Happy Thanksgiving

We were blessed to have Buck, Jim and Margie join us for our Thanksgiving feast. Here we are just before we dug in! We had plenty of turkey, dressing, squash, sweet potato, macaroni and cheese, green beans, rolls and gravy. Of course, we finished it off with some good pecan pie(made by Daniel) and pumpkin pie(made by Timothy).

Now, it's time for "naps".

Bridge to Nowhere!

Thursday, as I was traveling in the upstate, I noticed an old bridge that had been abandoned. I've traveled this way before and never noticed it. Apparently, in some year past, the road had been rerouted and now this old bridge sits only yards from the new road in ruins.

It always stirs me to see structures that are no longer in use and probably could tells some stories if only they could talk. I had to stop and snap a few photos. Notice, there's a couple of trees growing near the mid-span of the bridge.

Brothers and Sisters

It certainly was a pleasant surprise to get a call from Nevadia telling me that she, Dorn (Peter) and Penny would like to stop by on their way back from a mountain trip. It's been a long time since the three Freeman Clan have had a chance to set down and visit. I only wish it could have been longer. Dorn is looking good after he gave us a scare last year. It makes me realize the importance of having family. I only wish they were a little closer. I miss them all.

Nevadia and I talk about family reunions every time we get together and how we really need to plan one, but that's as far as it gets. It's a little hard to face, but our family is getting older and we need to take this time that God has given us and plant some memories for our children and grand children. We need to plan time together!
