Sunday in Florida, Is it Sunday where U R?

Oklahoma Bombing site, after the ruins had been cleared and before the monument was started. Note all the memorials (to the lost loved ones in the building when it was hit) hanging one the fence.

Steve and Josh eating Christmas cookies. Years ago!!!!!

It is Sunday. We attended church here at the RV park. There was over a hundred in attendance. Dr. Wellner from Charlotte, NC is the pastor here over the winter. He is a very sincere and dedicated minister. He is from the Christian and Missionary Alliance. He has taught in their college or university. We did not have a piano player, she is due in tomorrow.
It is Beautiful day down here. Windows open to cool the Motor home. Sherry and I have discussed a cruise a little more. It all is just too much for the spring. WE have two Josh and Steve graduating from college at different colleges. Space is so limited at graduations now, we probably will not get to attend, but we want to throw a party for our FIRST FAMILY college graduates. WE are so proud of them. I haphazardly attended college two or three times, never graduated. Sherry took some college courses in programming and business machines etc. Neither of our sons wanted to attend. Corey started a family too soon so he did not, Ben chose to go into construction so he did not, Reece graduated from beauty school but Stephen and Joshua have stuck it out for four years. Josh has said this is enough school, he is ready to get a job and get married. Stephen once said he was going for his masters then his doctorate. He is wavering now, cannot make up his mind. It is a very BIG decision.
Anyway we are thinking of throwing the party then heading for parts wild and unknown to us. Maybe a cruise in December is in the works. Next year we have a high School graduate, Matthew Dillon. We will leave travels open for the moment and just think some more. Thinking is much easier than making a decision. Hahaha!
Hope you all are having a great day.

Some things to think ponder:
* A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.

**How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

***Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.

****Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks? LOL LOL LOL (Evelyn? Shirl? Don? Sherry?)

see, I knew you would make a great decision about travel plans! so neat to not only have 1 college graduate but 2 in the same year (I know they are twins); I think a nice family party for them sounds like a great idea!! hey, found another blog of people living in their RVs; Backroad Chronicles

didnt know if you know about them

enjoy the day

Hello Mr. Jack,

Sounds like you guys have had a great Sunday. It has been a little stormy up here the last couple of days. I love the fact that the R v Park has a church. Have a good week!

God bless

Hi Jack, I'm glad you liked Cracker's Mule. I hope you and Sherry get to take all those trips you are 'thinking' on. Take care, Sheila

Decisions Decisions. Won't be long until the
big party. Two at one time. Is that the resturant in Stanley. or where you had your anniversary. Remember what they like to eat. Fast food and junk maybe we can have it in the backyard and cook it on George Foreman's Grill HA HA.

I like the last one about class reunions. There was a lady at church today that I knew when she was a baby. Boy! Did that knock me off my stilts?

Terri said...

I never went to College...i did good to go through 12yrs of school and graduate..ha!

Congrats to the soon to be College Grads!

I'm with you it's much easier thinking about vacation plans..than actually making the final decisions! Jeff and I need a good vacation...we haven't been anywhere in a few years...we can really only go somewhere during the months of Jan-March...and Nov-Dec...because of the Lawncare Business...makes it kinda hard...but this year he will be taking on less...which will be alot better...

Have a good the pics!

I know y'all must be so proud of the twins! only one of my twins is attempting to grauate college. they would be the first on their dad's side .I already have 3 who graduated and a few trying to make it . lol
you have to mighty clever and industrious to make it these days whether you go to college or not.

Debbie said...

Well it's Monday now, took me a long time to travel here, lol.
A party sounds great for the graduates! I'm sure all of you are proud of them. One of my nephews made it through 5 years before he said that was enough and got a job and got married. I had no desire for more schooling after I graduated high school.
Now I like your thinking here on this entry. I was getting stressed out in your previous entry just reading about all the decision making you were trying to do all at once, haha.
