Spring is here!

And with Spring comes life in all of its glory!
Not extended life, but new life.
Which means somewhere along the way death had to occur.
But was it ever worth it...

What I think about when I go Wal-mart

You may look at this and see a jumbo windshield reflector for a big truck.
I see an insulated sleeping pad to use in a hammock, for only $7.64.
Can you see it now?

Well, I haven't weighed it yet, but I can always take it back.

Mac, are you getting this?

It is great having a mountain in your backyard

I love pulling in to my subdivision. Just as you turn in you have this up close and in person veiw of Sawnee Mountain.

According to my mother-in-law, it wasn't always a mountain. It was five feet short from being considered a "mountain". So, I guess it was "Sawnee Hill"?

Her 1st grade class didn't like that so the whole school, armed with wheelbarrows (and I'm sure some dads), trudged to the top of Sawnee Hill and piled up five feet of mountain-sized dirt.

Sawnee Mountain was born.

Did you know there was a Cuba, GA?

I didn't either.
I would love to sit down and have a conversation with Mrs. Roy Redd, maybe over a glass of sweet tea... I bet she could tell some great stories. And for some reason I bet she could also make a mean coconut cake. You have to be over 75 to make a mean coconut cake. Yes, I am an expert. It is 75.

Yeah, 99.5% of you are scratching your heads...
But this is HUGE, only if you're into ultra-lite backpacking...
If you are, you're green with envy right now...
If you're not... I won't bore you to tears...

Nonetheless, this is HUGE!

The 7th grade band rocks

Especially the clarinet section.

I used to have a good thing, before this...

Not long ago I didn't have cell coverage at my house. My house was my castle... It wasn't until I was a couple miles away from home that all my voice mails and e-mails would come in...

Then someone had the bright idea to put up a new tower...

So now I just turn my phone off... Castle restored...

What is it with bumperstickers???

"Uppity Women Unite"

What is going on?

What kind of reasoning is this?

In case you can't read it, is says:


Oh... OK then... It's all good.
Thanks for clearing that up.

What has it come to?

My new favorite resturant

Scoop your own ice, pour your own water, the owner serves you, pay at the counter when you're through eating, and EXCELLENT food!

And not a chain...

You be unique... You're the way you are for a Reason...

Oh, and it is right next to, connected actually, to a gas station.

That's what I'm talkin' about...

Sunrise and Sawnee Mtn

It is always a good thing to see a sunrise.
His mercies are new every morning...
Thank you God.

Who's Feet?

If it's above 30 and they're in flip-flops, thry're Allisons...

Pray for us...

10 o'clock 2 o'clock... Oh yeah.

What a mess...

This is the reality of my life at least twice a day...
There is a cumulative effect...

The best backyard in Forsyth Co.

Even after 7 years I still can't believe we live here... And yeah, it's better than a golf course... By far...

God is good...

Rodent Patrol

I walked out on the deck this morning just in time to see a HUGE hawk score a small squrriel! So that's where they're all going...

You can barely make him out sitting on a branch in the middle of the picture...
