We've been really busy the last few days here in Moss Point working on a house rehab. I've not had much time to check blogs or even check emails. Today I am taking the morning off because of either a head/chest cold or inhaling cement dust. Either way I am feeling lousy. One morning of rest should help.
So this morning I am posting about our weekend up in Cullman, AL to see son Lennie, DIL Tammy and granddaughters Morgan and Maddie and great-grandson Jordan.
We left Moss Point on Friday for the 355 mile drive. Last year when tornadoes were hitting the south, Cullman got hit in a few areas. It was amazing to see the destruction for about 1/4 mile stretches then no damage at all. At that time we drove through 3 or 4 areas of destruction. These are pictures of how one area looks now, almost a year later.
We took Maddie shopping on Saturday morning so she could pick out a gift for Valentines day.
She wanted a stuffed animal. After a lot of deliberation she choose a dog that looks to be a cross between a Lab and a "wienie dog".
Later we took the family out for dinner. Maddie wanted to go to Ryans. What an excellent choice as we arrived about five minutes to 4 so paid the lunch price and got the dinner buffet. YIPPEE!
We left about 11 on Sunday for the long drive back and another week of work.
We are about through the house where we are mostly working on the outside. Yesterday we worked on finishing up the trim and removing a rotted out deck.
On Monday it's back to the house with roof leaks and mold. But first - a three day weekend.
