Yes!!! Today IS a SNOW DAY!!!!!

No two words can instantly bring about a range of emotions for students, their parents, and teachers as the two little words, "SNOW DAY."  Coupled with the fact that the make-up day for this little holiday is Saturday, and you instantly have a love-hate relationship on the horizon.

Yes, the recent winter storm gave us not only a snow day, but a day of school on Saturday.  We'll survive it I am sure, but we're not so sure how much actual learning will take place on this particular Saturday.  

Rob was out early to take some pictures, and here's a few of them.....

Have a great day!!!  Be careful if your out and about.  

Until next time, stay safe out there......-R,T,&J!

A Sign To Plan Ahead.....

Happy Tuesday everyone.  Yesterday was a school holiday for us here in North Carolina.  Trisha spent the day at the hospital with her mom Anne, who had to get another chemo treatment.  Rob spend the morning at the Endodontist, having a twenty year old root canal retreated.  Such fun.  NOT!!

Today and tomorrow are teacher workdays for us (semester break.)  Trisha opted to work, Rob opted not to.  So this morning after taking Trisha to breakfast, Rob struck out to Statesville to a couple of places (one of which was Camping World) he wanted to go.  

At one of the stores, as he was leaving he spied this sign.  Yes a sign, and we know Rob loves signs.  This sign was only $2.00, and it made Rob think about camping fun.  Specifically, Blue Ridge Rally Camping Fun.  Here's a picture of that wonderful sign......

You see, for any of you who've never been to a Blue Ridge Rally, Cornhole has become a tradition.  Heck at most any of Cousin Sharon's camping "to-do's" you will find a game of Cornhole going on.  So Rob just had to have this sign!!

Oh and by the way, in other unrelated to camping at all bit of news, as of last Thursday we have a bright shiny new 3-ton A/C and furnace installed here at our house.  Double UGH!!  

Hang in there everyone, camping season is just around the corner.

Until next time, stay safe out there.....-R,T,&J.

A Sign of The Times......

Well Happy January everyone!!  As if January is a happy month, what with taxes, New Year's resolutions, cold, rain, snow, etc.  It is the month when us bloggers really have to struggle to find things to blog about.  

If you would happen to jump over to Cousin Sharon's Postcards Blog (click on the link in the sidebar), you'll see what I'm talking about.  She's become so bored, stir crazy, house hoppy, she has started organizing everything!!  Well we're here to tell you Rob has done the same thing to his shop!!  Oh for warmer weather.  Now we won't bore you with pictures of Rob's shop, but Rob wanted to share some pictures of signs from this past season.  

He loves signs.  He says they remind him of places visited during better weather.  Plus it's also fun to see if you can figure out where the signs are from.  

Well that's enough for now.  Most of these are easy to identify, a couple maybe not.  Rob says we have to save some for February.  Ugh, February.    At any rate, thanks for checking by today!

Until next time, stay safe out there......-R,T,&J.
