Blue Jays Hype
Two men came to deliver wood chips to the farm run by Vishol in the Caledon area, where land is rolling hills, with a mix of forests and fields embellishing it. Vishol’s farm was the second one for Daivata and I to visit this weekend. Soon to come will be Zebu cows from Texas, who will join the two thoroughbred horses and pony, already there. Apparently, the fine wood chips are to be a temporary covering over the cemented barnyard.
The farm has yielded potatoes which were prepared Vedic-style in a wok and executed in the barn itself. Great meal!
From farm to city, I went. Being that the drive was incredibly lengthy, from Ottawa and back to Toronto, which rapper Drake calls “The Six”, I had little time spared for walking until the evening. I thought Yonge might be a good pick for a street on Sunday, Canada’s Thanksgiving.
As midnight approached, people on the street went berserk. Pedestrians and motorists responded to the local teams’s win—the Blue Jays, in the baseball category. The frenzy was on and all across the country. On Yonge, people were dancing and chanting “José” (Bautista), who played a major role in the team’s victory. It was nice to see everyone happy. People were either present at the game, or watching it on the screen.
I called one of my associates in Vancouver while the game was on and she sounded like she was in a hurry. “You’re busy?” I asked.
“Yes, the game’s on.”
Here’s a joke.
Where is there mention of baseball in the Bible?
Answer: “In the big inning!”
May the Source be with you!
