Tonight I’m grateful for a quiet night watching baseball.  The Giants played the Arizona Dimondbacks with Trevor Cahill taking starting the game for the Giants.  The bad news is he had to come out of the game in the 4th inning with some discomfort after pitching three good innings.  The good news is, the goodContinue reading “Gratitude Challenge, Day 31 of 100 “Quiet Night Watching the Giants””
