Tornado Damage

Here are some pictures that we took of the damage and destruction of the 5 tornadoes that came through our county on Wednesday. A total of 9 people were killed, including a 3 month old. Such devastation. Please pray for all of those people who are effected as well as those who are helping out.

We now have power but the telephone and Internet are sporadic...sorry it's taken so long to get this post up. This was a 2-story house!

Easter 2011


We had a beautiful sunrise service this morning but had to wait for the sun to be up and the service over before any of the pictures would show up.

But I "borrowed" one from one that had been posted on facebook...thanks, Jake.

Heading Home

As we were winding up our stay in Texas, we had to eat more Mexican food as well as make a stop by Whataburger!DSC05738DSC05739

As we came into LA we saw these banners and realized that every town has to be famous for something!DSC05741

In Vicksburg we made a stop at the Battlefield and saw the Cairo…a Civil War Union vessel that the Confederates sank in 1862.  It was raised during the 1990s and is an interesting site to visit.  The National Cemetery is always a solemn place to reflect on our history.DSC05743DSC05744DSC05746DSC05747

We normally take pictures at the Texas monument but since we were headed back to Tennessee, we opted for this monument.DSC05750In Pearl, MS we drove by the stadium of the Mississippi Braves.DSC05754

The sweet spring smells were wonderful along the way and were produced by some of these type of flowers.DSC05756DSC05757DSC05758

San Jacinto Day

Aggies gathered together on June 26, 1883 to live over again their college days, the victories and defeats won and lost upon the drill field and classroom. Eventually the annual gathering evolved into a celebration of Texas Independence on San Jacinto Day – April 21st. Over time the gathering was named "Muster" and even though the tradition has changed, but its very essence has remained “If there is an A&M man in one hundred miles of you, you are expected to get together, eat a little, and live over the days you spent at the A&M College of Texas.”

We will be attending the Muster tonight and enjoy eating, listening to a speaker and fellowshiping with Aggies and their friends.

More Meanderings

We continue to meander around the country.  This was a great place to stop…they had everything…and more!!DSC05732

We were able to buy my brother a new car…at least it’s new to him!  But driving in Houston rush hour traffic was maddening.DSC05734

We had the opportunity to have supper with dear friends…it’s always good to catch up!DSC05733
