Virginia Safari Park

No, she does not live in Blacksburg, but in nearby Natural Bridge and she seems to wish her child would get an apartment of its own.  Seems worse than having your adult child live in the basement.

Football Colors

In the football game today the colors were confusing to regular fans such as me.  The Va. Tech colors are orange and  maroon and it is the Visitor, Bowling Green University, that is wearing the orange shirts.  Va. Tech, the home team, is in white.
