Cuckoo Ain't Just a Clock in Val's Kitchen

It looks like Val was the only one who didn't attend the Sooners game yesterday to see The Pony walk out on the field to be honored for his National Merit Scholar(ship).

Okay, there were 85,000 in attendance, and chances are that some of them were there for other reasons than to watch The Pony. I know, right? What were they thinking?

Make that crowd 85,000 plus one. And the ONE was definitely there to see The Pony.



 "A ladybug landed on me just now."

Text and picture courtesy of The Pony, who was sitting on a bench by the stadium, waiting to meet up with the National Merit group for their walk-on. It landed on his gray slacks, and crawled up onto his red National Merit Scholar shirt they were given at the dinner that Friday night he moved in. The shirt he left laying on the dinner table, making Hick run after him to give it back.



Quite the coincidences our family seems to have with the ladybugs...

  3. I think the lady bug is your mother's spirit not wanting to miss this event.

    1. Those ladybugs show up at the darnedest times. We go months without one. Then BOOM there it is.

  4. Did the lady bug arrive at 11:11?

    1. No, at 2:00. Whatever that means. If it's bad, don't tell me!
