Hi, I am Fred! Born today, hope to be here tomorrow...probably will be gone by Spring. I was made with love and fun by Blaise and Daddy.

Baseball for Benedict

A few blogs back I spoke of the pocket watch that would some day go to Blaise. I foreshadowed a mention of another heirloom that would go to Benedict. It is a signed baseball from Mickey Mantle. Tony's stepdad John gave it to him when he was roughly 9 or 10. As I mentioned before, when you get something special and you come from a large family with many brothers and sisters...well that trinket becomes a treasure. Tony has held onto this baseball and has mentioned it would someday go to one of his children. It is not so much about the monetary value of the baseball, but that his stepdad took the time to give it just to him.


My little gym stars really embraced their first time at gymnastics. Tony took the photos and they speak for themselves.
