11.17.16 We’ve been busy since we’ve been home

Thursday, November 17, 2016 – Roy and I have been busy working on our property since we got back to Amite, Louisiana.  Digging up weeds, planting flowers (mostly pansies and mexican heather), pruning rose bushes, painting some things, pressure washing the house, storage building, and Dora our motor home. My hands are full of scratches, scrapes and look atrocious but I’ve enjoyed the digging, clipping and cutting and the finished product.

20161114_111346 20161114_111309

All of the large and medium rocks we brought home with us from each state we visited have found their home in the gardens.

20161117_114541 20161117_114537

Our fig trees are still small but they have about a dozen figs ripening.  The satsuma trees have about 6 nice satsumas.  Madisyn enjoyed picking and eating one on Sunday! The blueberry bushes finished producing months ago so now we’ve covered them with piles of leaves protecting them till next years crop starts.

20161111_151311 20161111_151226

Some of last year’s bulbs are beginning to sprout.  They are now covered with pine straw to protect them from winter freezes.  You know that one hour per month overnight when the weather goes below freezing here in Louisiana!


We planted three of these to the right of the house and they got so large Roy separated them and planted one in a cluster of trees near the pond.  20161111_151142

The gardenias are blooming and quite happy with the pine straw added to the beds.20161115_145003

I cut off the tops of the pretties red blooming roses who are also happy with the pine straw bedding.20161115_144955

Our pond water is way way low now.  Way different than the photos our renters sent us after the August flooding when it was 3 feet over the culvert.  It’s been so dry here I’m surprised anything has lived but it’s getting a good daily watering now so things are starting to recover and bloom.  I’m quite thankful to our renters for the watering of our fruit trees and rose bushes that kept them healthy through the drought.

After the flood


This is from on top of the culvert looking out into the pond.  There is approximately 15 of dry land there now.  I think it needs a deck now!img959933

We’re planning to stay home well into the summer next year.  We’ll hopefully have more family time together, more time to enjoy our beautiful property while still getting two to three months of traveling away from the South during the hottest of the summer months.

One day last week I visited one of my doctors and had a wonderful lunch with some of my favorite ladies from work at Southeastern Louisiana University.  We ate at La Caretta in Hammond which is one of my favorite lunch places.  Three of the four of them (Jacqueline, Cindy and Donna) had their homes destroyed in the August flooding.  They shared the progress they are making and while all three have not been able to live in their homes since the flood, they should all be by Christmas!  The fourth lady, is my buddy Sandy.  For years she and I have planned to live together after our husbands are no longer with us.  I had a wonderfully heartwarming experience being with these wonderful ladies again.  I can’t believe I didn’t take any pictures, I know right??!!

Madisyn and Chip came to visit us Sunday which put a major smile on my face and in my heart.  She has always been able to do that and hasn’t lost her touch! The love that flows through that little girls arms as she wraps them around me is the best medicine anyone could get!

First two are she and Roy’s favorite position!  When we lived in our house she use to tuck up under his arm on the sofa recliner.

20161113_173721 20161113_172943

She created a blog with me about a year ago and Sunday asked if she could create a Silly Sunday with Madisyn blog.  Here she is working on it!20161113_171804

Roy and Chip visited outside by the campfire while Madisyn and I played with crafts inside.20161113_163522 20161113_163312

My great nephew Joseph got married to Brooke the first weekend we were home.  The wedding and reception were beautiful and best of all we had a grand ole time visiting with family. When I was a child I grew up having family gatherings with my sister’s husband George’s family.  That included his brother Bobby and his absolutely wonderful top notch wife Marilyn.  We got to visit with them at the wedding!

George and his daughter Dana’s daughter Annie!

14947438_10211151238839997_1109619519907414931_nChip came to visit us in Amite on Wednesday.  He and Roy installed new headlights on Boots our truck.  Chip and Misty gave them to Roy for his birthday earlier this year.  They make such a big difference to the look of the truck but it will make a huge difference when we’re driving at night.


Our lawn mower needed some maintenance which included Roy and I pushing it up the hill from down by the pond to near the compressor is so Roy could fill the tires and begin some of the maintenance.  We made a pretty good team on the not at all easy project of pushing!  What a picture that would have made.  Roy’s outside working on the maintenance part now.  That man never stops working.  20161117_114522

Things are changing for Roy and I work wise (income producing work) and when it all works itself out I’ll share what I can!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!

This scripture shouted out at me because of some recent trials.  God loves me and with Him in my life there is always JOY in my heart and life.

11.15.16 Judge Jeanine: ‘This Wasn’t an Election, It Was a Revolution’

A lot of these news reporters are new to us but since starting to watch Fox News during the election (the only non biased station) I’ve come to like the thinking of Judge Jeanine.  When I heard her give this report this week I knew I wanted to share it with you all. I’ve had so many thoughts since last Tuesday reflecting back on the campaign and when I heard this I heard alot of my thoughts.


Judge Jeanine: ‘This Wasn’t an Election, It Was a Revolution’

Judge Jeanine Pirro gave an emotional Opening Statement last night on Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the 2016 election.”They told you you didn’t matter, that if you supported him you were probably uneducated, small-minded and irrelevant, you were beneath them,” Judge Jeanine said.

“Even though we felt forgotten, alone and beaten down, we all came home, because this wasn’t an election, it was a revolution.”

At 10:32 a.m. today I received a phone call from President-elect Donald j. Trump who has known me since my time as a county court judge and elected district attorney. He stated that he looks forward to beginning the process of making America great again and thanks justice and all its viewers for their support.

I am honored to have had the privilege to speak with both the president-elect and his beautiful wife, future first lady Melania, as America embarks on this special journey.

And it’s been one amazing, wild, unpredictable ride.

You’ve been with me the whole time – thank you for that.

Now I told you from the beginning to strap in, that it would be a revolution – indeed it was.

Within the first moment of President-elect Donald trump’s victory speech he showed how elegant he was by congratulating Hillary Clinton.

And not surprisingly he reached out to Mitt Romney, and spoke with Jeb Bush and John Kasich… Republicans who worked hard against him… As well as offering to be a president to all– even those who violently opposed him.

And as for the campaign itself… They told you you didn’t matter, that if you supported him you were probably uneducated, small-minded and irrelevant, you were beneath them.

That if you wanted closed borders – a nation state – you weren’t Christian enough, not American enough, not big hearted enough.

That if you didn’t see racism in every cop who walked the beat you probably were a racist yourself.

That if you used the term Muslim jihadist instead of terrorist you were an anti-religious bigot.

Truth and honesty had no place in their politically correct society.

If you opposed sanctuary cities where the protection of illegal criminal immigrants was the law you were a hateful bigoted xenophobe. They simply knew better than you.

They tried to convince you that ObamaCare was great when all the while your deductible and premiums were sky rocketing.

That the economy wasn’t that bad, yet you had to work two and three jobs to get along. Jobs that shipped overseas didn’t matter to them because they were part of the global economy.

She even called you deplorable, irredeemable and not America. If you didn’t support her, you probably hated women and were backward. They tried to convince you a lie wasn’t a lie if it came from her mouth.

The media– so corrupt that they shared debate questions with her to give her the edge– tried to beat you down by repeatedly telling you it was useless to even show up at the polls.

And even though the president of the United States did his best on the eve of the election to trash him and mock him as a joke and unfit, bringing out out Jay-Z, Springsteen, Beyoncé, Gaga… It didn’t matter.

In spite of it all we all, even though we felt forgotten, alone and beaten down, we all came home because this wasn’t an election– it was a revolution. We came home to where our forefathers in their genius had always planned back to America…

Back to who we are… Back to the constitution…

And yes Mr. soon to be ex-president Obama we can now proudly cling to our guns, our religion…

And now our new President-elect Donald J Trump.


Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!!



11.11.16 Thank You To All United States Veterans For Your Service




We all know men and women who have served or are serving now in our military.

I hope you all join me in saying a big


Thank you soldier for your time spent away from your family serving our country and preserving our freedom.

Thank you soldier for laying your life on the line by serving our country and preserving our freedom.

Thank you to those who were able to share God’s love and saving grace with those in foreign countries while you served.

I especially thank those soldiers who served in the Vietnam War and were never thanked properly by those you were fighting to protect.

Thank you to my son, who served in Iraq.  I am quite proud and thankful for his military service  and desire to share the Word of God with the Iraqis.

To all the men and women I know that have serve, you are all Heros in my eyes.

Below are a couple of videos I thought were especially appropriate to convey my appreciation for all Veteran’s service.  Look at the faces of these young men and women as they train, as they prepare to leave their loved ones, as they serve and as they return.  These are our true American Heros.  They are short videos so take a break and be reminded of their service and sacrifice.

The last video is not necessarily just for Veterans but when I stumbled across it I thought it was something that young and old parents might want to gather their children around the computer to watch and listen to.  Too many of our American traditions are being compromised and Red Skelton’s Pledge of Allegiance is important for our children to hear and learn from.

Click on each picture to connect to the video.

 SO GOD MADE A SOLDIERso god made a soldier


When I heard the last few sentences it gave me chills.  We must always keep God in every part of our American life.

11.10.2016 The God Factor

Billy Graham’s son, Franklin Graham whom I admire as a Godly man, wrote the four paragraphs below.  When President Elect Donald Trump won the Presidency on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning I knew the power of Prayer and God was all over this but he says this so much better than I could.  Here’s Mr. Graham’s statement.

Did God show up? In watching the news after the election, the secular media keep asking “How did this happen?” “What went wrong?” “How did we miss this?” Some are in shock. Political pundits are stunned. Many thought the Trump/Pence ticket didn’t have a chance. None of them understand the God-factor.

Hundreds of thousands of Christians from across the United States have been praying. This year they came out to every state capitol to pray for this election and for the future of America. Prayer groups were started. Families prayed. Churches prayed. Then Christians went to the polls, and God showed up.

While the media scratches their heads and tries to understand how this happened, I believe that God’s hand intervened Tuesday night to stop the godless, atheistic progressive agenda from taking control of our country.

President-elect Donald J. Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence are going to need a lot of help and they will continue to need a lot of prayer. I pray that President-elect Trump will surround himself with godly men and women to help advise and counsel him as he leads the nation. My prayer is that God will bless America again!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!

UPDATE:  Our ballots were received in South Dakota last week!  Tomorrow is too important for me not to share this again.  Nothing has changed in our minds since we originally wrote this.  Only that we are more sure than ever that our vote for Donald J. Trump is the right one.  Please go out on Tuesday and vote,


20161014_105846Tuesday, October 18, 2016 – Roy and I voted today for Donald J Trump, President of the United States! Yes, we voted by absentee, and placed our ballots in the mail. We have never held any public office. We are just your average everyday citizen just like you. We feel that this election is so important and that the outcome will change America for better or worse for many years to come that we felt the need to express our opinions.

If you agree with our feelings, please share this on your own blog or on your Facebook page. Please help us share this with everyone about this most important vote.

While we filled in the circle on the ballot next to Trump’s name, what we are actually voting for and against are what we feel Donald J. Trump will do for America that we agree with and against what Hillary Clinton will do to America that we can’t agree with.


For America to have a President we can trust to nominate men and women to the Supreme Court who will defend the constitution and support religious freedoms.

For America to have a chance of repealing Roe vs Wade.

For America to have a chance to get back to the values we once held dear.

For America to have a chance to being a Great Nation again by having a President with a backbone instead of one with his/her own agenda.

For America to have a chance to once again be a country upholding moral, Christian values.

For America to have a Vice President proud to be a Christian, Mike Pence.

For America to have a strong military again.

For America to be free from Obamacare.

For America to be a land where English is the only language and being an American (with previous American values) is most important.

For America to go back to being a country where we aren’t pushed to support the Muslim Obama narrative.

For America to be a land where legal immigrants are welcomed openly and illegal immigrants are sent back to their countries. A country where refugees from known terrorist countries are not pushed on us.

For America to put the welfare of our men and women who are serving and have served in the military to take precedence before providing for those illegal immigrants.

For America to show the media that we are not ignorant followers of the lies they spew forth to sway the election for Hillary Clinton.

We share the concerns Donald J. Trump has about America, not the media’s version of his values.


Hillary Clinton is committed to enacting policies that will erode religious liberty, promote abortion, make our country less safe, and leave our boarders unprotected.14718678_10153979510122596_5605215576852809097_n

Hillary Clinton is a person who no one can deny deserves to be in prison for the criminal acts she has committed. It has become clear that there are two standards of justice in the US, one if you’re a Clinton and one for the rest of us.

Hillary Clinton is someone who can’t remember a decision she made, a lie she told, an order she gave, over and over and over.

Hillary Clinton would nominate Supreme Court justices like herself, who do not uphold the constitution.

Hillary Clinton would allow abortion to continue to run rampant through our country. Abortion is murder no matter how you look at it.

Hillary Clinton would allow more illegal immigrants to run rampant through our country.

Hillary Clinton would continue to allow our wounded service men and women to receive subpar treatment while providing benefits to illegal immigrants.

Hillary Clinton has a misguided belief that her time is now to be President. She feels this is owed to her after all these years.

Hillary Clinton’s actions as Secretary of State have weakened America’s position in the world. Imagine what her being President would do to us.

Hillary Clinton is a deceitful woman who did everything possible to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders and so much more that has been coming out in just the last few days, including hiring people to create chaos at Trump events to make him look bad.

Hillary Clinton is a woman who seemingly has the connections and power to turn our FBI into her servants with no regard for the truth.

We do not want a “First Man” in the White House where he abused his power, sexually and mentally abused women. With the support of his wife they threatened those same women to keep quiet.


Here is a quote from our friend David who is a lawyer and a Christian, “We currently have an administration that celebrates it’s rejection of the historic Biblical view of marriage from the seat of power, the White House itself (as you’ll recall, they changed the lights to rainbows to celebrate the Supreme Court decision). We have a president who mocks Romans 1 and it’s reference to sexuality in order to promote his own view, and claims that the Sermon on the Mount was actually promoting his view of sexuality and marriage.”

What has happened to this country over the last 8 years has to stop. We truly believe that Donald J. Trump is the man who can make the changes we need to get us back to the country that we once had and can be proud of again. Do we believe he’s a perfect man? No, he is far from it. While neither candidate is perfect, we choose the one who hasn’t already been proven over and over to lie, to cover up, to turn her back on our military, and to make poor decisions for our country. Hillary Clinton is deplorable and anyone voting for her needs to wake up and see the real Hillary Clinton. We do not choose to stand on the sidelines and see America deteriorate even further by continuing the policies of the last eight years.

We are willing to vote for the political outsider like Donald J. Trump rather than the insider, oh so bought and paid for, Hillary Clinton. Those “Never Trumpers” and GOP representatives who are turning their backs on Donald J. Trump should be ashamed of themselves. They are political insiders just like Hillary Clinton and don’t want to see anything changed to affect their cushy rides.

I hope you will join us in taking the step to elect Donald J. Trump as our next President of the United States of America.
