A Big Little Thing


Mitzvah. A good deed. A kind or meritorious act.
Brews Your Daddy SC made commemorative bracelets to honor my youngest nephew, Andy. We lost him after Christmas this year and the world hasn't been the same.
Here's what they wrote on their Facebook page:

Andy was an intricate part of our undefeated title run in the leagues opening season, and the leagues first Golden Glove winner. As many of you know, Andy was taken from us too soon, we remember him every time we take the pitch and every time a shot seems to curve off target in our favor. In honor and remembrance of Andy, BYD SC will be sporting the below bracelets this season. We remind you to cherish the time you have with your friends, be there for them and love them. We miss you Andy.

  1. Aww so sorry.

    I got heat exhaustion at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon but I do live in the Deep South. Not real fond of the high humidity most of the tine-yes even in so called "winter."
