I hope you were listening this morning at 7:22 when Rob Hakala announced the Brockton Rox player of the day. Sometime this afternoon I’ll ask you to name him. The prize is a family four pack of tickets to the WATD/Brockton Rox Picnic on Thursday, June 30th. Our picnic includes: all you can eat hamburgers, hot dogs, bbq’ed chicken breasts, corn on the cob, potato salad, coleslaw, cookies, brownies and watermelon. You’ll have premium seats on the third baseline for the game, a visit from K-O (The Rox mascot) and free parking at the Shaw’s Center.
I’m in a generous mood today so I’ll also be giving away Cole Brothers Circus of the Stars tickets. Four packs can be used for any of the shows at the Marshfield Fairgrounds or Plymouth Airport. Performances at the Fairgrounds are on Monday and Tuesday, June 20th and 21st and at the Plymouth Airport on Wednesday and Thursday, June 22nd and 23rd. Showtimes are at 4:30 or 7:30pm.
The year is 1961 and a musician living in Battle Creek, Michigan is trying to get his big break. Once again, a local DJ rides to the rescue. Will he ever be able to quit his day job? Listen in at 5:30pm to see.
It’s amazing how far I’ll go to get what I want. Lately, I’ve been on a garden gnome kick. (Don’t ask why because I don’t have a clue). Anyhoo, I see an adorable lady gnome standing in front of a cute as a button gnome home at my local garden center and I HAVE to buy it. BUT…where’s the man gnome I ask. The sales lady tells me she can’t find him. She’s looked everywhere and he’s not in the store or out amongst the plants. Will any more be coming in I ask in my best whining voice. She goes to check and comes back to say there are some still waiting to be unpacked and she’ll call me when they’re put out. I buy the gnome home and lady gnome and wait for the call to come. YES! They’re unwrapped BUT…BUT? NO! NO BUTS! WHAT? These gnomes are slightly different than the one I want. I will not be denied. Can you order the one I need? Lady gnome can’t be alone. She needs the hubby gnome sitting in a chair smoking a pipe to complete the set. Yeah but it’s going to cost more to ship it than the actual price of the gnome. Order on woman! Price be damned! I’m not settling for a gnome home and a lady gnome with no mate. I made that mistake years ago with my three foot Mrs Bunny. (I left her hubby, Mr Bunny, at the garden center thinking I’d come back for him. When I did he was gone). I still haven’t gotten over it.
