The 'Tall Firs' are back

My beloved Oregon Ducks are in  the final four for the first time since they won it all in 1939.  This meme is from the old Oregon Trail video game, one of the oldest around....my eldest played it in the mid-eighties. Oregon beat Kansas, the number one seed, by 14 points.



The weather is gradually warming here, the snow is gone from my lawn, it was 23 this morning and by noon it'll be 50 and people will be frolicking in the streets.

  1. That warmth may be heading this way in a couple of days. Try not to use it all up before it gets here, please.

    1. No worries, it was snowing lightly a few minutes ago, but not sticking.

  2. Good for the Ducks. My brackets are busted now, but watching this dance is a great joy. The unexpected happens.

    1. My ideal scenario at the moment is that both UO and Gonzaga win their games, and meet for the championship.

  3. I can't say "Oregon Ducks" without giggling. It sounds like a cartoon team. Not that I have any knowledge of them or any other sports team.

    We have a couple of days coming up where the low will be just below 50.

    1. Yeah, 'quack quack' ain't much of a battle cry, is it? The forecast high this week is 48.

  5. Do you suppose there's any chance of them signing Devin Booker?

  6. I don't follow basketball, but do follow the sun. It is rumored that it might appear today and that definitely is a win.

  8. I remember that game! the video game, not the 1939 game...
    You gotta be used to cold weather when 50 degrees is cause for frolicking.
