The next four days are filled with all types of activities that will do quite well despite the rising temperatures with Sunday slamming through the 90s.
Of course, anyone who loves burnt orange longhorns or favors OU red, will either be one of the 25,000 at the Cotton Bowl or glued to life-sized TV screens for the annual Red River Showdown. The festivities start at 11 a.m. Suggestion: As great as Twitter and other social media outlets are, they just don’t compare to watching the game in person or on screen.
On the other hand, if you’re expecting a baby or planning to wed on Saturday, boy, did you score the perfect date! Just imagine the date on the birth certificate or wedding license — October 10, 2020 (aka 10/10/2020).
While Sunday will be a day of rest except for Cowboys fans, Monday will continue the respite thanks to Columbus Day being a Federal holiday. If you’re thinking about going to a government office or most banking institutions, call first. Chances are you’ll get a voice recording suggesting you try back on Tuesday. But the good news is that online banking is always 24/7 available. Alas, if you’re expecting a check in the mail, it ain’t gonna happen Monday. That goes for bills, too! Still more good news! Many retailers are offering Columbus Day sales.
And speaking of Tuesday, it’s the first day of early voting. If you’re hesitant about voting early or by mail consider voting on Tuesday, November 3.
