And in no time we'll be big time with the big league baseball stars

My July trip to see bunny_hugger began abnormally, with mass transit. Normally my parents drive me to the airport, but my mother had a doctor's appointment at just the time to make driving me impossible. But the appointment was in New Brunswick, and I could take the train in to Newark Airport from there and what do you know but that's an awfully convenient way to get up there. I may go that way in the future; it's near my brother and his wife's house.

After this, we continued walking, taking in the warm evening sky and noting the restaurant where we planned to eat with bunny_hugger's parents Monday. And at that point it was near enough to bunny_hugger's home that we kept on walking, into the humid night, and our proper time together.

Trivia: A Decatur Daily Review article of 1916 credits the 1866 introduction of (New York City rules) baseball to Decatur, Illinois, to the returning home for a vacation of W C Johns, a student who had been at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
