Happy Easter

We Easter'ed with our friends Wes and Deidra this year. We left out about 8:30 a.m. Saturday with the intention to have lunch with them.
We soon discovered that it was spring break for college kids in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
The Interstate was literally bumper-to-bumper from just South of Birmingham to Montgomery. We've made that trip many times and it normally takes about 1 3/4 hours. It took us over three yesterday.
There weren't any wrecks, just the road wasn't designed for that many kids, in that big a hurry to scurry through the state.
As you might imagine, we missed lunch and arrived fashionably late. It's always delightful getting with them.
This morning, we got dressed to go to church with them in Elba. It was a beautiful service and afterwards we had lunch with Wes' family and some of his friends.
Jilda and I fretted about the traffic we both felt was awaiting us on the Interstate, but as it turns out, we breezed home with no problems.
It's good to be home.
I feel like my posts have been "light-weight" the last few days. I know I can do better, but not tonight.
The rain is rattling the roof, and I can hear our bed calling.
Y'all have a remarkable week. 


  1. Rain on the roof would lull me off to sleep, right about now.... Happy Easter to you too;-)

  2. Lightweight is good, nothing wrong with that! LOL!! Glad you had a great Easter!! Take care

  3. Sounds like a great weekend to me- even if you did have to fight traffic. Our kids/grands were part of that traffic tie up I am afraid!
    Hope you have a wonderful week- xo Diana

  4. Being with friends and celebrating that time together--a wonderful day.

  5. Too bad about the traffic but it seems you made the best of things and enjoyed the weekend anyway! Of course there would be no trouble getting home, everyone is in Florida by now!

  6. Oh I hate traffic also but once you get to where you are going you forget about it quickly and then enjoy
    Glad the trip home was good.
    Have a good rest,.:)

  7. Thanks all. It was a good weekend. I hope you all had a great holiday.
