Jade's A Vol

Jade is now officially a Volunteer Football Fan. She had the opportunity last Saturday to attend the SEC football game between the University of Tennessee and the University of Arkansas. This first picture shows her decked out in orange and white to support the Volunteers. This next picture shows Jade sitting by Kevin in the stadium. The third picture shows an awesome view of the stadium .

Many thanks to Kenneth Wilmoth for taking these pictures and sharing. Tennessee won the game 34-13. I think Jade's support helped!

This was Jade's first visit to the University of Tennessee campus and her first football game since she has been in the United States. As you may recall, Jade is an Exchange Student from Vietnam who is senior in high school this year. After graduation and return to Vietnam, she hopes to return to the USA to attend college. Beverly and I are her host parents in the US this year.

Joke of the Day
Ida Mae passed away and Bubba called 911. The 911-operator told Bubba that she would send someone out right away.

"Where do you live?" asked the operator.

Bubba replied, "At the end of Eucalyptus Drive."

The operator asked, "Can you spell that for me?"

After a long pause, Bubba said, "How 'bout I drag her over to Oak Street and you pick her up there?"
