Tool Time!

Lately we’ve been coming across a good little bounty of hand tools. Pictured here is a snapshot of our most recent finds which include a mini flowered pattern hammer, a stubby Phillips screwdriver and a handy pair of channel locks. Needless to say, we’ve been filling up the toolbox nicely.

Red Sox Report – Stated by many Yankee players as pivotal, the bombers were looking for a sweep, and, at the very worst, taking 2 of 3 in this circle-the-wagons series between the two longtime A.L. East rivals. Well, my friends chock one up for the Red Sox with a 7-3 win. The score, however, doesn’t indicate just how close this game was, or how the Yankees squandered several opportunities to make this game much closer. You need only look at the bombers cleanup hitter, Alex Rodriguez, to get an idea of the lack of clutch hitting in crucial spots that once again contributed to the Yankees downfall. He could hardly take the complete blame though as Andy Pettitte, once the epitome of the word “Big Game Pitcher”, failed to make it through the fifth, giving up 6 earned runs.

From a Red Sox perspective, this series opener win assures them of winning road trip, and more importantly, inches them a game closer to Rays who lost at home to Roy Halladay and the Blue Jays.

Money Talk – The coin gods were generous to us over the past couple of days. Monday, we snagged a total of 16 cents, followed by a 1.22 effort on Tuesday. There were no interesting coins of note, but, like everyone else, we continue add to our little nest egg.

Over and Out!
