It is voting day here in Alabama. Be sure and get out to vote. Today we vote in local elections. Priceville is the little town we live in now(though our address is Decatur) and we are electing a mayor and some city councilmen. I plan to go and vote when I do errands this morning. I took this picture of Kendall back on the 4th of July. Our newspaper always puts this big banner in the Independence Day edition. It is a good reminder for all of us that we are PRIVILEDGED to live in America. I for one want to see our nation go forth as a light for democracy in the world. Unfortunately, I see so much socialism creeping into the mindsets of Americans. I think our forefathers would be very surprised to see how modern men have twisted their words written in Colonial Times.

I am still keeping an eye on Isaac. I am hoping that we will be able to proceed with our vacation. I plan to make some goodies to take along. My Hubs loves oatmeal cookies so I am going to make some of those along with some chocolate chip cookies for moi.

Marvin and I are looking forward to hosting a missionary for dinner tomorrow evening. Michael Stephenson, who serves in Guatemala, will be visiting our home. Our good friends, the Gosnells, will be joining us too so it will be a fun evening. Our church is very missions minded and I really enjoy getting to know the missionaries that serve all over the world.

Off to do my civic duty!! Have a grand day friends.

Arlene, I hope the hurricane doesn't head your way.

What will you be fixing for dinner for your guests? :)

It appears the hurricane is heading to New Orleans so I am hoping by Saturday we will be able to travel to Gulf Shores as planned. As for dinner....grilled pork loin, hashbrown casserole, Asian Slaw and Rolls. Dessert is a Weight Watchers recipe as Mike has Diabetes. It is a layer of angel food cake, sugarfree vanilla pudding, strawberries and Cool Whip.(rather like a trifle).

Loved your post on Tasha Tudor...I love her books. I have Pumpkin Moonshine and I always display it in the fall!!
