I am trying to teach Fido baseball.
Heâs doing pretty well since April, but heâs got a ways to go.
There is no set way to teach a dog baseball. For that matter, thereâs no set way to teach a human, either. Itâs an acquired thing, based on repetition.

Fido says,âHey Hey Hey Hey!â
So we began.
ARE YOU EXPERIENCED?
Itâs a blue sky day.
In Mammoth that means mountains in clear relief against a cobalt sky, lakes and rivers that sparkle and rush.
And itâs Saturday: Day 2 of the Blue Sky Fest, spread out around and adjacent to the grounds of Cerro Coso College.
The newest facet of this festival is the Blue Sky Experience â a cooking competition; seminars on wine and food pairings, complete with demonstrations; 20 wineries pouring exquisite tastings; and a live auction â all wrapped up in music by City Folk, Strunz and Farah, Vance Gilbert and the Tito Puente, Jr. Orchestra.
Christian Fuller has been in town for only a year.
Yet, he has made a lasting impression on many.
Heâs a runner. He has coached young runners and entered races.
He has also introduced chess to people who never had thought of the game before.
He enjoys talking about the similarities between chess and running, and how chess, because it teaches concentration, can improve running.
âIt can also improve oneâs math understanding and performance, as well as reading,â Fuller said.
And, it might be said to improve life skills.

Actors Beau Bridges and his nephew Marcel Lloyd portray two climbers, Harold and Taylor, who are stranded on an icy shelf at 27,000 feet up the world’s second highest mountain.
