Bye Bye Baja

Just a few updates since the LSU-Bama game, which seems like it was ages ago. Since then, LSU has been impressively under-motivated and has seemingly squandered a chance at a National Championship. However, some Bama fans I know would argue that their team has done worse having not won a game since, and lost to another team in Louisiana. I haven't seen any "Saban is God" pictures depicting him walking on water lately. Note to Bama fans: Saban is a good coach, but he is not invincible. He did get beat while at LSU, namely to UAB and to Iowa in his final game as LSU head coach. He is good, but beatable, as is anyone in college football these days. Give him a chance, and he will pay off; although I admit, $4 Million a year is a lot to pay to lose to La-Monroe. I would have done it for a lot less.

So, I sold one of my prized possesions......the Baja. The problem with it, which was the only problem with it, was that I never drove it. I have a company vehicle now and all the lonely Baja got was an occasional trip to Food World. No matter what your opinion of the vehicle is, it was honestly one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. I definitely miss it.

Here is the crazy part: I listed it on www.cars.com, which I recommend, and it sold within three weeks. The couple that bought it live in Missouri, drove down to pick it up, stayed in a hotel, paid cash, and gave me asking price. Nice. And even better, I actually made a little money on the vehicle, which i have never, ever done. So the baja chapter unfortunately ended, but it ended well. Here are some memorial pics:

LSU vs. Bama 2007

As a late birthday gift, my lovely wife gave me 2 tickets to LSU/Bama which, in case you are not a football fan, was the hottest ticket in Tuscaloosa in years. I have not slept good since Thursday night when she gave them to me. Needless to say, I was just a bit excited.



Here are me, Lynn and Savannah pre-game.





Right after this, Savannah was wisked away in a white Escalade by her grandparents. Momma and Poppa Mason dropped us off at the quad, which proved to be a pretty interesting ride considering Poppa Mason almost ran over a cop while admiring some sorority girls in their short dresses.



Ran into my old buddy Ron Smith. This is me, Ron, and Dad.



Lynn and I right before going to the stadium. Isn't she cute?



We took this when we got to our seats. Everything was going pretty good for the bengal tigers in the first quarter. Up 17-3, it looked like we might just have a blow-out which would have been fine with me considering the past three games.


Fast forward to the second half. I was not very happy at this point. We had not scored since the first quarter, and it would get worse before it got better.

Savannah's Halloween school outfit.



She kinda got upset when she realized she couldn't pick up the pumpkin.


And this is the pink leopard with mommy.


Savannah really thought the air ghost in Poppa Gary's front yard was neat.


She tried to catch the little plastic bats that were flying around inside.



And she really liked the air that came out of the hand of the ghost. Everytime we would get close enough for it to blow her hair straight up, she thought it was hilarious.

Savannah Walking

On my birthday, (October 24) Miss Savannah decided it was time for her to walk all by herself. She has been full speed ever since. Here is a sample.
