this morning's pre-breakfast is on the farm table...and the Apple Cup!

good morning!

i hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Mr D and i are just chillin'... 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! 

thank goodness!

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...'s time to text "it's game day", to Jay and don my

 Crimson and Grey!

kickoff is at 12:30 pm PST! 



  1. Sounds like your family will have a fun time watching the big game.

  2. Good afternoon, Lynne!

    This is such a lazy day for me; I am lithless and I really want to read or write, but I just can't get the energy to do so. SO I declare this a lazy day chez moi! ENJOY the after-Thanksgiving rest! Anita

  3. I am feeling pretty lazy today. Sounds like you have a fun day planned. Enjoy. xo Laura
