Progress

Spring might really be on the way! The Daffodils look pretty good. The bedroom is finished! I put all the stuff back, I know there is too much. It is all photos, old high school year books and other worthwhile things. Here is a view over the head of the bed. The wedding ring quilt …

Almost On Our Way

Papa and I are headed out to the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival tomorrow.  We’re looking forward to seeing a few friends, and some great music.  Be there if you can, it is a well run event, with some great bluegrass entertainers included on the schedule.  I’m especially looking forward to seeing Grasstown, the Scene, …

Saturday is Right Around the Corner

There are a bunch of options for bluegrass in the D this weekend.  After careful consideration, Papa and I have decieded to head down to the Huron Valley Eagles and see B0 and John and ’em.  We’ve seen Bo sing quite a bit, but this will be the first time we’ve seen this group.  Bo …

A Taste of Spring

It was a little warmer for a day or so there, but now it’s back to the deep freeze.  We are supposed to have a warm weekend, but it won’t help Papa and I any, we are headed north to M-in-L’s house.  She’s having a birthday, and we want to be there. I’m busy as …

Back Home

We’re here, and most of our things are put away. I am a nest maker, so it is important to me to have things in order. I do have one problem, our bikes got covered with salt and snow on the way home. Our daughters had thoughtfully shoveled, so we drove right in the garage, …

We visited the 4-H Tidelands Nature Center, here on Jekyll Island, Georgia. There are exhibits of local marine …

Lazy Daze

Papa and I have vacationed to the max since we arrived here on Jekyll Island, Georgia on Monday. If you follow the link, you will see the Bluegrass Festival begins tomorrow. We’ll be there, all three days. We’re staying here on the island until Tuesday, continuing our vacation. We’ve explored the beaches, with long walks …

The Georgia Aquarium

Sunday, Papa and I visited the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. I hadn’t realized there was a football game at the Georgia Dome that day, but that didn’t interfere with our visit.  We had paid for our tickets and parking in advance, on-line, a move I always recommend.   This is just a short clip from our …

No Snow

There is no snow on the beach here at Jekyll Island, Georgia. Papa and I just went for a long walk on the beach, it is about 68 and humid. My shoulders are no longer knotted up, and I feel great!

Another Goodbye

GS1 flew out of here yesterday. Sometime today he flies to his new duty station in Japan on a military transport. Folks, this was much harder than any time in the past. He’ll be there two+ years, and the odds of Papa and I traveling that far are very limited. GS1 managed to finish his …
