Still enjoying the beautiful weather, however the wind is suppose to change this evening and come from the north, and also a twenty degree drop in temperature. By morning guess we will be hunting a jacket. Oh well it will be October in a few hours so we have to look for a drastic change.

I recently found an old column written by John Walker about high school mascots. In it he mentioned the Winters Blizzards and Hamlin Pied Piers as being logical mascots. Years ago I did a column on the only unicorn mascot in the state. That was in New Braunfels. A couple of my favorite mascots are the Trent Gorillas and the Crane Cranes. Big Spring High School’s boys’ teams are called Steers. The girls’ teams are called Lady Steers.

Mind you, I am no scholar. Just needed to dig a little deeper after watching fiction overload of murder mysteries.
