Me and Matthew tailgated with Auburn friends at the Samford Walking Trail. Lots of good conversations and a few sprained ankles took place on that trail. Definitely good to be back.
Me and Matthew again. I'm so thankful he puts up with my Auburn obsession. He even lets me sing the fight song, the Alma Mater and Glory, Glory to Ole Auburn to him. He even let me tell him the AU creed and only told me I was a moron once. lol
Speaking of the Auburn creed... it's probably my favorite thing ever.
I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I
earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.
I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.
I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.
I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities.
I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all. I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.
I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by "doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God."
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in
Auburn and love it.
