2009 in Review: October

Everyone is a moon and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody. - Mark Twain

October was full of dressing up and good company. I kicked off the month with a trip down to Natchez to host pilgrimage tours on the front porch of Rosalie. This was my first time to do a pilgrimage, and I have to admit that I didn't want the front porch. But the tourists were very nice and put up with my cheat sheet - Rosalie is on the National Historical Register, so I had to be careful what stories I told - and I met very nice people from as far away as Australia and Japan.
On the 20th we headed up to Little Rock to attend my cousin David's beautiful wedding. Mike forgot his pants.
And on the 3rd we drove up to Starkpatch to see Tech whoop up on MS State. Made it worth having to endure those damn cowbells and the temporary deafness they caused. Of course all of our friends were State fans, and we appreciated their generous company and letting us Techies tailgate with them.

Mike was Clint Eastwood's character The Good from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly for Halloween. I was a German bar wench, complete with authentic costume purchased in Munich. Dante loved playing with Mike when he was wearing his poncho.

Mike and I attended homecoming at Millsaps. The bloody marys were delicious.
And we went to the Maize Maze in Canton for the first time. It was a hoot. A big hoot. I laughed myself silly.
