Randomness from the Randumbness

Well, it's been awhile and I've been swamped and I believe I would have to get a ladder to see rock bottom. It really doesn't pay to be away from work and I'm getting ready to do something I haven't done in the eleven years I've been at First woodstock. I'm going on a two week vacation. Now I get four weeks per year and I've always taken one week at a time and have carried over some weeks just because I haven't either had the time or the money to go any where. But I'm going to be gone for two weeks. Now the last time I was gone for one week, I came back and had over 240 emails. Now that takes awhile to read and answer all those. Some, I can just delete but most I have to answer. Did I hear someone ask where I was going? Well, I'm so glad you ask. I'm going to Panama City, Fl. Normally we go to Destin which is about 60-70 miles west of Panama but this year, it's Panama City. I intend to do absolutely nothing unless I just want to. Brenda and I haven't done something like this in many years and we are going to do it. Now Faye is out there trying to raise up some fury but that don't even bother me. I think it would just be terrible ha,ha ha, if I had to just sleep for one solid week and couldn't get out because of weather. I love great sea-food and the Gulf is a great place to get good sea-food. I use to live in South Florida where the very best of sea-food is found, but I will be glad to settle for gulf sea-food. When I come back from Florida, I imagine we will go to E. Tenn. to see family. Beth and Steve and Lisa and Mitch will be so glad to see me coming, no doubt in my mind. Normally, I stay at Beths, because Lisa and Mitch both work and they have strange schedules and it's just easier to stay at Beths and I love aggrevating Steve. He loves his father in law and loves to see me coming.ha I have five grandchildren and normally I get to see four of them. The oldest grandson is at Tenn. Tech, (I think) (maybe) (perhaps) just don't know about that boy. He's very smart as it pertains to books and learning and he's somewhat less smart when it comes to life living. I still love him very much and I believe one day when he has sowed all the oats he can, he will settle down and be something great. The other four I normally get to see. Anna works and goes to E.Tenn. State U. and Zach is a senior in high school. Lake is in second grade and Kaden is like his mom and has it made. Well, this about all I can say at this time since I'm not the random guy.

Well, my daddy IS alive. Who knew? Panama City, huh? At least you arent going to Destin without us. I think Faye will be a thing of the past by the time you get there. It is usually really nice to go to the beach after a storm (with the exception of that junk that washes up) - the weather is usually great. Too bad you arent taking your favorite daughters with you ---it would be a lot more fun!

Have a great trip Eddie. You deserve it and you should get away at least once a year.

Seafood sounds great! Just enjoy doing nothing and praising God that you can do that.

I probably feel left out but it's not as bad as if you said you were going to Hawaii or something like that! Did I mention I'm going to Hawaii this fall??? Aren't you jealous??? Me too! My work is giving away 3 trips for the fall. Two are to Hawaii (or Hiwaya as my grandaddy use to say) and the other is round trip tickets to puerto rico and then 7 day southern carribean cruise from there. That one would be great also! Put me at the top of your prayer list for me to win a trip!!!! I'm a good cause.

I like how mom says "I'm going to Hawaii" even though she hasn't won anything, yet. haha. Always hopeful, momma.

I don't know about Brandon either, but I love him and keep praying for him.

I think Kaden's got it made too. I think he's got the perfect job, wake up, be cute all day, then go to sleep. Ahh, the good old days.

Granddaddy, I'd just like to say that we don't have weird schedules, we just like to sleep past NINE. :-) That's normal.

I love you Granddaddy and I wish you'd take me to Panama City.

Anna, you are most welcomed to come with us. I would count it a blessing to spend a week with you at the beach. We could talk about your favorite subject. "Jesus"
Love you bunches. Granddaddy
