Our Weekly Update

Our update for this past week is a little late! We did not get home until yesterday and we were so tired that we did not do anything!!

We were back  in SC for Charley’s Dad’s 95th birthday celebration on Saturday and we also spent some time with my Mom. Charley’s brother and his wife put together a very nice celebration and a lot of people in the family contributed food, pictures and help to make it a huge success. Most of the credit goes to Charley’s brother, Bob, and wife, Betty. Great job!! There must have been at least 250 folks there, a combination of family and friends (and Charley’s Dad has a lot of friends).

He joined the Walhalla fire department in 1944 as a volunteer and was hired as the  fire chief in 1961. He retired from this position in 1982. He did a lot of other things in his lifetime that I will not go into here. Suffice it to say that he led a very busy life up to and long after his retirement from the work world.

Last night we got about 1 1/2 inches of snow here in Chapel Hill. Durham only got about 1/2 inch. The fur babies were not impressed.

I took the day off from graduate rehab on Friday but I had a very good 4 days of exercise Monday through Thursday. Was back at it today even though I was still a little worn out from our weekend trip.

Hope you all have a good week. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. So glad to hear from you. Was concerned! So glad you had a good weekend. Now, have a super week of getting better and better.

  2. Sounds like Charley's dad had a great bday celebration. So happy the snow didn't hang around very long! Take care!

  3. 95! What a great way to celebrate a remarkable life. Except for the snow of course. Our furbabies haven't seen snow in forever and would probably disown us if we ever took them near it again.

  4. 95 is quite the milestone!!..a very happy birthday to Charlie's dad!!
