Well - this past Saturday DKW and I had a great day together. Some of the activites included going to MSU's (exhibition) basketball win against the Lindsey Wilson College (KY) Blue Raiders by a score of 75-66. Going to the library, the Longview (MS) Opry and doing our grocery shopping. On Friday, the SHS Yellowjackets lost to Columbus HS 32 to 30, and thus ended their season as they failed to make the playoffs. MSU football had a bye week this week, but have the unenviable task of playing Alabama, who lost this past weekend at LSU by a score of 24-21. The bright spot (football-wise) of the weekend for me was my Oakland Raiders winning in overtime against the Kansas City Chiefs, 23-20. They are now 5-4 on the year and have a bye week this coming weekend. They are 1/2 game behind the 5-3 KC Chiefs. However, they are currently undefeated within their (AFC West) conference. Do I dare dream that they might make the playoffs?I purchased some paperbacks (50 cents/each) while I was at the library. One, The Midwich Cuckoos, (written by John Wyndham) was published in the late 50's. I didn't recall ever hearing of it, but this author had written the book, The Day of the Triffids, which was made into an early 60's sci fi movie and I had enjoyed it. The book has definitely held my attention and I would recommend it to sci fi fans. (As I was typing this I looked up the title - turns out this book was the basis of the movie "Village of the Damned". WOW! Freaky movie if you've never seen it.
Well, I've got to get back to work. Everyone have a great day!
