That's me and The Sister. Most people find this hard to believe...but, I'm the older sibling.* Those of you who are long time readers of the various blogs know that I have never been anything but a loving brother. In return, I have regularly been called names, including "demon"...and been told to "suck it" and "can it." Do any of y'all remember the "Happy Birthday Moron" cake? It's tough being an older brother to such a prickly woman but Love is thankless.
It's her birthday today. It was not her birthday Monday when she was impatiently moaning about the Ole Miss post...begging attention for her Dawgs and the town of Starkville. If she had bothered to look at a calendar she might have hesitated before showing her ***! My sister is a graduate of Mississippi State University and she is right to demand some love for her school's football team.
MSU had a big win over Texas A&M this weekend. As a reward they get to play the #2 team in the country Auburn on Saturday. That's alright...State is ranked #3. Heady times in the Golden Triangle. It's reminiscent of the days when she was in the student section...when Jackie Wayne Sherrill roamed the sidelines..
When she snuck me and Martha into the student section so we could get the "Whiskey Shower"...:cough:forafaketouchdown:cough:. When she nearly got us kicked out of our apartment ringing a cowbell!...and when MSU made it to Atlanta.
When, in a thick smoke, we and local potheads, Hogleg (it means what?) were regulars at Dave's Darkhorse.
Good Times...Good Times.
Happy Birthday...Little Fred.
The one thing on her iphone I think we can all agree on...to some extent.
