Bye Bye Blackbird

Butch is unfamiliar with blackbird ribbons through the sky.  Apparently northern Florida coastal areas never witness them
To be honest I don't think we've been in their flight pattern really well until this year.  and that's saying a lot as we've been here ELEVEN years now.
can you believe it?  Two more and this will be the LONGEST I have lived in one spot since 15. 
Wow there's a weird statement. 4 years old and 13 year is my longevity for a single location. 
Yep, built for a nomadic life.

Elizabeth's Christmas Concert

Yes that is her with her hair across her face. Glad I didn't remember the good camera! Wouldn't have done any good. Sigh.

We did get a good photo with Santa, however.

And this goes to show you're NEVER too old for Santa :)

OMG, I'm dead....

Donna Marie Autrey

WINSTON-SALEM — Mrs. Donna Marie Robbins Autrey, 57, passed away Wednesday, June 27, 2007.
A graveside service will be conducted 2 p.m. Sunday, July 1, at Oaklawn Memorial Gardens by Brother Paul Autry.
She was born June 6, 1950, in Forsyth Co., to the late Herman Louis and Patsy Smith Robbins. Donna was a very loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunt. She loved singing, riding motorcycles, and horses. But most of all she loved her family dearly.

OK, so it's not me, but I was doing a search and wondering just what people would find under my name - shocking to see I had an obituary to the "T" on my maiden name!!

Great news, I'm still alive - bad news, a lot of folks I wouldn't have suspected to be dead at our age are dead.  Sad, I found out Tim Foster (from Missouri in the late 80s) has passed away - 10 days after his 47th birthday... that's just not right.
