Meet the ~ C Family, all 34 members of them. Recently, the patriarch of the family, Papa ~C, was inducted into the White County Agriculture Hall of Fame.
I was introduced to this wonderful family when I moved to White County in 1975. "Doodah" and ~M became dear friends (as well as so many other wonderful folks in this community) and I knew that I had found my new, forever home.
With so many coming to Thanksgiving Dinner this Thursday, you wouldn't think anyone would notice if one member were missing. There will be a huge vacancy this year, as ~S (Daddy to triplets and ~E) is in Iraq, serving our country. Thank you for this sacrifice.
This family, like all of us, has not been without its heartaches and sorrow.
However through the circle of Faith, Love and Strength, this family has not only survived, they have thrived.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

If one could only learn to appreciate the little things...A song that takes you away, for there are those who cannot hear.The beauty of a sunset, for there are those who cannot see.The warmth and safety of your home, for there are those who are homeless.Time spent with good friends for there are those who are lonely.A walk along the beach for there are those who cannot walk.The little things are what life is all about.Search your soul and learn to appreciate.--Shadi Souferian

Historically, the Leonids have produced some of the greatest meteor storms in history, with rates as high as many thousands of meteors per hour. These storms often recur in cycles of 33 years. In 2008, we anticipate more of a whimper than a growl from Leo the Lion, with a maximum of perhaps 10-15 meteors per hour. Like the October Orionids, the Leonids produce swift-moving meteors, and tend to put out the greatest numbers just before dawn. The peak, however, on November 17, also features a large bright waning gibbous moon in the sky after midnight. Forget the Leonids this year, unless you are a serious meteor observer – or unless you happen to spot a few whizzing past in bright moonlight!

I found it difficult not to be thankful and friendly myself, spending the day discussing such topics with a bunch of eager first graders. And believe me, they are watching us, their role models, very closely.
I do miss the classroom sometimes, but then....
it's nice to be retired too. There's never a dull moment around here. It took me forever to hang this swag this morning. I only used one, teeny-tiny, white nail and you can't even see it...stop looking!
Speaking of Thankfulness, just a reminder (again)...If you are an Arctic Cam fan, please send them a card (any kind) telling them how much you enjoy their site. A fan of AC suggested this several weeks ago and the Newsminer has commented on how much they appreciate the cards.

When the sheets get dirty, I throw them away. Also, the sheets prevent the dogs from chewing and destroying beds. (most of the time)
WHY DO THEY EAT THEIR BEDS???? They love their beds.

I jokingly said, "Oh, what time is Emmylou Harris arriving?" Linda gave me one of her knowing looks and smiled.
Yes! Emmylou was driving from Nashville and was due to arrive in 2 hours.
Emmylou knows North Georgia is beautiful this time of year!
From The White County News:
The Trojans finished as the second seed from Region 7-AAA and will host Hart County next Friday, at the Brickyard, in the first round of the Class AAA state playoffs.

There is no six-man league in Wyoming, so the Meeteetse Longhorns had to join a league in neighboring Montana. But that will change next year. Wyoming recently decided it should have its own six-man league, which will start up next fall.
