Marching Royal Dukes...2nd best thing about football games. How I LOVE a drum line!
Double rainbow...good luck for the Dukes!
Last, but not least...football is good for the return of the sausage dip...oh my, the cheesy goodness.
2. If you follow the Twitter updates in the feed to the right (------->), you know that we lost one of our kitties to kidney failure several weeks ago. It was just a few weeks before the kid's birthday, and we knew that we would eventually bring another girl into the house when the timing was right. A friend's cat had kittens, and we planned to go pick one out when they were ready, but fate intervened. A feral cat at the lake had a litter of three, and this one told us she wanted to come home with us. It was meant to be...she's grey tabby, like our Karma was, and unlike all the others, who were skittish and wild, this one leapt right into Andrew's arms and stayed there. She is a fluffy little roly-poly who has suddenly found her confidence and her wildness...she bites feet, chases skirts, harrasses the old cat, and even wiggles her way into the bowels of the couch by squeezing through cushions and through cracks. Yes, to the point that I had to cut the base of the couch to get her out. But, she's cute, and named after one of our favorite OBX haunts, Goombay's. Andrew chose the name from a plastic souvenir cup he was using at the time. Welcome, Goombay. Now, get off my feet.3. Andrew's been sick this week. It's early in the year for it, but if he follows his pattern, this is really the only time he'll be sick all year. He and I have both set personal absentee records...I missed a day for myself because of flu last week, then stayed home with him another day and a half (he tried to go to school and didn't make it) while he dealt with his bronchitis. He's a trooper and a ham, though, and took the exam table as an opportunity to play dead.
My coffee cup is empty, there's laundry to be done, and later, football to watch and beers to drink. (Go Dukes!) I really love Saturdays.
