Not sure if I ever told about my dad playing on a baseball league in Hesperia. The Roosters were out in the field. My dad was the third baseman, and once, when a grounder came his way, a dog wanted the ball in the worst way. Daddy grabbed it and threw it and the dog nailed my dad’s right leg.
I always remembered that moment; blood going everywhere, screaming and my mom screaming at me to shut up. She was the town nurse. He had that scar forever. In those days you didn’t have stitches, you had a butterfly bandage put on.
On that same field I later slid into home and ran a nail holding down home-plate into my leg. I still have that scar.
I awakened early before sunrise and saw my Venus low in the Eastern sky. It’s a little toward north.
“An early morning grouping of stars and planets can be seen by looking low in the east at 5:00 a.m. The brightest planet, Venus, is below the second brightest planet, Jupiter, in Taurus the Bull. The bright orange star Aldebaran appears below Venus, and the attractive Pleiades star cluster appears in a line with the other objects above Jupiter. A telescope will reveal the crescent phase of Venus, and the moving moons and cloud belts of Jupiter.” Sky Report. This is the time of year to enjoy these beautiful planets, although you may have to beat off the mosquitoes. They don’t like me ..usually!
