Thankful Today!

A big thank you to all those who have served and who are still serving our wonderful country! I truly feel blessed to live in the USA! We have so many freedoms here that sometimes we take it all for granted. Not only has the men and women who have been and are in the service have sacrificed so much but so has all of their families!


This morning I went over to Mom and Dad's place. Mom was ready to get started in the garden. Doesn't she have some big dogs :) Actually she has 3 huge dogs.

Dad was about to head to the hay's been a good year for hay!

In the first garden (yes they have more than one) they have onions, corn, green beans, blackeyed peas, beets, cucumbers, squash, watermelon, and cantelope. I bet I missed something.

Just look at that row of beans.....We picked green beans for two hours and still didn't get them all.

Garden #2....tomatoes at least 100 plants. Someone asked Dad why he had such a big garden and his answer.....I suppose me and Sue (my Mom) will have a LOT of friends come summer time.

Lots of green tomatoes!

15 gallons of green beans, squash, and cukes!

E * I * E * I * O.......

Happy Trails......Ginger
