Tidbits of 2009 US Open


Here is Rog pulling his truck load of trophies .. if you haven’t seen that commercial enough times on TV..

Going to the Open with Pumpkin has it pro and con. With obstruction (fm her) of my endeavor – I missed many photo ops .. women in Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik & Christian Louboutin .. pregnant women in heels .. dogs .. Rog .. If I were going alone, I would have had a field day, taking as many pictures as my little heart desire/content.

Nay, I’d rather go with Pumpkin ..
Mothers ..


Lou has a thing with kid. He offered to take picture of Pumpkin and I. I was expecting a rejection from her. But surprisingly she agreed, and put on a charming smile.
Must be my lucky day.
Actually we got lucky with the night session: it began on the dot, which I thought was rare. Perhaps for the first time, the Open put men’s singles before the ladies. (Well, Roger has a pair of newborn .. needed to be home by a reasonable bedtime ..) In the past, it’s always ladies first. Tonight’s game featuring Maria Sharapova vs Christina McHale, the 17 years old from New Jersey did not start till 8:45pm. And Andy Roddick (vs Marc Gicquel) still waiting.
Tough love.

Sailors ..
.. and here comes the candy ..
We did little grocery shopping prior. Pumpkin dumped a small bag of colorful candy in the cart. In the car, she was studying the bag, and giddy.
“Get hold of yourself young lady.”
She laughed.
“Is this what happened when I’m not around .. eating candy and chips till your face turned blue?”
“Yes, mother dear.”
I laughed.
We found our seats and began to watch .. she took out the candy and ate in large cluster.
“Would you like some?” I took out the grapes.
How passé.
Why did I do that for?
“Let me see the bag.” I teased.
“Mom, pls .. let me enjoy it in peace.”
ha ha ha …
Thank lord my kids don’t know the phone number of Social Services Agency
