Memorial Day Weekend

My parents rented a condo for the weekend down in Gulf Shores with a couple of their friends. We had a great time hanging out on the beach and even catching some sand crabs. Brought back old memories of when we used to take our Cancienne family vacations to Pensacola beach every year!

Post-Tornado Pictures

This morning I met with my friend Greg to visit Lake Tobosofkee. Last Saturday night, strong winds moved through middle GA and tornadoes brought down trees as well as homes. Thankfully I was fine and Greg only ended up with a baseball-sized hole in his roof.

We took a trip up to the Lake this morning to check out the fishing and I caught some pictures on the destruction. Many homes were spared by trees falling away from the house, but some homes didn't do so well. Thankfully, many organizations have stepped up to help rebuild and most of the damage has been cleared away.

In Memoriam - 60 Years Later.. may we never forget nor repeat

Click to View Larger
I got this cartoon and quote in my email and thought it was important to share. I don't want to be on the next tirade list of "silenced" minority.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russia peoples looking the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be "a myth," it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because the Islamo-Facists want to do it again.

This message is intended to reach 40 million people worldwide!
Join us and be a link in the memorial chain and help us distribute it around the world.

Crawfish Festival in Warner Robins, GA

Yesterday, we headed out to the first Crawfish Festival of Warner Robins, GA. (At least that I know of.) It was put on to raise money for a local Methodist Children's Home. The crawfish came in live from MS and there was a bonafide chef from N.O. doing the cooking. They did a great job on the crawfish as well as some gumbo, but unfortunately a rainstorm came in a washed out the crowd. Hopefully they do it again next year. It was good! Aieee!
