Thankful Thursday and a Good Fence

I'm getting back into blogging on a limited basis after several months away. What better way to begin than with a post for Thankful Thursday. Some of you might recognize me from Rubbish by Roan.

I'm not sure what to post, should it be something heavy, humerous, or something I might be enjoying today. I'm assuming any of these, but I will be a bit serious at first. Looking back on 2016, I will say I am thankful to still have DA by my side. He had a heart attack last June. I will never, ever, take him for granted. I am enormously thankful he survived and is doing well. I am also thankful that we were able to get married on November 4th. 2016 was a year filled with both good and bad. Thankfully it ended on a good note.

I am a huge fan of nature, trees in particular. I once identified a road we lived down in the early 70s by recognizing a tree. This is one I saw in Oklahoma taken last weekend.


The one thing I've really missed about blogging is Good Fences. I'm happy to see it has been picked up.

This picture was taken last week in the Collinsville, TX area. Had we waited for our visit until this week, we would have had temperatures in the 70s. Sadly, when we were there, it was freezing cold and snowing.
