The sounds and smells of college football is in the air these days.  The days are starting to get cooler and autumn is shaping up to make a grand entrance. Wood smoke of hickory, mesquite and pecan wafts through the air.  School colors are attached to car tops and the colors Crimson and Cream can be seen flying above Motor homes, 5th wheels and travel trailers starting to  arrive on Thursday before the big game. Yes College football is in full swing along with the festivities of tailgating.
Breaking down getting ready for the game!

I have never tailgated until this year.  I've had many after game chili suppers at my house but never a tailgate tent and good company.

Fellow Stargazer
My stargazing buddy was lamenting that he didn't have a tailgate site yet so I offered him my front yard free of charge. 

I had a wonderful time and the upside of it is, that it made me clean my house which is a blessing in disguise. I am not a bad housekeeper but with all that has been going on with will searches, going through papers, pitching unnecessary documents and junk, I let things slide.  I am getting better though. Dave did all the housework for the last 17 years so I am having to find my groove so to speak.  

For our first tailgate we had brisket, beans, potato salad, yum!  Last home game was Cane's chicken with coleslaw, macaroni salad and potato salad with a lemon pudding cake.  Yum again. I'm looking forward to the onion burgers at our next tailgate, hopefully!

But I have to wait until after the OU-TEXAS game when we play Kansas State...

Can't wait until we can shout...HOOK those HORNS...BEAT TEXAS!!! Horns turned downward!
