Time for Rainbow Summer School again. Mrs. Matlock will be proud - I was on time this week! It's not too late to register for class. Come visit everyone at Jenny Matlock - Off On My Tangent. This is a really fun group!
This week our color is Indigo Blue. Last week I shared pictures of our beautiful blue skies here in Texas. This week I'll prove that our Indigo evening skies are just as wondrous. So join me on a little tour of a typical Texas weekend in the fall.
Start the weekend off right with a small town high school football game. And in Texas, the half time show and the band are almost as important as the game! This was actually taken at a Marching competition. At a real game, there would not be an empty seat in the stadium. We used to joke that if you wanted to get away with something, best do it on Friday night. Because EVERYONE is at the game! And I know that the sky is not yet Indigo in this shot. But the drum major's uniform is! (Yes, that's our Cait)
If you're lucky enough to have connections (like a former player on the 69 National Champion Longhorns), you might score tickets to a Longhorn game for your Saturday entertainment.
If football's not your thing (I don't think you should admit that if you live in Texas), you could make a night visit to the State Capitol.
Just a note. If you lay on the floor to get a really neat shot of the inside of the dome, the DPS officers guarding the Capitol are likely to smile, shake their head, and walk the other way. I guess they figured we were a bit nuts, but basically harmless!
On your way home, stop and take a spooky shot of Grace Heritage Church - just off the square here in Georgetown. PJ, this shot is just for you!
Hope you enjoyed your tour of a Texas fall weekend.
