Football Weekend

We flew to Texas recently for the sole purpose of watching football games!

On the initial flight, one of us was on the back row …2014-10-09 003

with a non-talkative seatmate!2014-10-09 001

Luckily, it was a small plane and a short flight!

On the longer flight, we had much more leg room…2014-10-09 004

On the drive to Odem, we stopped at Freebirds for a burrito bowl.2014-10-09 006

Before we went to J’s football game, M and P were able to look over his plan for classes at A&M, where he has been accepted…but that’s no guarantee that he will go there.  He has applied to other schools with strong plant genetics programs.2014-10-09 0102014-10-09 011

The boys had early dismissal for parent conferences, so after lunch, my favorite chauffer took me to see the new heifers.

This year they are going to show heifers as well as pigs.2014-10-10 007

The varsity played in Kingsville at Javelina Stadium on the campus of Texas A&I.  They were playing Kingsville Academy which is the high school on the King Ranch.

P played a great game; he had 5 catches for 80 yards. The Owls were the winners!

The football team walks in as part of the band leads the way.  Here are some Senior boots; these are the same as what Mike wore in 1966 when he was a Senior in the Corps of Cadets. 2014-10-11 014
