Hello sweet friends. How did you do last week? Ups or downs? Remember life is a process. Things don’t happen overnight and changes take time.
I have great news to share. Six months ago, I had bloodwork done where my A1C came back at the time as 8.3 – not extremely high but too high in my world. Well that is where Journey with Friends started. Little changes at first – cutting back on food, making better choices, walking more. Nothing happened overnight and there were stumbling blocks, ups and downs but still I continued. Well last week I went for my six month check up and had bloodwork done again. Are you ready for this? My A1C came back 5.9! Yay me!! This makes it all worth it in the long run. I’m so thankful for this change.
So I leave you this week my friends with a question. What are you thankful for this week? ❤️
Yep, me and mom have been at it again. I thought I was dying. Really I did. I heard about this mysterious disease on the television on the afternoon news. I can’t get sick. Who would take care of mommy then? So, I did what I do best. I sent her a text. My texts are in grey and mom’s are in blue. You’ll see. I thought this was the end.

Today, September 7th is Labor Day. Labor Day is celebrated every year on the first Monday of September and is a United States federal holiday. Labor Day celebrates the social and economic contributions of workers. This day is often associated with parades, food and the end of summer. Labor Day also marks the beginning of the NFL and college football seasons. I’ve heard that Bacon and his dad live for this time of year here at the Hotel Thompson – YAY!
So this day, enjoy your cookout. Enjoy your family. Celebrate your day and be safe my friends!
Oh dear friends. This is just exactly what this oinker needed to hear upon returning home from camping out in the woods all week at Summer Camp. This is what nightmares are made out of – I’m just saying!
So there we all were this past Sunday, all camped out in the living room of the Hotel Thompson watching the locals news on Fox 5 based out of Atlanta, Georgia. This story comes up about – wait for it – a snake. Shivers to mergatroid. And not just any snake. They were talking about a Gaboon Viper.
See, this lady Ms. Lora Brown was riding down the street in her vehicle in Milledgeville, Georgia when she saw something in the road in front of of her. So she did what any of us would do. Upon passing it, she stuck her camera out of the car window and took a picture. Makes sense right? Ms. Lora Brown said it was because of the unique markings that got her attention. This photograph is the one that was shown on Fox 5 news of what Ms. Brown took. First up, awesome markings and I applaud you Ms. Brown for taking a picture instead of creating a speed bump.
Ms. Brown contacted the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to find out what kind of snake this was. Do you know what she was told? It is a Gaboon Viper that originates out of South Africa and are not known to exist in the wild here in Georgia. They are VERY venomous. What it is doing in Georgia no one knows. DNR can’t confirm or disprove that it is even here. They have been out in the woods looking for it and so far have seen no signs of it. Then again from the looks of this picture it seems that it would be able to blend very easily with the vegetation in the woods.
Thank goodness I saw this AFTER my Summer Camp. If I had seen it before leaving, there would be no way come heaven or hell that I would be camping out in the woods. Shivers – this is a SyFy movie in the making!
