True Blue/#AtoZChallenge

During the month of April, I’m participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge for my 4th year in a row – 3 of which are on this blog. Each day, except Sundays, there will be a post for the letter of the day as well as keeping with my personal theme of Quilts and Quotes. Feel free to leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you! Also check out the other A to Z’ers in the comment section of the Official A to Z Blog Page.

This is inevitable. There are Royals fans in the house. Fans from the beginning. I used to thumb-tac baseball cards to my paneled walls back in my teen years. I probably committed sacrilege unknowingly at the time. But to this girl, it was better than a Teen Magazine poster. Who needed Leif Garrett or Shawn Cassidy? I had George Brett, Amos Otis, Willie Wilson, Frank White, Dan Quisenberry and many more. Can you say plastered on a wall?? That was me.

Not a tomboy. Just a girl who couldn’t play ball due to bad knees. So I did the next best thing — cheer on my Boys in Blue.

Enter the era of my daughters. Ball became a huge part of their upbringing with games each and every summer until they outgrew the Girls Softball League. Now we attend the games and wear our gear and decorate the home to show our pride.


We want to extend our deepest sympathies to each and every one feeling loss this season of Β ‘The Ace’. Some moments above captured on Memorial Day the year before our Big Win.

This True Blue quilt block was in the book.


The author has my appreciation for providing the best name ever in a quilt block!

Pardon my level of maturity. I really am a huge fan. Ask my sister. πŸ˜‰ There are a few witnesses to say the least.



Tony Muser: “There are 50 games a year when you beat the crap out of them, and there’s 50 games a year when they beat the crap out of you. The rest are swing games. You’ve got to win these games if you are going to win.”

And one more for good measure:

Charlie Lau: “There are two theories on hitting the knuckleball. Unfortunately, neither of them works.”

Join me again tomorrow for more of the April A to Z Blog Challenge 2017!



  1. Now you’re talking “R.” “George Brett, Amos Otis, Willie Wilson, Frank White, Dan Quisenberry and many more” brought a huge smile to my face. There is no way I could count the number of times our family sat in the stands at the Stadium cheering those guys on. Did someone say tar for “T”? πŸ™‚
