Show Me a True-Blooded Aggie

It would appear Noah and I have not existed in October. Quite the contrary - but sorry for the lack of posting.

A few weeks ago, we headed up to the spot where the sagebrush grows to stand in the rain and watch the Aggies lose. Fortunately, the soggy slaughter was sandwiched between lunch with old ASUSU/Ambassador/SAA colleagues and dessert with the Thatchers. And we watched the game with our favorite SLC Aggies - the Millets (pictured below). So aside from the heartwrenching loss (they really had me believing for a while they might seal the deal) and the guy next to Noah who reeked of meat (not pictured below) it was a great time.



I also had one of those "weird, this isn't my scene anymore" moments... like when you walk through a high school for the first time after graduating. My adorable little sister is now on the SAA board, so she and her roomie came with Noah and me to the SAA tailgate before the game. As we walked through the parking lot holding our coats over our heads as makeshift umbrellas, I saw an old acquaintance of mine and Noah's. He waved, so naturally I waved back ... just as he stepped forward and threw his arm around Megan. It was sort of a jolt to realize I was now the observer, no longer the participant.

And another Aggie football game picture (better weather, longer hair, same score ... ) from last year.

A) LOVE the haircut!
B) I had the exact same feeling at a basketball game after I graduated. Weird, isn't it??

Totally feel you on the loss of your scene. I am still waiting for that feeling to kick in for Ben. Somehow I think it will ALWAYS be HIS scene for the rest of our lives, boo...

Al...CUTE hair. Love it!! I understand about it not being your scene...try living up here and having those feelings. I guess maybe it is time for me to move on. Anyways...y'all are so cute.

I like your current hair a lot. The Aggies suck, but you do have a great song. The one about the English men and the thistles, whose words I don't know but I know you eluded to.
