I sure hope the bear stays away! Glad you are able to carry on a loving tradition, MGRamsey. Hope your mom is feeling better.

This Sunday is decoration Sunday for our family so I will be headed into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to our old family graveyard. (Decoration is a once a year event when everyone goes to place flowers on family graves). The park service took my great Grandfathers (along with lots of others) land in 1943 for the national park. All my family that died prior to 1943 are buried there. The oldest grave is 1811. Once a year the park service takes families across Fontana Lake back to old family graveyards. There are over 50 graveyards in the park. They go to a different graveyard each Sunday during the summer. Ours is always the first Sunday in June. There are 41 graves at our site and I'm related to 38 of them. My mother is no longer able to go so I go to place flowers on mom's sister's grave along with my great grandparents, etc. I've only missed going a couple of years in my life. Except for the graveyard and whats left of rock home foundations, all signs of civilization are gone. It is neat to go back into the wilderness to the ruins of the home my mom, grandparents, and great grandparents were born in.

Good afternoon,

It's HOT!!!

I came home and installed the AC in the other end of our house, cooled off the room by 7 degrees in less than an hour. I am feeling tired today, very long day at work.

They finally started tearing down the town hall that was destroyed by the tornado, it is the second anniversary of that horrible day tomorrow. My aunt, who lost her house in the tornado, called and told me that she started to cry when she saw part of the building torn down. The town hall also use to be my elementary school growing up, so it is sad to see it go. But we will be getting a brand new state of the art "green" town hall. I am looking forward to seeing it.
