For my big birthday this year I got several books. Mostly related to baseball, and Fenway's 100th birthday. I think Fenway turning 100 made me feel young at 60. One of the books, from my sister Mary in McMinnville, OR, is called "Trading Manny: How a Father and Son Learned to Love Baseball Again" by Jim Gullo, also of McMinnville, about his and his son Joe's love of baseball, the effect of the steroid era on their passion. This fine little book, autographed by both Jim and Joe to Fenway Fran, was taken along for the 5 hour nonstop Alaska Air flight (I love you, Alaska Air). It was so engaging, I read some more before falling asleep last night. Thanks, Mary!
