The VMI Oath Ceremony, Battle of New Market, and VMI – September 2, 2018 – By Julian

By Julian (The Texas Giant, 10 ft 5 in)

For the beginning of the day, we woke up within 5 in the morning, left the Motel 6 (only temporarily), and drove on the road as Texas Roadies on steroids to a VMI (Virginia Military Institute) event at the New Market Battlefield in Virginia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeeeeee haaaaaaaaaw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠🤠⭐️☄️

On our way to the New Market Battlefield, we drove thru the heavens, clouds were beneath us, the shining beam of hope was in the sun, the sky was pink with light, the trees were bountiful, the grass moved beneath us, we did not surrender, and we just kept on driving as Texas roadies!!!!! 🤠

When we arrived at the New Market Battlefield, we saw VMI parents there, met VMI Delta Company parents, waited to meet Lance (my brother and member of the Texas Roadies family), saw rats (“rat” is a name used toward beginner students at VMI) march, saw the rats take their oath, saw the recreation of the of the Battle of New Market, and we ate sandwiches for lunch with lance!

As we were eating lunch, lance was talking about how he was able to overcome the time schedule, the annoying sound of getting up in the morning, the extreme heat, his brand new knife, and his success at VMI!!! “In peace a glorious asset, in war a tower of strength!”—Julian on VMI! Why did I quote myself?!?

After hanging out at the event (especially in the extreme heat), we drove as Texas roadies to our Motel 6 room in Lexington, and watched Fox News!

For dinner, we ate at a restaurant called “Southern Inn Restaurant” with lance and his great VMI dyke (dykes are a class of cadets within VMI who are counselors to rats)! I had the yummy Southern Inn Hamburger with a side of fries and Macaroni & Cheese! Dad ate the delicious Southern Inn Fried Chicken + Meatloaf! Max ate the delicious Southern Inn Fried Chicken + Meatloaf with a side macaroni n’ cheese! Mom ate the delicious Grilled Pork Loin with a side of grits and collard greens! Lance ate the delicious Grilled Sirloin Steak with a side of macaroni n’ cheese! Lance’s VMI dyke ate the delicious Grilled Sirloin Steak with a side of macaroni n’ cheese!!! We really like macaroni n’ cheese!!! 🥩🤠

For dessert (dad and mom did not want to eat dessert), Max and I ate the delicious Knickerbocker Glory, and Lance with his VMI dyke ate the delicious Double Lemon Tart!

After eating our long supper, we dropped off lance and his VMI dyke at VMI, went back to the Motel 6 room, watched Fox News, and slept!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🤠😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴
