In Memory of Robert Weems Barnes, February 19, 1921 – April 18, 2008.
What a good idea, go on-line, find a ticket that fits your needs (if you can) and get it at Will-Call. Now understand, I have made many purchases on-line. I am NOT inexperienced. But this thing defeated me.
I have a post office box. Customer Service told me to enter the box number BEFORE “PO Box.” Huh?
I am not the only one in the nation to have a post office box. Yet the credit card processing application could not handle it and there were no instructions about entering a PO box. Why do other applications on other web sites work?
The customer service office did not open until 8 a.m. But at 8 a.m. the tickets for today’s first game were no longer available because it was within five hours of the game.
The College World Series is great, but the ticket situation is really frustrating.
I’m staying in a Motel 6 for the College World Series, so the kitchen facilities are whatever I brought with me. Of course, this setup was developed for traveling to dog shows. The most important component is the plastic coffee maker that brews into an insulated mug. The second most important is the cooler. This week it holds orange juice, Dr. Pepper and water. For dog shows you would add some Bil-Jac frozen dog food.
I made it in for the Arizona State game! But there were no tickets left for tonight's Southern Mississippi - Texas game. And I kept my promise, I wore my ASU hat, stayed for the entire game and brought home a win for the Sun Devils (in ten innings!)
BTW, there are no divided loyalties here. I will cheer for ASU in their bracket, but once they face the Razorbacks again, all bets are off!

Gang aft a-gley;
And leave us naught but grief and pain
For promised joy.

Plans, schmlans. I was all set to go to Fayetteville for the NCAA Track & Field Championships. Then it started raining, then storming, then raining this morning. And all of that is headed East to Fayetteville. I didn’t really want to sit in a storm or even the rain. I decided to heck with it!
So, I’m headed to Omaha early. That means that I get to see the Razorbacks first game tomorrow.
Go Hogs Go!
OR HOW I GOT VARIABLE SIZED CONTENT:
After doing some research on the subject I found that I could edit my template. I had chosen a pretty plain template (minima black) because I want my blog to match my web site.
I edited the template by going to the blogger dashboard >> Customize >> Layout >> Edit HTML. (Be sure to save your template before you make any changes.)
The “wrapper” variables are what determine the different widths of your blog. I changed the hard-coded widths to percentages instead of pixels, shown as px. Note that I am not showing all code, just the pertinent portions. I had to play around with the percentages until I found a combination that worked for my layout.
Now that I have figured that out, I want to work on creating a layout that has a border around it. But I want the post section to be expandable. All of that will have to wait until after the CWS and the dog show in OKC.
Two German Shorthaired Pointers earned Tracking Dog titles at the GSPCA Trial on May 05. Mayde Crk's Storm Savior RN TD handled by Jeanine Wright is at left and CH Voyager's Windstorm TD handled by Karen Rooks Nauer is pictured on the right. Karen’s dog was the first one to pass on a track that I laid.
There was the St. Patty’s day hat give away and the visit to Baum Stadium of ShaneHawg.
It was exciting to be there as the #1 ranked Razorbacks beat the #1 ranked Sun Devils, with over 11,000 in attendance for the second game.
It was even more fun to go to Norman, Oklahoma and beat the #7 National seed, the Sooners, in their own ball park, while their radio broadcasters pleaded with the OU fans to come support their team. Now I get to go to Omaha to watch the Razorbacks play in their second game of the College World Series. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Go Hogs Go!
Now that blogs are so easy to do, I decided to convert my web site News to a blog. This will allow me to insert images along with news items. I can also create blog items that are not about my dogs. For example, the copyrighted image shown at right is a picture of B.O.B.
