Saturday PhotoHunt

The theme this week is gather.  So here is my picture.  Family gathering around truck at son's house in preparation for the fireworks on July 4, 2011.  Such a great evening.

Happy New year everyone.  I will be spending at least part of it over at my sons house.  They don't want Mama (me) to be alone this evening.  Depending on how things go I don't have to come home as our motorhome is over there and it has 3 extra beds for anyone who doesn't want to drive home.

This will be my first Thanksgiving without Don but I do have my family and friends to make it a good day.

Grand Ole Opry Member Mel McDaniel Dies

Grand Ole Opry Member Mel McDaniel Dies He will be missed. I first met him when I was 15 and he was 20. I loved his singing then the first song I remember hearing him sing was at an audition for a band he wanted to perform with. In the mid 80s we got to see him perform at a club here in Topeka, KS and we enjoyed it very much. I always wanted to see him again but never got to. I will always remember him and love hearing his songs.
