1. An Irish Photo
A friend who lives in Ireland shared this photo with me this week. I think Ireland must be one of the most beautiful places. I guess it is my Irish heritage that calls to me from this picture.
Our good friend, Barry, picked up Pecans while he was in Georgia over Thanksgiving. They were on the ground at the home of his son and no one was picking them up so Barry brought home quite the treasure. He shared some of them with us. He even took them to the co op to be cracked. That is a true friend.
3. Christmas ornaments
My sweet Brother in Law, William, took home a few fence posts that Bruce had discarded when a new fence went in over the summer. Well knowing our Daddy's posts meant a lot to me and my sisters, William lathed these ornaments for us. There are enough for the three sisters and all the grandchildren. He put hooks in the end and I am adding a pretty ribbon as a hanger.
4. Baby in a Basket
Can there be Too Much of Joshua??? Nana thinks not.
5.Advice from a Southerner.
Yes we hear it all the time. You Southerners do not know how to drive in snow. Well no we do not as we have it so seldom we do not have equipment to clear the roads. Marvin and I laugh when we see cars off the road in northern states during the winter. "Look, another Southerner is making problems up north!!" I don't think anyone can drive on ice or frozen slush. Cars like to spin around in that mess. So stop making fun of us for staying home when it snows. It is usually gone by the next day and we are on our way again.
