2007 Liberty Bowl Champs!!

GO DAWGS GO!!!! UCF 3 - MSU 10! It was a defensive battle that the Dawgs finally managed to win. UCF never got to the red zone but MSU was able to get a TD thanks to the leaping ability of #24 Anthony Dixon. Our record this season is 8-5! We were the first SEC bowl game and the first to win!

Let's go Dawgs!

I know WVa scored 31 pts on us in the first quarter BUT once our defense woke up, they scored only 7 pts the rest of the game. Go Defense! Hope they get to work earlier in the game against UK this week as that's another tough game on the road - and I'll be in the stands cheerin on my Dawgs!

They were just a bit too tough

MSU couldn't quite hang on with Tenn. but did a GREAT job trying!! Tn really had a tough time keeping ahead of us during this game but in the end, the score is all that matters (unfortunately)! The fans stayed in the game throughout the majority of the game but one thing fans did that was WRONG....they should NEVER have booed one of our players. When Michael Henig came out to play for the injured Wesley Carroll (who had a concussion), State fans booed him. For crying out loud....he's playing with a broken hand, cut him some slack!! He didn't expect to play against Tenn. but somebody had to go in for Carroll. I noticed that he played without his protective glove on so his hand was probably even more sore and swollen then had he worn his glove. I say, cheer on the Dawgs no matter what!!! I do grumble when players make bad plays or don't play as well as I think they should but I NEVER boo a player (at least our players). GO DAWGS!!!
How about the LSU/KY game? WoW! Thought LSU was going to go the entire year without getting beat but KY was just too tough for them to handle!

Saturday, October 06, 2007


is THE league. I mean...what other game can you find the #1 team in the nation playing the defending national champions and be behind the entire game and then win it??!! LSU was behind Fla. the whole game but hung there and won! They will probably remain #1 as USC got beat today!


Whew! The whole first half wasn't very well played but we took care of business in the second half - beat UAB 30-13! GO DAWGS!!!!
Watching LSU get beat by Fla right now....

I'm sad....

My Dawgs lost to SC today 38-21. If it weren't for that blocked punt...... I think Spurrier proved today why he's the most hated coach in the SEC. Once again, the game was over, down to 45 sec. and he went for another TD. He just has to put more points up to prove how good he is... Tubberville isn't much better.

WoW! Did you see...

the Alabama - Arkansas game??? What a game!!! Arkansas battles back from behind to take the lead but with 8 sec. left in the game, Bama scores and wins - 41-38! Bama is now 3-0 with Nick Saban at the helm....


Our first winning season (so far) in quite a few years. We beat Auburn at Auburn 19-14 and what a finish it was! Auburn had the ball on the 9 yard line, goal to go and couldn't do it!!!!! GO DAWGS!!!!

Makin Waves

How about that Dawg performance this weekend?? The second half was awesome and showed that the defense was capable of playing an entire game not just the first half! Sorry Tulane but this was our game!!! GO DAWGS!!!!
It was a rather humbling experience to think that we were in the SuperDome where so many people were stuck after Hurricane Katrina. There were tiles still missing on the ceiling (I doubt they'll fix those) and to think that our seats may have been used by some unfortunate person.....WoW!

Sunday, September 02, 2007


No one really expected us to beat LSU but to get shut out by them??? Phooey!!!! 45 - 0!! Oh well, we'll bounce right back and beat Tulane in the Dome next week and then we'll be off to the races!! GO DAWGS!!!!!

Soooo close I can almost hear it

Only 4.5 days till kickoff and I can hardly wait. I hope we at least give LSU a run for their money - GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 weeks off

Whew! Two weeks goes by soooooo fast! I can hardly believe that I've got to go back to work on Monday. Week 1 was spent at the Breaks Interstate Park in Breaks, Va. This is up in the Appalachian Mountains and has some awesome views! I did a little hiking while there and got to see quite a few deer (or maybe the same ones over and over) - I did see my first buck while there! These animals weren't afraid of humans and didn't run away, even when a vehicle pulled up. The first time I went hiking (I went twice), a snake of unknown type crossed the trail in front of me - needless to say, I was busy standing still just in case or I would have taken a picture of it! Week 2 was spent in Birmingham, Al with my sister-in-law and 2 nieces. My brother was in Peru for 3 weeks and got back Tues. night. The girls have sure grown!
I can hardly wait - its now under a month till football season!! GO DAWGS GO!!!

Coach Croom at the Starkville Public Library

Coach Sylvester Croom, head football coach at Ms. State University, was the celebrity reader at the Starkville Public Library. He read 2 books to the kids - one book was about the Bulldogs, "Mad for Maroon" by Starkville native, Laurie Parker. The kids all enjoyed him and asked several good questions at the end. I enjoyed it as well!
Here's a video of him reading "Mad for Maroon"

Can't wait...

Just a bit over a month now till LSU visits us and our football season gets under way! Let's Go BullDAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Dawgs are comin home from Omaha! The Dawgs just couldn't handle the Louisville Cardinals and lost at the College World Series today 11-4. GO DAWGS!!!

Monday, June 11, 2007

Omaha! Here we come!!!

Fans in Bulldawg territory are pretty pumped right now as our Dawgs earned the right to go to the College World Series in Omaha!!! Oh yeah! WHO LET THEM DAWGS OUT????? On the way to a 2 game sweep over Clemson, we set an attendance record at the first game and then turned around and beat that record at game 2! Not bad for a team chosen to finish dead last in the SEC!! And what happened to that other school to the north of us????? heehee!!!!

Made a new friend today

Isn't he cute??? From what I've found on the net, its a mudsnake (if I'm wrong, please let me know, closer shots on my flickr account, look-up tkdgirlms). A friend and I went out to the Refuge today and took lots of pictures.

Hannah Grace Roberts

My new niece was born at 2:41 am Sat June 2, 2007 and her name is Hannah Grace. She is 19 in. 6 lb 7 oz. She is almost the same size as my other niece Naomi who was 19 in and 6 pounds even when she was born 2 years ago. We drove over at midnight that night so no sleep for us!

Buenos tardes!

Hola! I'm back from the Mexican cruise (sadly) and had a pretty good time. I went with Karen and her 3 kids, a friend of her son's, and a friend of her daughter's (and her mother and friend). The only thing I can say bad was the boat was too small and you could really feel it movin! We ran into high winds and lots of waves on Sun and lots of people got sick, I got a little nauseous but never quit eating or had to take drugs. It rained a whole lot on the cruise but we had fun in spite of it! In Costa Maya, I went horseback riding at the Rancho Gallinolas. In Cozumel, we went around shopping and ate at Casa Denis. Go to youtube for some Mexican music. We were seranaded a couple of times while eating. I have my pictures up on flickr - just search tkdgirlms. All in all, it was a good time!

Well, we're not on fire here in Starkville, Ms but we do have a lot of smoke from the fires in Fla/Ga. Made the mistake of sitting outside at lunch today because it really didn't seem so bad but I was wrong! My lungs and throat have felt like they were on fire all afternoon - it doesn't help that I have asthma. I'll be driving down to Mobile tomorrow with friends to go on our cruise to Mexico, so I reckon we'll be driving into a lot of smoke down that way - glad I refilled my asthma medicine today! You can sorta see the smoke in this picture I took this afternoon.
My new niece or nephew could be here soon - they went to the hospital last night but it was a false alarm. Guess I won't be around for the birth of this one either - when my niece was born, I was at a meeting and had to come home early so I could drive over to Birmingham, Al to see her. Check out this short video clip of her - Picture dancing. When you get to youtube, I have a few other clips of her as well.

Its here....

Its time for that summer vacation - only at the beginning of the summer instead of the middle. Leave for Mexico on Sat. and come back on Thur. - cruisin with Carnival this year! Also, my sis-n-law is due June 11 but the little one could come at any time (she had the first about 3 weeks early) - hope its not while I'm on my cruise! Little Naomi will be a big sis now - she already has the baby bed in her room and refers to it as brother-sister's bed!

I'm in the grocery store today getting a prescription filled and getting a couple others things I need. I pay for it with my credit card only it says unauthorized???!!! I know there isn't a problem as I had just used it at the Dr's office today. Then I remembered that I had a voicemail from a security company about my cc - I didn't pay much attention cause I figured it was somebody thinking I was stupid enough to punch in my number for them to get. However, it was legitimate! Somebody, somewhere, somehow got my card number and was using it today - they used it at a gas station for over $170 (must be a VERY BIG car), then on to a carwash, and an electronics store...other then the gas station, they didn't spend much. Just $10 at the carwash and $10 at the electronics store. Kinda odd if you think about it! Anyway, they closed my account after allowing me to go ahead and make my purchase at the store. I'd love to know how they got my number - I've had my card the whole time and I tear up every receipt and every piece of junk mail related to cc or bank accounts.
As my bro says, Beware the gerbils!

Saturday, April 28, 2007


Karen and I did a 5k today - mostly walked but got a little running in as well! Took us 47.39 min. to complete it but we did the whole thing. It was fun!

New toy

I got a new toy yesterday and believe that I got a great deal on it! I was at Dirt Cheap and found an Everlast punching bag with boxing gloves, handwrap, and 60 min. dvd - normal selling total individually on Everlast site is about $164 but I paid $30! I'm selling the gloves, wrap, and dvd on Ebay as I won't use those and maybe I'll make back some of my $30 to make the set even cheaper. Gotta love Dirt Cheap!

Just spent several days in Augusta, Ga visiting relatives I hadn't seen in awhile - some I hadn't seen in 3 years but a couple, I hadn't seen in nearly 15 years (due mainly to them moving on). It was fun - my niece was with us and she seemed to enjoy the relatives and learning their names (Uncle Billy, Cafee (Cathy), TrIna...). Here's a picture of the cousins (including my sister in law and niece).

Long time

WoW! Didn't realize it had been that long since I last blogged - guess I don't have football anymore! Speaking of which, kick-off is Aug. 30 - just 5 months away!!! :) GO DAWGS!!!
Things are hoppin at the library these days - I have lots of boxes beside my desk. Our new computers have come in and will be set-up in a couple of days! Thanks to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we can replace our original computers donated by the same group nearly 10 years ago! With this upgrade, we are also going wireless in the library and it will be available to the public to use.

Here it is

Caribbean Reviews

Its final!

The Colts have won the SuperBowl 29-17! Peyton Manning got it done in Miami and his Colts are the winners! Rex Grossman and the Bears just couldn't pull it off.
So what did you think of the clip before the game of Peyton tango dancing?? :)

Sunday, January 21, 2007


And there we have it - the Bears and Colts are going to play in the Big game. I would rather have seen the Saints and Colts play but at least 1 of the 2 teams I picked are going. Go Colts!

How about the SEC???

LSU won the Sugar Bowl last week and put on an exhibition - what a game it was!! BUT how about the Florida Gators?? They are teaching Ohio State's Heismann trophy winner how to run and wiggle, but he's apparently a slow learner as they've sacked him several times tonight. Final score 41-14 - Fla. 2nd national championship in 100 years (both in the last decade). WoW!! Total offense: 82 yds. vs. 372 yds. Chris Leake went 25 of 36. Heismann trophy winner Troy Smith was just 4 of 14. Go Gators!
