ETC A Goodbye for Mr B

This is my furbaby Mr B I had to say good bye to him on Oct 25 2014, It was a heartbreaking
decision but he was so very sick. He was wasting away and could barely move. I have cried so
many tears and I still tear up just thinking about him. He was ours since a puppy and he was 7.
He was such a baby so scared of thunder .The thunder coat was a blessing for him.

He loved to sit in your lap even though before he got sick he was over 60 pounds.We never
could stop him from jumping up on you to say hello. He was a special big guy and will
always be missed.

October/Fall Catchup for September

Jaime and Derek did the Muddy Run at Hill Ridge Farms. I observed and it looked like a muddy lot of fun


It has been a month since I posted a entry to my blog. Life sometimes gets you so tangled up

its hard to find time to do the things you like.

Our family is going thru some rough times right now and I ask for your prayers. We have family

whose relationships are over, we have family who have mental problems and we have family

members who are in legal troubles. The old saying when it rains it pours.

Jaime and I took a birthday trip covering more states in her quest to visit all 50 states. Our main

destination for this trip was Indiana. We went to Indinapolis. It was a very nice city and I really

liked it. I think Jaime did also it had the feel of NewYork without all the people. The city has a lot of

monuments. This one you actually could climb or ride elevator almost to the top. It was a very good

trip and I will share more details in another blog. Thanks for reading and sharing.

September Etc

The summer has flown by so quickly.Even though it is still hot weather it already has the feel

of Fall. Football started tonight according to my daughter and grandsons.

I have a lot of posts to get caught up on and I just wanted to let those who take the time to

read and follow my blog that I haven't forgotten you.

I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and it is taking me awhile to find out how to use it.

Change is hard when you get my age.

September is my birthday month on the 26. My daughter is September the 15th, My grandson

Andrew is the 21 and we have a new granddaughter due around the 29 so this is a busy


No photos to share with this entry as they are everywhere on old and camera.

I will get it together soon,

Thanks for reading and sharing.

Until next time

ETC July Movie Day

Hi everyone

We spent the day at the movies.

Hercules  with the Rock(Dwayne Johnson) It was an awesome movie. A very new twist on the Legend of Hercules. Funny/Sad/Battles and more. I think you will really enjoy it.

Lucy with Scarlette Johannsen   It started off very very good and then it went out into
outer space or somewhere. Not so good to me.

We ate at Dickey's Barbecue Pit between movies. Do you know they serve their BQ
sandwiches with sauce and pickles an onions?. That is new to me, so I got mine on the side.
I tried a little of each on my sandwich/ onions ok/pickles a no.I am planning on going
again and try some of their other dishes.

A great fun day just my husband and me.

I am trying to learn some new computer things so if something weird shows up
remember the learning process takes a little longer the older you get.

I should have some ads showing up and if you have time please click on them and
check them out.

Until next time
God Bless

ETC for Month of July

I am doing a lot of ETC because we don't travel much in the summer for 3 reasons: cost, crowds and expense. I am so ready to go and even just saying the above we are planning a beach trip for August. We found a real good deal at Carolina Beach and are so ready to go. The traveling bug has struck.

I am still working a very little at Dollar General so we will see how long it goes just saying I think a little
age bias going on but thats ok.

We've been traveling alot of the back roads between Bunn and Louisburg when we are going to see my Mama. We enjoy checking them out. The country is so beautiful.

Today we visited the town of Nashville NC est 1780. A beautiful historic town that has combined the old with the new.
I didn't get many photos because the sun was so bright and I couldn't see.I would love to go back with someone other than the husband and check it out. I saw quite a few thrift and antique shops.The main street
was very nice and not rundown as so many of our older main streets are.A very pleasant street to look at.

We ate at Sauls BBQ and Seafood.A very plain hometown place to eat. It was good and was
getting very crowded when we left.

We also rode thru Castalia NC which has Small Town USA which is shopping and also they
host country shows and more.

Check out their Facebook page for the next show.

We didn't go far but it was a nice day of traveling and enjoyment.

Thanks for reading and please share with your friends.
God Bless
Until next time

We finally got all moved in to our camper house at Lake Royale. I still have a lot of boxes that are
packed and stored but we are in.
A few pictures of our house and yard.
It really needs a lot of work.

I am glad to be back up here where we are camping all the time. A staycation daily. It is pretty and
mostly quiet up here. We love to take golf cart rides around the lake.

Besides moving I am working a temporary job with Dollar General helping with remodeling a store
and stocking 2 new stores. We have one more store to complete and then I guess I will be not working
again. It is hard work but I have enjoyed it just knowing that even though I am a senior citizen I can still
work. I have learned quite a bit.Fingers crossed that maybe a small part time position might show up
within one of the stores.

Thank you for reading and hopefully sharing my blog with your friends and if you can click on some of
the ads as that helps spread my blog around.

More to come
Until next time
God Bless
