It is the most wonderful time of the year

There is nothing better than October Friday nights in Oklahoma. What is there not love?  Football, crisp nghts and a full bright moon are all perfect element to building a fall evening. It is cool enough to wear a long sleeve shirt but not cold enough freeze your fingers.

I wish it could stay fall forever. Bring on the hot chocolate, apples, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkins. I am ready to leave summer in the dust.

Here are some pictures from my fall night at the Shawnee vs. Carl Albert football game.
