Home Again

Good evening and welcome Through My Back Door. Have a cup of coffee and lets visit, as it seems forever since you have dropped in.  I got home from the beach, SeaGrove, Fla, on Saturday evening. Lots has happened in my life since I left over a week ago.Two of my grands have moved home, Curt and Beth. Ryan has signed to practice with an Ortho group, Linz is going to work for a Cancer Center, and Curt will work as a pharmacist for Walmart. He has passed his boards and I am soooo proud of him.Beth isn't going to practice for a while. On Sunday, after church, Deb and I went to Beths and spent the night, helping unpack. She is 24 weeks pregnant and needs help. Amelia keeps her busy. Anyway I ended up staying 3 nights and Deb and Michael stayed 3. Ryan will be home today, so we are home. Amanda and the children have been there too. Mollie and Andrew love Amelia, so it has been fun, as well as work.
We had bad storms Tuesday evening and Amanda and Clay had some damage. My power was off and limbs every where, but that was it. Anyway I am home for a while and the beach was wonderful. This was our last night there.
 This is such a beautiful beach. White sand and green water. So peaceful and serene. This girl helped make this trip so much fun.
She had just completed her internship at the State Capitol in Nashville, in time to go with us. We had some great talks and she shared a lot with me. Love her to pieces and she is my youngest grandchild. We ate at our favorite places and added a couple to our lists. One was Nicks, where we got a delicious Key Lime pie, and the other Elmo's. They have live music and delicious food. We met some of my friends, who happened to be in Panama City at the same time we were at SeaGrove, there.
Olivia took this of Bob and Mary Rhodes and me. We really enjoyed food and music. Her brother and sister were there too with their SO's, as well as Dodd and Renda.
I have been in a blogging funk lately. Don't have anything going on other than some traveling to talk about. I am afraid I am I need to do some changing here at the house, but haven't had time. I hope each of you are having a wonderful summer. I am loving it, especially after the cold and long winter we had. I am home now for a while. I am meeting my cousin and her husband, at her daughter's home in Nashville, next month. I think I shared we are going to the Grand Ole Opry. I have a couple more short trips planned, but they will be later.
Well, it was wonderful having you return Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Hopefully, my next post will be a better one. I apologize to each of my faithful followers for slacking. Please don't give up on
PSS: The Speckled Hen has closed its doors. She has a booth in a place in Lenoir City and is doing a show once a month.
PSSS: If you have your Fathers give him a warm hug and tell him you love and appreciate him. I wish I could tell mine how much I loved him and how my Grands love to hear stories about him. He could play any musical instrument, as I said before. This picture of Seth and Andrew would make my Daddy smile
