Pre Blast 7/4/20- Baseball at The Mutt

Plumb Bob, people will come Plumb Bob. They’ll come to The Mutt for reasons they can’t even fathom. They’ll turn up Cherrywood Drive not knowing for sure why they’re doing it. They’ll arrive at The Mutt as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won’t mind if you look around, you’ll say.Continue reading “Pre Blast 7/4/20- Baseball at The Mutt”

12/13/19 The Chopper at the Vets Back-Blast

PAX(9):Continue reading “12/13/19 The Chopper at the Vets Back-Blast”

12/13 The Chopper at the Vets Pre-Blast

Fun Fact #1: In the original lyrics to the Twelve Days of Christmas, the fourth gift was “four colly birds”.  Colly was a regional English term meaning “coal black”.  Due to the obscurity of the word, over time it has been replaced with canary birds, collie birds, colored birds, and finally our standard calling birds.Continue reading “12/13 The Chopper at the Vets Pre-Blast”

9-10-19 Backblast The Rooster at the Mut
