Another Aggie Hits the Ground A Runnin’

On Thursday morning May 9 we drove down I-45 south then west toward College Station.  Destination this trip was Olsen Field, home of Blue Bell Park (named for the best Aggie ice cream and located in Brenham, Texas) and Texas Aggie Baseball.  What a great place to park!  Named after Elsie Duncan Olsen, the perimeter of the parking lot has been designed as an RV park with all units actually accessing the large grassy park area with large trees, picnic tables on decorative concrete slabs and a large pavilion for group functions.  Each RV has its own pedestal for electric and water with covered trash can and a dump station located as you leave the lot.  It is within walking distance of Reed Arena where basketball is played and commencement ceremonies are held.  On Friday at 2 PM, grandson Adam walked the stage becoming the third generation Aggie on both sides, and a proud boy he was.  It was amazing to learn that over 7,100 graduated in those two days with three ceremonies each day, joining the largest alumni association in the world of over 350,000.  Afterwards we all gathered on the lawn behind our rig for a fajita buffet and had 24 members of 5 families present.  Luckily the rains that had pounded all night before waited until we all were fed and gone to rumble back in.  Then on Saturday morning we quietly folded our unit up and drove out of College Station heading due west.
