Rainy Start

We woke up to rain this morning and it continued until early afternoon. We cooked breakfast...bacon, eggs and biscuits and played lazy all morning. We had some errands to run this afternoon and included a little shopping at Target and the outlet stores. For supper, we went to the Sea Shack and everyone enjoyed their meal. We came back to play foozeball, work on the jigsaw puzzle,make candy ornaments and suckers and watch bowl games.

Ending 2011

As 2011 comes to an end, we are enjoying some time at Hilton Head, SC.

We had lunch in and supper at Crazy Crab but when were finished eating when we realized that no picture of the food had been taken. Watching the bowl game, playing with Legos, being on the computer, etc. filled our evening hours.

Maybe tomorrow we will be more productive, but probably not! We are here to rest, relax and recharge!

Another Football Game

We drove to Texas for this football game and the one on Thanksgiving night. This was Mike’s 45th class reunion at A&M. We went to the dinner on Saturday night but didn’t take any pictures…we knew that you wouldn’t know any of those people and neither did Mike!!

Here are some snapshots that we took before and during the game.

And yes, the one yell leader is quite tall!007




Sid and Mike were roommates at A&M.



Muffin top and boots…020

The graves of the deceased mascots…more at the last picture.021

Big George was being honored…023

The fly-over were 3 Ospreys from California.026

Block T with the entire Corps of Cadets …the first time since 1956…Mike never got to do this.035

In front of the graves is a scoreboard so the “dead dogs’ can see the score.!038
