Even the non hunters in the family got pretty excited for him.
Saturday's dinner - in addition to some other yummies we made for a Duck game tailgate (stay tuned for recipes) included Ram's meat Shepard's Pie. I didn't think I ate "sheep treats" but either it isn't bad, or Chris is a very good cook. The dish was flavorful and the meat was tender. The fact that I was so excited to see a picture of a dead sheep head on my cell phone, and that I enjoyed the meal I'll take as evidence that I'm turning more and more into a rural Oregonian everyday.
24 hours worth of mothering in under 3 minutes!! Perfect, what mom doesn't need more time??

This morning I was enjoying lounging a bit in bed - the first morning this week I haven't had the alarm set for sometime between 5 and 6 am - when Chuck came in shortly before 9 and said, "Come watch Lee put the head on." It cracks me up that was exciting enough to get me to out from under the down comforter and downstairs. Chuck thinks it is because I think Herbstreit is a hottie, which is completely true, but I also just love the excitement on Saturdays during college football season. Here's routing for Brook's Kentucky team. Go Wildcats. We'll hope Lee was wrong with the gator head.

The boy may look like his mother, but man seems to have had himself cloned. These two are two peas in a pod. Chuck and I went out to lunch yesterday and had a conversation about how tired Charlie has been since returning form Outdoor school. We both agreed with concern that he needs more rest . I made the suggestion that maybe he shouldn't have stayed up so late on Monday night watching the Padres game. Chuck, on the other hand, accepts it as given that during the playoffs and the world series, Charlie will be staying up late. I suggested we keep him at home out from school today, to catch up on his sleep so that he can stay up this week and watch the games. Chuck nodded seriously and thought that was a good idea. (I WAS TOTALLY BEING SARCASTIC. Even though I couldn't convince either of these goofballs of this fact this time of year, SCHOOL IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT BASEBALL!!!)

It is a shitty picture from my phone, but watching Corso don the Duck Head during the broadcast ESPN College Gameday from Autzen last Saturday was too much fun. Sadly his pick was wrong (I was warned by a Bear fan standing next to me having the Duck head picked was a bad sign). The experience however, was magical. The excitement in the air was so thick - and despite the heartbreaking last minute loss at the 1 yard line - it is a hard game to hang your head down after, one of the most exciting I have ever seen. Didn't sit down for four quarters and literally yelled "O" through every defensive down. Favorite signs? 'Herbstreet is hot, but Corso is Morso" that and the t-shirt I must find: "Our mascot can kick your mascot's ass."
