A Dream Come True

I have always been very envious of the children who are given the opportunity to run around the bases after Sunday games at Nats Park. Why not seniors, too? Well, seniors *were* offered this opportunity and I took advantage of it, of course. One of the rules,however, was: No running!

My friends Barbara and Joel and I went to Nats Park yesterday. We saw a great game in which the Nats beat the DBacks 8-3 and then we strolled the bases. What a thrill to stand on the bases! (I had no idea that they were so hard!) The Presidents were on the infield and greeted us warmly - except for Calvin Coolidge. He was rather quiet. No surprise there!

Below you can see some photos from this very special occasion.
