mrs. october steps to the plate

Before I dropped my 93-year-old friend Jessie F., aka Mrs. October, off after Monday's home opener in Philadelphia, I badgered her about making a baseball card for the current mail call. After all, she's been a Phillies fan all her life, her father played professional ball, and she's been to every World Series game since 1964. Not happening, she said, I'm not clever or creative. This afternoon I got back from interviewing an artist in Philadelphia to find this card in the mail. A home run!
