We went to the Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore game on Saturday. It was an early game (3:55 start time) and I thought I was doing good by getting us there an hour early. Since I had never been to the Tropicana Field I had no idea. If I ever go to another game there I know to get there much earlier.
Here is Anna trying Dippin Dots for the first time.
This is showing the field. We were actually pretty close but had to turn our heads left to see the action. I know next time (remember, if I go to another game) to get seats so that you can look straight on.
And looking back at the stadium as we were leaving.
We have to drive across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge to get home. This is a very tall bridge. It is designed so that a ship can pass underneath to get into Tampa Bay. I swear if I ever see a ship getting ready to go through..I will not drive over it.

Well, that was our Saturday. Went out yesterday (Sunday) looking for an electronic Swedish to English Translator. They have just about every other language but not Swedish. I did find one on the Internet today that I think she is going to get.
Then yesterday evening I installed a new thermostat so that I can set the schedule for the air conditioning. Got a little worried and was just about ready to call an electrician because I could not get the thing to power on. I checked everything and even went and asked the guy across the street. But luckily I was on the phone with the gal about the coins (see link to the right) and she suggested I check out the fuse located in the unit. Sure enough! I took off the front panel on the unit in the garage and there it was, a blown fuse. Back to Lowes...Nope, they did not have what I needed. Off I go to Walmart. I had to get a whole kit to get the one I wanted but it saved me a bundle. I finally got the air conditioner running. That would have been hard to sleep with no air conditioner going. Then today I finally replaced the burners on my gas grill. It took them from April until August to get the replacements sent to me. So I guess I got my honey do list done for the weekend.
