Thanksgiving Weekend Notes

I'm back at work and in a post-Thanksgiving stupor. The past few days were fun.

Thursday was a busy day. I had made plans to go to Starkville to visit my pla C that evening and TD invited me to have lunch with his family, so I did both. I left Hattiesburg Thursday morning after watering plants and arrived shortly before lunch started. TD's family and friends are great people. I had an excellent time.

After doing some errands at my place, I headed up to Starkvegas. I had a great time visiting with C and his family that night. The next morning, C and I bought cowbells at The Lodge before we walked to the football game.

Yes. Walked to the football game.

The first 50 minutes of the game wasn't fun, but that's why it's a 60-minute game at the collegiate level. We were happy MSU came back to win.

Before I headed back down to Hattiesburg, I was invited to dinner at C's in-laws. Great people. We saw most of LSU's loss to Arkansas. After the game, I headed down to Hattiesburg.

I pretty much slept for most of Saturday. I didn't even try to go to the USM-Arkansas State game. Perhaps I should have, considering that USM is making a change in their head coaching position. I'm not particularly surprised Bower is leaving. I'd heard rumblings to that effect for quite some time, but I thought he'd still be around for at least another 2-3 years.

Anyway, between the cold weather and me being preoccupied with Ole Miss firing Ed Orgeron, I didn't feel like leaving the house. However, I was content with watching (and enjoying the result of) the Clemson-South Carolina game.

And now I'm back at work.
