I’ve been in N.H. this week.  We brought the nice sunny weather from Southern Cal!!  It has been in the 50’s here but the rain will start Saturday when we leave :-))  I was supposed to be in N.H. the prior week BUT I had to leave that week open in the event that my Doyers were going to the World Series.  Oh well,    The only thing I regreat that I missed this week back home was that Vin Scully was going to be at the HRTS (Hollywood Radio & Television Society) luncheon on Tuesday 11/10/09.   Had I been in L.A. I would have gone to the luncheon to hear Vin Scully’s stories.  

 HRTS Vin Scully Luncheon

The good news is that Vin Scully said Tuesday he will continue in the broadcast booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers through the 2010 season, then decide whether he will walk away :-(.  I know the day is coming, I just want the last year of Vin to be a memorable one.  

“When the team takes the field and the crowd roars, it triggers something in me,” he told the audience at the Beverly Wilshire hotel. “Forget about where they are in the standings, I think that’s the secret. You just do the game and enjoy the game.”

Vin, who turns 82 on Nov. 29, and his wife Sandy celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary Tuesday.   Congratulations Mr and Mrs Scully!

    The Dodgers hit the commodoity market jackpot with several gold and silver awards in the last few days.
    Congrats to Matt Kemp and Orlando Hudson for their Gold Glove selections.
    And let’s not forget the Silver Sluggers that Andre Either and Kemp bagged tonight.
    Now Kemp only needs some sort of bronze of platnium awards and he will have the trinity of precious metals.
    Always great to see your guys get the press for doing it with both a bat and their gloves.
    Totally awesome news for Big Blue.

    It will be a very emotional day when Vin Scully walks away from the broadcast booth. As an aspiring broadcaster, he is one of my greatest roll models, and I am looking into Fordham University because he went there.
    Congrats to your boys for the Gold Gloves and Silver Sluggers, they certainly deserve them!

    Andre and Ethier are first timers with these awards so I am so happy for them!
    Yep! Gold and Silver for our Kemp!
    thanks! I am in Boston now as I have an early (6:30) flight tomorrow morning from here.
    OM! Will it ever be emotional for us fans! I think I will take a box of kleenex that final day when Vin broadcasts. You should really write to him at the stadium. He does responds.
    Ethier was a breath of fresh air watching him play! I saved all my tickets from his walk-offs at home!

    Thank you so much! You too! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Last Saturday I went to a Tamale making party. It was a lot of fun. We had women and men helping out. My friend Stephanie alwasy invited me every year but this is the first year I was able to attend. There was so much food Prior to making the tamales and once those were done everyone took a bag home.
    God bless you too and happy Thanksgiving!
