We had a nice time in Chatsworth and drove back home to Decatur early Thursday morning as we were expecting some tornadic activity on Thursday afternoon. By the time we got home, poor Marvin was exhausted. Driving in Pouring Rain on mountain roads is not for the faint of heart. We did stop at the half way point in Henagar, Alabama to get a cup of coffee and a Sausage Egg McMuffin before battling on to Decatur.
We had lunch with Charles in Cartersville, Georgia on Wednesday. I wanted to get the children their Easter gifts and I had a special gift for Charles. My mother agreed to giving Charles the flag that was draped on Daddy's coffin as a veteran of the Korean Conflict. Charles and Joshua are both named for my daddy and my granddaddy so I felt he should have this precious momento, He sent me this photo.
If you are ever in Cartersville, Georgia, check out Southern Muggs coffee. Oh my goodness...it is delicious. We stopped in for a cup after doing some walking around the square. Sorry no food photos but we had lunch at Appalachian Grill if you want to check them out on Facebook. Marvin and I used to stop there for dinner after the GA Tech games.
I also want to share a little oil painting I got at my favorite shop in Decatur, Tammy Eddy's Antiques. I stimulated the economy with my stimulus money.:)
We are celebrating this boy's birthday on Saturday.
After I wrote my blog Thursday at noon a tornado touched down in Ben's neighborhood. Thankfully they are okay but their house is not. They were protected as many houses were totally destroyed. They have some roof damage and their windows blew out. Katy said the house right behind them was totally destroyed. They live in the Eagle Point Subdivision in Birmingham if you happen to see pictures on the weather channel. Praising God for protecting my crew who were in their basement calling out to God. Katy sent a few pictures.
