This week's prompts are: Any of the Five Senses, Toys, Candid, Half and Batteries
1. Any of the Five Senses
Penn State Bloody Mary...my secret ingredient sure to arouse the senses: Old Bay Seasoning. Yum!
Tailgating is all about having fun. And the Better Half has fun with his "toy"...the grill. A 12:00 kick-off means breakfast sandwiches are on the menu...grilled Taylor Pork Roll and egg sandwiches pre-game.
Of course, there are the more "traditional" tailgating toys too...
Penn State was playing University of Ohio. I had to wonder if this Ohio fan started to second guess his choice of covering himself in green paint when the paint began to sweat off in the second half. He was considerate tho...he brought a garbage bag to cover the seat when he sat down. Poor guy.
And another candid...
"We Are...Penn State"
(linked to: Your Sunday Best)
The University of Ohio might have won ON the field. But Penn State came out a winner in my book. It's been a VERY tough few months for Penn State. It was heart warming and re-assuring to see the Penn State pride was still there and shining brightly.
"Out of Batteries"
Ya know? As one who bleeds blue and white, and is a loyal Penn State alumni...it's been a LONG road. And Saturday was a LONG day. By the end of it...I felt as if I was completely out of batteries myself. But still Penn State proud.
This has nothing to do with Scavenger Hunt. But I wanted to show ya that the maelstrom and stress continues...this plane circled during the morning tailgating. For those who do not know, Erickson is the President of Penn State and under a lot of fire due to how he's handled much of the crisis.
"Look to the Skies Penn State"
And on a much happier and personal note...my Thing #1 turns 27 on Tuesday. My "little" boy ain't so little anymore. I'm so proud of that kid and the wonderful man he has morphed into. Altho, I still don't understand how I can have a 27 year old???? I guess that is what happens when you have a kid at 10 years old. Totally worth the whole scandal and embarrassment I caused my family (TOTALLY kiddin' folks!!!!!!)
"The Favorite Son"
Okay Sis...I did it. Sometimes I regret suggesting she participate in Scavenger Hunt. Puts a lot of pressure on me, ya know???? Hope you all are enjoying the last weekend of summer, and spending Labor Day in a way that brings a smile to your face. And if you have the time, please hop on over to Ashley's Ramblings and Photos to check out all the other Scavenger Hunt Sunday submissions.
