 Gerald and I left Woodsong on Wednesday as soon as we finished the lunch I’d carried in from town. Bags had been packed early in the morning, and the trunk was loaded with folding chairs and bags.  I’d laid out the sun screen, and our straw hats were in the car’s back window ledge. We...

Kudzu-covered trees line the roadways with leafy green cathedrals. Eye lids close against our will against our will in the heavy September heat and we shake ourselves back awake. We are in Georgia to watch grandaughter Geri Ann and the Oconee High School softball team. Two opening games Friday at...

As I drove into the Shawnee National Forest on Tuesday, the pinkish purple blooms on the redbud trees brightened the still bare tall black-limbed trees all around them. The drive there had been stunning with the redbud at the height of its glory. Inside the forest, there were also a few scattered...

We thought we had the next two weekends all planned out. In fact, I wrote an email to our immediate family last night telling where we would be when.   However, our daughter-in-law Vickie’s grandmother here in our community died last night. Her visitation is tomorrow and her funeral is on Saturday...

Spring breaks have started for our grandchildren.  Samuel like all the kids here in Williamson County has been off school this week.  And so has Geri Ann down in Georgia, which allowed her to go with her mother to see Erin play softball in Boca Raton.  Her sister Tara, husband Bryan, and the two...

A few years back, one of our son Gerry’s cousins pronounced him “ate up with softball.”  No one argued.  What with his own coaching and his three daughters playing on various teams, their family spent much time at the ballpark. Consequently, so did Gerald and I. And also his siblings and their...

Monday Gerald and I went to Carbondale as he had a hearing aide check up, and we thought we could visit some stores to shop. That much we accomplished. We planned next to go on down to Cobden after lunch and go by an orchard for apples and by Bill and Mickey Tweedy’s house for a quick drop-in visit...

  Gerald is back from Georgia and just finished showing me a slide show of the Oconee High School softball team, who are now the state Class AAA champions.  He is busy now making some prints of Geri Ann during the game.   Gerald came through Nashville a little too early this morning to call Leslie...

When I got up at 7 this morning, Gerald and Gerry were already at the breakfast table planning their day--although it was almost midnight when Gerry arrived at Woodsong last night after he drove up from a conference for new coaches in Birmingham. They have spent the day cleaning out dog pens and...

At the end of the day, the red clay of Georgia hung heavy on Geri Ann’s white softball uniform Saturday.  After four games that day, every player in the tournament should have been hot, dirty, and exhausted.  Even those of us who just watched in the blazing sun were eager to get home for a shower...
