AN AWARD...


My dear friend Charlene gifted me with this award. Thank you Charlene!! I was away on vacation last week and was due to stay through the end of this week with my folks. We came home a little early. My Uncle Franklin passed away, so my Mom and Dad are headed down to Carolina to be with my Aunt Nezzi Mae. I have very fond memories of my Uncle Franklin. He had a shop where he could fix cars, tractors, etc. He was also a farmer and had hogs (that we used to terrorize) along with chickens, etc. Back in the days of no air condition, we would stay outside under the shade of the pine trees. Whenever we got thirsty, we would go to his shop where he would be working and ask for a drink. He had a refrigerator that was always full of Pepsi... a special treat back in those days. He only asked that we return the glass bottles so he could turn them in for a refund. (Remember those?) He was a man of few words, but he was always kind to us.
I just haven't been in the mood to stamp since I returned.

I'll share some photos of our vacation to the "Little Red House" on Chincoteague Island. We had a wonderful week. I already miss the sand, sea, and ocean breeze.....
I would like to pass this award along to some bloggers who inspire me...
