When we finished Grimmwood, we were so happy to have a little home in NoGA. And we began to ponder the fact that now we might be able to attend some Georgia Tech football games in the fall.
So this week, Marvin locked in our SEASON ticket package. I am so excited. I love college football and especially the Ranbling Wrecks and the Crimson Tide.
Marvin really enjoys visiting his old Alma Mater.
Through the years we have managed to take in a few games. It is always exciting when the Rambling Wreck appears on the field.
And that Buzz...he is a great mascot. Marvin had to explain to granddaughter, Margaret, that it was not a BEE...it was a Yellow Jacket. On a side note, Big Al, the Alabama mascot is just pitiful with that dangling floppy trunk. Surely we can do better than that BAMA!! Call the engineers at GT and have them design us a new mascot costume.
And many know the lyrics to our fight song...I'm a rambling wreck from Ga Tech and a helluva engineer. Once son, Charles, on reading the lyrics asked his dad, "What kind of engineer is a helluva ( hell oo va) engineer. It the only cuss word allowed in our family.:) Strictly speaking, Marvin is a trained nuclear physicist but the work he does in the defense industry falls more into the engineering side of science.
So guess what Nana has to carry to the games this fall???? And this size is allowed. I checked. Many schools are making the ladies carry a see through bag. How this happened in the South where a woman is defined by her handbag, I do not know!!
So if you are looking for me on any given Saturday this fall, you can find me at Georgia Tech!
