Good Old Summertime

It’s Hot Hot Hot here in Dallas, but we are  having a cool  summer so far!  We began May with our last trip to Clemson University to celebrate Davis’ graduation. Here are a few words to sum up everybody’s feeling’s about closing the chapter of life on Clemson: happy, proud, and most simply, DONE.

Fortunately, Clemson and Greenville are about thirty minutes from each other. So, we got to visit Meg, Travis, and our granddaughter, Ridley! What a JOY she is!!! And one happy baby, I might add.

After Greenville, we made the easy hour and a half drive up to Charlotte, North Carolina to visit our middle daughter, Jill and her husband Ryan. Pretty cute couple, wouldn’t you say?


Believe it or not, Davis brought home a lady friend from college. That is, he brought home his dog named Lady. She is a Treeing Walker Coonhound, and we have absolutely fallen for her!

For the Fourth of July weekend, we all gathered again in North Carolina and had a wonderful time in the charming town of Linville. We did hiking, swimming, golfing, biking, and of course plenty of time playing with Ridley. (Our new favorite pastime.)

Ridley’s First Fourth of July!!

Pops and Grandmommy just ate her up!

So grateful that even though our children live far away from us, they are close to each other, and they live in WONDERFUL places to visit!

    Your blog was a visual treat! Loved the pix—-all of them. Precious little Ridley with those bright eyes and rosy cheeks that I just want to tweak.
