I suppose in the archaic history of Texas collegiate football, the last thing I should be saying is "Gig 'Em", as I bleed purple and not maroon, but seeing the Aggies in action is truly a cultural experience. The band performances are AMAZING - and I am so not a band geek. But I promise you, seeing this in person on an extraordinarily beautiful Thanksgiving night, with the flashbulbs popping, would bring a lump into the throat of anyone, save the most hardened t.u. fan. Loved every minute of it. Bick's cousin is a pretty high roller in this town and I was sitting on the 48 yard line. I've never had such good seats to any football game, ever! Amazing experience and exciting game.
The entire holiday was good. Lots of travel, but good visits with his relatives. I'm glad to be home, however. Lots to be thankful for. First and foremost, Pebbles and Slater got themselves moved over the holiday, so we don't have to help today. Yay for self-sufficient kids!
The thing I loved most about yesterday was my early morning walk with SadieLu through Bick's Mamma's laked community. Beautiful and quiet. We got in a nice hour of solitude before anyone else was up. Getting centered and focused is a beautiful way to start a day.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Revel in tradition.
