"Buy Me Some Peanuts and Cracker Jack!"

I haven't mentioned the new Cub's season lately. But, this little incident has prompted me to speak out. On Wednesday, the Cubs took the field with a rather unknown starting line up. Coach Lou had decided to give most of the "regulars" the day off and give the "bench warmers" a day on the field. As several newcomers took their positions on the field, another new comer took her position in the upper deck. It was Saffron's very first Cub game. According to mom and dad, she really enjoyed the game but not the final score. I'm not reading anything into this, but it was the only game the Cubs lost this week (so far). Saffy promises that she will bring home a win if mom and dad take her to another game, soon. She told Grandma Jo that she could probably have better luck if she had one of those cute pink Cubs caps (one that fits). Here are a couple of shots taken at the old ball yard.

"Take me out with the crowd?"
(Dad likes to get there early)

"Let me root, root, root for the home team!"

"Almost had that foul ball."

"It's one, two, three strikes she's out at the old ball game."
