necrotic. And yes, it was just as painful as it sounds. I took off work that day and Wednesday, and if we hadn't been short handed at work, I think I would have taken off yesterday too. But its better now, and after the first of the year my regular dentist will be putting a new crown on the tooth. The tooth that was worked on is still sensitive to pressure and may be so for 4 or 5 days following the surgery, but that I can easily deal with.
SHS opens Region play tonight against Lanier High down in Jackson. SHS is heavily favored since Lanier is 0-4 and has been outscored 156-18 through 4 games. MSU plays at home tomorrow night against the University of South Alabama (out of Mobile). State is favored by 34 and I think it should probably be more. This is only the 4th year that the S. Ala. football team has even existed. So, about 9:30 tomorrow night state should be 4-0 going into a bye-week. After the bye, they will be on the road to Lexington (on Oct. 6th) to meet the U.K. Wildcats.
After a loss to Miami and an 0-2 start the Raiders are back home in the "Black Hole" but it doesn't get any easier with Big Ben and the Pittsburg Steelers coming to town.
The weather here has been quite pleasant and the current 10 day forecast (thru the 30th) shows no rain, highs in the middle 80's and lows in the low 60's or high 50's. Nice! Starting to use the AC less, especially after sunset, when the temps drop below 75. Autumn is near! Love it. Might even be able to contemplate putting my mower up for the year come November.
Everyone have a great day!
