The colors of Fall

I love the changing colors of the leaves on the trees. We are fortunate to be able to see and enjoy the changing season. Here is a picture of our only tree in our front yard.

Rams 33 - Millbury 14

Northbridge High had a great game, they are eighth-ranked. Rams’ had a 33-14 win over Millbury on Saturday at Lasell Field. This was the re-assigned homecoming weekend, the original date was rained out. 70+ degrees a great day for food, raffles and a ball game. Not to mention I won two silent auctions.

Red Sox 3, Angels 2 ALDS Game 4

Well if the night before was not a nailbiter - hands clasp in a prayer formation - sitting on the edge of your seat - then last night game certainly was. 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth - we won! Way to go Lowrie and Bay (scoring run)!

Way to go Sox!!!!
ALCS here we come Friday 8:35 EST Game 1 with The Rays.

Red Sox 4, Angels 5 - ALDS Game 3

What a long game - something like 5 hours... hands clasped in a prayer as we watched inning after inning hoping the Red Sox would pull out a run and win. After 12.. we lost.

Ellsbury tried to steal and over shot the base in the 7th... and got caught - oh baby!
5th inning double
Ellsbury scored off of Youk's in the 5th They called him out in the 10th! - no way!

Rob Thomas - Foxwoods - 10-5-08

My sister and I went to see Rob Thomas (you may know him from Matchbox 20).
I just love his voice and his song writing.

These are some pics from the concert - yah yah - we were far away - but had a great time. He did this concert to raise money for Sidewalk Angles Foundation.
