Starting a new tradition

I have been using my “spare” time, when I’m not working or tired and sore, writing Christmas cards, and some of you may already have received one from me.  If you have a change of address since last year, please send it to me before I get to your name.  So far, I’m into the “G’s”.  This has precluded what little writing time I’ve had for my blog, but today I have pictures that I wanted to share.

Mother’s Day and the Big 6-0

Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I should have wished all you mothers out there a happy one, but I was too busy enjoying mine.  Sorry!  Today was my 60th birthday.  It was relatively normal with some special elements.  I have pictures from both days, although my pictures from today were taken on my phone and the quality isn’t quite as good.

Christmas message

Tonight we got off work early so we could attend the candlelight service at the Sun N Fun Community Church.  It took some time to get from work to Woodland Hall where the service was being held, but we were there before I was scheduled to do my reading.  I had been assigned to read John 1:1-14.  I memorized the whole thing in advance, but took my Bible up to make sure I didn’t forget anything.  We recreated my reading here at home for your listening pleasure: Continue reading

On top of Stone Mountain

Mark and I went to explore the mountain today.  We decided to be really daring and buy a one-way ticket for the sky tram to the top of the mountain.  There is a trail that people can take in either direction or both.  We weren’t daring enough to try both! Continue reading

From Stone Mountain, GA

I had never heard of Stone Mountain, GA before we started planning this trip, but it was a place Mark wanted to see.  It just so happened that I have another friend I had never met before who lives on the opposite side of Atlanta and he and his wife were free to meet us tonight.  Here are today’s pictures: Continue reading

From Brunswick, GA

We crossed two state borders today, skipping over South Carolina.  We will be back in a week or so, but we are in a hurry to spend Thanksgiving with my cousin and his family in Orlando tomorrow.  By the way, Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  I trust you will be with family and enjoying the food, the fellowship, and “the game” (whichever one you watch).

From Bowmansville, PA

This morning we touched three states before noon.  If only we’d been going in the right direction!  We wanted to avoid taking the toll road that runs across Pennsylvania, so I thought I programmed our first stop in Morgantown, WV.  What I actually clicked on was Morgantown, KY.  There ought to be a law that states can’t use the same names for their towns!  We figured out our mistake when we hit Ohio again and we turned around, but by the time we got back to our starting point in Washington, PA, it was already 12:30 pm.   Continue reading
