The Cubs won again today. I was actually able to leave the game behind and go can tomatoes at the Ethers. I'm glad I did.
It was more fun than the game. Luckily, though, Mr Ether let me "watch" the game on his computer. I was thrilled when the Cubs held on to beat St Louis once again. Unfortunately, the Brewers also won, staying one game behind the first place Cubs. Grace Ether couldn't quite fathom why I cared. I tried to explain it to her. I think she thought I was a bit.................strange. But, only 12 games left in the season. Will they hold on to first and win the division? Will they win in the playoffs and go on to the World Series? Cub fans everywhere are trying not to get their hopes up. Whatever happens, Wrigley field will be covered in snow and ice and I'll be at home, making a wonderful meal with the tomato sauce we canned today!
