Wanna' Be

| | Comments (0)

You know, I guess I'd better own up to the truth. I wanna be a Seattlite. But I'm not. I picked this header because it makes me think of where I wanna' be. I live in the Hudson Valley, not the Pacific Northwest. And until MT offers better choices or variety in their style library for "decorating" my blog, this is as attractive and meaningful as it's going to get.

Yoo Hoo Yogi

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
Yogi Berra

I met this guy when I was about 5. My father arranged for him to come to my brother's little league (Westland Hills, in Albany, NY) -- a promotional event for the YooHoo drink. My Godfather's bottling plant had just started selling the beverage, and in those days, Yogi was big. We're talking 1965. My brother was a catcher, and we drove to NYC many times each season for ballgames. My Father always had one playing on the radio. I still prefer to hear them rather than watch. But really, I just love the quotes. They comepltely describe a personality. If you've got one of his good ones, send it my way, please...

We're lost, but we're making good time.
