Well, since I did not get any comments on my last blog... maybe no one is reading it anymore.. But I will try again. We left on Wednesday and drove 700 miles to Birmingham, Al. to meet our daughter Kathi and Mike and 6 grandkids for Thanksgiving.. Had to stay over night in motel in Albany, Ga. on the way but drove straight thru on the way home on Saturday.. Good food at Ryans... turkey, ham, steak, salmon and chicken.... plus NO dishes or clean-up !!! The motel was real classy ( and very reasonable priced ).. We had 2 suites at the Best Western Carlton... mints on the pillows, fancy folded towels, warm pool, 2 tvs/ suite.. ( kids loved that ) !!! On Friday we went to the Children's Science Center... 4 floors and VERY interesting.... Ci Ci Pizza and more swimming... full delicious breakfast in the motel and at 6:AM on Saturday , we headed home... We enjoyed our new church today and went out for lunch with 3 of the people to " The Twisted Lemon ".... The church people are very friendly and want to grow so I think this may be the church for us... Have a lot of activities planned for Dec.... Pray you enjoy the Christmas Season and Celebrate JESUS !!!!!

This is going to be a very funny blog.. Notice the girls wearing grandpa's swim trunks and t-shirts.. WHY ?? They came over to swim and forgot their suits ( they each own 4-5 ) so they decided to swim anyway.. good thing we have a private pool ! The water was great !!! 87*
They stayed over night and so we decided to make " smoothies "... Their folks got us a " bullet " last Christmas... Emily LOVED it !!!

Tim received a small coke bottle at his HS Reunion last May and Sarah always teases to drink it.. He finally said OK so she was REAL happy !!! She couldn't get over the fact that it was marked 10 cents..

We FINALLY came home to Cape Coral on Friday and when we met Mark and Tab's family... the girls gave me a dozen white roses... They are so pretty !!! Yes, the project is over and we are home and have already decorated for Christmas and have our Christmas letter about ready to mail... Since we have been home 3 1/2 days, we have went shopping and bought a new washer and dryer and a new couch ( 2 recliners ) and a matching recliner.. Guess we are set to settle down and enjoy our home.. Except we are leaving in the morning to drive 700 miles to Birmingham, Al. to stay in a motel ( indoor pool ) and share Thanksgiving with daughter Kathi and Mike and 6 grandkids !! FUN !!! This Thanksgiving , Thank GOD for all HIS blessings !!!

It has been a while since I've blogged !!!

It has been a long time since I have blogged so even though I have to blog just a picture of artist Thomas Kincaid, I decided I'd better try...Sorry , no good pictures.... Both Tim and I have been sick since we have come to this Sower project. I have had a cough and have only worked 1 day.. and Tim even took off work 1 day.. for him that is unusual.. We are both getting better now and the project is more than half over.. But needless to say, we have not went to the ocean or flea- market.. In fact about the only place we have been has been the store, the doctor and a few restaurants.. Tonight we went to the Outback as they gave free drinks and " blooming onion " to veterans... Both Chuck and Tim were in the service.. We have rented our home to missionaries from Honduras but we are anxious to finish this project and go home... This Saturday, the Christian school is having a huge Banquet to raise support for their school. We plan to attend and the " silent auction " We helped fix some of the fabulous baskets they plan to auction off...The weather has been great.... We were a little anxious about the Hurricane Ida... but as you may have heard, it missed us and hit further northern Florida as a tropical storm. It is usually in the 80's but a COLD front is moving in tonight and we expect it to be in the high 70's starting tomorrow.. Guess I had better blog more often and not so much next time !!!
