Bill and I took the day off today. I have quite a few long days in the near future and Bill is just starting up a new Spring Hockey team. It seemed like a good idea since the next day off will be.... well, I don't know when. We went to a Tiger Baseball game today. It is always fun and today was no different. We won. Big. The score was 9-0 and for an added bonus - whenever the Tigers score 9 runs or more at home - you get a free pizza. A baseball game and a free dinner. Yeah! Here is some of what you see when you go to Comerica Park. This is some of the great architecture there. It is sort of a combination of the great old styles of Detroit's more illustrious periods mixed in with baseball, whimsy, and pure fantasy. There are many huge tigers that prowl all around the park. The main entrance is framed by HUGE baseball bats. My favorite architectural details are the Pewabic pottery tiles that pop up everywhere. Pewabic Pottery is a National Historical Arts and Crafts studio that still makes pottery and tiles today. Everywhere you look there is something marvelous.Once inside and sitting at our seats (first row, upper deck behind first base) this is what you see - a gigantic scoreboard.I won't go on (and on) about the game, but I assure you it was swell. Despite the weather being overcast, cold and windy, we stayed dry and had a relaxing time. We did dress for it. We looked like the Michelin couple. Even more than we usually do. Taking a little stroll around the park - here are just a few more of the wonders.
A carousel that is everything Tiger. There is a Ferris wheel too, but I didn't get over to that today. Lady Liberty even took time to catch the game today.Everybody needs to play hooky once in awhile.
I heard from Dallas today (Moda Headquarters) that we could expect our new fabric line as early as this weekend. Once here, I will be knee deep in fabric and thread until all of our new creations are finished. For the next few weeks it only be baseball on t.v. and not in person. Today was a nice treat.
