I am a little late hitting the old blog this morning. I slept in to almost 8:00! That is very late for me. I read the paper and ate some Corn POPS before logging on. It is all about priorities, dear reader.
After some heavy rain yesterday evening and night we are greeted by a sunny, crisp fall day. Perfect football weather for those of you into college sports. It brings me on a stroll down memory lane, where life is all lollipops and good times. I think of walking down the streets around little old Wabash College, shoes crushing the fallen leaves, laughter leading the way as we trekked toward the football stadium. Cold beers in hand and belly, we are ready to enjoy life to its fullest. The trivia cares of study and tests and research papers are forgotten in a weekend of sport, of booze, and lust. Ah youth. Too bad it was not all as we remember it.
In the present, we are going to meet up with some friends today. The wives plan on a little shopping while the he-men women haters club enjoys some fine hand-rolled tobacco from a small Caribbean or Central American nation and a cold beer or two. I guess my life has not really changed much in the intervening quarter century plus since my college days.
My coffee grows cold. Have a great weekend.
