Carterville, Illinois

Carterville, Illinois


When we drove off from my sister’s house, the sun was shining and it was blisteringly hot, as it often is in Southern Illinois from late June to early September.  We were off on our daily visit to Mother.   My sister had decided that she’d mow the lawn since it’d been a few days without rain.  Then, like all best laid plans, in less than 10 minutes the whole situation turned around.  How quickly our lives can change.

a squirrel chitters

About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)
