A weekend at the cabin

My grandson and I ventured off to the North Carolina mountains to spend the weekend with my folks’ (his great grandparents) at their cabin … the row of mailboxes says we’re getting close …

Off the beaten path … we have arrived.

No trip to the cabin is complete without s walk thru the woods …

to the pond …

Rhododendron or mountain laurel in bloom (I can never get them right) …

And day lilies too …

For nearly four hours on Saturday my grandson tracked two lizards trying to catch them … the smile on his face reveals the outcome.

I’m still trying to figure out what kind of lizard this bad boy is (for those concerned, he was in captivity for less than 5 minutes … a catch-and-release program). Since I originally posted this I found out this is an Eastern Fence Lizard.

Besides getting to spend a lot of good times with my grandson and my folks (both in their mid-80’s), we had lots of good eating.  Meat-veggies-dessert restaurants we enjoyed were the Sunset Restaurant in Franklin, NC and the Valley Cafe in Dillard, Ga (the carrot cake at this place was unbelievably good!).

Also my grandson and I spent a lot of time with target practice using BB guns and bow and arrow … we use plastic solo cups instead of tin cans for targets … they work much better with the BB gun … at least it makes us think we’re sharpshooters … LOL!

Also, evenings include watching classic movies.  Friday night we watched a John Wayne western called ‘Chisum’.  Saturday night we watched ‘My Favorite Wife’ with Cary Grant, Irene Dunn and Randolph Scott … hilarious!

Sunday we woke up to a rainy day … but it couldn’t dampen what was a great weekend.

Hope your weekend was great … have a blessed week!

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
