

How 'bout the Porcello kid, tho? He's younger than Justin, and in his first major-league at-bats, goes 2-for-3, with 2RBIs, while allowing one earned run. . .
