Mitzvah moments -- and a Sox game!

Received: My wife got a pair of Red Sox tickets as an end-of-year class gift -- and shared them with me!

Given: Helped sort and deliver food for Family Table; donated school supplies to Housing Inc.'s annual backpack drive.

Planned: Hope to raise funds for the 2009 Jimmy Fund Walk (virtually, since we plan to be at Family Table the actual day of the walk).

As for the Sox game, it was fun, particularly the five-run inning where the Sox rapped out hit after hit. The only lowlight: leaving the game 6-3, spending an hour getting back to where we'd parked the car, and turning on the radio to find the A's had just tied the game, 7-7, on the way to a 9-8 loss.
