Getting Ready for Homecoming

Tomorrow is Homecoming 2009 at the University of Alabama - "A Return to Glory" is the theme. Here are some of the sights around campus today
Lawn decorations on Sorority Row, windows painted on the "strip", a city of tailgating tents on the quad, the Million Dollar Band practicing, wood piled high for the bonfire & pep rally tonight, and even a cute Bama scooter in front of the Locker Room store.
And, just in time, the rain has finally stopped and it actually feels like FALL. It couldn't be a better weekend in Tuscaloosa!!! ROLL TIDE ROLL!!

Thanks for the post! I've had the flu all week so I haven't had a chance to get out and see any of the Homecoming decorations. Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day!

Aw, Judi, I'm so sorry you're sick!
I had the flu a couple of weeks ago and it was NO FUN. I'm posting some pics of the parade today. Hope you feel better soon!
Roll Tide!!!

I'm in this picture! I'm a member of the Million Dollar Band Colorguard. I am front and center of the flags wearing the grey jacket. I really love your blog, especially the historic downtown pictures.

AmandaJean, Thanks for stopping by. Glad I caught you. It was literally a drive by picture. I tried to get the band in the parade but just at the WRONG moment, my camera batteries died. BOO!
It was a great weekend. Thanks for the blog compliment!

I'm jealous of your homecoming celebration! I never was able to make it to mine, and now I live vicariously through others. I can picture all the tailgating tents, the classic band music, and the must have bonfire.
