• Ragman,

    I'll grant that football hasn't been our strong suit. We finally wised up and recruited a quarterback from Austin. He led the Jayhawks to an Orange Bowl victory last year. Remember that?

    Even so, Kansans say there are two seasons: basketball and recruiting. How about that national championship victory over Memphis? I could watch Mario Chalmers' last-second shot all day.

  • Arlene,

    Thanks. I recall seeing a column, but I guess I didn't realize it meant this number of  butterflies.

    As for the Longhorns vs. Aggies, I'm a Jayhawk. Rock chalk.

  • Chis, yes, Ro actually did do a column on these butterflies a week or two ago.  I think he called them snout-nosed butterflies.  The increase is caused by a long period of drought followed by rain.  P.S.  What happened to "Hook 'em Horns?"  You haven't crossed to the dark side, have you?

  • I was over in Alabama with my Crimson Tide friends and we watched the UA, UGA game on TV Sat.
    We had a grand time as the Crimson Tide put a full coverage coat on the BullDogs. I text message a couple of UGA friends who were at the game to rib them and WOW, they went off. Those bulldogs are just as thinskinned as the Longhorn T sippers over here.
    They wondered why I picked on them. I said, because you are easy targets just like those steers with the Aggies.

    Roll Tide, for my friends.
