These very strange fireworks pictures were taken after the U. game on Saturday night. As if tailgating and the game weren't enough, they had a big fireworks show after the game, too.
Tailgating usually means running into former students and hunting down a former colleague who is the Tailgate King.
They won the game. I loved the atmosphere and the half-time show.
Sunday, we camped and enjoyed the cool weather. (I had a sweater on at 3:00 in the afternoon.) I almost melted my flip flops at the fire ring. I was trying to snuggle up to that fire Sunday night. I don't know if we've ever had nicer camping.
We came home to a house of incredibly tired 10 year graduates who had celebrated into the wee hours. A couple of brave souls only had about 5 hours sleep before they got up to go hunting out at the farm. The bulk of them left to catch their plane at about noon, and I think I slept most of the afternoon.
I guess I can take pleasure in the fact that most of the nation is back at school now. In a weird twist, they are greeting students back to school, whereas we are getting ready for mid-term reports!
It is a good thing Labor Day comes but once a year. Otherwise, this whole town might have to take the day off from work to recuperate!
