    YlBl Ball has left Rochester ...

    So on it's way over to the Post Office I spied a few photo ops for Ball.

    College Bookstore




    This is Frank, one tuff bicycle cop. Frank got to do what I've always wanted to do - ride up the escalator.



    And since I happened to be there .... had to get a cookie



    Has anyone see my Ball???? (BTW security guards looked at me like I was nuts ...)




    My favorite ice cream place, Abbotts.







    Ball is on it's way to Georgia!

    Hm. You're right. YlBl is round. You know, I thought that other one that was here in CLT was a bit, uh, "misshapen," but didn't want to say anything. Guess that's the one with the goiter?

    it got all stretched out when Jessica Alba and Salma Hayek were fighting over it. Hurt a bit, but pleasure and pain is nice. I hate waking up.

    actually it's blue --- looks kinda green though in the picture with Frank the bicycle cop. Maybe that was Ball's reaction to be in the hands of the law

    whatcha going to do with Ball?

    phooie

    i was hoping for green.

    see...i've got this ink...and it's a bright green...there's a little blue on it...some red...a little orange.

    i thought i'd bare the froggie for the ballie. i'll even let mv snap a picture of it.

    I think I had an encouter with YlBl today! A customer asked if I would take a picture with it so I did. Needless to say, I'm ridiculously confused but very curious.
