We try to visit the Hospitality Rooms of as many of the Southern states as we can so I can get my "accent fix" and talk with people who know how to talk right, LOL!!! Try to relax all you can. You sure do work hard! Take care!



How did you ever find time to work?

That is terrible and it happens way to often here in Indiana.

Boy, I'm feeling like we are really on top of things this year...Both of the Ornament and Christmas card exchange signup sheets are already up and posted. Santa is sure on his A-game this year!

And I'm signed up for the both of them!

Birmingham traffic is just as bad as Atlanta traffic, and I had to go through both. Ugh. Now I'm faced with at least 50 emails that need responses. Next time, I'm taking a work laptop with me so I can do some of this stuff on the road. Not that it was all bad; I learned some things, and ran into some old friends I hadn't seen in a long time.

But I didn't have a decent cup of coffee all week!! The Starbucks was only a couple blocks away, but that was 30 minutes each way in the local traffic. Awful.

Anyway, I'm back at my desk with a good cuppa coffee, and I'm having lunch with my kids, my mom and my brother. Church Camp Meeting starts this weekend, too.

I hope y'all have a great day!
always great to be home again!

Amen Brother!!! Enjoy it while it lasts.....

My advice to all the other dads out ther that have little kids yet at home... Charish the moments now while your kids are young, spend as much time with them as you can, talk with them and let them talk to you, because before you know it, BAM....That ole tire swing has just swung back at you and hit you up along side of the head.....

Mine are now 20 and 18 and I'm glad that we have the relationships that we do together....
