Hello World!

Any week during which the White Sox win the World Series must be categorized as a good week. We lived in Chicago for four years when my husband and I were both in graduate school there, our older son was born there, and every Monday night home game we got $4 upper deck seats at Comiskey Park and went to see Frank Thomas, Robin Ventura, Bo Jackson, Tim Raines, Ozzie Guillen, Joey Cora and the rest of the early 1990s team. I am sorry that Thomas was unable to play in the series, but delighted with the outcome anyway.

But this is my favorite season anyway. My afternoon yesterday was taken up with a fourth grade class field trip to a local stream so the kids could see what plants and animals they could identify and try to determine how healthy the stream is. It's about a half-mile walk from the school to the spot where we did our observations, down a steep muddy hill where there was much ruination of clothes, though that hardly mattered because the kids waded into the stream to stir up the mud at the bottom and see what invertebrates could be directed into their nets. We found several salamanders and small fish, though nobody caught a crayfish or a turtle, which was of some disappointment but I don't think it's the best season for either. It was perfect weather for being outdoors in the woods.

Monday I will don my Starfleet uniform for its annual airing and give out candy. Halloween always makes me think of Star Trek!
