Sorry about the photo quality but I was doing some “drive-by shooting” today with my trusty Olympus.
My friend Constance Walker, who lives in my most favorite house in Starkville, put out Thanksgiving decorations which consisted of two stuffed scarecrows and some pumpkins.
Knowing what devoted Mississippi State fans Constance and Carroll are, I did a double take when I drove by.
The characters from a distance look just Col. Rebel. Have my friends been closet Rebel fans all these years? I asked Constance and she was horrified.
“No! Those aren’t Col. Rebel,” she declared. But she went out and took a closer look. The big hat, the white goatee, the red and blue outfits, perhaps they do look like Col. Rebel, she admitted.
With the Egg Bowl tomorrow, I hope she gets them off the porch before someone hangs them in effigy.
