About Town.....

  I always love seeing our courthouse.  Look at the blue sky.  Loving it.
   Took a trip thru the park and by the pool.  I never see this pool without thinking of my daughters.  They all love swimming, or at least walking near waters.
  This is the park pavilion.    When it rains , many reunions have been held inside.  Truly now in this heat, it's preferable to sit inside even if it's not raining. The storms we had this summer have taken down many trees in the park and caused many to be topped for safety.
 The building between all the blue is our hospital. The blue buildings are dugouts for the ball diamonds. The one on the right is the concession stand and announcers booth. . The parking barriers are blue also. That's our school color of blue.  
  Today is a very nice day. Lots of sunshine and blue skies. Everyone trying to squeeze in a bit more summer before school is in full swing. June and July were record months for rain around here...so it's not like we had a full summer to begin with.  I can't help but laugh, I honestly would be mad enough to bite nails into if I had to go back to school so soon.
  I want to wish all of you a great weekend. Hug your kids, tell how much you love them....they are growing up. Enjoy some time with them. XO

  5. I soooo love your cute town and all the post and pics you do to show how cute it is. I remember when I came down for the Market show a few years ago it felt like being in Mayberry. So sweet of a quaint town. Have a great week end.

    1. Thank you Kris, I love our town. I would like for more things to be done to improve it...for stores and jobs.. We used to have many stores , but big stores in nearby towns ruin small businesses. I try to buy here to keep what we have going. Hope you have a nice weekend, xoxo,Susie

    1. Linda, I understand what you are saying about just "2" kids. LOL. Whenever one or two of my daughters would be over friends houses, I would have less children to manage....it was easier at times. For some reason, when all my daughters would be in their beds asleep...I would just have such peace in my heart. I guess knowing we had survived another day and they were resting , all near me, and all was right with my world. I think that is still when I am happiest, when my daughters are with me. Enjoy your time with the grands and keep your eye on LD. Blessings too all of you, love you, Susie

    1. Mildred, I can tell you are a loving person by your blog. The last time I spoke with my brother Miles, he has been gone some years now...I play that scene over and over in my mind, I am putting mulch down and weeding, as my brother stands near and talking to me....once I found out he was killed along with his wife in an accident...I can't remember telling him I loved him when he left. But Ted says none of my siblings & I , ever left the other, no matter what we are doing without saying, " bye, I love you." I feel it's important to let others know how we feel. That we love them. I do love my blog family too. Love you,xoxo,Susie

  9. Hi Susie, thank you so much for your comment. I have tried over and over to add your blog on the blogroll at my new blog. The name is there, where I added it but it doesn't yet show in the roll. I don't know why but I remember trying to add it once before. I lost others that were on my old blog and have loved reconnecting with them through Kris' post today. But I wanted to say hi, and I'm going to try again, take it off and then try to reenter it if it hasn't appeared yet. So good to see you again, and pictures of the lovely town you live in.

    1. Hi Dewena, So glad you stopped by my blog. I have you on my favorites list...cause I do not know how to add anyone to my side bar ..Afraid to try to do it on my own , for fear of losing my blog site or favorites . I am dense when it comes to computer things. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  10. I always like to see different courthouses. This time of year they are busy with people working on their genealogy.

    1. Hi Ann, I love that old smell of our courthouse...It used to smell like cigars and cigarettes when so many people smoked and there were no rules about it. But I think the lingering of all those years helps make that old smell. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  11. Deep down I still get those feelings of dread as the new school year approaches.
    The courthouse is a beautiful building. I really like interesting architecture.

    1. Paul, When I think about it...I remember that sense of dread also. Not knowing who would be in my room to torment me ...was part of it. We were a poor bunch and were made fun of all the time. You know it wasn't like we were mean or disrespectful to anyone. I love our old courthouse. It used to have an Indian mummy in a case ...no more. It still has a small museum. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  13. Hi Susie, I love wonderful landmarks like this that make a town. Never tire of seeing the ones here in small Alpine! We had record rainfall for July as well. Kind of nice for a change. Have a wonderful week!

  14. Susie, thanks for taking me along with you through your town. Your school colors were blue? Mine were orange and black. I so remember the swimming pool in our town because I took lessons there when I was a kid. :~)

    I can't believe you are having storms in August! It just goes to show we never know what the weather is going to do next. Maybe we'll get some rain. :~)

    love, ~Sheri
