This, Jobe, is your last chance




I live on a farm between Nolensville and Triune where a historical marker tells the short version of Private Dee Jobe








Many good men who passed the spot


Would think of Jobe and the deal he got,


Or cross themselves like nuns.


And say, on nights when the dark clouds toss,


Can you hear the clatter of a runnin' hoss?


Oh, Lawdy! What's the matter? But nobody talks.


The clatter stops and the ghost hoss walks.


It's the Yankees teachin' Dee Jobe who's boss


.... At the point of 15 guns.

where the wild things are


Say hi to "Chuck" the Rodent of Unusual Size...




Chuck is a friendly woodchuck that enjoys wandering around the yard













He gets very close to the kitchen window






and holds a perfect pose



I hope to see Chuck and other wild things around

Ancestor Makeover




Meet Great Great Grandpa







This portrait hung in our home for years and was showing some serious signs of wear. The colors were fading and much of the detail was deteriorating






Then I found the original photo that was used to make the portrait:









So I had a new image produced in the correct size for the frame, and replaced the worn out print





It was a special surprsie for my Dear Husband...who has a strong family resemblance to this ancestor:
similar nose, same chin, and very distinctive eyes.

the moon is at her full

the moon is at her full
and riding high
floods the calm fields with light
the airs that hover
in the summer sky
are all asleep tonight


-William C. Bryant

gots skillz

If you've been following my blog for awhile, then you've heard all about my husband's bowling success....





or have you?
















Well, I'd like to report that Jody has done it again. The Big J threw a '300' game for a local tournament and he now enjoys a Rockstar/Superhero status! Jody is thrilled by the natural 300 and said "hey! I'm ready to bowl some more!"





The local tournament at Smyrna Bowling Center is a weekly event known as a 'no tap'. Special scoring applies to No Tap Tourneys: 9 pins count for a strike. This moves the games along quickly and increases the scores for all the bowlers.







Jody's accomplishment is remarkable in that all 12 of his strikes were 10-pins-in-the-pit. He didn't need the No Tap scoring in order to earn this perfect game!
Once my guy gets rolling...nobody can stop him
(((((hug)))))
