Random Rumblings

SSW - Halloween 2013
First, Football.  In what had to be one of the most amazing and controversial finishes to a game that I have ever been in attendance at, Starkville High defeated Madison Central 45-42.  I'm attaching a couple of links so that you can read about it yourself.  Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, on both sidelines were shaking their heads at this one.  Now if they take care of business in their last 3 games (which they will be favored in), they will be the number one seed in our region and host a first round playoff game on Nov. 15th.
MSU plays UK tonight (on ESPN) and is favored by 10.
Now I know my proud Grandpa slip is showing, but just look at my latest grandchild up dere ^ (born 9/13/13).  Ain't she a Cutie?  All dressed up for Halloween.
On Monday (Oct. 21st) DKW and I were watching "Bones" as Brennan and Booth finally tied the knot.  We couldn't help looking at each other, smiling, and saying, "We used it first!" as Temperance marched down the aisle to the song "At Last", sung in the show by Cindy Lauper.  At our own wedding (Oct. 31, 2009), we used the original version done by the phenomenal, Etta James.  Regardless, the song is special to us and yes, next week we celebrate our 4th anniversary.  We do have plans!
Everyone Have a Great Day!

Yard Mowing season nearly over!

Recliner Ready!
First game kicks off at noon!
I've been busy with projects at work the last couple of weeks, but decided I needed to make time to publish an entry.

On the football front, big game tonight for SHS.  They are hosting Madison Central in a game that will, in all likelihood, decide first & second place in Region 2-6A.   Both teams are 5-2 (3-0 in Region 2).  MC is slightly favored (2 pts.) in what is basically a pick-em game.  C'mon Jackets! Time to Bow Up!

MSU has a bye this week and quite frankly, has had a disappointing season thus far.  They are 3-3 overall and mathematically (with 6 games left) can become bowl eligible.  Last week was homecoming and while we did win, it was nothing to write home about.  MSU barely eeked out a 21-20 victory against Bowling Green and was (except for one play) very unimpressive doing it.  With the six remaining games against teams that are, or were,  ranked this year I would not be too surprised if we don't win another in 2013.  I'll be unhappy - but not surprised.  I will, however, continue to support my team.  Its what a true "fan" does.  Go DOGS!

My Raiders, (sigggghhhhhh) 2-4 and in last place in the AFC West.  'Nough said.

The temp is getting cooler and the grass is growing slower.  I'm planning on mowing next weekend (for the first time in 4 weeks) and I thinking that it might (fingers crossed) be the last time this year.  This will leave my weekends free for other projects, for which I seem to always have something going on.  Whether a necessary or pleasure project is the question.  But DKW will tell you that I feel a little lost when I don't feel like I've accomplished something over the weekend.

Everyone have a great day!

Back to Work

Me & Savannah 9-26-2013
It's been a little over a couple of weeks since my last entry, but I have a good excuse.  Me and DKW went to Florida for a week to visit the little cutie that you see me holding.  Savannah Sue is all that and more.  With a name like that, can Savvy Sue be anything but a "Southern Belle".  We stayed visiting Savannah (ok - and her 'rents) for a week.  This week I was back to work, and I won't lie - its been a very trying week.  Not only did I have my routine stuff to catch up, I had end of month and beginning of month things to do.  I finally catching my breath, but a little bit will carry over to next week.  It will be easier though.
Since my last entry, MSU defeated Troy 62-7, but it gets a lot tougher this weekend with SEC foe LSU coming to town and angry (following a tough loss to Georgia).  The current line is LSU by 10.
SHS defeated Columbus 35-13, to go 3-2 on the year thus far.  The Yellowjackets play Northwest Rankin High (1-4)tonight.  Its SHS's homecoming and they are favored.  So, barring a total collapse, we should be 4-2 once the night is over. (And 2-0 in our region. Columbus & NW Rankin both in our region.)  Fingers crossed! Go Jackets!
With all the disruptions to my schedule, I got away from my writing a bit, but I am making a concerted effort to get back to it.  I've gone as far as to schedule time during the day just for writing.  I hope it works.
Everyone Have a Great Day!
