Tonight is Homecoming between Oak Grove and Odessa! It has been a rivalry for years! Oak Grove Panthers meet the Odessa Bulldogs tonight at Homecoming!!
On our local channel 9 each week has the Game Of the Week!! The station received 36,000 votes this week and 19,000 were for the Oak Grove - Odessa game!! This means that our local hero Lenny Dawson from the Glory Years of the Chiefs will be at the game tonight reporting live on the 10:00 news. I always went to all the games when my son Bill played football .#30
Kelly was in the band we went again to the games. She was a trumpet player.
This afternoon was the big Homecoming parade! Nancy just loves getting the candy and she had so much that all the kids threw to her from the floats. We took little sandwich bags and filled them with candy and took the extra out to the folks at the library. Karen snapped these pictures with her cell phone and I am not a computer whiz so I don't know how to make them larger!

I am so happy you had a good time. Our school's homecoming was last night to. They have a parade on the football field before the game.

Love and hugs,

I don't think you can make the cell phone pictures bigger- that's just how they are.
Love the pictures anyways! Looks like you had a great time.

OGHS! Go Panthers! Love that fall weather - too bad I wasn't there.

Such great memories for me marching that homecoming parade as a flag corp girl. WHY I was NOT homecoming queen is just beyond me??!!?? HA!

Does Nancy still have any candy left from the parade? I think of Nancy each time I go into Walgreens and see all the Halloween treats out!

(Your favorite!)
