Throwback Thursday…

It’s #Throwbackthursday again & I wanted to throw a spotlight on one of the coolest “old salts” that I ever had the pleasure to know. B. Jacob ‘Cutch’ Millard. He was my wife’s Grandad, who actually raised her which made him my defacto Father in law. He was from the “Greatest Generation” & served his country in WWII, Korea & Vietnam.

A few photos of a Great man! Cutch served for well over 30 years and saw action in WWII, Korea & Vietnam. He loved the bottom right picture with Eleanor Roosevelt. He was a great American!

Old Cutch mustered out of the Navy in the mid 70’s and returned to his Tennessee home. He was a proud Husband, Father, Grandpa & Great Grandfather. He lives on today in our hearts, in this #Throwbackthursday post & through his family, including our son Jacob, who bears his sir name.

Heres to ya’ Cutch! #Throwbackthursday!

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

We are officially in the “Christmas Season”! We kicked it off with a HUGE Thanksgiving feast! Followed by a road trip, a shopping trip & another party 😊 I think I’m in the spirit of the season already! 🎅🏻🎄💥

Here are a few pics from the last couple days …

Family and Old Friends are what makes the Holidays special!

We even took part in an Awesome Podcast with some Old Friends!

Awesome podcast with Matt, Motel, Jason & crew!

I hope we all have a wonderful Christmas Season! Today is the 1st. day of December, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye 👁 Slow down & enjoy 😊

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you’ve been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And happy New Year, too

Merry Christmas 🎄

Throwback Thursday… #throwbackthursday

I’ve been going through pictures again 😊 Grouping, dating, archiving, etc… I LOVE timeline photos equally as well as I do “before and after” pictures of projects and places. Here’s a couple of my sister and me – Kids (early 70’s), Young adults (89) & a fairly recent one. Wow! How time flies !

We haven’t aged tooo bad… I mean, I’ve seen worse 😊 Christie looks great!

My offering for #throwbackthursday !

 

PS: 1989 is the year I started my business! I was just a kid 😊
