Aug 31, 2014 - Fun with Family in Mississippi

It is always fun to spend time with Katherine and Avery! We also had time to stop in northern MS and visit my wonderful Aunt Barbara (my mom's younger sister). Aunt Barbara lives with my cousin Tom and his wife Joni in lovely Nesbit, just south of Memphis, TN. We stay at one of the casino parks when we visit them.

Sep 17, 2013 - Family Time in Two Parts of Mississippi

We usually enjoy a few days in the Nashville, TN area when we are on our way back south, but this trip we needed to finally get back to AL, so we had to skip that and drive from KY to northern MS all in one day. We will have to visit with our good friends Jocelyn and Bob on the next trip that way for sure. Our last two stops on this 129 day trip were visits with family. Aunt Barbara lives with her son, my cousin Tom, in far northern Mississippi, not far from Memphis, TN. We stayed at an RV park at a casino in Robinsonville (near Tunica),...

Sep 18, 2012 - Clinton, MS: Family Days are Great

On Sunday we drove almost 450 miles from Macon to Clinton, MS so we could visit with Chad, Katherine, and Avery. Avery is now 29 months old and every time we see her, she has grown up a little bit more. She is very verbal, imaginative and inquisitive, and it is so much fun to spend time with her. Of course, since she is two, she also can be quite stubborn! I took care of her both Monday and Tuesday to give her local grandmother a break, and found out it is quite tiring to play with a little one all day long, especially since Avery had...

Jul 2, 2012 - Day 11

Springridge RV park in Clinton MS is rated as a 2011 Good Sam Top Rated Park. It is no such thing. Stay away! Lots of swamp and battle sites on the Trace around Jackson. Port Gibson-the city too pretty to burn. Even Sherman spared it after the battle. Also Battle of Raymond. Both fell before Vicksburg culmination. Rocky Springs is a ghost town that had 2600 people before the war. They are still using a church and cemetery from 1830. AAron and Cheryl Willis are from Clinton. Called and se photos to them.

Natchez Trace 2012

Jul 1, 2012 - Day 10

Left 1000 Trails for Tupelo down the trace. Visited many trails, lakes and historical spots. Alabama tornado damage was massive. It went on for at least 7 miles and was over a mile wide! Glad it hit in 2011. Got to campground in Tupelo, and they said they didn't have a spot. Supposedly did not write it down even though I had him repeat it. Decided to go on to Jackson (Clinton) MS. Enjoyed the Trace on the way with the dogs and in the coach.

Apr 7, 2012 - Avery's Second Birthday Party and Easter Visit

Avery turned two years old on April 4, 2012. Katherine and Chad hosted a birthday party at a local Clinton park for family and friends on the Saturday following her actual birthday. Avery enjoyed herself immensely, playing on the playground equipment with other kids and then enjoying her gifts and food. We are very happy we were able to be in MS for the event and also for Easter Day. We stayed at a nearby RV park for a week and a half. Fred took a few days to go up to Clarksdale and attend a Blues Festival and I enjoyed taking care of Avery...

Dec 29, 2011 - Christmas in MS with our children and grandchild

We spent a wonderful week in Clinton, MS with Katherine, Chad, and terrific little 20 month old Avery. We enjoyed their new home that they finished in the late spring, and were so happy that Will was able to join us for Christmas as well this year. He was supposed to get to visit for one evening and four days, but a snowstorm in Colorado cut his visit to only an evening and two full days. We were so glad he was able to come even for such a short visit! Avery understood more about Christmas this year, even though she seemed a little nervous...

Dec 25, 2011 - Christmas in MS with our children and grandchild

We are always happy campers when we get to visit family, and this Christmas was no exception. Will ran into winter problems again this year, so his visit was truncated to some extent once more - next year I think we may go back to celebrating "Thanksmas" in November to avoid the hassles of snow storms in Colorado! Anyway, we had lots of fun... especially watching little Avery enjoying her Christmas! At almost 20 months, she really enjoyed opening her gifts and playing with them!

Oct 5, 2011 - in Clinton, MS for Katherine's surgery

We stayed in MS from mid August to early October to help out after Katherine had major back surgery. It was great that Fred and I could be some help to Chad and Katherine while she recuperated, and of course, we loved watching Avery for the two months we were there! I am including a few photos of Avery during this time period. Katherine went back to work part time at the beginning of November, and now is back full time. She was a real trooper recovering from a big back surgery and Chad provided super support. Avery was just a lot of fun!!

Apr 17, 2011 - Tornado

Our trip from Foley, Al to Jackson, MS was uneventful, just the way we like all of our trips to be. We are staying at Springridge RV Park in Clinton, MS just west of Jackson and right off of I-20, a major interstate through Mississippi for four nights. It is a nice park with all the necessary amenities; there is a large mobile home park around the smaller RV area. The RV area is all blacktopped and has about 40 sites. It is not anywhere that you would want to stay for a whole season but just fine for a few days. We had been doing the usual...
