Bad news: We a bit farther away from tailgating activities.
Good news: Plenty of good concrete sidewalks for dog walking.The sun was bright and temperatures were nice. We went about setting up an outside patio area, taking Ozzie and Lexie for long walks and generally enjoyed being on campus. Rain is predicted for Saturday, probably beginning around gametime and lasting through Sunday night at least with cool weather following.
Lynn and Helen came down from Birmingham Friday and Lindsey was returning too, to work her stadium boxes for the game Saturday. We met them at Lindsey's dorm so Wayne could help take a small TV table upstairs for Lindsey. After, we drove home and waited for them to come out to see us and watch the Arkansas-LSU game. Wayne bought two game tickets for Cam and Amy from the neighbor in the camping trailer down the street. The afternoon was great fun and we enjoyed good eats. Cam called to say they would stop at a motel for the night and planned to arrive early Saturday morning to avoid gameday rush. Lynn, Lindsey and Helen were gone by early evening and we settled in for the evening.

Cam and Amy arrived later than expected Saturday and we enjoyed a good visit with them before they walked to the stadium for 2:30 kickoff.

The expected rain had not arrived even by Sunday morning. The temperatures were mild and the sky was overcast when we took a drive around campus to see the remains of gameday. Surprisingly, cleanup crews had made great progress and trash was being managed with efficiency.
|Day after. Remarkably clean.|
|There's a great deal of good organization in the cleanup process. |
They have lots of experience.
|Where "it all happens"... Jordan Hare Stadium.|

The trees are expected to die. Here they are protected from the crowds by a barricade.
|Toomer's Corner is a "must" for every Auburn fan and visitor.|

By noon we had pulled away from our site on Devall Street and were on our way back to Chewacla for a few more days. Lexie's dental appointment at the University Small Animal Clinic will take all day on Wednesday, November 30. We'll leave Auburn after that.
