Thursday, October 11, 2018 – Fall!
Finally, the hinges of Hell begin to cool in Texas. I think October might be one of my favorite months. It probably comes in third after December and January. Those two months involve presents to me for Christmas and birthday.
In October the temperatures are cooler; the humidity is lower and the weather is usually nice. Except of course when your state is flooded by hurricanes.
And then there are sports. College football teams begin to see who is for real and who moves on to basketball. I would not be so excited about the baseball playoff were it not for the Houston Astros. I am ready for a repeat. I know HB and Dale Marie are lining up the wins for them from Above.
An October event that is a bucket list item must is the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This year is the 47th Annual Balloon Festival and the theme is Carry Me Away. The scene is so spectacular it must be experienced. I am ready to go back. Road Trip Next Year??? The festival is the first two weeks in October.
The Football Snark comes tomorrow. But it’s fall. Let’s have an early snark.
Texas Tech and TCU tonight on ESPN at 6:30 in Amon G. Carter Stadium inFort Worth. Throw your tortillas at the choo-choo frog train Tech. FYI Tech that is the train that runs with each TCU TD. I hope you hear many times.
