Christmas is just around the corner! Be very careful and safe.
Leo and Carolyn Lyle enjoyed having Greg and Pam Grantham and Carson come for early Thanksgiving the weekend before. They wanted to spend Thanksgiving at their home in Oklahoma.
Steve and Janice Lofton, Dan and Doris Martenez and Micheal and Lisa Martenez enjoyed the seven day cruse last week to Cozamel, Cayman Islands and Jamica. Sure were tired and ready to get home! Steve and Janice also enjoyed two of their little grandsons, Ethan and Max, spending the Thanksgiving holidays with them.
Bruce and Charlene Duscharme from Hebert dropped by on Wednesday for a real good visit. I did enjoy them!
Louise Cater and her family spent Thanksgiving at Gary and Angie Caters. Food, food and more food plus love and laughter from all accounts. It was and enjoyable day especially with her two little great granddaughters, Kylie Joe and Georgia Pearl. It doesn’t take long for them to grow up.
Tanja Thompson’s family met on Saturday at Kyle and Mara Browns’ in Monroe for their Turkey Day. There was lots of food (some German made by Tanja) and very good, games, family and friends who enjoyed this!
Negativity is a choice. Resentment is a choice. Anger is a choice. Revenge is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Compassion is a choice. Forgiveness is a choice. Empathy is a choice. How we live our one given life is a choice. Choose Wisely!
Sunday late evening, Vanessa, Carter, Aiden and I traveled over to Calhoun and went down Candy Cane Lane.
Let me tell you if you have never been to see this array of lights of all sorts, you don’t know what you have missed. It is absolutely awesome. Just $twenty dollars$20 per car and it was well worth it. I can’t do justice to tell you. You need to see this sight for yourself.
