Thats what countless signs on the front doors of houses and businesses alike in our tiny town will say today.
One of the things about living in a tiny town is the community pride that they seem to have.
The parades and celebrations throughout the year are wonderful!
We'll throw a parade at the drop of a hat!
Little towns love parades.
Pick-up trucks and tractors hauling trailers that are decorated with brightly colored paper streamers and balloons.
Hay bales are makeshift seats for the Boy Scout Troop, Homecoming Court, Rodeo Kings and Queens, and even Santa Clause.
The high school marching band leads the way and the Volunteer fire truck brings up the rear with its loud siren blaring.
School lets out for the parades.
The opening ceremony/parade for the FFA (future farmers of America) rodeo is a school holiday in this little town!
Today is one of those days when community spirit is so strong you can smell it in the air.
Our High School football team is playing in the state finals!
If you don't live in Texas, you may not understand...
You see, in Texas, High School Football is a HUGE thing!
It's bigger than the NFL.
It's bigger than Baseball.
The world revolves around Friday night football games in a small Texas town!
The Championship game is being played 4 hours away from here.
I truly think the Little-Foreman-in-Pink and I will just about be the only people left here during the game.
This is the farthest we have ever gone in football.
It would be great if we actually brought home the State Championship trophy!
Our little town has had a rough couple of years.
We are still recovering from Hurricane Ike...
This would be great!!
The Feed store will be closed.
The drug store will be closed.
The diner will be closed.
The mom & pop grocery store will be closed.
The streets will be empty.
All will be quiet.
Cause everybody will be...
"Gone To The Game!!"
ooooooh I can only imagine the parade we'll have if we win!
