Toomer's Corner

I came home from work on Thursday afternoon to have Gloria and my mom tell me about the 'Bama fan who poisoned the 100+ year old Live Oak trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn.  Gloria had heard about the tradition of throwing toilet paper into the those trees after winning football games from Uncle Will and from reading about it in a book.

(I borrowed this from by brother's Twitter page.)

Then she experienced it for herself after the first Auburn-South Carolina football game last September.

(Not a great picture.  Taken on Will's cell phone.)

Now, she is very sad about the trees.  As she puts it, "That was tradition.  Why would somebody want to ruin that?"  And I know that lots of people would agree with her.

Yes! we couldn't believe it either. My hubby ordered us the new t-shirt from tiger rags that came out Friday. All of the money raised from these shirts will go toward saving or replacing the trees. I did her that Bama has started raising money to help Auburn save their trees. I think they too were saddened by the actions of one of their crazed fans. I hope the trees make it.

Yes! Even us Bama fans are incredibly saddened by these actions!
