Good morning!  In two hours I need to pick up  my sister, Lois, for a late season camping trip.  When we went to Alaska this summer, we promised her we'd take her out for a weeks vacation when we came back, and this is the first her schedule and our schedules have permitted the trip.  We are going to four different Minnesota State Parks for two nights at each of them.  I don't know if I'll be able to update, although if my cell works I should be able to post. 

Do any of you  folks keep track of Minnesota sports?  What a weeked we've had!  Saturday our Gophers met the Badgers in the border battle (Minnesota/Wisconsin).  The Gophers lost, but this game always generates a lot of excitement.  Then yesterday our wonderful Twins beat Kansas City to cause a playoff game with Detroit for the title.  The Twins have come from behind in a late season flurry of wins and have caused much excitement!  Go Twins!

Then today is the game of games.  The Minnesota Vikings meet their biggest rivals, the Green Bay Packers.  This is always the biggest game of the season, made much bigger this year by St. Favre leaving the Packers and going to the Vikings.  The media has been hyping this game for days now, and I just heard that the pre-game show starts at 4:30 for a 7:30 game! 

Okay.  Back to the first paragraph of this post and you'll see we will be camping!  I was expecting hubby to cancel the trip, or at least postpone our departure for a day, when he realized that this was the big game on Monday night football.   But he fooled me!  We recently switched from cable to dish.......and he bought an extra dish so he could be portable.  Do you think he was planning ahead to this game?  So he plans to be all set up in the campground, ready for his 6  hours in front of the TV watching St. Favre meet his old team for the first time.  Should be fun, even if it's going to be cold and rainey.

Hope you enjoyed the game.Yea Brett! My college bud did good. Too bad all the sports coverage was blasting him. He showed them what he is made of. Glad the Vikings have him!

I'd like to be on the sports team naming committee. Surely there is something better than the Gophers!?! Enjoy your camping trip!
