Football, Travel and Fall Colors

I just watched Texas Tech pull out a win against Texas. It was quite a game. It was exciting to the last second on the clock. It's too bad the Aggies aren't having such a good season but they did beat Colorado today.

Tomorrow I'm headed for the DFW area for the Texas Cattle Feeders Convention. It will be held at the Opryland Hotel on Lake Grapevine. From there I will head home on Tuesday to spend the night in my own bed before heading to Colorado Springs on Wednesday for the Beef Summit. It will be lots of travel from now through mid-December. But, I guess it's been lots of travel for the last few weeks.

The weather here has been nearly perfect for the last few days and is expected to be the same for the next week or so. The high temps have been in the low 80's and the lows have been in 40's and 50's. It has been great for creating good color in the trees. The red oaks below are in our front yard.

This week, the trees are really starting to show great colors in B/CS as well.

Were you able to hear the speech by Richard Fisher at the convention? If so, thoughts?

Richard Fisher, President of FRB, Dallas, impressed me. His speech was both informative and interesting -- and well delivered. I'd like to see him replace Bernanke.

That was the best game I saw this year so far...Congrats to your senator. I felt Mc Cain gave the classiest concession speech I have ever heard..

Take care in your travels.

The tree in the photo is beautiful with its changing leaves.

Thank you Barbara. I am in Colorado Springs right now and it is beautiful with snow on the Rockies to the west and the plains to the east. I am on the 12th floor of the Antlers Hilton and have a great view.
