sunscreen....ice cubes.....flip flops....

there's been game playing...."L,R,C"....super fun...we were SUPER loud playing....all the way to the camp ground we could be heard yelling and laughing...dice game and dollar bills....now I need to buy my own for future playing...all ages loved playing...we let the kids keep their winnings....

boat riding all over the lake and up 'n down the river.....

with friends...and later after the holiday weekend....with the dogs.....

barbecued ribs, hamburgers, chicken....7 layer dip...margaritas....french toast....carrot cake...

the more I'm reading the book "Unbroken"....the more I'm eating......

I recommend you take the time to read this true story.....
and you'll think twice about EVER saying you've had a bad day in your life....

the book is almost finished....good thing....my pants won't fit if they don't get something to eat soon...

there's been storms...lightening...wind....lots of heat...clear warm water while floating...

empty boat ramps...quiet golf cart evening rides...old t.v. shows...

"Jacks or Better" casino game playing....while enjoying another margarita,,,,

and there's lots of time before we have to think about heading back home....

I've started a new cotton blanket on the knitting needles.....and small rock collecting...for another knitting project...

our thoughts and conversations are of family in Sicily...out of the house..into the hotel...

soon...home....HOME.....HOME.....USA...there is no better place on earth....







Read the book UNBROKEN....and then go hug a veteran.....hug him tight........

Ahhhh. You look so relaxed. I want to be on that lake. Are there loads of fish?

What is the best thing you've eaten all week? I'm dieting, so I want to live vicariously through you.

When we listened to Unbroken, I honestly remember thinking to myself, "WHAT NOW?"

Have a great weekend my dear!

Hey, some great photos here! That sky is incredible, and the beautiful cove looks familiar to me. Love the shot of you with Anne.
