On The Bricks

October 6, 2014

Last weekend was a record maker for me. In the morning I attended 3 innings of the OPSU baseball scrimmage. That was great. Especially so because there were people sitting around in their winter coats, scarves, and those hats that cover the ears things. A little chilly, it was.

Then I ran over to Guymon to watch the grandson in the last half of his soccer game. Watching all those little kids run around like that is always good for the soul. And I liked their shirts, neon green. Cool.

As soon as it was over, I headed back to the baseball game, driving around the OPSU Homecoming parade line-up. Drove home because it was time for a little sit still and be quiet. Had to drive through some cones to get out of Goodwell and barely missed the Texhoma Fiesta parade.

Quiet lunch at home, thinking I could have gone to either barbecue, Texhoma Fiesta Days or the OPSU one. Was back on campus by 1 for the OPSU Homecoming football game. By then there was not a winter coat and muffler to be seen. It was time now for the sunscreen. Awesome game, big win, got to see some folks from back in the day …

Now, for me, that was the first time I ever attended three different sports games in one day. I feel like I should letter for that work!

Fun times. There are so many of those college kids that are just starting their adult lives. What advice would you give them?

Wise words by George Washington Carver might be in line. “How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”

The Chamber Banquet is Oct. 7th and tickets are for sale from the Chamber. Call Jada at 338-3376. It is always a good evening … especially when you learn who Citizen of the Year is.

The Guymon Community Theater production “Blue-Haired Belles” is happening and the Main Street Mob is going to be there at 7 on Oct. 10th. It is supposed to be funny. A great place to go for a mere $8 ticket.

The YMCA Superhero Run is on Oct. 11. For more information call 580-461-9942.

The month has started so stellar. We’ll just keep it right along those lines!

See you on the bricks!
