Ace pitcher, Hunter the Heat, led his team to a win of the Iowa 'A' Classic National Invitational Tournament on Sunday, June 5. In the middle of the day, Hunter's main fans were called home~~it was load-the-truck day for moving and Al and Dave were hoping to take in a game or two. It was not to be. A pipe burst in an upstairs bathroom and the ceiling below was wet and falling...a shock, to say the least.
Amy and I, who were at home preparing the load, were frantic for help.
Meanwhile, Hunter kept on striking the boys out and his coaches were excited. Updates were sent to the Underwood ranch where everyone was grinding through the trauma of loading a truck and dealing with insurance and plumbers and a huge, wet, stinky, gaping hole in the living room ceiling.
Later in the afternoon I heard an enormous shout in the yard and flew to the window to see what was up (another accident?) No, not an accident!!! A wondrous event...
Championship trophy in hand, a grinning Hunter was standing at the back of the moving truck with his proud, proud coach, excitedly discussing the twists and turns of the day.
A huge lift for the crew!!!
We'll drink to that!!! "Hear, hear," we lifted our glasses to our 10-year-old hero.
