Give Me Liberty or . . . .
Mississippi State 10- University of Central Florida 3
You can wrap this one in Maroon and White!
The road trip is over. Stik (my best friend) and I left last Thursday and spent a night at our friend Susan's parents home in Aberdeen. Susan and I go way back. She works for the North American Mission Board. She's prettier now than when I met her when she was 18!
Anyway...Stik and I drove on up to Memphis on Friday and got to Beale Street just in time for the Liberty Bowl Parade.
We ate Ribs and Pulled Pork at the Rum Boogie Cafe- home to a mighty fine collection of guitars!
The Liberty Bowl later that day was packed with a record crowd of 63800+ fans- most of them wearing Maroon and ringing cowbells!
I saw my special friends Jency and Tyler- theirs was the first wedding I ever performed and Jency is/was one of my all time favorite students from my first youth group in Aberdeen a lot of years ago. They both work at MSU now.
