Here I Am Again!!

This past Thursday I took a trip to Danville, KY to a Senior Celebration Day. It was held at a church there. There was 5 from our church that went. I had some misgivings about going (had signed up a long time ago) but it turned out just wonderful. They had lots of neat things to do there and I'll probably blog about those later on. They had a wonderful gospel quartet called "Still Water," from Hopkinsville, KY. They were very, very good! It was a lovely day and, even though we were inside, it made the drive there and back a joy. It was the first time I had been north since the ice storm and I was amazed at all the trees that were broken, and especially the tops of the trees. It just went on and on and it seemed that very few trees were spared some damage.

This guy was there also to entertain us, and he was very entertaining indeed!! This is a terrible picture but I had to ask a total stranger to take the picture with my camera and she almost cut our heads off. He does a great job of imitating Mr. Bush!!




I thought these stained glass windows were a couple of the prettiest ones I've seen! You can click on them to see a larger photo!! Beautiful!!








Isn't this clementis bloom so very lovely!!!












I hope everyone has a blessed Sunday and week!!!

Sounds like a fun trip. Doing something different is always fun and I'm glad the drive was nice. Weather is getting nice, trees are blossoming, Spring is finally here. The stained glass IS beautiful. That is a class I would like to take. Have a fabulous week!

A sunny attitude will always win out.... Glad you had fun on your trip...It is hard looking at tree damage from the hurricane we had last September, I know how you feel.

This weeks Sunday Sign is my favorite. I love the saying on it.

He sure does resemble George Bush doesn't he? What award did you get? and did you get to keep it or was it just a prop for the picture? I'm just full of questions today.

That looked like a day of fun and aren't you glad that you went.

I had NO IDEA you and George W Bush were friends!

:-)

Those windows are so beautiful. I love stained glass windows.
It sounds like you had a really good time.

I like that Sunday sign. Yep, a sunny attitude can help break through those emotionally cloudy days.
Your sunny smile in that photo with W surely made me smile too, as well, also!

The resemblance to Geo Bush is uncanny! Love the stained glass. I know how much work went into those as Bill used to do stained glass pieces. Great Sunday sign!

You seem to have had a lovely outing.

Ice storms are very difficult on the trees not to mention the electrical transmission lines.

We had a very bad one several years ago across Southern Ontario and Quebec. In Winter temperatures the electricity was off for a couple of months in an are with a couple of large cities. The maple sugar bush trees were damaged I remember.

You mentioned PEI in your comment on my blog. You would love it. It is our smallest Province with only about 140,000 people. The Capital city, Charlottetown is really just a small town. of about 32,000 people. The Province is largely agricultural with many small towns and hamlets. The ocean is always close and of course, Anne of Green Gables themes is everywhere. I have visited the House of Green Gables. When I was there you could only get there by ferry. Now there is the Confederation Bridge. The province always struck me as a very civilized place to live. My American friends have gone back for years after our firs visit. They are now retired there.

Glad you had a good trip.

The stained glass windows are gorgeous!

That clematis almost glows and it's a beautiful color.

All the trees are broken here too, and so pitiful looking. I feel so sorry for them!

Good thought on the church sign.

Have great new week, Rachel. :o)

Love and hugs,

Diane

Those are sometimes the best trips...those that you have misgivings about but end up being so much fun:-) Sounds like you had a wonderful time and I'm sure it felt great to be out and about.

The stained glass windows are absolutely gorgeous! Love the picture of you and that guy...you look so lovely in pink:-) The clematis is also beautiful, mine hasn't even started to grow yet!

Hope you have a wonderful week, dear Rachel:-) xoxo

I'll bet having you around made the old folks feel young again. Glad you were able to do that for them.
You and the Prez look good together.
