Hail! to the victors valiant, Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes,

leaves01.jpgHail! Hail! to Michigan, the champions of the West! Well, I think we’re the *north*, not the west but anyway. I heard the marching band play that loverly little ditty at 7 AM. I could hear it all the way over at the Yellow Slide Playground. It was followed by Let’s Go Blue, then silence. It’ll probably smell like beer downtown by around 10 AM. I think I’ll stay cozily ensconced in my shabby little west-side bungalow. I *will* be watching for the blimp. Er, maybe *listening* for the blimp is more accurate — see comments.

Good morning, Ann Arbor!

Update: Thanks to today’s commentors for keeping me posted on the game and surrounding activities. Jane, who is in the usual flight path of the fighter jets reports that they didn’t show. Maybe the cloud cover was too low. I dunno. I, who am under the Daytwa Metro flyway, thought I heard one leaving the area just after the game began but I guess it was an auditory hallucination. John reported that “we” lost the game. I spent the day on illustrator, html, decluttering, and all the usual routine chores and only ventured out of the house for a couple of small, local errands, oh, I’m guessing probably in about the second quarter. Anyway, you guys, it’s just a game.

Grok grok! This is th’ stoopidist blahg ever! Grok grok! I wanna sing my babushka song! Grok grok! FROGGY!!! I think the babushka song might SCARE people!

    I still can identify a blimp by the noise it makes. Memories of being in the back yard on Saturdays.
    Late entry to the T-day food – we will either be by ourselves or with a family that Carl kid-cares for. But our entry to our tradition is Soup in a Pumpkin. Not really Pumpkin Soup, but more like french onion soup cooked in a pumpkin. Dee-licious. Kids will be spending T-day at their respective schools, and Ashlan doesn’t even get the day off.

    15 minutes to kick-off. I’m wondering if there will be jets flying over in 14 minutes – I live 1 block from Main Street so they scream right over head.

    Fingers crossed for an upset over OSU!
