November 19th

What a difference a week makes

Hawk Talk

The bipolar Hawkeye football team took the north route in Saturday’s 30-14 win at Illinois.
To say the win was the biggest of the season would be close, but the 48-7 win over Northwestern was even better since the Wildcats upset Notre Dame 43-40 in overtime at South Bend at the same time Iowa was beating Illinois.
Iowa will be underdogs in its final two home games with Wisconsin and Nebraska.
In the last five games, Iowa has beaten Indiana 45-29, lost to Maryland 38-31, beat Northwestern 48-7, got crushed by Minnesota 51-14 and then beat Illinois 30-14.

The shopping list

Food for Thought

While cleaning out a drawer the other day, I pulled out an old purse I’d saved for some reason. It was beyond any practical use, but before I tossed it into the trash, I checked to make sure there wasn’t something valuable in there– some treasured photos, a book of postage stamps, a few dollars tucked into a forgotten pocket in case of emergency. No such luck, but I did find a rather lengthy shopping list that intrigued me because of the memories it brought to mind.
