Anybody need any boxes?
I'm so sore from moving activity I can hardly stand up, but I have to say that we made good progress over the long weekend. Getting all the audio/video systems hooked up, all the cabling buried into the baseboards, and our new plasma hung up on the wall kept me from taking in many football games, although I did slap together a temporary system and catch the GT Yellow Jackets stomp some Notre Dame ass. It appears Army has blown it once again with their coaching choice and insists that they will somehow find a way to run a pro-set passing dominated offense instead of doing what the other service academies do and run the option. The cadets got beat by the Akron Zips 22-14. It wasn't as close as the score. The Terps, Penn State, and Clemson all won so I'm feeling pretty good about week one. Michigan leaned a lesson about scheduling cupcakes for home openers.
Mrs. Alva and I kept our date night plans and drove up to Decatur's Eddie's Attic to catch Tommy Wommack and Peter Case. We employed our niece Caroline as babysitter for the first time and it worked out well. Caroline got an iPod for her birthday not too long ago and only had 27 songs on it thus far. We paid her in iTunes gift card credits and she was happy as a clam. Peter Case played his third set of the day after a couple of appearances at the Decatur Book Festival and although he looked a little tired, he rocked his and our asses off. He didn't play a single song in standard tuning the whole night opting for his perfected Mississippi John Hurt style picking. The guy indeed makes a guitar sound like a band. And that voice!!! His set well represented his catalog girth with songs from his first to his latest. A great date night it was.
