Well Patty, I guess we'll just have to be friendly rivals. I remember a very special incident many years ago. It was the only time I remember radios being allowed in Spartan stadium. Michigan was playing Ohio State for the Little Brown Jug. We were playing Marquette. Our score was 56 to 0 and we were in the last few minutes of our game when the UofM score came through. Our fans poured onto the football field and took down the goal posts we then marched those (wooden) goalposts all the way to Ann Arbor and presented them to UofM. I don't know if the Spartans were able to finish the game. I am sure they did, but I remember the referees and coaches trying to get the fans off the field.
BTW. When we got back to East Lansing I went directly to the place where we knew the Rose Bowl tickets would be sold and spent the next night there in the cold waiting to purchase our tickets. I was the second in line and got fifty yard line seats. That was a problem for me though my husband was pleased. You see, my father cooked lunches for the team. Every Saturday after my dramatics club rehearsal on campus I walked over to the short course dorm and had lunch with the team. Biggie Munn was the coach then. He drew plays on a blackboard and I learned how to read plays from the end zone, for the life of me to this day I cannot read a play from the sidelines.
That was the third time Michigan State was eligible to go to the Rose Bowl and was the last time they went until many years later. I was lucky to be there when MSU was in their prime. I retain a wonderful sense of pride in that team even now 57 years later.
PS. Thanks for the memories.

It's been a busy day of cleaning and reorganizing. Now as I'm sitting in my chair looking toward the dining room there is a big, blank wall that is crying for a picture or wall hanging. This project is going to take a couple of days.
Patty I'm a little over 6 lb. to Onederland.
Ann, I'd heard of storing celery in tin foil but not peppers. I'll have to try that. While we were picking blackberries my youngest son said "I now have about $20 worth of blackberries" - going by the store prices, about $5 for a very small box.
Judy, Glad all went well with your appointment today.
Sarah, Were you cooking apples yesterday for a recipe? Also did you have a recipe for the overnight oatmeal?
This has been an amazing day. First I had a visit from a caseworker to assess my need for a caregiver. The new caregiver will start on Tuesday next week. I am excited because she and I are both interested in recreation delivery. I have worked where she is currently working. She is going to be fun for me.
Then a friend came by with two other friends and delivered a futon that I bought from a neighbor of hers. We had a lovely talk for quite a while.
Then I was able to get my banking business done via telephone, long distance is back. Got the furnace payment made. Only two more to go.
Of course you meant to shout!!! We always shout when the Spartans win. That is why I don't have a voice between games. I do love Spartan football.
It is the texture of the frozen carrots that I don't like and I haven't been able to puree them enough so the soup is smooth. I do love Carrot soup. I have some with ginger and some with Cashews. Yum! Still I will take them either fresh or dried. That will work for me.
I am trying to gather a lot of different vegetables so that I will be able to make a good soup with them. I am figuring that I may have some but not all the ingredients I need for a good soup. If I have a supply on hand I can improvise.
Good Morning. Another warm one. DD came by for dad to fix her breakfast after she had some lab work done. She took the day off from work. We have enough left over salad so I won't have to cook tonight. DD is going to Costco tomorrow so she's going to pick me up one of their spinach apple salads for our supper tomorrow. Tomorrow is Chemo day.
Judy, if you have frozen carrots that don't appeal to you, use them in soups that have to be pureed. I think both of the cauliflower and broccoli soup I make has a few carrots in them. Also carrot soup is wonderful. I never would have believed that until we made it in the low fat cooking class I use to take. Fresh celery will keep for two or more weeks if you wrap it in alum. foil. also bell peppers.
Sarah, I've not been reading but probably will start a book tomorrow or over the week end. One of our RVers sent me a book in the mail with a new author I've never heard of before.
Patty, I have to be good today. Yesterday was not the best eating day for me and I still have dessert left over. I sent the left over nuts home with DD.
We have company so few times any more it is nice today that the house is still clean. Laundry is caught up too.
Jan, you know if I had bought the amount of blackberries here that you picked it would have cost a bundle. The packages are expensive and so small. I'm surprised you are sitll able to pick them now.
Good morning, Supposed to be in the high 70's today, then in the high 60's for a few days. I sure can take that weather. I love autumn.
JUDY, DID YOU GET MY MESSAGE ABOUT THE SPARTANS. THEY WON. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I THOUGHT THEY LOST. SO YOU CAN BE HAPPY ABOUT YOUR LANSING TEAM. THIS IS ALL IN CAPS BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO SEE IT, NOT BECAUSE I AM YELLING AT YOU...LOL
ok, now down to business
how are you doing girls. Jan, you are needing to update you weight losses on your ticker. How close are you to onederland?
I am so proud of all of you. You are doing so well.
