It Doesn't Get Better Than This

It just doesn't get much better than this--a football weekend in the South. Add to that a Friday night party for Ben and Claire, and you have a perfect weekend.

Friday night some of Ben's high school friends and their parents plus Allen and Areta hosted a shower complete with comfort food--chicken fingers, grits, blackeyed peas, greens, biscuits and homemade ice cream with pound cake. Yummmmm. Claire's mom Marie and sister Britton were able to be here, and we enjoyed hanging out and tweaking "The Lists."

Saturday morning bright and early, LBeau and I headed to Auburn with the red F-150 loaded with grills, tables, tailgate chairs and food to set up for the Alabama Chapter of the Arkansas Alumni Association Tailgate Party. We've been doing this for at least 10 years at either Auburn or Tuscaloosa, cooking burgers and dogs for all Hog fans who stop by. The money we raise goes to our chapter scholarship fund.

Top off the weekend with a 25-22 Razorback win over Auburn, and life is good.

Amen to that Aunt Kathy! What a GREAT weekend! The party looks fun (we are VERY sad to miss this weekend's festivities). The first thing I asked Benton when the game was going our way and victory seemed like a possibility is, "Do you think Aunt Kathy is there?" So glad you could enjoy it for all of us! JB
