In the Woods

Before Sam and I headed out to Sunday Park, we took a walk around the yard and through the woods. The only thing we were able to get a picture of was a squirrel high in a tree. He stayed long enough to get one shot and then when he heard us in the leaves. That was the end of him, off he scurried.

Day Out with Sam

While Larry had Andrew out hunting today, Sam stayed with me. He was getting bored, we had tried finding birds to take pictures of, but they are just too quick. We decided to take a short drive to Sunday Park since we knew there would be ducks . Sam was able to use his camera and I took some shots also. Sam even got to feed the ducks, a couple was there with their children and had a large bag of bird seed. They were giving it out to the othere children there so Sam got into the act. The water was full of sea gulls, more than I have seen there before.

Chris (my photo-buddy)

This is Chris-my photo buddy from Georgia. Chris grew up across the street from us. We spent part of the day at Maymont Park taking a few shots. I know his photos turn out so much better than mine but I just enjoy the time he allows to try help me do a little better. (For a few shots I took today, see

Christmas 2006 (Owens,Parsons,Petteys & Smiths)



Andrew said that before he and Poppaw left the drive, they asked the Lord to send him a deer. HE does answer prayers.

MY Deer & Turkey Shoot

I went out in the country with Larry today. He carried his gun and I took my camera so we both went on a shoot. In one location, I shot 2 deer and then out in a cornfield, way out in a corn field, I shot turkey. There were a total of 8 turkeys but I only got 6 in a couple of shots. They were just too far away to get a good picture. Oh by the way, Larry didn't even try. He actually just wanted to get out of the house (cabin fever).

Studying the Bible

Terry loves to look at books. He turns each page every so carefully, however, Mommy says if he gets upset he'll start tearing out the pages, so we watch him pretty close. This evening I picked up Cassie and Andrew along with Terry for supper. I do that since I take Cassie and Andrew to church and it starts about the time Alice gets home from work, so she doesn't have to rush in and try to get them fed. I then take Terry back home after I drop the others at church. He enjoys getting to GO. While here he said his NAME for Poppaw. That was such a thrill. He was as pleased as we were. He just beamed.

The WOO Family 1981

Ronnie Carter passed this picture along to me of Thomas Woo and family. Preacher Woo was the pastor at the Goodwill Center in Virginia Lee when I grew up. He, also, married Larry and I and Louie and Lois. When they left the St. Charles area and went to Texas, I believe that Tim was still a baby. Hope you enjoy seeing this.

Walter came by this morning to visit for a short while. Before he left, I took a few pictures of him and came up with this one to put on my wall. It's been a couple of years since I have changed the grandchildrens pictures. Still have 3 more to get. I sent this picture to Judy so you will see it on her blog also.

On my way back home from Mom's, I stopped on top of the mountain (Wallens Ridge) and took a number of pictures of the fog in the valley (Duffield).

I took Mom to Hillsville today to visit with Wanda (JoAnn). We all had a good time. The weather was very nice, a little brisk but as you can see by the pictures it was a beautiful day. The mountains, along with the wishing well, made a very nice background.

Terry looks like he is really studying the dictionary. He likes this book, doesn't like it when it taken away from him

We had a good time with Sam and Abby while Tim took Elda for a much needed time away. Even though it was a working vacation, they had a nice time.

Friday, September 01, 2006


8-30-06 While Elda had Abby and Cassie for a couple of days, I had the boys. They enjoy going to Sunday Park to take pictures of the ducks so off we went with the cameras. I took the pictures of the boys and they took the rest, even the one of me. I told Andrew he was as bad as Grandma, always taking pictures with the animals going away from us. HA We had an enjoyable time. Another mother was there with her children feeding bread to the ducks, so she gave Sam some to do the same. We will have to remember to take some with us the next time. Of course, with school starting back it will be awhile before we can do that with Andrew again.

Larry celebrated his 63rd birthday on the 22nd with dinner at Jim & Barbara's, along with John. We had a wonderful dinner and a marvelous dessert.

Today Larry and I had lunch with Barbara and Jim. Afterwards we had a short visit with Tim and Elda. Sam was having fun climbing a tree, with help from Daddy. I took these pictures and made a collage of them.

Abby had to have her picture taken also, so she decided the swing was for her.

Today I took Cassie & Abby to Sunday Park, the same as I did with their brothers a couple of weeks ago. Abby was terrified of the ducks and held on to either Cassie or me. After leaving the shore I finally got then to let me take pictures of them. Cassie didn't want any part of that but I did manage to get a couple of her. The wind was blowing which really helped with the heat (98) today but it didn't do much for the hair. I'm still pretty pleased with this picture.

The girls are spending a couple of nights with us. Abbie had climbed up in Poppaw's lap so I suggested Cassie stand with them so I could a picture of all three.

Cassie enjoying her watermelon. I blurred the picture but you can see she was really interested in what she was eating.

Abigail wasn't too sure if she like the watermelon.

While at Judy's, we watched Carla with the bird. She acts like she is protecting him. As soon as I got to the house she took me straight into the room where the bird was hanging. She really was showing him off.

While Danni & Ben were visiting on Saturday I took a number of pictures of Faith. She's teething so a finger went to the mouth. However, she looked straight into the camera. Posted by Picasa
