After that, we hopped into our car and drove out to Central Islip to see the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League play a baseball game against the Lancaster Barnstormers. This was in honor of Kathleen David's 50th birthday, for which her husband Peter purchased a suite, complete with plenty of food and drink. Wrenn and I and a cast of several joined them for a delightful celebration, which included a visit from Bud Harrelson, the former Met who co-owns the Ducks, as well as from Quackerjack, the Ducks' mascot.
The party was more fun than the game. The Ducks exploded for five runs in the first, but their bats went silent after that, while the Barnstormers came from behind to eventually win 9-5.
Then we came home, after purchasing a souvenir bat, and watched some TV before I realized something important that was missing from Gryphon Precinct. I've been in the process of fixing that. Now I should really go to bed..............
