Epicenter of Sports Excitement

 Made a weekend trip to Dallas for my first 5K with Leslie and Karla and while I was there, decided to take in a Cowboys game with a second trip to Jerry World with my best friend, who happened to be there for work. Her husband even came up from San Antonio to join the fun!

As the football game was ending, Game 4 of the World Series was just getting started. Logistically it was a mess, but as we walked the six miles (not really) back to our car, it was neat to be there!

Gradymonster is growing up!

 Grady turned the big 0.25 yr old last week, and these pictures were taken the previous week at a rare but much enjoyed Porch night. Even if I did get my eyeball scratched later in the evening. Dr. Ashley says I am near recovered. I like to make a good first impression on the folks Olivia invited.

Happy Birthday, Bacon!

Happy 19th Birthday to one of my favorite people. I love seeing the person you are growing into and really proud of your acceptance to MTSU for January! I look forward to many more smiles together.

More football this fall! Vandy@Alabama

Ever up for a football game, Jenny and I also traveled to Tide Town in early October for a Vandy road whoopin. Local Vicksburg friend is living in Tuscaloosa for the school year doing coursework toward his PhD at UA and offered us accommodations.
 The beads were festive!
 These pants screamed "TAKE MY PICTURE"
The stadium was REALLY cool and the fans were good sports about the one-sided offensive display we witnessed.

Flashback: 22 miles in 2 days

Jenny and I took vacation in October and decided to make it an active one. We stole a Jeep and went hiking in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This picture I took with my phone, but I am hopeful she will actually share some of the ones she took with her fancy camera. This was after a 12 mile trek to Mt Cammerer. My heart rate monitor says I burned 6000 calories in 7.5 hrs. The blisters on my heels were in agreement.

Mini MTSU reunion

 In town recently for the MTSU homecoming game against Memphis. Two brave Memphis fans joined the fun and we had a  great time and watched a close game. Jenny and I had the opportunity to hang out with Konrad, since he was working security at the game.

The boys from Memphis and I stayed at the Rockin' K and had a chance to visit with Kandy and the boys. Sunrise was beautiful, and I got a guided tour of the goat pasture and participated in the inspection of the nannies that were ready to birth some new kids. None born while we were there.
