My “11/11/2021, VETERANS DAY (published 11/11/2021)” article (Thursday) included the “bet” – with apology to our Mom (Betty Lou Wood Ferrell, 11/24/1932 - 12/27/2000) – that I had made with my only veteran brother.

Which brother won the “bet?” Read on, to find out!

11/13/2021, Saturday: Georgia Bulldogs 41, Tennessee Vols 17

The unranked Tennessee Vols (my second favorite SEC college football team) lost, at home, on their homecoming, to my number one ranked Georgia Bulldogs (my favorite SEC college football team)! It was a 24 point win! It was a stomp! It was four points shy of having been a double stomp! My Georgia Bulldogs website has a PDF file of the game statistics. (Click “View Full Screen.”)

I'd like to see the Vols win, instead of lose, unless they are playing my Bulldogs! I do not have enough decades left to live, to see the Vols become competitive, for an SEC championship, or even a national championship. My Bulldogs remain, consistently, in the hunt. This year may be their year. We will see.


My youngest brother called, during the game. He doesn't care about college football anymore. I paused my very vocal, as Mrs. Appalachian Irishman can affirm, expressions. The eldest daughter of his wife and he has a high school basketball game at Gibbs High School, on the birthday anniversary of Granny Molly Gertrude Archer Ferrell (11/30/1882 - 6/11/1971), coming up on 11/30/2021, Tuesday. If power is in our bodies, Mrs. Appalachian Irishman will attend that game, to support the Cherokee High School girls basketball team, which includes our niece!

I had been waxing quite eloquent! I had the Bulldogs radio broadcasters on my home computer radio. I had our TV on the game (muted). It was great! The Vols (SEC 3-4, overall 5-5) caused my Bulldogs (SEC 8-0, overall 10-0) a little trouble in the first quarter only. My Bulldogs won another one! Ten wins and no losses! Best defense in college football! Go DAWGS!

My veteran brother called my cell phone (which was off), just as the game was ending. His voice mail stated: “Go DAWGS! Woof, woof, woof!” I called him back today, leaving him a voice mail. I hope he calls me back later today!

My veteran brother has his various “whatevers,” as gifted to him, by his eight-year service in the Air Force. He endures. I have my “whatevers,” as gifted to me, by the uninsured female, who failed to yield to my right of way, on 3/29/2016. My brother has endured his “whatevers” longer than I have.

My veteran brother and I had a little fun! Who knows? Mrs. Appalachian Irishman and I may still buy his folks and him a dinner or supper later this year. We will see.
