Wednesday Word—RE2PECT


(Note: If you’re not a sports’ fan, you may want to skip to the Foto Frenzy at the bottom of this post although you don’t need to be a fan to appreciate what this man has accomplished. I did try to inject humor into it.)

How ginormous? This ginormous! It’s 36” tall!
Even if you’re not from the NY area, you’d have to be living under a rock not to have heard or seen the word RE2PECT over these past few months. You all know that CK has class. You also know that I’m a Yankee fan so I have to say a few words about someone else with class and that would be Yankee Captain Derek Jeter Harris. Jeter played his last MLB game last Sunday after 20 years in the majors. All of those years were spent with one team—my New York Yankees. The peeps couldn’t go to his last game in da Bronx but they went to his penultimate game last Wednesday to cheer for a man who played the game the right way. Unfortunately, the game didn’t end to their liking and a ginormous adult beverage was consumed—mostly by TW.

I wouldn’t be keeping it real if I didn’t show my RE2PECT for Mr. Jeter. Before I began blogging, the peeps had half season (41 games) tickets to the NY Yankees and got to see much of Jeter’s Hall of Fame career play out at the old Cathedral in da Bronx. They were always awed by the plays he made in the field and his offensive heroics through the years. Some have questioned why Jeter got such a grand sendoff since he was never the greatest overall player or even the best player at his position—shortstop. What he did have was respect for the game. He never showed up the opposing team, never took Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) and never took the game for granted. Until the end, he hustled out every ground ball; he played hard and clean. Add to that fact that he never made headlines for off-the-field antics even though he was a bachelor playing in NY. You’ll probably never see a player bust it like he busted it for 20 years although Mike Trout of the Angels seems to be following in Jeet’s footsteps. Best of luck to Mr. Jeter in his future endeavors.

TW took this photo of Jeet batting during the 2009 ALCS.

My next endeavor is to post this Foto Frenzy requested by the very classy and well-respected Ms. Layla of Cat Wisdom 101. She picked Number Nine … number nine … number nine … This is one of my first fotos in my new home. I was about seven months to a year old. It was taken with TW’s analog Olympus camera before she ever had a digital camera. She says it’s grainy cos she was using 800 ASA (speed) film so she wouldn’t need a flash. I’ll bet she was also using the mackerel lens. Even without color correction, I am certainly cute (read: stunning) in the grainy foto.

#9. This could almost be a selfie but I didn’t take it.

The ever classy and debonair Brian of Brian’s Home chose Foto #1202. As you can see, I’m not too happy about my nap being innerupted by the flashy box. I guess TW liked the pose I was napping in. I certainly didn’t like the intrusion. BTW, Brian’s sister Zoe can use some healing purrz.

#1202. Whatchoo want Woman?

We have a winner! Concats to Vicky C.. She won the Custom Body Pillow half pillow. They’ve already contacted her about getting her pillow. I hope she’ll post a photo on the Stunning Keisha FB page when it arrives.

  17. Congratulations to your baseball player. Our daughter & SIL house a player every year at their home for the season - he's a Timber Rattler (minor League of the Brewers). We have learned so much more about the game by talking to him. They have a very hectic schedule and not much free time during the season. Love your pictures CK, you always look like the star that you are.

  20. This is great Keisha. He is one of the greatest of all-time; as a player and a professional. I was lucky enough to be at the game and it was an amazing experience. #Re2pect
