Did someone mention Mississippi State? We were in Starkville over the weekend. We managed to beat Samford, but Texas A&M is this coming Saturday. Then it's Ole Miss, Arkansas, and Alabama. Shazams! What a way to wind up a season. They are all nationally ranked teams. We can take solace in our contribution to the Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott. It saved their season.

By the way Dak is a prince of a fellow. My grandson thought he was tops as a person. Here is a picture of Harrison, Lou and me taken Friday night. Another is Harrison blocking for the extra point at the LSU game. The SEC West is a very tough conference.

If the photo was correct the first time, I can rotate it back!!! At least Harrison was on the bottom of the pile. That's one big boy!

In Division 1 football all offensive line guys are big boys. When not on the field they are in the gym year round. Just for reference I am 6'1".

Not only are they big and strong but they are fast. I played in the '60s and I never faced guys this size today but if I did I might not be alive now. LOL

A diversion for sure, but what the hell. It's football season in SEC country. This is a video of Stan Hindman doing a run down on a punt return run. Stan went on to play 8 seasons with the SF 49ers. He then went back to architectural school and practiced in Oakland for the rest of his career.

Stan and I were room mates while doing our annual training at 4th Corps Headquarters in Birmingham. He was not large for a defensive guard, but boy was he fast.

This will be my virgin get together with these TF guys and I'm not sure what I am getting into (I'm probably over my head) but I have already made reservations so it's too late to turn back now.

You'll know the secret handshake before you leave.

After the long dissertation on uses of TP, that's what I'm afraid of. LOL

The worst that can happen is you'll gain a few pounds, might have drunk a little too much, and your wallet may be a little lighter from the trip to the boat liquidator supply store.

Hi Ted

That would a disaster: if I gain any more weight the boat won't move, if I keep drinking my head may explode and my wallet is damn thin now due to exwives. LOL. Sounds like fun.

After the full day presentations/lectures and all the homework Don gives out, there is no time to spend money so you should be alright.

You do need to avoid the marine Liquidators at all costs! (or come by truck).

So my question is, does Don provide a bus with a big container for all the goodies? Does he have a source to raise the water line on my boat? LOL

Don usually provides the short bus for trips to the Marine Connection.

NEWS FLASH!

Just got word that the first round in Ft. Pierce is on Ted. A very generous gesture, Ted. Thanks.

But does Don provide the return trip with delivery of all the crap we really don't need to the boat? LOL

Sign me up for multiple places for the "first round" please.

Hoping for nice weather.
