WE ARE HEADED TO GALVESTON AND DICKENS ON THE STRAND. The local newspapers say there will be a much smaller version of it this year, but we are just happy they are having it at all and it gives us a chance to have a couple of days away from the animals and daily chores.

We are staying at a new B&B for us and Lana the owner seems to be an exceptionally nice lady. I will bring back pictures. There is an old drugstore there we love to go to, they have the oldest coke sign in the US, hope it is still there. Talking to the owner's aunt yesterday, I learned they had 7 feet of sludge in the store, but are cleaning up and coming back like all the other people down there.

We are leaving behind our beloved cats and dogs. The black cat is Te Neg, she comes every morning and lays down while I work on computer and waits for her attention.

Hope everyone has a great weekend....see you Monday

Just want to say "hi" to a fellow newbie to what I call, "Blogville" ! I started my blog last month too. Isn't it fun! I really enjoy Rhoda's blog as well...for I am a southern girl.
My Granpa had goats; he would put their milk in my cereal.
