Professional chicken farmers for Tyson Foods in Union City…Now what were you thinking when I mentioned chicken farmers???

We had breakfast with the “farmers” and some other friends last Saturday morning at a great place in South Fulton, TN. called “Pappys”.

Meet “Pappy”…yeah I know…doesn’t look like a Pappy to me either…

IMG_6903

Now here are the ladies that make Pappy’s such a special place…Angie, Dottie, Katie and Lynn. (I know I have their names topsy turvy)

IMG_6896

The entire restaurant was celebrating Mrs. Dottie’s 70th birthday!!!

See her corsage and her beautiful co-workers…how could you not love a restaurant that treats their employees like this???

IMG_6890

We were invaded by someone disguised as a “?????” …not too sure what he was but I laughed because it was such a typical boy thing to do…

IMG_6888

and last but certainly not least is our cute waitress…Thank you for putting up with a bunch of adults that acted like teenagers and enjoyed every minute of it…

I got to meet these beautiful sisters…and they invited me to take their Mom’s photo!!! I’m looking forward to this because their Mom is ninety-one years old and has fourteen children!!!

They told me about celebrating their Mom’s ninetieth birthday…at the Hampton Inn reception center in Union City. The daughters and the Mom rode to the party in a limousine and they were bubbling with those memories. Wasn’t that a wonderful way to celebrate a ninetieth birthday!!!

We had a wonderful time at our breakfast meeting at Pappy’s and look forward to doing it again!!!

I love photography and blogging…

My new passion is photography, and I love posting my photos on my blog. I’ve spent a lot of time and work on my blog and I’m pretty proud of it. It may not be much to many but it’s mine and I love the opportunity to post something that I personally like so that others can see it and comment it on it if they want to. It’s a freedom that isn’t known by everyone on this planet.

More people than I’ve ever dreamed have seen my backyard since I started blogging a few months ago.

IMG_6287

I’ve been amazed at the interest that has been shown about the white squirrels that live in my backyard…

My son, and I are going to a large Southern city to pick up my best friend…

and this lovely lady… Jackie. (She’s taking time off from her guy and her job as a nurse practictioner)

Then we’re flying to the capitol of our nation.

To show our support of what this country means to all of us---we’re going to DC…

100_0127-1 Just couldn’t help myself, one of my photos of a sign from a tea party this summer…

100_0148-1

This is what we believe…and because of our freedoms, I can post these photos of mine …on Thoughtfully Blended Hearts…

IMG_6728

We want to preserve this…

IMG_6698

and most importantly “THIS”…

IMG_6699

We are thankful in every way for those who died for our freedoms!!!!

IMG_6745

We are thankful for heroes like these two who survived.

IMG_6677

This is what we’ll be doing…

100_0111-1

We will be standing up for our country….standing up for you, whoever you are, whatever your beliefs are because…
