Lancaster Wins It All

This happened last night. And I was there! So, too, apparently, was Charlie Brown, who went home to his sister Sally, very happy and excited. I was In Lancaster last week for games 1 and 2 of the division series against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. Lancaster lost game 1, though they made a furiousContinue reading “Lancaster Wins It All”

Life in Pennsyltucky, An Occasional Series

Seriously, though, it wasn’t Joe Biden who stole top secret nuclear secrets and kept them in bankers boxes atContinue reading “Life in Pennsyltucky, An Occasional Series”
