Time Waster

Prayers to the families who lost loved ones in the shootings yesterday in Terrell.  I live about 3 blocks from one of the crime scenes.  I listened to everything as it was happening on the scanner.  Thankfully the shooter was captured without incident around 1:30 this morning.

Pumpkin Skills

I do not have one artistic bone in my body, but I like my STL carved pumpkin.  The World Series starts tomorrow night.  You can guess my pick to win.

Tonight is Homecoming for the Terrell Tigers football team.  Last night, Terrell ISD had a walking parade and pep rally at the football stadium.  I don't think I can remember when they have had any type of parade for homecoming.  It was fun, all schools and sports were involved. I don't know what the joke was, but it must have been good.

Fighting Tiger Band shines at Regionals

The Terrell Fighting Tiger Band performed last night in Mesquite at the UIL Region 3 marching competition.  They came away with a score of 1 which is great.  They moved on to the Area C competition on October 26 also at Mesquite Memorial Stadium.

Fair Day

Yesterday was the annual trip to the State Fair of Texas.  The threat of rain (it did) and the absence of the Marine Corps Band had me leaving my camera at home.  I took a few shots with my iPhone.

Forney Combat fund raiser

Last night the Forney Combat team held a fund raiser at the local Sweet Frog.  Forney Combat is made up of firefighters who compete against other teams in real life challenges.  The team recently qualified for the World Challenge in Las Vegas later this month.  I got there a little late, but I made my contribution by purchasing two raffle tickets for tickets to an upcoming Dallas Cowboys game and I was able to get a shot of one of the guys from the team.

Homecoming week

Today starts Homecoming week for the Terrell Tigers. Thursday is a big parade, pep rally and Friday night is the football game against Forney. Today's picture is courtesy of Cathy Turner Boyd.  She posted this last night on Facebook. The football field is in the center of the shot, a baseball field is where a car dealership now sits.

Weather change

Around noon yesterday the temperature dropped about 10 degrees in just a few minutes.  We were in the 60s the rest of the day.  It was nice.

Cheer and Tigerette night

Last night was cheer and Tigerette night at the football game. The Tigers lost, but the little cheerleaders had fun going out on the field before the game cheering with the Tiger cheerleaders.

Tonight the Tigers host the Wranglers from West Mesquite.  Last night the Freshmen A team play West Mesquite and the Freshmen B team played North Forney.

Tigers Freshmen B team quarterback JP Black tried to escape from the North Forney defenders.

Bring on Fall

It's starting to get dark earlier, but it's still 90 degrees.

Tiger Tennis

I don't get the chance to take pictures of the tennis team because they usually start before I'm home from work.  Yesterday I made sure I made it over to the park before they finished.

They played the Creekview Mustangs.  I like the shadow from the Mustang player in this bottom shot.

Move it

Terrible time to run out of gas.

OK, the train was stopped and I still had gas. I just caught this as I was passing over the tracks...details, details.
