We drove to Blacksburg for the Vet School Homecoming at Virginia Tech this weekend. Once we got out of the brutal northern Virginia traffic, it was a great weekend. We had gorgeous weather, great seats for the VT-Ohio game, guest passes to the world-famous Newkirk tailgate, and a chance to catch up with some of my classmates and visit our old haunts. Mark got to experience the "BAM" (big a** mug) at PK's Pizza, although his was filled with root beer. Kim and Johnny let us tag along with Daisy for dog fun at the cornfields (Sandy was sidelined due to a minor injury.) And we stopped on the way home at Home Place, where the family-style cooking is out of this world. Somehow, Mark fought off food coma and drove us safely home.
