Rerun--tailgating season

These pictures were taken in October, when we tailgated at Thompson's Halloween party.

Tailgating Season - Edit
September 16, 2008

Ahh, tailgating season is upon us. I have no idea if tailgating really has a season, but if it does, I'm sure it's autumn. I am a HUGE fan of the tailgate party. Jeff and I tried to start up a "tailgating for the school bus" Thursday and Friday morning routine in the neighborhood a couple years ago, but, sadly, it never caught on. Something to do with people on their way to work and not having time to hang out at the trunk of our car drinking coffee and having donuts, waiting for the school bus. Whatever.

A couple weeks ago at Joel's, a guest had a sweet grill set up on the back of his truck for tailgating. I went so far as to google "tailgate grill for Durango". Are you kidding me? When would I ever use that? Then again, if I had one, when wouldn't I use it?

I think parties should have a start time and a tailgating time, an hour prior. So, say, party at six, but tailgating for the party starts at five in the cul-de-sac, street or driveway. I've told people that idea, but so far it hasn't caught on.

Must run. Jami is playing with neighbor kids and Jeff and Alex and some neighbor boys are playing football. Perfect time for icecream, tailgate-style, at the trunk of the Durango. Icecream will have never tasted so good!

Happy tailgating, friends!
