Made it back safely from my trip up to Jersey Shore, PA to pick up my "new" bike. Actually was a very nice trip. The weather cooperated and it wasn't too cold in the mornings. (It actually go pretty warm in the afternoons. The fall foliage in the northern part of my trip was absolutely gorgeous - as was the scenery. Although most of the trip (mileage wise) took place in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Tennessee, I actually travelled through 9 states in the 2 days I was cycling. I left J.S.,PA, on Thursday morning (10/21) and from there crossed just a smidge of Delaware, followed by larger (but still) smidges of Maryland and West Virginia. Then the longer trek through Virginia and about 50 miles into Tennessee - which ended my first day of travel. I was pooped!!! After a needed nights rest, I left early Friday morning (10/22) and from TN, crossed a smidge of Georgia, into Alabama and finally home in Mississippi. WHEW! Am I glad I'm home.
Football this weekend was a bit of a mixed bag for me. Friday night, my SHS Yellowjackets lost of the very last play of the game. A 52 yard "Hail Mary" pass which let Olive Branch High slip by us 40-34. Saturday - mmmm! -- well the good news is MSU won their homecoming game 29-24 and are now "bowl eligible" at 6-2. The bad news is they looked absolutely horrible doing it. Hope they get all their difficulties straightened out before Kentucky comes to town on Halloween Eve. Ahhhh! Sunday - Sunday! The Raiders salvaged the weekend. Not only did they win against hated rival Denver. They BEAT THEM LIKE A DRUM! 59-14! The most points scored by an Oakland Raiders team in one game, EVER! I know they still have a long way to go to be contenders,but maybe there is hope!
Everyone have a great day!
