The KSU Homecoming Weekend Daily Cap(s) (300)

Road Trip!!!! My 30th college class reunion! You know you’re getting close to Manhattan (KS) when the water towers are properly adorned with the ‘Powercat’. Let the reminiscing begin.
A few stragglers from the Homecoming Parade…”the pride of Wildcat Land”
the famous Call Hall dairy sciences ice cream parlor – having a “Purple Pride” ice cream and a rush of fond memories of buying, back-in-the-day, a dozen eggs and a gallon of milk to feed the wife, FD, and me for $2….total. This one scope of ice cream, 30 years later, well…it cost me $3 so I ate it reeeaaaallll slooooowww with a grin on my face.
the true 1950’s-built barracks where we lived – aka married student housing – has been replaced with this….and they have the audacity to say “Founded 1957” for these apartments built 3 years ago?
A tavern in Aggieville – a reference/likeness to our beloved football coach? Only partially for sure!
Everyone that reads/follows my blog is encouraged to go vote and vote often for Rod – he’s my college classmate and all-around good guy (but he didn’t want me to walk the parade route with him for some reason).
Holy cow…only the paint color on the press boxes have changed. I happened upon Cico Park, home of my summer job umpiring unruly young men playing baseball for their all-knowing volunteer coaches (it was on the “blue” field that I tossed out of the game my first, and only, coach…and did so quite loudly and with a whole lot of theatre I might add).
Don’t we all end up taking a picture of our weekend accommodations? Or is it just me?

  1. The gridiron guys are doing well, aren’t they? I guess I can be convinced Bill Snyder is a bit of great coach; he returns and they’re back in the big time.


  2. Congratulations! Happy 30th… cliche but times a flyin! I graduated in ’78 – I’m always the old lady of the bunch. Have fun!
