Episode 102: Forget the Calendar! Warm Spring Weather & Baseball Season?

autographed batters glove

As I wake up each day out here stepping outside the off grid camper it almost seems like spring has arrived early this year. The warmer weather in the beginning of March along with some subtle signs from mother nature make an early spring this year more real. The bees are beginning to buzz about, the birds seem to be chirping with a little more enthusiasm, spiders of all kinds seem to be a bit more acrobatic, the trees are budding with anticipation of the warmer weather, and the frogs continue their nightly symphony serenading the sun at the dawn of each new day. Yup.. Forget the calendar mother nature knows that spring is here! 🙂 Once again i have been gathering a lot more woodautographed batters glove for this years garden. If you are asking don’t you have enough already? Well.. no not yet. I am trying to get as much as I can out of the forest before the ticks and snakes are in full swing for the warm spring season.

Today’s Time Travel Tuesday segment flashes back 27 years ago to the year of 1989. Back then I was living in Washington State. As a kid I had a paper route and one year the Seattle Times newspaper was offering prizes for selling new subscriptions. This particular year I was fortunate enough to be able to go to a major league baseball game with the Seattle Mariners vs the Boston Redsox. If you are reading this before listening to the Time Travel Tuesday segment I will not spoil it for you. I will however give you a clue about today’s item(s) if you have not already guessed by the featured image here in the show notes. Today’s story takes us back to 1989 just after a baseball game when I experienced a moment of being starstruck as Darnell Coles of the Seattle Mariners baseball team autographed my batters glove. If you are a big baseball fan and would like to learn more check out Darnell Coles stats on Baseball Almanac.
