Special . . .

Just wanted to share a couple of quick things with you today. First, there's beginning to be a few peeks of color on the trees. These pics were taken right here outside our camper a little while ago. It's kind of hazy, but according to The Weather Channel, should be clearing up soon, and tomorrow should be bright and sunny.

Oh, and the 'special' part of this post, well of course that is my two most favorite people! First, my hubby - he is so sweet with my mother! He wanted her to fish so badly that he made the trip down the hill to the lake to help her take her fishing stuff, stayed a while, then came back up here for a while. Later, he joined her again, and made the trip back up and helped her bring her things back up the hill. It's a steep hill, folks! And she had caught a pretty bass and we (I) made him go down with a bucket and bring the bucket full of water and the fish back up the hill so I could take a picture of Mama and the fish. And he did it without complaint. He's such a sweetheart, and I really kind of like him - a lot!
And the second special person is my mama - here she is with the pretty bass that she caught. She wanted pictures to show my nephew so he'll believe her - he doesn't think she can do anything without him (huge laugh here!).
The bass probably weighs about 1 1/2 pounds or so, and let it be known that he (or she) is safely swimming back in the lake right now, rejoining it's family.

Tonight we are going to a local barbecue place for dinner. You can find a previous post about the restaurant HERE. I'll check back in with you later! Blessings folks, Becky

Becky, what a wonderful vacation. Yesterday, the pool man and i took the punk on a bike ride, he sits in a seat on the front of the pool man's bike, and we went the the SC state park, rode around and watched the ocean. I commented to the pool man that we should come down and camp for a weekend, as it seemed so peaceful and i know my son would love it! you seem to really be enjoying your time with your hubby and your mom...and I LOVE that she wanted a photo to show your nephew that makes me cute! enjoy the rest of your weekend and thank you for being so sweet to me, always. xo

Dear Becky,

Your husband is definitely a keeper. And, your mom looks so happy with her fish. This trip seems to have done wonders for all of you. Enjoy the rest of your well-deserved vacation.

Becky, tell your Mom if I had caught that fish it would not have been put back with the other fishes. It would have been put in my big iron skillet with some french fries and hush puppies. Looks like you are having a great time.
