See these tall buildings in Atlanta, Georgia? This photo was taken from I-75. We were there today but it was a very overcast day, so I am showing you this photo from last October! It's funny to see them this closely since we are used to seeing just the tops of them from our trips to Arabia Mountain!
Ah, here is the view of Atlanta that I am most familiar with...this is from Turner Field, the home of the Atlanta Braves. I have been taking our son to see the Braves since he was about six years old. Since Christopher is in his early 20's now, I have been going here for a while! (And I went to MY first Braves game in 1967 when the Atlanta Fulton County Stadium was on this spot!) By the way, if you ever go to a Braves game, did you know that you can sign up to be a designated driver and they give you a little paper bracelet to wear and you recieve a voucher for a free soft drink? (All the while, they solemnly inform you that by wearing the bracelet, you will NOT be served any alcohol!) Hey, somebody needs to be sober!
Our son called us from Turner Field last night and excitedly told us that he was prepared to enjoy the Braves game...just after, it began raining and was delayed for almost two hours! Oh well, that's baseball! That's life! You win some, you lose some and some get rained out! (The Braves played and won!)
And hey, you will never guess what happened in the game! One of the bat boys (I am not kidding, if you don't know baseball, this is what they are called) was asked to rescue a...BAT from the baseball field! And I don't mean a baseball bat, I mean a real mosquito-eating winged animal! It must have been stunned, because later they showed the bat flying away unhurt. YAY! You never know what you will see at a baseball game!
