Thankful for many things this year but most of all for the love of family and friends. Saturday noon was spent with Anne and her family. Then Pat baked pies to take to my Mom later in the afternoon. My Mom and me. . . we still miss my Dad a lot but we have [...]
We had a great time exploring Tugaloo Bend along the Tugaloo Corridor, which is one of the most historical places in the state.
