Happy Halloween!

Today was all about the kids and Halloween. What fun! First, we spent the whole afternoon at the zoo.

After that, we went to the Halloween Party at their church.


Finally, they were able to come home and go Trick or Treating. They had a great time and ended up with quite the stash! Gramma even got a couple of Butterfingers out of the deal :)

Road Trip!




It's time to visit the grandkids in Nashville! We left home about 8:30 AM and arrived there about 4:30 PM Nashville time. What a wonderful weekend to take a trip through the North Carolina and Tennessee mountains! Natures color palette was at her peak. Pictures cannot capture the beauty but I tried :)

It's been a long time and it's not over yet...



1981


The last year North Carolina beat Virginia in Virginia.




Virginia 16, North Carolina 13 in OT




Guess it'll be a bit longer before that record is broken.

Carolina 29 Notre Dame 24

What a football game! A great win, in spite of the officials. They liked to have given me a heart attack once or twice! Another fun Saturday watching the Tarheels play. They have certainly become a real football team this year. It's so much fun to watch.

Tonight is my 40th high school reunion. I can't be there but I did do the website for the reunion. It's at http://ghs1968.blogspot.com/ I'm real happy with the way it turned out; especially since I used blogger and just tweaked it to mimic a website :)

Aaaaccckkk! Economy Woes


Is retirement even possible at this point? It may be a ways off. Thankfully we are both healthy and still have our jobs. This, too, shall pass.
