 We saw on facebook that Sally and Jerry were doing an east coast trip and were at Hershey TT when we went to Branson. I was so glad they were still there when we returned and we got together for pickleball, lunch, and catching up. We met them in Palm Springs when we first started traveling, and we were able to visit them at their home in Washington when we went to Alaska, but missed them this year when we were west. It sure was nice seeing them.
 On September 19 we celebrated Bob's birthday at Shady Maple Smorgasbord ( it is free on your birthday, but worth a stop any time you are near) Happy Birthday Bob!
 On Sunday afternoon we went to Lancaster's Clipper stadium to see the Barnstormers play.
 We took Shannon and Mark to celebrate his birthday. We had front row seats.
 The Barnstormers won 9-0. Now to the playoffs.
 Wednesday night we went to the first game of the playoffs.
 The Barnstormer's mascot Cleo. We had a group of college guys behind us that must have been a part of a cheering group. They made the game fun. It was a good game and Barnstormers won by 2 runs.
 I had seen this program advertised on the TV. It was at the Giant Center in Hershey and the tickets were free. So Thursday night I went on line and got us two tickets. All tickets were general admission. The place was packed. Lots of students.
 We had great seats, at the back by the  U.S. Army Orchestra.
 A great opening.
 The U.S. Army Ceremonial Band.

 What an amazing performance, using bayonet-tipped rifles. Hours of practice, training and team work!
 I enjoyed the Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps performance.
 It was over a two hour program that traced the history of the Army from the Revolution to present day. It was an excellent show and glad we went.
