Our lovely home

A HUGE event in our lives that occurred JUST before my oral comprehensive exams was the selling of our home. Our lovely, wonderful, comfortable home into which we (along with family and friends) had poured so much time, energy, money, and love. We only lived here for 4 short years, but we loved it so much. Many of you were unable to come visit us way out in old Crawford, so I thought I'd give you guys a virtual tour, while allowing myself time to reminisce.

Kno Limit Solja AND Quotin' my boy Cube

I was telling Jess from day 1 this kid was a beast. Instead of giving these defenders stiff arms he is giving them the John Cena (waving hand in front of his face meaning you can't see me) all the way down the field. You know I am just kidding. I can't stand these guys doing this everytime I watch a game.

Anyway, Knowshon pretty much carried (no pun intended) our team to victory. This cat needs to carry the rock 25+ times a game.

Just my 2 cents.


Quotin' my boy Cube

"Today was a good day."
I love it when Florida loses. Get ready for that 3 game losing streak.
Three keys to why I believe the Dawgs will finally get another victory in Jacksonville:
1. The Dawgs can never seem to win this game when we are obvioulsy the better team. Now that we are mediocre to average, there should be low expectations. The Dawgs should win because no one will give them a chance.
2. We usually win when we have a bye week before this game.
C. I'm tired of losing to these Jort wearing punks.
Cool points for those that laughed when they saw the letter C instead of the number 3.
Anyway, I'm out.

Stop playing that stupid song!

As many of you know, this was an all too familiar site during the UGA vs UT game. I don't know if I was annoyed by our lack of anything or the fact that all I heard all game long was that stupid Rocky Top song.

Anyway, I suspect that this year will end up much like last season. We just lack that killer instinct that is needed to be a dominant team. I believe this starts with our coaches. Namely, Martinez and Bobo. I think Bobo's play calling is alright sometimes, but how many times are we going to run that same draw play? It is a good thing Moreno is a beast. That cat seems to always make something out of nothing.

On defense, I don't understand how Willie can continuously run some version of a zone defense. How many times does a team have to pick us apart before a light turns on and we try something else?

Anyway, these are just my thoughts on the Dawgs. I will post the Vandy pic soon and some thoughts on that game. Hope everyone is doing well.

The pets (and Jonathan)

During this crazy crazy summer, one of the exciting events was when Brent landed his new job. So, in the midst of moving and getting ready for my comps, we decided to celebrate. Jonathan got one of B's old vending shirts and ripped it to shreds as you can tell. I encouraged him to wear it out to eat with us to Outback, and believe me, we got some stares. But how awesome it was to rip it up and be DONE with that job.
As you can see, Napoleon got a little supercat cape from the celebratory shirt ripping as well.

Napoleon quite enjoyed the packing part of the move. There were bags, boxes, and suitcases galore to crawl into and hide, one of his fave things to do. There were also plenty of doors open that were usually closed, as in this laundry room closet door. Nap took this opportunity to crawl into a cozy spot.

I was hanging out over at Kobs, watching "Girlfriends", and we had unexpected company - Javad and Tiffany stopped by with their puppy. She and Cash were instant friends and played so hard the whole time, so much so that we finally had to separate them for fear of waking up the downstairs neighbors.
