This week was the OMG technical meeting In St. Louis. After a weekof long hours and hard work, I went Thursday night to see the St. Louis Cardinals play the Metropolitains in the brand new Busch Stadium. I went with Kevin and Dick, who already had seats. I went all out and bought the best seat in the house. This included a catered dinner, and full service while seated just feet from home plate. It was quite a night, with the game so close I could hear the grunts of the swing, and the explosion when a ball was hit. They move fast!
It was a great game, a warm summer night, and St. Loius won after having to work a bit. The next day had me flying out of St. Louis to Cincinatti, an hour layover and on to Providence.
Today it was back to errands and working on getting the boat ready for the water.

Sunday afternoon in Atlanta Airport Posted by Picasa
Sunday afternoon in Atlanta airport. My bag made the connection to St. Louis, but they shut the door on me, so I got to spend four hours waiting for the next flight to Missouri. It made for a long day, and a late arrival.
At least I made it before the OMG meeting which started on Monday. Hopefully the return flight will be uneventful. Posted by Picasa

These children were along the roadside on the way from Guatemala to Honduras. There was a little fruitmarket in the middle of this incredibly rugged terrain. We pulled over to look at the fruit, and all these children appeared. I love the faces on these children.
