More About Eastbank Campground

| February 24, 2014

Camping at Eastbank COE campground was great! We enjoyed walking around a circuit along with many other temporary residents. Seminole Lake is beautiful, even on windy days.

Tallahassee Museum

| February 20, 2014

The Tallahassee Museum is an large outdoor village and zoo. The village contains a train caboose, a schoolhouse, a church, a plantation house, kitchen and slave house.

The US Army Aviation Museum is a Fort Rucker, Alabama, just a short drive from Dothan. It has a large collection of army aircraft.

Quiet Camping

| February 18, 2014

Sunset over Seminole Lake at Eastbank Campground Our first stop is Eastbank Corp of Engineers Campground in Bainbridge, Georgia. We had reserved here in advance of the trip.

Just a little Ride

ХудожникподаръциLast fall Papa and I collected a few rain barrels. We hoped to give the plants rain water as much as possible, and lower our water bill in the process. This designer model was a Mother’s Day gift from D3 a few years back, and it has been getting a workout ever since it arrived. […]

ХудожникThat seems profound, but it is all I have to describe what is happening here at Granny’s. As his Facebook friends know well, the count down is underway and Papa will retire soon. After today, there are exactly 8 days remaining in his career at Avon Automotive. When he started working there in December, 1977, […]

Back to Blogging?

| January 11, 2012

Богородица We are approaching a milestone here at Granny’s. Papa’s retirement date is set, and he will be under my feet here at home helping me in the near future. This is a good thing, he has always been a hard worker, and it is time for a little rest. Life in the slow lane, […]

What is Really Happening

| June 2, 2011

иконографияКартинимека мебел Wow, too much to relate here. I have spent some time just thinking. What is important, what I should do first, second and so on. I was sick for a while, thankfully that is in the past. It did make me think even more, however. Our daughters are moving on, to places of […]
