The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame hosts an annual salute to veterans each year on Memorial Day. For the past several years the event has been produced by Bill Wilkinson shown here in a red blazer. Bill also plays piano and sings as part of the show. At age 90 he says this will be his last year to organize the show but seemed ageless as he performed at Monday night's concert. Sue and I attended and can witness that it was an excellent show. Read about it in this article from the Tulsa World.
I drove over to Wagoner Saturday morning to watch my son Luke's little girl Wren play her first game of T-ball. Three year old T-ball is an interesting game. The ball is hit from the top of a waist high rubber tube. There are no outs, no score, and every batter gets on base. The idea is to teach the kids about being part of a team and gain a general idea of baseball. Each player can have a helper (dad, mom) who is on the field with them to keep them pointed in the right direction. It is a bit chaotic but highly entertaining. Wren did great. She is the only girl on the team and not in the least intimidated by that. She has her very own pink glove, a pink bat and she had a ball (pun intended).
The challenge this week was for a small animal. My son Luke's dog Gus was small for a little while. Gus is an American Bull Terrier, also known as a Pit Bull. He has the typical Pit Bull temperament - sweet and mellow.
