Atlanta Braves- World Series CHAMPIONS!


The Atlanta Braves won the 6th game of the World Series beating the Houston Astros 7-0.  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YAY!

Even if you care nothing at all about sports, you must love a good story of a team going from last to first place, of a group of men who believe in themselves and in each other.  It is a good story.

If you didn't read my last post, then please go back and read that link to the piece written by Joc Pederson!

At the closing credits of the game last night, one of the announcers said that they overcame all the obstacles that came their way...and isn't that something that we can all take to heart?

Ozzie Albies stole a base during one of the games and because of the offer from Taco Bell, "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" can go tomorrow in the USA (Nov. 4th) and get a free taco! Not only that, it looks like they will also give away a baseball card too.  It is the baseball card that I hope I can get!

Ah, Atlanta Braves baseball.  For all the times of attending games with my Dad as a child, of attending games with my son as he was growing up, of explaining the game to my English husband (who now knows it better than I do!) and to the memory of watching games with my Dad over the phone, I thank you.

I planted Cosmos from seed but they waited until October to bloom and they are still blooming.  Reach for the sun!


  1. An amazing win! Go Braves! I’m also a longtime fan and fellow Georgian so I was happy to see your post this morning. I don’t have a blog of my own so I don’t normally comment but just had to for this :) I enjoy your blog - Arlene

  2. Congrats to your team! You'll have a big smile on your face for quite awhile because of this!

  3. Your post radiates such joy today, it is wonderful to read, Kay!
    Congratulations to your team winning! I hope you'll get the baseball card tomorrow :-)

    PS: Since you posted "I can see clearly now" on your last post, it's been playing in my head, and we've had indeed some bright, sunshine-y days!

  4. Well done to that team ! It sounds like the same buzz I get when Wales win at the rugby. What a beautiful photo of a beautiful flower x

  5. The first thing I thought of was how happy your father would be. Congratulations.
