Food For Thought

Brisk Friday nights and high school football games take me right back to the early ‘50s when I often wore Mother’s sealskin coat to watch the Knoxville Panthers play.

Walkin'

Pearl is one miserable critter, and Buzz has become a pill-popping junkie lately.
On a walk in the woods recently, Pearl managed to stab herself while dashing around in the timber like the labradoodle she is. During our walks, especially the ones in the woods, her brain gets locked onto two words, “Oh boy!”
Something died over here, “Oh, boy!”
Something peed over there, “Oh, boy!”
Something moved, “Oh, boy!

Hawk Talk

I thought last year’s 27-24 loss to Minnesota was the most depressing loss the Hawkeyes had in a long time… until last Saturday’s 22-21 loss at Gopherland.
I’ve always said that if Minnesota and Iowa State would play as hard against the rest of their schedule as they do against the Hawks, they would have a winning season and go to bowl games… not so fast, my friends.
I thought I was watching Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day” last Saturday.
In the film, Bill would wake up and have to go through the day the same as it was the day before.
