What a great weekend I had! It started with the LAST TIGER FOOTBALL GAME!!! It was sad that we lost but the boys played hard. Although the Stony Point football team lost every game this season, it has to say good things about the new coach & program when you realize that they scored more points this year than the past 5 years combined!
After the game, we took the band kids who had won a contest during the car wash to IHOP as their prize. They (we) had a lot of fun, even though the food took forever to come to the tables and we didn’t get out of there until way after 1am! I think we have a better plan for next year.
On Saturday, I really couldn’t sleep in. You’d think that with the long day on Friday and Len with his adventure getting to Austin that we’d want to sleep half the day, but NO. 8am, eyes open!! It worked out okay though because we made it to Joshua’s 4th birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. Pizza at 10am. It was like college again!!
From there, Len & I ran some errands and headed to Houston for the UH game. Go Coogs!! They won the game against East Carolina. I know where North Carolina and South Carolina are but I’ve gotta know, where in the HELL is EAST Carolina??? Well, where ever it is, they’re back there after having lost to the Coogs! Other than the win, several very exciting things happened at the game. First, I saw my friend Connie & her daughter Sami across the stadium. Well, I actually texted messaged Connie with, “Guess where I am” and my phone rang with Sami asking me what section we were sitting in. Connie & I had talked last weekend about each of us going to the game. I took a stab in the dark that she was actually there. Second, Bill Moffitt (a very famous composer/arranger I grew up playing music of) was there. He had been a band director at UH for many years and did many of his famous marching band arrangements we’ve all played and loved while there. UH renamed their music building to honor him and they had him conduct the Cougar Band in his arrangement of The Horse (one of my favorite tunes). Very cool. Good friends, good music, good tailgate, good score. What else could someone ask for at a football game???
Sunday, we vegged out and watched Blues Brothers. Great classic movie. Again, I was surrounded with the music I grew up playing. The drive home was strange since it got so dark so fast but once I got home, it was immediate snuggling with the cats.
I can’t wait until Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve got 2 days that are 1/2 days and 3 days off before we even reach Saturday! I see more travelling in my future.
