1. Not A Smashing Success

Welcome to Chip’s Chatter, a blog following my life in Polkerton.

Our story of the week was a tough one to catch – literally!  Yesterday evening, Mrs. Slackwater was sitting on her front porch when she suddenly heard a loud bang.  She rushed around to the back of her house only to find her back porch window smashed to pieces!  How could this have happened?  After a quick inspection she found the real culprit – a baseball!  It was hit over the fence by one of our local minor league players from the Polkerton Yellow Jackets.

While Mrs. Slackwater was not impressed, a compromise was made and the team’s going to put up some netting around the practice field to stop any rogue baseballs in the future.  It’s a shame about Mrs. Slackwater’s window, but our chances at winning this year’s Inter-Town Tournament have never looked better!


Sorry readers, I’m having some formatting issues here.  Knowing how to fix this would be the highlight of my day, but I’ll keep working on it.
