Back at the Coliseum for my A’s and some root beer floats

On Tuesday I made it back to the Coliseum for the first time in over three seasons. And it was Root Beer Float Day! I hadn’t been to one since 2011 when Mark Ellis was traded.

But it was so fun to be back. Free parking. A great catch up with some friends and look! Dave Kaval and Ken Korach took photos with me!

Additionally, I just enjoyed hearing the sounds of the game, walking through the park, seeing the field I grew up loving. It was special. I missed all of it. I want to go back!

The Coliseum is old but it still has a fun feel to it. I love you, Oakland!

Chester Bennington’s suicide brings back some Linkin Park memories

First and foremost, suicide is real and depression is real. I have had a friend die from this. I also know what the news has told us about suicide among celebrities too.

Sometimes there are signs. Sometimes there aren’t. It sucks. But it’s a continuing thing here.

Chester was a great voice and mind for this band I enjoyed immensely during my teenage years. I still have my Linkin Park CDs. But just wrapping my head around this news is sad. I didn’t know what he was going through. This is a shock.

I wish it didn’t happen. I hope people understand and seek help or help others as well. I don’t want suicides like this to continue for anyone.

Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade was everything

Oh the memories from today!

It was 25 years ago or so I saw this parade for the first time and even though it’s a short return, I was so happy to have seen it again. I am so happy!

Everything was the same as I remember it! I am so happy!
