What is it???

Ok, so I have this plant that I thought was a wisteria, but it's not. I went out today and it had blooms all over it. They look like wisteria blooms but are maroon in color. The bush smells wonderful and the smell is all over the back yard. Does any one know what this is? Thanks D & B

Those of you that know me, know how much I hated that yellow mustard hardiplank exterior! We finally got the house painted and it looks SO much better! As soon as it cools off here a little bit, I'll start working on the landscaping. Today the high is only 98 with a heat index of 111. Fall is around the corner. D & B

Crawfish Time.....

We get out of the hospital, our 2nd stay, and what do we have to do??? Have a mud bug feast! We cooked 40lbs of crawfish, 4 lbs shrimp, corn on the cob and new potatoes! Yum! It is a lot of work, so it only gets done once a year. D & B

Bubba in the hospital

Bubba had to go into the hospital and was in there for 10 days. He is doing well now and he is back to his old self! All of that didn't have anything to do with the cancer. Thank you all for the prayers said in his behalf. They worked and God is Good! D & B

Robert & Marla visit

Robert & Marla came to visit just before Bubba went into the hospital also. It was nice to see all of our friends. D & B

Les & Diane Visit

Les & Diane came for a visit just before we went into the hospital. You can see Bubba has his walker with him. We did enjoy their visit! D & B

Beautiful Day...

A beautiful day on the lake and the best way to spend it is in the boat... trying to catch a fish. As Bubba would say 'a bad day fishing beats a good day at work everytime!' D & B

So I went to Lowe's and bought the light fixtures. And this wasn't all of them! D & B


OK, I know I have been remiss, but moving in has taken it's toll. I will try to catch up tonight. This is when they were doing the tile, and the walls are painted. D & B
