Jon's question is pertinent. No walk again last night, although given how thoroughly our differing (but not incompatible) hopes of enjoying watching the Caps eliminate the Penguins and the Phillies trounce the Manny-less Dodgers were dashed last night, a walk might have been a better choice. But true fans could not have chosen otherwise. I like this garden flag, as it reminds me of the iris in my own yard that we imcompetently failed to photograph this year.
