Ready For Some Football?

Saturday means lots of things, but here in America one is certainly college football. If I was explaining this to say, a European sophisticate, I’d start with mascots, a big part of the fun. The Georgia Bulldogs are currently #1. Here’s their mascot Uga X (tenth in the Uga line).

    That Uga X is one tough dude!

    I received an SDD from RIO! and Friend with before and after photos of their little house. This is the before photo:

    WWI hero Sergeant Stubby was also a college mascot for a while.

    Someone has a goat. Naval Academy? And Army has a mule?

    Time was kidnapping the other team’s mascots was a thing. Glad it’s not any more. Traumatic for the mascot.

    Good day to all.

    Good day to everyone!
    The paint job on the house makes it look totally different. Very good.
    Mom went to the University of Redlands and their mascot was a bulldog as well. They couldn’t win a game back them to save themselves but it was a lot of fun.

    The mascot for the Georgetown Hoyas is Jack the Bulldog. More prominent at basketball games than football games, but the mascot for all team sports.

    Thanks to Rose for posting the before and after pictures of Rio and his friend’s home. The paint job is terrific.

    And Rio, how about Pujols getting to 700 last night! I think the slump may be over too.

    Oh, I do like the new paint job. It really brings out the architecture of the house.

    Today is the day for animals. It’s National Rabbit/bunny day, National Bluebird day and Fish Amnesty day. Have a salad. Or perhaps some mofongo, horchata and cherries jubilee.

    It, is; also. National: Punctuation! Day?

    One thing I love about the Chet and Bernie books is I rarely find any spelling or punctuation errors. I did find a missing word once, but that’s not the same thing. The grammar is top rate. I put that down to a superior author and fastidious editors. Makes for a very enjoyable read (on top of everything else) not being distracted by a misspelled word or a grammar or punctuation error. Not something you really think about. We really take it for granted. But all you have to do is read a careless or sloppy book and you come to appreciate Chet and Bernie even more.

    House!…My friend is very happy with the new paint job on The Curly Tail Cottage as she’s dubbed it. I’m happy if she’s happy…chuffle!….Color is not one of my strong points. I know she agonized over the 3 colors though. She wanted her doors to be black of all things. That I can see…sniff!

    Drought!…Youse can see what the drought this summer has done to my fine green grass….grump!…Even though it has been raining (right after the last bit of paint was put on!) the grass still looks dodgy ….sniff! …Maybe next year will be normal or at least better…gruffle!

    Rio! I think the new paint job looks great! House looks fresh.
    But it’s funny how one creates a picture of something in one’s mind. I will confess that your house doesn’t look at all like my imagination pictured it. Not better or worse, just different.

    Go Bulldawgs!

    Rio: I love how the contrasting trim really sets off the classy new color of your house. Great choices!

    Rio: Picking colors for a house is so stressful because you know you can’t just do over if you don’t like it.
    I decided to watch the red birds play a game in honor of your house turning out so well but I think I must be a jinx! Turning it off now, lol.

    Dawson: Actually you can do it over. It just cost a lot of money if you get it wrong the first time.
