For better or worse

Postby billybud » Sun Sep 16, 2018 10:43 am

Being a life long fan of a team is like a marriage and you commit for better or worse (this year is one of those worse years)....you go through the years of feast knowing that a year of famine will eventually come.

Saying all that, Ms. Billy and I are celebrating FSU football and us today....38 years ago on September 16, we had our first date (to watch the FSU-Louisville game)...35 years ago in the evening of September 16, we gathered in front of friends to be married. We got up in the wee dark hours the next day to drive to New Orleans for a 2:30 kick off against Tulane....hit Bourbon Street after...and slept in and had a very late brunch the next day.

So...we will be going out with friends for brunch in a bit...and we'll raise a mimosa to the Noles and us...both until death do us part...such is love.

Some wise man once said, “The love of one’s life is forever.....”, you are indeed a fortunate man to have found two.

Happy Anniversary!!!

Best wishes to you both. And after all these years you are still going for a very late brunch.

Real angus is smaller and if it is finished out right has the best marbling. It is hard to get pure angus any more. They breed them with larger breeds to get more volume. Still the best beef in the world is only as good as the chef. You probably can't get prime because almost all retail stores carry Choice or select Choice angus can be very good if it is aged around 28 days.
