I know folks who host an OSU tailgate but they combine forces with a Rutgers tailgate called Friends of Frank.  I think you can find them on FB.  In any event, they welcome Buckeyes, of course there is a donation required.

Favorite thread ever. Plus I now have a new idea for next year’s Halloween costume.

I love Rod Stewart so much.  Such a great live show, too.  I think I need to add his greatest hits to my Christmas list.

We usually just bring a blanket to sit on. Packs better in the suitcase since we fly.  One to sit on (keeps your rear from freezing) and one to put over our laps, should there be a lull in the action (or a long time out).  I have purchased many cushions from the Ohio Staters booth over the years but we never want to pack them for the return trip to Columbus.  There are some nice, warm, fuzzy, fleece OSU blankets that I recommend.  Even if you scalped seats with the fancy seat backs, blankets are never a bad choice.

“The Bier Stube is still there.”   Long live the stube! So familiar, but he skipped so many of my personal favorites.

Late boomer married to an early GenX. I’m the techie, such as it is. He won’t even carry his phone unless he absolutely must. Although I think we both identify much more by our MBTI personalities, especially the J ranking.

I’ve taken in a blanket to sit on and/or wrap up in.  You will need to unroll it enough so they can pat it down to make sure you haven’t concealed anythingy.  Also, if you have a bag small enough to fold up and put in a pocket, you can get that through security going in and it makes taking everything home easier.  Like one of those flat folding grocery bags that will fit in your cargo pants.

Three flags are apparently missing as well. It doesn't hold up as well as the Stanley Cup does.  It must have been some celebration.

The Mr. usually comes home and lists about 3 options and adds that he's up for anything else if I have a preference. I usually pick one of the 3 he's listed. We have a bit of a rotation/rut in any event, not like we're making big changes.  It might be taco Tuesday tonight.

Happy spouse, happy house.  (stole this from a friend)

Edit. What he said ^

Comment 22 Oct 2019

We kept separate accounts. We have some investments (mutual funds) that we both contribute to, and we each pay 1/2 the morgatge, but separate checking/savings/retirement accounts.  We have never fought about money (we are both fairly reserved with spending). In the beginning, I made more, but he's making more now (married 27 years).  It also helps that we don't have kids. One less thing to fight about.

I'm not much of a music fan, but familiar w/ Steve Cropper of the Blues Brothers movie. I had no idea who was in the band Booker T. and the MGs, but Green Onions was one of my favorite songs on the juke box at the Out R Inn in the early 80s.  Thanks for the happy memory on this fine Monday.
