I'm starting this blog with a salute to a special angel, who is today sitting in heaven with a huge grin on his handsome face....my Dad!
The University of Oregon has gone to first place in the national college football league, a FIRST for any Oregon college team! The season has just begun but, if, they continue to play as they have the U of O has a pretty good chance of being in the playoffs for the national title.
The story goes, that when my folks first moved to Oregon in 1939, my Dad, who loved football, wanted to support one of Oregon's football teams......at that time Oregon State was the program to beat....and Oregon was struggling. Typical of my Dad, he went with the under-dog, so for 50 years he was a staunch supporter of U of O football. He passed away in 2000, at 92 years of age.
He was never able to attend college, but no alumni could have been more supportive of his school, than my Dad was of the U of O. He went to as many games, as possible, or listened to them on the radio or T.V. The year they played in the Rose Bowl, he was there!
So until this football season ends, my Dad's hat is going to sit on top of the T.V. so he will have a front row seat!
In the meantime and on to other things happening in Oregon, I've redone a the small oak table I use for an end table and given it a more "fall-ish" look!
I filled an old baking powder can (how about that price) with some of my dried hydrangeas, added some worn old books and a birds nest full of rubber stamps, from the day!
and A Stroll Thru Life's Tabletop Tuesday ! Remember I love to hear from you, thanks for stopping by.
