September 11, 2001.....

a day I will never forget. I could not believe what I was hearing as I listened to the radio nor could I believe what I was seeing on the television. Why? I didn't understand then and I don't understand now, why it all happened. Our country's loss of life on that day was beyond comprehension. The images on TV were devastating. I did not personally know anyone that died but my heart ached just the same. I cried uncontrollably. I could not stop watching and listening to all the stories. I especially wanted to hear about the firefighters that gave their life trying to save others. I'm proud of each and every one of them. I'm proud of my husband, a firefighter, who risks his life on every call he goes on. I took his profession for granted until 9/11. Not anymore.

God Bless our Country and God Bless the families that had loved ones so tragically taken away.

Rebecca's Thyme....

is a fabulous primitive shop located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!! The first picture is the shop and the second picture is me and Rebecca. I had the pleasure of spending some time meeting Rebecca and browsing through all her goodies last week. She is a terrific lady and we became friends immediately. Too bad for her that I was in a little T'bird!! I just wanted to pick the store up and bring it home!! Wonderful handmade items from very talented artists. If you are ever in the area, you must go see her. Also, check out Rebecca's website!!! Thanks to Rebecca for making my trip much more fun!!

This is the little bird I was in. As you can see, no room for goodies!!! Not to worry, I'm going back in my Explorer and shop, shop, shop!!!! Taking a few friends with me too!!

Here is a picture of the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge. Beautiful setting!!
There are lots of ducks in the river. Hard to see in this picture but there are a couple there. We had a great time and great weather. No rain!! We always enjoy the show and spending time with friends.
That's it for now!! Have a great day~Chatty Kathy
