Sunday - March 6th
Sunday was my Uncle and Aunt's 50th wedding anniversary and Frank and I left after lunch to go to Alex City and make an appearance. It had rained several days last week and so Hillabee Creek was very angry and out of the natural bank. Of course this is nothing like what they are experiencing in New Jersey, but we have been under flash flood warnings a good bit of the week. The little barn is so just outside of Daviston. I pass it every day and can never seem to catch the shot due to traffic....but Frank stopped on Sunday....and grabbed it for me. (Truth be know he just wanted to play with the new camera...)
Monday it was still pretty gray but I really wanted to get you some pictures of the Wehadkee Mills which is right down the road from my house. The local kids swim in the water pool and obviously some creative person has waded out and painted a flag on one of the rocks just past the dam. Wehadkee Mills used to make socks....but like most other textile plants it is no longer in operation.
Tuesday I was coming home from work and decided to grab this sign. It was quite a thought provoking one don't you agree? I have numerous bibles and it really disturbs me to see a dusty one.
Thursday is bowling night and after Frank picked me up we drove down Hwy 63 to a new sub-division Russell Lands is developing. The main office is all that is complete so far and it is so cute. I love the little water mill. I guess that is my theme this week....water mills. I can't wait to see what the sub-division looks like when they finish.
Friday - March 11th
Friday night we ate supper at Rock Mills School. It was a spaghetti dinner fund-raiser and the food was very good. After dinner Frank and I had to run to Wal-mart for a few supplies and on the way we stopped by our next door neighbors house. Wayne and Amy have a building in their yard that is covered with the coolest signs and I just had to share a few with you. The last one is my favorite. In South Florida it is nothing to see this sign posted on the road. My dad actually ran over a gator once when I was little. It felt like a ginormous speed bump....and the gator kept on crossing.
Saturday - March 12th
Saturday was a busy day. One of our church members was in the hospital in LaGrange, GA so we left early to go by and see her. Between our house and LaGrange is another one of the "Rock" towns. This one is called Standing Rock. The Rock picture is right in the center of the town. I had to get this one. The other "Rock" town is Rock Stands. It gets a bit confusing around here as to which "Rock" town you are from. After checking on Betty Jean we drove to Montgomery to see Kat and Brian and have lunch with them at Firehouse Subs (yummy). Kat took a picture of Brian (she wanted to play with the camera). I grabbed one of the two of them. They were on their way to the park to play frisbee. I think they play something called Ultimate Frisbee with several of their friends. Frank and I left them and headed back to Alex City to prebowl. This week we have a meeting in Rock Mills and won't be able to bowl. What a day....and what a traveling circle. Hope you all have a blessed week!
