Cotton Pickin' Time

I have really enjoyed my trips around the state lately.  I really have enjoyed the "miles" of delta flat land.  It amazes me how one field will still be green, one is brown but still has the cotton and yet another has been "picked".
I stopped to take a few pictures of this beautiful site.  (no I don't remember where) and when I rolled down the window I was hit with a smell from my past.  I am pretty sure it was the scent of "cotton poison" as Daddy would say but I was sent back in time in an instant.  No mistaking that smell.
Here are the pictures.  Isn't this pretty??

Tailgating (sorta)

We wanted to enjoy the State game in style but were unable to make the trip to Starkville so we "tailgated" at the house or would that be kitchen gating???
Oh well we had great food, great company and a great game. 

And the BEST Dawgs won. 
Way to go dogs!!!

Lauren's Birthday

Happy Birthday Lauren
We had a great dinner out and then back to Mark & Caroline's for "dessert".  Lauren opened her presents.
We gave her present to her early, a gift certificate for a massage.  Her very first one.  We wanted her to have a very relaxing birthday.  I think she enjoyed it.  Here are a few pictures from the evening.
