Los Angeles Dodger’s pitcher Rich Hill (I don’t think Hill has a Twitter account!) took a 91 MPH ball to the neck/throat area last night. It was painful to watch. Although I admire his bravado in staying in the game, I would’ve ran to the hospital. Afterwards the cameras remained on him more closely than usual, and it was painful watching the area of impact redden and swell. I kept thinking how he could easily have an internal injury. Imagine how scary it would be if Hill developed a breathing problem later in the night. In the end, he will probably have a massive bruise on his neck.
Dodgers lost to the Padres.
Do you know what this plant is? It has three leaves. I want to pull it, but I’m afraid to touch it.
Today I discovered what brings the deer to the far back yard. There is a mulberry tree. I didn’t see it last year. Everything is more green and lush this year since we had a heavier winter than the winter before. The lowest limb is not low enough for the deer, actually it’s quite high. Plenty of berries fall on the ground, where I suspect the deer are getting them from.
