The students are here in force as preparations for Day 1 of classes on Monday peak this week. Traffic snarling like a California Golden Bear (hi to GB, Bayhawk!), which of course means another shot at KUFB getting better and the rapidly approaching (but not fast enough, damn it, not fast enough! says Jean-Luc Picard in my head) beginning of the college hoops season!
Anticipation, Jayhawks fans!

Ditto on the snarling traffic. I need to take a campus artery to leave my domicile. I’m taking the alternate, longer route to avoid the snarl.....I have the stop sign.....cross traffic on the “speedway” does not.

I have officially become my mother! :-D

What a way to lift me out of the mid morning doldrums, dancing and singing along with Carly! (In my case, best done alone and in full disguise....)

Yes, I'm ready!

Not particularly excited about football, but it can only get better. Meanwhile, I spent this morning at work :ohmy: entering the bball schedule into my phone calendar.

Can't start soon enough!!! :cheer:

Thursday is move in day for the dorms. Lucky for us, we leave Thursday AM to attend a niece's wedding in Miami and get back Sunday late so we will miss some of the craziness. Love the energy around Lawrence this time of year but the traffic can be nuts, especially with the construction around 19th and Iowa.

Gosh, seems like just yesterday I was moving to Lawrence for the first time. But alas, it was 44 years ago. I was oblivious to both KU football and basketball when I came to Lawrence but I very quickly became a huge fan. I remember spending a beautiful Lawrence November Saturday afternoon underneath my mom's 1967 Impala where it broke down right by the Chi-O fountain. The fuel pump needed replacing and I had to do it right there. But it perfectly coincided with the Jayhawk football game on November 8th between Kansas and Oklahoma in Norman. Oklahoma was ranked No. 1 (and ended up winning the National Championship). But Nolan Cromwell, our phenom defensive back turned option quarterback, ran for 294 yards. I turned the radio up in the car so I could hear it. KU absolutely dominated OU 23-3 for one of the best wins ever for KU. What a glorious November day. It is hard to beat Lawrence for beautiful fall days and that was a perfect day. That was the year of Nom Cook, Ken Kopenigs, Paul Mokeski and Clint Johnson. That was a different time where KU had two of top three players from Kansas (Koenigs, Johnson) not to mention Brad Sanders from Leavenworth.

Don't worry about the mules, just load the wagon!!
