Danny had the "Little Package" last night & decided to let her try a piece of chocolate. Of course I couldn't capture her sticking her tongue out & licking it BUT it was so funny when she just stopped in mid LICK & turned to me & smiled, as if to say "YES! I LOVE THIS!!".

I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas. It is the day we celebrate the birth of our Savior JESUS the CHRIST. I hope you will celebrate it in a manner that will truly give HIM glory!

When my Parents-n-law vacationed at Tybee Island in September.....they spotted this beggar 3 stories below their balcony. Apparently there wasnt anything he didn't like. I fed him Fiddle Faddle, Danny fed him sausage, & Kevin fed him bread. He ate a good size meal & left. He came back everyday & would sit there looking up, waiting for you to throw him a meal. At least he didnt steal it!!!!!!!

Gandalf the White alerted us to the PECAN STEALER! This was taken in September when the booty was good.

Our Little Package is going to the doctor this morning to get her first immunization injections. Despite being a nurse....I DO NOT DO WELL with babies or children. I help with the admission paper work on the pediatric patients from time to time but that is about all I can handle. I helped hold a 2 year old the other day while his IV was being resited.....I came out balling. Friday a young father came to the nurses station in a panic because his baby's IV infiltrated causing the baby's hand to swell. I was the only nurse available so I went in & came out balling. The thoughts of it now makes me shaky. SOOOOOOO off I go this morning with my Little Package to the doctor. I'm afraid it will all be more traumatic to me than to her!!! I hope yall had a nice weekend. It is hot & muggy here today.

Danny took these pictures one morning while I was at work. He never did find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Who needs a pot of gold anyway.....I'm blessed beyond any pot of gold's measure! Well I have to work the next 3 days in a row at the hospital.....hope yall all have a good weekend!!

What am I gonna do now?

One of my fishin partners (from The Old Geezer Club) called me the other night to give me the latest on the lake we like to fish at in Florida. Due to the extreme lack of rain the hydrillas have taken over. Thats them lily pad looking things. He told me you cant even launch your boat now! Since pecan season is over & cold weather is settin in, it will soon be time to white perch fish. My thoughts are drifting to the fun Danny & I have in the up-coming white perch fishin & turkey hunting! Spring brings Bass fishin! Dawg I'm ready to go somewhere! There is another lake we can fish at in Florida but the place we use to stay at burned I just dont know what we are gonna do about our fishin. Well we still have a little while to study on it all. In the mean time I have a little 9 week old package in my lap that will keep me busy. Boy it will be exciting when she is old enough to go with her Meme & Papa on some of their outdoor adventures!

I ran into two Pennsylvania brothers at Mama's blog last week.
They both love wildlife photography & have some interesting views on hunting. I love to hunt....if its actually hunting. It appears their state is having a managed hunt on the Elk there. These guys are raising some pretty good questions about the hunting in PA. Anyway, these fellas have some NICE NICE PHOTOS that really make me jealous! My two recent posts show some of the Elk pictures I took last year at Catalooche Valley, North Carolina. Danny & I went during the pre-rut season. It was raining the first day we went but immediately we heard the Bulls bugling! TV does not do them justice! It is an awesome sound! The scrape on the tree caused Danny & I to do a double take! You just don't see stuff like that in South Georgia! It was an experience I will never forget & a reminder of how Great GOD is! He made those big-ole beasts! AMAZING!!
Sorry fellas....I am a blogging idiot & cant figure out how to get your web addresses to do right! My Mama will come & fix it for me when she reads this post!! LOL!

Well I haven't ever participated in Mama's Sky Watch and I've never used Mr. Linky so this is a pure TRIAL & ERROR THING FOR ME!!!! In September my parents-n-law rented a condo on Tybee Island. It's near Savannah, Georgia and the fishing is really great there......they say. I HATE SALT WATER FISHING and will get out of it if at all possible. (I love freshwater fishing!) So as soon as the sun started to go down that day, I tried to capture the show. It was sooooo beautiful! How can anyone question GOD'S existence after seeing something like this!!

Well we are getting closer to the end of the pecan harvest. You can see what one truck load of nuts looks like. We are guesstimating a 30,000 pound total. We will know for sure at the end of the week. The pictures show Danny picking up the nuts with the harvester. When the hopper is full, he dumps them into a wagon where they are carried to the building. Then we clean, grade, bag, & load. In about 2 more years we will eliminate the use of our trailers and have the buyer send his transfer trucks out to get them. That will be nice! When the buyer can get 40,000 pounds or more, he sends his own trucks out. Since we have a young farm, an increase in production is expected. The last picture shows part of the orchard after harvesting. CLEAN AS A WHISTLE! We are keeping our fingers crossed on prices.....farming is a heck of a gamble and one I don't enjoy!! That's whats been going on here. This is what we work for all year long. GOD has been good to us no matter what the market holds.

Just a few pictures of Chaslynn.
She is 7 weeks old now & becoming a little butterball.
Chaslynn & her Daddy Chad. (Yes he's a little dirty from helping with pecans but dirt cant get in the way of Daddy & daughter!)
The "Little Package" and her Papa.
The "Little Package" Cheezin in her Meme's arms.
Chaslynn and Mama Alyssa.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!! There just aint words!

Sister Three has sent me the cutest messages wondering where I have been. No I aint dead & NO I AINT VOTING FOR HILL-LUR-REE!!! LOL!This 4 pound & 9oz package came into my life on October the 5th. Chasalynn Deloris Stone. This is not Danny's first grand but it is mine. I tried to NOT become CRAZY over her.....but it happened anyway. I'm ate up with her!! She was born 5 weeks early but all is well. I took her & her mama to the doctor Thursday & now she weighs 6 pounds and 9 ounces!!! Good night! She spent her first night away from home friday with me & her Papa. Chad & Alyssa live in the next town from here, actually about 1\2 a mile from Danny's business. AND since Chad works with Danny, Danny goes to see her every day. All of the other grands & great-grands live there too so I have to fight to see the baby sometimes! So between doing pecans & having a new baby.....well I'm a little occupied. lol So that is what I have been doing...hehe. I miss all of yall.

A cool Fall morning.
Waning of the moon.
A field of dreams....a closer shot shows how I wish it would be for me next turkey season!
And we wonder what happened to the bees! Have you ever seen a spider like that before?

Been busy with the hospital move & now getting ready for pecan season. I haven't forgotten anyone! I'll drop by & see all my blog friends this week if all is well. MISS YALL!!

You cant get on the Internet or go shopping in any store without seeing FALL advertised. I'm not complaining! And for the first time since we've planted pecan trees....I AM REALLY EXCITED ABOUT HARVEST TIME! As you can see we are already harvesting grapes off the vine. Danny & I have already made one batch of the black grape jelly. Don't you love the color of the grapes! Now I am a person that doesn't like much change but I love how GOD is smarter and knows my needs better than me......why else would HE send the Seasons! I see HIS work in those grapes, the beauty of HIM. I don't know about you but that just excites me! GOD cared enough about me & Danny to give us such a pretty spot in HIS world and then confirms HIS love for us often. I see it all the time but it is just so evident to me when I look at the change in the Seasons....when I look at the beauty of the grapevine and it's produce.

The pecan crop is coming on nicely but we are not counting our nuts until they are hatched....and bagged up! The pests & diseases have been a pain & a lot of work but maybe it will be a good crop in the end. This is considered an "ON" year for pecan growers so I am a little worried about prices. BUT we will rob that train when it gets here. In the mean time the hospital I work at is MIGHTY BUSY right now. For the past 2 years, construction has been going on for our new facility. On September the 22nd we will move in!! I spent most of the day Wednesday touring & inservicing there. It is beautiful!! You can see a picture of our old one story hospital & then a picture of our new FOUR STORY hospital!! BLING-BLING!! I am so excited! The equipment is really state of the art and the decorating is beautiful! We have outgrown our old hospital & it is very outdated. Now I am thrilled that the facility will match our care which I believe is FOUR STAR! Our community is very blessed with excellent health care workers & now a nice new updated facility.
