Visit to Vandy

Last week included a trip to Nashville to check out Vanderbilt’s campus.  Syd had already been there, but this was my first time to make the trip.  We had the opportunity to have lunch with the coaches in The Commons on campus, met with another coach, watched shoot around, got information about the academic side of things and took in a very entertaining game against Florida.

Sitting that close to a D1 women’s game showed how physical the game can be.  I really see why the strength coaches are on staff.  You need to be able to take the hits once you get in the lane.

The campus was beautiful and the facilities are nice. Looking forward to seeing it when it is warmer outside.

The game went into OT with a nice win for the Lady Dores.

Thanksgiving in Nashville

Thanksgiving this year was a quick trip to Nashville where my sister lives. The upside was that all my siblings were there; the downside was that only Joe, Syd and I made the trip. Cheryl hosted her family for the first time this year.

Niece Riley turned three earlier in the month and was a great hostess.  She really warmed up to Syd and my niece Taylor.








Krista (and her husband Jason) were great hosts.  We had fried turkey again and it was tasty.  This was a good picture of Krista and Riley.  Who loves her mommy????








Dad discovered that his grandkids are getting pretty tall.  (Uncle Andy is lurking in the background).








It was a quick trip, but a good time to be with the family.
