Happy 24th Birthday Kershaw and I dedicate the post to my dad.

Clayton Kershaw turns 24 today!  Happy birthday Kershaw!

Here is Kershaw with Sandy Koufax this year.  I had already posted this picture but I can look at it every day!   Picture from Jon SooHoo.  Take a look at his blog with his terrific Dodger pictures at http://dodgersphotog.mlblogs.com/   Jon came in at #12 in the February MLB Blog Pro blog but Giant photographer blog came in at #2 so keep going to Jon’s blog on a daily basis and give him credit if you post his pictures.  image

Today is also Father’s day in Honduras so I dedicate this post to my papito Pedro.   He passed away in 2005 on June 29th, a day after my birthday.   Miss you dad!  Wish I would have spent more time with you.  Still remember that day as a 13 year old kid leaving Honduras and crying like a baby when I had to say goodbye to you.    Happy times when I went back to Honduras to see you even when you were sick.

portrait of mom and dad.  Mom died when I was two, sad I don’t remember her.

I dedicate this song to you papi.  “Ese que me dio vida”  “That one that gave me life”  de Alejandro Saenz.

Here are some lyrics:

Con tu sonrisa de medio lao cuántos te quiero te habras callao.
Con tu eterno cigarrillo Con tu ojera y tu descuido La más bella de las danzas Es tu cojera al caminar….

How many “I love you” you must have quiet down…..With your eternal cigarette, with your dark eye shadows and your carelessness The most beautiful dance is your limp as you walk…

Happy Father’s Day to all that celebrate today and happy birthday to my cousin Mina.

Note:  I found my phone.  the poor thing slept the night under the car rental at the hotel in Arizona.  Good thing it was the night before it rained.   Forgot my camera between New Hampshire airport, taxi and hotel.  Was found at airport so need to make a trip there to pick it up.   When I described  the bag (a little Victoria Secret bag) the guy said “Oh yeah, we have it”   Crazy trip from CA to AZ for Spring Training games with friends Lorena & Elisa, then flight delayed in Phoenix.  80 of us were making connection flights in Philadelphia.   Guy next to me was going to Manchester, England and I to Manchester, NH.  The other lady was on her way to Israel.    Fun times in AZ and now working here in NH this week.

No sabia que hablas Espanol. Yes, in various countries, Father’s day is 3/19. It is because is St Joseph’s day. Now, Mother’s day is always the same except in Mexico is 5/10.
