Roughing It BIG TIME

Tiffani and her dad came to visit while we were camping. Things were great until she discovered she couldn't get cell phone service from our campsite. MAJOR problem! How in the world does one survive without texting for a couple of hours??? Mamaw to the rescue...I explained that being in this little valley between two mountains...you just have to walk around until your phone finds a service area. Disaster was avoided when she moved around a little and found the right spot. I don't know how our kids ever made it, growing up without cell phones. Of course, when I was growing up we didn't even have a phone. How did I manage???

Poor Rhett

Bless his heart, he never complains. Last year on his birthday, he was here and I was in AZ because mom has passed away, so I forgot about his birthday ( which was understandable considering the circumstances). This year on his birthday, we were packing up the camper getting ready to bring it back home and I didn't think of it cause I was getting things organized and put away. When it finally dawned on me before we left the campground, I poured him a cup of coffee, got a Little Debbie Honey Bun out of the cabinet, didn't have any candles so I put a wooden match in the middle of it, lit it and took it to him while he was sitting at the picnic table. LOL He's such a sweetheart, he thought it was funny. I did promise to take him out to a really nice dinner in the next few days to make up for my forgetfulness. You know since I had this stroke I can only focus on one thing at a time...and bless his heart...his birthday was not my focus on this day.

Rhett's Project

while we were camping, this little hummingbird literally fell into my lap as I was sitting outside enjoying the sun! I think one of the predator birds must have dropped him from it's grasp. Anyway, Rhett took it upon himself to take care of it. He fed it sugar water, kept him inside at night and put him out on the picnic table during the day. The momma would find him during the day and feed him, she didn't seem to mind that we were always close by as she would fly in right beside us to feed him. It was amazing to watch as he became strong enough to flex his wings and finally he flew away to join the rest of his little family the day before we came home.

We're Back!

Wow, I tripped and almost broke my leg on all the love and hugs before I could even get to the veranda! Rhett is up on the roof right now gathering up the rest of them for me. Didn't know y'all would miss me so much or was it the juleps you missed most? LOL.
Promise there will be lots of pictures soon. We had such a good time and made so many memories. Will try to get back into the swing of things soon.
Love to all,
Miss Scarlett
