Most people on the 4th of July look forward to seeing the fire works. Not my family. My dd, oldest, and myself all went to dinner to watch the fireworks. Well they were nice. I still enjoy watching them just like I did as a kid. I even tried to take pictures of them. My dd told me to just down load some from the computer. Now that wouldn't be right. Friends would think I took really nice pics. Then I would tell them that they were from the computer. My kids couldn't wait to get in line for, you guessed it, Funnel cakes! I think we were in line during most of the fireworks. Meet some nice people though. I only had one little bite. Yum! I didn't want 800 gms of fat running through my veins.

One of my favorite places.

Moving Day

My oldest and I went to DC to help the middle son move. We went up last Thursday. The drive was actually not bad. We went part of the way through the country. My temp on my car said 104 degrees! Wow thank goodness for AC. The country in NC is just a beautiful site. The tobacco was so pretty. I know it's not healthy but it is a really pretty plant. The move itself went well and we ate out at a micro brewery restaurant. The boys had fun sampling the beer. Yes, I got to drive home in a city I don't know. All was good. I"m good with directions thanks to my dad. It was fun to hang out with my middle and his wife. The not so good part was the drive home. Leaving the city on the HOV lane was fine but it ended before we even got to Quantico! OMG! I have live in NC to long to like that traffic. I'll take my country roads any day!


Spain vs Paraguay Go Spain!

The joys of being a pet owner!

This is the little gift my dog Sassy left me. I can't believe she did this on the deck. In all her life she has never done this. I am accustomed to the little bombs she leaves in the yard. But on the deck! Wow!

Starting Line

Start your engines or lets get ready to rumble! Well....I'm now out there! I can hardly believe it myself. What am I doing? Well this is sort of an experiment. Sure I can do this. I love to chat with people. Ha ha! After getting all set up, now I'm exhausted and need to go to bed. I'll fill you all in tomorrow. Well I mean today. Bye
