As I mentioned in my “This is 40” post there were other things that happened on the day of my birthday. One of those things was the announcement of the North Scranton 9-10 year old All-Stars, and my son made the team. Last year during a fantastic Pony League season we went to a few All-Star games and at that point he decided that the next year (his first eligible year) he wanted to be an all-star, so that was the goal since before this season began. As a kid I didn’t excel in sports, I enjoyed them but I hated practicing. My son isn’t like that at all thankfully and he spent the winter months in camps at The Sandlot to help improve his game and keep practicing because he loved playing.
Yesterday I finally received my Apple Watch. The Apple Watch went on sale on April 24th of this year but at the time I wasn’t able to purchase one. Lucky for me June 13th was my birthday and I was celebrating a “milestone” birthday of the forty kind so I hinted for an Apple Watch. On June 13th I got… a piece of paper with a picture of an Apple Watch and the promise that a few days later it would arrive.
