i hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Mr D and i are just chillin'...
...no early morning "loss leader" quests for us!
The Chocolate Gousse had an extra workout with yesterday
morning's fetch! we didn't crack open the paper until an hour
ago. by the time you read this, it will be recycled!
today, we celebrate the 106th Apple Cup!
the Washington State Cougars
the University of Washington Huskies.
this year, the game is in Seattle.
the image above is from Apple Cup 2005 when
the students and alumni of WSU won the
honor of having their colors fly
atop the Space Needle, by doubling
the UW with Katrina relief donations!
(mind you...the UW is much bigger, housing the
med school and the law school.
Washington State is the agriculture school,
and also boasts a wonderful veterinary
school and communications school with emphasis
on broadcast journalism.)
both Chrislyn and Jay are WSU grads.
our son in law, Jason graduated from Washington State
a couple years ahead of Chrislyn. he has an MBA from
UW, but is COUG through and through!
|this morning, above Seattle, on The Smith Tower under the prettiest ice blue sky!|
today, COUG SPIRIT won again, the
Seahawk's 12th Man flag has been taken down from the
Smith Tower for one day to fly the Cougar flag!
i need to get going...
...it's time to text "it's game day", to Jay and don my
Crimson and Grey!
kickoff is at 12:30 pm PST!
