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

What Are Your Plans On Fat Tuesday?

Fat Tuesday is upon us! It doesn’t mean as much to us in Tennessee as it does to the folks down along the gulf, But if you live in Mobile or Fairhope or New Orleans or almost any town in those areas, it means an all day Party is at hand! Fat Tuesday translated from French means “Mardi Gras”!

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, a time for fasting and giving things up – BUT, not today! Today is a PARTY! Everyone eating & drinking & dancing & saying “laissez les bon temps rouler”! Which means – “let the good times roll.”

Now it seems everyone celebrates Mardi Gras, we even have a parade and celebration here in little Old Jackson, TN! 😊

My advice, have Fun! And, pace yourself!  And no matter what you do, don’t eat too much King Cake! 😂

 

Have a great Mardi Gras!

Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler! 🎈🎉
