I hope everyone has had a great season so far, and you're looking forward to tournament ball.
As many of you know, I have not umpired in 3 years mainly due to poor health. As of this past March 1, I also retired from my 30+ year job at BellSouth and hope to be continuing my career in a part time position.
I have not given up ever umpiring again (that is until I can't walk or trot--lol)
I miss the girls, the game and the umpire commarderie (spelling?) but not the dam heat and humidity! It's been awful here in Atlanta Metro. If you're umpiring the 18U Gold here, let me know and I'll come out to see you.
Let me know what you've been doing! How is Papa Smurf? And you Mike, Don, Steve, Scott, et al?
Oh, before I forget, do any of you have the URL to the website with the smilies that Papa and I used to copy on our posts here and on eteamz?

Hi Elaine,
I will be there at the gold.
I was out in Killeen at the advanced camp this year with quite a few people from the Atlanta area.
Hope to see you there.

Scott

Cool

DD Renee had severe tendinitis of her left (throwing arm) starting in July 2002, but she didn't tell me as I was in and out of the hospital with 2 surgeries. During my convalesence, she returned from the NSA National and immediately started HS softball. Remember, Georgia plays HS softball in the fall.
So, about 5 games into the season, she was holding her shoulder a lot and finally complained about it. According to the Orthopedic, she should have been better after laying off all throwing for 4 weeks and 2 times a week therepy for 6 weeks. She wasn't, would have required surgery and she wasn't fond of it. She tried to play 18U A in Spring of 2003, but it was no go. Her career ended. Too bad as that last travel ball season, her defensive % at 1st base was 958 for over 120 games. Oh well.
Scott, send me your particulars concerning the Gold via email: [email protected], and who you met from Georgia.
Since I'm not umpiring, I'm a scorekeeper for one of my old associations---Gwinnett Umpires. Slow pitch at county facilities. I've got 7 games on Saturday.

See ya on the field!

Hi Elaine,

Good to see you back here on the board. I will be at the 18U Gold also. I am looking forward to meeting everyone here on the board who will be there (or live there). It would be so great to put faces to names.

Look forward to meeting you all there.

Glen, thanks for the URL but I couldn't get any smilies to come up. Is there another way to get there?
Serge and Scott, I hope to be able to come out to see you all, and maybe Renee will come with me.
Keep on posting, I'm still reading!

Hi Elaine,

It's good to hear from you again. Sorry to hear about Renee, but maybe you can get her into the blue.
