Well no one ever accused Campbellsville of being fast paced like New York City. Being back has been a big change. You don't really see how much the economy has been affected in small town USA until you are here. I am working, but only odd jobs. The company that I got offered a job with has a hiring freeze in place until further notice.
Luckily, I have been able to do small odd jobs here and there. I have spent alot of time at the doctors office that my mom works at. It's a small, private practice eye doctor's office, and the doctor is only in twice a week, because he has other offices in surrounding counties that he visits. But he is the biggest pack-rat I have ever met. He has five rooms filled with old junk that needs to be tossed or sold. I counted 23 old computers that don't work that he refused to toss. And old equipment that is out of date and can't be used. So he has brought me in to move it into the attic. I keep thinking of the scene in What's Eating Gilbert Grape? where the mom (who is in excess of 350 pounds easily) dies in the upstairs of the family home. The family can't carry her downstairs, so they burn down the home. I feel like that is what will happen to this doctor's office when he passes, because there is so much junk in the attic now. And he owns an unused office next door that is filled with junk also. But instead of cleaning it and renting it out, it just houses junk. Pretty pointless, but organizing the junk has given me work.
And a little update to my last post. Last Friday the Hilltoppers baseball team won in a shutout, and Matt pitched six dominant shutout innings. There was supposed to be a doubleheader Saturday and another game on Sunday, but they were all cancelled because of rain/snow. So that only gave us one game before we went to Vanderbilt to play. For those who don't know college baseball, Vanderbilt is kind of like USC in football or North Carolina in basketball. They constantly pump out top players and live at the top of the rankings. We got down 7-1, but came back, only to fall short 10-7. Tough loss, but a good game for the guys. What was good to see was my buddy Chad Adcock pitch great. Chad was the first player that I met when I came on with the team. He tried out as a walk-on shortstop. While turning double plays during tryouts, he was throwing sidearm, and the coaches saw it and sent him to the bullpen to pitch. He had never pitched sidearm, but they kept him on as a project player. So my first day on the job, I was fixing the mounds, and they made him help. He didn't think they would even keep him around, but he is now a senior and has played off and on. He joined the Bible study and is maybe the most liked guy on the team. He had a rough year last year, but really got after it in the summer and fall. So the coaches brought him in to pitch, and he shut down Vandy. He threw 1 2/3 innings and struck out a few guys without giving up any runs. Against a team like Vandy, that's a very big deal.
And yesterday, our guys played a doubleheader against Albany, a team that beat us in a home series two years back. Matt pitched the first game and threw six more dominant shutout innings and we won 11-0 in 6 innings. In college baseball, there is a ten run rule after six innings during a doubleheader or Sunday game, so it only went six innings. The second game was total domination, and we won 23-2 in six innings. We played alot of freshman, and the two runs were given up off a backend pitcher who wont see much action this year. So the season has started off well. More updates to follow. Have a blessed day.
