Dennis The Menace!!!
Just a quick update. (who knew I'd make the time?) We were unable to go on our road trip after all yesterday afternoon. The hubs didn't get home from work until 9:30 last night. He's working on a new Walmart Super Center and his deadline is Monday. So - he put in 13 hours yesterday to have that out of his way. He was so disappointed that Stephen was disappointed, he wanted to try to go today. We checked the weather and really thought things were not going to get bad until late tomorrow. We heard wrong. Oh, it's going to be bad tomorrow, but it started early this evening. We came all the way back home. Stephen didn't mind. He was just happy to see something different. We stopped and had a huge meal at O'Charley's in Oxford Alabama and he was an angel, if I do say so myself. He knew he'd been a good boy and when we got back in the truck, he applauded himself. As you can see in the photos above, the clouds started to roll in. It was pouring down rain. So hard, it was difficult to see. The wind was blowing like crazy. Lightening all around. I'm glad to be home. The interstate's southbound lane has been closed between Montgomery and Mobile so all lanes can be used for those trying to flee from the gulf areas. Hotels were full, everywhere. Restaurants were overcrowded. God bless them all. Everyone we managed to talk to seemed to be in really good spirits, considering. I was over at Swirly's journal (Coffee Swirls and One Girl's World) and read that her nephew had to move his 4th birthday party indoors. Bummer. Poor baby. I hope he had a great birthday anyway! Deb of, "The Making of a Home" I hope y'all are also hanging on over there in the Atlanta area. Please stay in touch and let us all know how you are doing. I'll try to do the same. For now, I'm beat and I'm going to call it a night!
