First, have a Happy Thanksgiving. I must say that this year our family has a lot to be thankful for.

We have traveled to the great state of West By God Virginia to spend the holiday with our families. The oldest boy flew out from Camp Geiger and we drove up Wednesday morning through the miserable rain and idiots on the road. Leaving at 4:00 am was the wife's idea and I am not sure that was the wisest move as it was a cranky ride up. Don't believe I'll do that again.

Rain has been unrelenting in WV for the previous few days and my family lives along the Little Kanawha River. It is moving quickly at least so it shouldn't cause too many problems. I have a picture and video for you.

The youngest boy has finally caught me in height. 13 years old and 6'-0" tall. Some day he'll quit growing but I'm not sure when. He really enjoys life and I have a bunch of new ideas for things we can do next year as he is the only child now. He does enjoy that but not the chores that come with it. 

The oldest boy got leave for this holiday and learned that he will be stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC. That makes the wife happy as he is close to home. His is in 308 but we don't know what company. He is also a 0311 infrantry-man and hopes to be team leader. He's talking about being deployed next June or so. 

 Well, more family is showing up so I'll leave you with one more photo and wishes for a happy holiday for you and yours. 

Until next time.....

Updates, Updates, Updates, and then some.

Well, it's about time for some updates. As you all know, winter is just around the corner. I spent the morning cleaning out the beds of any remaining plants except the beans. I hope to get something off of them before the first freeze. We've had a few frosts but no hard freeze yet. Maybe one night this week but I think that will be it.

Grow little beans, GROW!

Anyway, other than waiting for the first freeze and, more drearily that winter is coming soon, the flowers are doing good.

And I am going to be ordering seeds today/tonight. Get them at this years' prices. That's what I say. I did get some lettuce in the ground a few weeks ago and actually just remembered them. Let me go look...
And I don't see anything. I need to work on what to get in the ground right now. 

Here's a few pictures from my travels lately. Leaves are changing. 

Went and saw the oldest boy this past Saturday and he demonstrated his dance moves that they work on in the barracks. 

Techno music. Wow. 

WOF of the Week.

Really getting into her love seat lately.

That's all for now but i will have some more this week.
