One More Friend

We're home after a lovely visit to the mountains with the family. I've been introducing you to my new friends all week long, but have been holding someone back to lead us into the weekend.

Meet Riley...

Those of you who know me, or who have been paying attention, know that I am from the state of Michigan. Those of you who have been around long enough also know that I am a proud alumna of Michigan State University. On Easter Sunday, Riley treated me by wearing his lovely jersey...

Riley is apparently supporting the University of Michigan Wolverines in the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Riley's lucky jersey has worked for them so far, seeing as they have advanced to this weekend's Final Four tournament.

For Riley (and only Riley), I will allow this jersey on my blog. I might consider being happy for the team and its fans. But don't try leaving a "Go Blue" in the comments. My patience and grace can only be stretched so far.

As we like to say in our house, "Yellow and blue make green." GO GREEN! Even if they aren't still in the tournament... 

And Riley will be receiving a new and improved jersey in the mail as soon as I can find one in his size.


  1. YAY! SPARTANS! Those Farmers Play Good Ball! ;)

  2. at least the dog is cute - even if we can't approve of the jersey :)

  3. I had Michigan State going farther than Michigan -- even though, as an Illinois alum, choosing either was difficult! (I also had tOSU in the Final Four....)
