Lucky Days

Well we are home after being gone for 12 days. It was quite a trip and we are glad to be back home sleeping in our own beds!! If I have not visited your blog lately, I will be playing catch up.

On the way out of town we stopped by my dentist office where I picked up this nice gift basket I won. Each month Dr Cook's office gives away a basket full of goodies. All the patients who have appointments that month are entered into a drawing. I had lots of fun and yummy goodies in my tin.

To start our week at Grimmwood we were off to see Georgia Tech vs Alcorn State.

It is always fun to see the Ramblin Wreck led the team onto Grant Field.

While heading UP the hill to the game we caught a glimpse of Buzz, resting in the Wreck.

It was quite warm and Buzz was fanning himself. We left the game early as it was so hot and Tech was leading 41 to 0. Unfortunately yesterday they lost the away game after building a commanding lead.  Come on Jackets...we can do better. Our next home game will be is not looking good for the guys from North Avenue Trade School.

I love seeing a  college band perform....Up with the White and Gold along with Ramblin Wreck from GA Tech are standards at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Hoping for some cooler fall temps at the next game.

What a great idea for giving away a collection of goodies each month to your dentist's patients! WOW! You did get some really nice goodies!

Poor Buzz...I can't imagine how hot he must have been in that outfit in those hot temps!

And I totally understand wanting to get back to your own bed after being gone for 12 days!

I will look forward to hearing more about the sibling reunion! :)

Sounds like a great trip. I hear you on sleeping in your own bed. Trips away are fun, but there's no place like home.

I love the idea of a dentist giving a gift basket full of candy. I want his number. Glad you had a nice getaway and you're home safely.

So glad you are home safely and had a great trip, Arlene! I think I might just suggest that gift idea to my dentist when I go in October--enjoy all those goodies :)
