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!

Our Annual “April 1st Chilly Willy Pond Plunge” Will Be The Coldest EVER! | Jackson, Tennessee

“As Per Tradition”, we, the “Distinguished Few” will meet at the “Big Pond”, at the Nursery & Take our Annual ‘Chilly Willy Plunge” exactly at sunrise, which is 6:41am. In the morning! Always a fun event! But, tomorrow mornings ‘CWP’ will be taken at a crisp, 27 degrees Fahrenheit… A record low temperature! Can you say shrinkage 🥶

Get here early! Sunrise is 6:41am! You will need time to park and walk to the ponds edge. As you know, only about 15 people at a time have room to get in the pond comfortably, the 1st group in will be “first come, first in”! So I would get here early if you want to be in the official photo, that will probably be on the cover of the soon to be published Photo Book about our unique, little group! 🍾

I will open the gates as early as possible so everyone can get a number and get in position. I recommend that you come dressed in your chosen ‘Plunge attire’, wearing a robe or heavy coat & water shoes or flip flops. Some have even worn Cover All’s that they unzip and step right out of.

REMEMBER – Bring your own towels! 2 or 3 of them!

– Hot coco will be available.

Man, am I ready for this! 🌞 Viva La’ ‘Tradicion’!

He Haw y’all! See ya’ in the AM!

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Nothing fancy today! Just a collage of photos from days gone by with family and friends. YES, I’ve been sappy about going into a New Year… Excited, reflective, full of memories & dreams of the future 😊

#throwbackthursday!

This started as a single “#throwbackthursday photo… It turned into a bit of fun, at least for me 😊

Happy New Year!
