My Most Valuable Player


Jose` Alberto Pujols, Albert to his friends, Pujols to his fans, is St. Louis Cardinal's MVP. He owns a restaurant in West County where I took my grandson, fourteen year old, Austin, to lunch today. He was thrilled with the hometown hero's memorabilia in display cases. We had a great day at the mall, at lunch, and at the movies.

One day, I am telling you all, this boy is going to be a famous ball player. He is a slugger, named MVP on his team. I am proud of this kid.


Whether you are swatting at baseballs or words; running the bases, or slowly cranking out dialogue; hitting homers or striking out whole paragraphs, be the best that YOU can be and keep your goals in sight.

I agree with Pat. He's a nice-looking young man and looks like a friendly one as well.

Some days, though, I have to bunt...
