Apr 23, 2015 - Mike at Nash Hospital, Rocky Mount NC

After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, Reggi and I decided to have it removed by Dr. Mathes using the DiVinci robot. The surgery was totally successful - the complete prostate was removed and it contained all the cancer, my PSA is now 0.00. However, during the operation I had a heart attack; fortunately, Jeff Levy the Anesthesiology nurse, who as an EMT was trained to recognize a heart attack on an EKG. He saved my life, when he saw I was having a heart attack, by immediately putting Nitro Paste on my chest. Dr. Mathes told me...

There is a corner house that is only about 2 miles from where we use to live that is the most beautiful place, it is situated on a corner lot with 10s of Azaleas and Dogwoods, just love it during the spring.

Nov 8, 2014 - My Sister's House

going through our storage unit was a very difficult time for us, especially Reggi. We had a lot of things that we have gotten over the past 34 years and some of the things were from our parents. Reggi loves her hats, shoes and handbags. She made a very big decision to let go of them. She donated them to My Sister's House. A shelter for abused and battered women and children. they have a store "Second Season" were they sell womens cloths and accessories. Not only did Reggi give them a lot of her cloths, and most of her hats, handbags and...

Aug 6, 2012 - Rain, Rain, Go Away!!

Yesterday (Sunday - 8/5) we took a trip to Camping World outside of Savannah, GA. Our trip was for purposes of getting a new air brake cable for the towing system ... only to find the Service/Parts Dept. closed ... but a helpful salesperson showed us how to put the old cable back together, so hopefully all will be ok!?! We were in and out of showers during the trip, so decided to NOT go visit Wormsloe Historic Site. Instead, Linda took another wander around the remains of "The Rattlesnake" (in the rain), a ship that was sunk off the shores...

Nov 27, 2010 - Rocky Mount, NC

November 27, 2010 - A slow drive to Rocky Mount, NC through the great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina and the Cherokee Indian Reservation. After leaving the reservation, we chose to travel a non-Interstate Highway which added to the slow traveling but provided much less traffic. The Smokies provided many picturesque views. The only wildlife we saw on this leg was many dead Deer and one dead Fox. We did capture on film a three-headed dog in a pickup truck. The last three pictures were my pictures and after this leg I was...

Mar 11, 2010 - Outer Banks to Rocky Mount

This morning we rose to a cloudy but comfortable day. After breakfast the first order of business, per Blayde’s demanding little stomp, was a walk on the beach. It was fun to walk on this secluded beach once again (seeing what new goodies the high tide from last night had left behind) with Blayde. While walking our little Blayde made a discovery of an empty Welk egg case (commonly called a Mermaid’s Necklace). He was bound and determined to keep it. I had to pry it out of his mouth and then return it to the beach. At the time I didn’t know...

Jul 11, 2009 - seeing the kids!

Pam wrote: On the road by 7:00 to make up for lost time. Drove for 8 ½ hours. There was lots of construction in Georgia, but that wasn’t half as bad as the roads in South Carolina. They were so torn up it was like a patchwork quilt! No construction going on here, but maybe there should have been! We pulled up at Victoria & Ron’s house in Rocky Mount, NC at 3:30 PM and the kids rushed out to greet us! Only a quick hug though . . . they seemed more excited to see Saint than us! Russell’s parents and sister, Katherine, joined us for a North...

Jun 22, 2009 - OTRA - NC - Wilson

b>6/22/09 Didn't get any fishing in last night; our worms were "flat". Oh well. Up and packed this morning and left the campground at 11:40. 11:45 a.m. - WELCOME TO NORTH CAROLINA Well, I-95 sure is much nicer in North Carolina than it is in South Carolina. When we stopped today, not a single thing in the house had moved! That’s the sign of an easy drive. Another neat thing about NC – You’ll be driving along and all of a sudden you’ll come across a huge patch of yellow or orange or white lilies and other flowers planted along the on/off...

Nov 14, 2007 - Heading to Florida

Wednesday, Nov 14, '07 We were in our usual "All ahead slow" mode this morning and did not get away until 11 AM Drew searched the attic again unsuccessfully for all my Snow Babies. I can only hope that Matt eventually finds them. Between all the things we are taking to Heather in FL and to Tina in AZ and all the stuff we still have to sort through and find a place for, our RV is loaded. So Drew packed up a couple of large boxes, wrapped them in a tarp and lashed them to the top of the tool box in the truck. Between Fredricksburg and...
