He's a Big Dip...

It's always good to see signs of someone moving on and doing great things. One of those signs happened yesterday when Miguel received his Senior Ring from Stephen F. Austin State University. Graduation won't happen till next August so we have plenty of time to answer the questions such as "do you say he was ringed or rung?" 

There are many college customs. I think some schools you drop your ring in a pitcher of beer and then chug it. At SFASU you make the Lumberjack "L" and dip your hand in a bowl of purple solution that makes a mark that lasts the rest of the day for sure and maybe longer. Here is Miguel doing the big dip.
I not sure how he resisted the temptation to put his face in the bowl or make war paint marks or something but then if I would have competed a degree from SFA it might be easier to understand.

He's a big dip alright.

Both are Lumberjacks. 


Did you hear that noise? He dropped the set out his ring. Speaking to college customs the one I fell victim to when I was a student at SFA was the legend that if you went inside the Old Stone Fort, a historical building located on campus dating from the early days of Nacogdoches as an undergraduate you would not finish a degree from the university. I went inside. Cathy went inside. To find success we both had to pursue higher education elsewhere to be freed from the curse. Miguel and Mary never went in the Old Stone Fort.
