Election Day Musings
This is about the 3rd time that I've started to blog since we lost CoCo. It hit us that hard. But I need to do this.
DKW and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary on October 31st. We took a little trip and spent a couple of nights in Natchez. We stayed at the Blufftop Bed and Breakfast - where we went on our honeymoon. Its a very nice place and very restful. It overlooks the Mississippi River and a ways into Louisiana. I can't recommend it enough.
Speaking of places I can't recommend enough. As we meandered back home we came across a little restaurant located in an old brick train station in Flora, MS (outside Jackson). I can say without reservation that I had the absolute best burger I've had in over 20 years. The Blue Rooster is the best place you've never heard of. They hand-make every 8 ounce patty from fresh mississippi beef and it is cooked to order! When is the last time you had a great medium rare burger. The next time I'm in the Jackson area - I plan of making this a stop. You should too.
MSU has now suffered two beatdowns in a row and are 7-2 on the year. As much as I want to be optomistic - I'm afraid a 3rd beatdown is on the horizon as we travel to LSU this weekend. C'mon Dawgs! Time to bow up!!!
SHS finished their regular season with a victory over Neshoba Central 21-10. They have gone undefeated in Region 2-5A for the second year in a row (7-0). Their over all record is 8-3. The playoffs start on Friday, (Nov. 9th) with Starkville hosting Region 1-5A's #4 seed Saltillo High. The Tigers are 7-4 on the year and 4-3 in Region 1. (Their 3 losses all to the 3 higher seeds). Should be a very close game.
Everyone have a great day!
