Family, Friends, Family, Friends

Cullman, AL

Family Part One

Thanksgiving 2018. 

We were invited to our son and daughter-in-laws house for dinner.  They live about 20 miles from us.    I didn't take any pictures!   I forgot.   Lois sent me a picture of the group and it is on my phone.   Not being terribly tech savvy I have no idea how to get it on to my laptop.  Lois, I need your help next time you are here.   Please.

Regardless, it was a fine day.  Lois was especially thrilled as her daughter, husband and 3 kiddies came to visit from Louisiana.

Friends  Part One

Late November 2018

This is Bob and Linda Webster

We know Linda and Bob from when we all lived in New Jersey.   We met them through the Marriage Encounter program.  They retired approximately the same time we did and spent a year traveling before settling (mostly) in Maine.   They are also NOMADS.   Bob is a retired United Methodist minister, Linda a retired teacher.   They were  traveling back from  Texas where they did some NOMADS work and visited with a daughter at Fort Hood.   We invited them to park in one of our RV sites. When they left here they were headed to Virginia to visit two more daughters before going home to Maine.   We were so thrilled to have them stay overnight and visit for the evening.    Hopefully they will visit  again when they return to Texas in March.

Family Part Two

This past weekend we took a little drive.    606 miles each way.  We left early on Friday, over-nighted near Hammond, Louisiana and moved on to Len's sister Sissy and her husband Davids home in Orange TX.   Why?   Sissy was hosting a dinner for Lens siblings and spouses.

The brothers and sisters:

The siblings with their spouses

What a great night.   It's always fun to get together with this rather large family.   Heck, this ain't nothin'.    Should see them when the kids, grand-kids and great-grand-kids get together.          Needs a W I D E lens.

We left Orange yesterday and drove straight on through the 606 miles and got home last night.

Friends Part Two

Before we went to Sissy's on Saturday we stopped for a visit with our friend Diana who lives in Sulphur, LA.    We try when in the area to spend some time with Diana.   It wasn't a long visit but it was a cherished one.

After we left Sissy's on Sunday we grabbed breakfast with our dear friends Judy and Leonard who live in Baton Rouge.   We always try to make it a point to meet up with them on our way through.  We met Judy a few years ago when we were camping at Raccoon Valley Campground near Knoxville, TN.   She's is a dear friend to both of us.  And it's easy to remember her hubby's name.

Well that about brings us up to date.   Next trip........ NJ and MD and VA and PA.  More friends, more family.

Until next time.
