A Visit With Friends

This morning we drove to Jonesborough, TN to see our dear friends, Charlie and Jennifer.  Charlie recently had surgery and was needing a little excitement in his otherwise boring recovery routine.  We felt like we could provide that diversion; plus we really were anxious to see them and catch up on what is happening in their lives.  We had a wonderful visit; however, I’m afraid we may have kept Charlie from his needed rest today.

One of Jennifer’s hobbies is her flower gardens.  Their yard is just gorgeous--certainly a testament to her long hours tending her plants.

We were quite surprised to find them nursing a newborn raccoon.  Apparently, one of the dogs found it and brought it home.  They are feeding it and trying to keep it warm during the day.  Then it goes outside at night in the hopes the mother will find it.  They have a call into the local wildlife rescue association.  I’ll have to admit--it’s cute.

It was great to see these friends again and glad Charlie is recovering nicely.

That’s it for today.  I’m not sure what’s on the agenda for tomorrow.
