Track Town USA: We had a busy, interesting day. Foggy and cold. I had to work this morning, shipping orders and adding new writers to my RV Travelogues website. Dave had meetings at the U all afternoon about track & field. He said everyone at the U of O Athletic Department is just exhausted after the big football weekend... and Stanford had the week off. Next week will be really tough.
I am not even worried.
After a very bad diet all weekend... mac & cheese, chips, Jack Daniels, a little Halloween candy, pizza... it was time for a healthy veggie stir fry for lunch today.
I had a martini instead.
After dinner, the earring search continued. DT used a screwdriver to remove a "hidden panel" under the bathroom sink. Using a flashlight, he searched behind the cabinet and after about ten minutes located the missing jewel! Yeah, Daddy! Lisa and I would be devastated if the earring had been lost. How something that small could cause so much trouble is beyond me.
Now an important announcement: Late this evening, one of My Dear Readers, Chris C. (bless you), left a message on my blog that the Magna Peregrinus is highly visible at the beginning of the ESPNU video shot during the Oregon v USC tailgate. I looked at the video two or three times yesterday and NEVER NOTICED MY OWN MOTORHOME. (Okay, I never said I was a genius and never forget I am sight-impaired and not really very clever at all.)
Anyway... if you want to look at the video again, with a new vista... click on the ESPNU Road Trip website, go to Matchup 05, POSTGAME WEBISODES, sit through the Wing Street ad and fast-forward to the 44 second portion to see our bus (with the Big O on the back)... then fast-forward to 1:58 to see our tailgate party... which consists of a cop in gold lamé hot pants dancing with Jenn Brown.
Trust me on this.
Until my next update, I remain, your idiot correspondent.
