Continuation from the last post…
After breakfast, we drove to College Station in time to see the football team walk from their buses to the field house. The team would be wearing retro uniforms and helmets for this game so the yell leaders also wore retro jackets. Such a cool look!
Kick-off for this game was 11:00 a.m., so these activities began early. The corps stepped off at 9:30 and today they marched through the campus instead of in the stadium. We are standing in front of the reviewing stand where dignitaries and school officials stand.
We enjoyed watching Parsons Calvary go by with the horses and wagons. They normally don’t march with the corps. I was on the wrong side of the street for the sun but on the right side for the reviewing stand!
After the game, we were able to walk around campus after most of the people had gone to their tail gating parties. By the afternoon, the temperatures had risen and we could take off a layer or 2!
It was dark by the time we got back to the hotel so we just watched football and went to bed early.
On Sunday, we were lazy until it was time for church at 2nd Baptist Kingwood. There we got to have a short but meaningful visit with the Ts. What wonderful friends; it’s always good to see them. (And no, we did not go to the service dressed like that!)
with a milkshake for dessert…
It was a great week end; only sorry the Texas crew could not be there with us. Oh, yes, A&M won the game against ULa/Monroe.
