It's Football Time in Tennessee

Well, well, well..... looks like it's going to be the St. Louis Cardinals against the Detriot Tigers in the World Series. I knew it, I just knew it.... wooooooooooooooo GO CARDS!!!!!!

All week, I have promised the Duck that I had a new Duckmaster outfit and that I was ready to put it on... just to keep him in line.... Well Ducky here it is....... Of course, this is just one of many that I ordered.... More to come next week.

And this just in..... I couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing.... I do believe that it's that Damm Duck trying to bribe the wife of a St. Louis Cardinal.... see.... just like a Damm Duck.... If he can't do it one way he will try another... Just look....

My prediction - CARDINALS IN 4!!!!!!!

It's Football Time in Tennessee!!!! Oh yeah it is.... Tennessee vs. Alabama... all I've got to say is ...... ROCKY TOP YOU'LL ALWAYS BE HOME SWEET HOME TO ME.... GOOD OLE' ROCKY TOP.........WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.... ROCKY TOP TENNESSEE.... ROCKY TOP TENNESSEE...... GO VOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It should be a good game. I know there are a lot of Roll Tide Fans out there... but I'm not going to hold that against you. I still love ya anyway.....

A few quick Halloween facts that I found:

Why are pumpkins a Halloween tradition?

Using pumpkins as lanterns at Halloween is based on an ancient Celtic custom brought to America by Irish immigrants. All Hallows' Eve on October 31 marked the end of the old Celtic calendar year. On that night, hollowed-out gourds with candles inside were placed on windowsills to welcome home spirits of deceased ancestors and to ward off evil spirits, including a restless soul named "Stingy Jack."

Why do we don masks and silly costumes for Halloween?

Believing that spirits and ghosts roamed the land on All Hallows' Eve, the ancients Celts wore costumes and masks to avoid detection by these ghosts.

What's with the door-to-door begging for candy?

Have you ever wondered how trick-or-treating began? On All Hallows' Eve, the Celts would leave food on their doorsteps to keep the hungry ghosts from entering their homes.

Did you know...

Black cats were once believed to be witch's assistants who protected their powers.
Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange represents the fall harvest, and black is associated with darkness and death.

And the joke for today........

Little Johnny's neighbors had a baby. Unfortunately, the baby was born without ears.

When the Mother and new baby came home from the hospital, Johnny's family was invited over to see the baby. Before they left their house, Little Johnny's dad had a talk with him and explained that the baby had no ears.

His dad also told him that if he so much as mentioned anything about the baby's missing ears or even said the word "ears" he would get the spanking of his life when they came back home. Little Johnny told his dad he understood completely.

When Johnny looked in the crib he said, "What a beautiful baby."

The mother said, "Why, thank you, Little Johnny."

Johnny said, "He has beautiful little feet and beautiful little hands, a cute little nose and really beautiful eyes. Can he see?"

"Yes", the Mother replied, "we are so thankful; the Doctor said he will have 20/20 vision."

"That's great," said Little Johnny, "cuz he'd be sh*t-outta-luck if he needed glasses.
