Princess and I spent most of Thursday morning on the phone making arrangements
to have Farmer Dad's tires taken care of and then met him at the tire place at noon
to leave his truck and drive him back to work. Happily, the best price I found was
very conveniently located near his job.We then went shopping for a birthday present
for our friends son who has a birthday party on Saturday.We did not find what we had in mind,
so we will look more. Upon our arrival home for a late lunch, there was a message from our friends
who are season tickets holders for Rutgers football. They had an extra ticket.
I called Farmer Dad and asked if he wanted to go, he said yes. I left a message for them.
Princess and I picked up Farmer Dad from work and brought him to the tire store, and
we were talking about going, and he said that I should go instead to spend time with my friend
and he would gladly watch it on tv at home with Princess. Yippee!
The seats were excellent...50 yard line first section..just high enough to see the field.
It was a great night for it too, clear, coolish breeze blowing in, the stadium was packed with fans...actual fans.
It was so nice to see that many people cheering the team on.What a change from all the years when they were not good, when we would go and most people were in the parking lot instead of in the stands.
(Unfortunately I forgot my camera!)
Very exciting! Did I mention I love football? Especially this time of the year...by the end of the season...well that depends on how my Giants are doing.lol I called home to check in during the 3rd quarter, and Princess was very happy to tell me she was fine and had looked for me on tv, but didn't see me.
Turns out they had a wonderful time on their own, dinner out, stopped by a local park to play and even checked out the attached Butterfly Park. She did fall down and skim her knee, but she was fine when I got home.
We read a couple of books to settle down for the night and she fell asleep on my lap.
Oh yeah, and Rutgers won!
