Two months have passed since the last post. Pretty sad, isn’t it? But life sometimes gets that way…
In three separate trips since late November, I’ve been through North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida (three times), Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. I’m am so glad to be sitting at home in front of my own computer.
But it’s not all bad. I’ve managed to reacquaint myself with some old friends and see family that I haven’t seen in years.
I’m just tired of the travel. But at least through travel we’ve been able to enjoy some wonderful sights.
And one of the most interesting things that I had the pleasure of experiencing on each of the trips through Florida are the amazing pine trees. Straight and tall, perfect for lumber.
A couple of days after Christmas, we were able to visit what has been, for many years, our most favorite town in the southeastern United States – Natchitoches, Louisiana. It was a pleasure to see the town lit up for the holidays, just as it has always been. Especially after spending the day driving across southern Mississippi and Louisiana, where we got to see the effects of Hurricane Katrina, fifteen months on.
I hope the new year is finding you in good health and good spirit.
