Fabulous Friday…



  1. Extraordinary, esp. extraordinarily large.
  2. Amazingly good; wonderful.


fabled - mythical - fantastic - fantastical – legendary

My daughter and I used this sunny warm day to make a trip to my old home.  The purpose of the trip was to visit Jim’s grave and put new flowers on it.  I was happily surprised to see that my friend Jo had been keeping flowers on the grave.  She is such a good friend.  We stopped by her trucking company on the way into town and had a visit with her.  Next we stopped at my friend Sherri’s beauty salon for a hug and picture.


Sherri is as pretty as ever.  I have known her since she was a child and she was my beautician until I moved.

Next door to Sherri’s shop is where the theater burned down in 2007.  Now it is a lovely sight with a brand new makeover.


Then I took a couple of pics so you could see my tiny little town that I left for this city of one way streets downtown.

Where you see construction in the second pic is where one of the wealthiest guys in town has purchased the whole block and is doing some building/remodeling.  I remember when he was a kid and used to visit in our house.

Next I stopped by the specialty pharmacy where my friend Sandi works.  Sandi was my next door neighbor for many years.  I think I miss her most of all.

I noticed on the way to and from that there are many wind turbines.  The locals call them wind farms.  It was hard to get a pic from a moving car and


this is the best one I got.

Then we visited Jim’s grave for a few minutes and I said goodbye again

On the way home we stopped at the Country Kettle in Gibson City for lunch.  It was very good.

I hope you all are having a good day.  Stay safe and be happy!!



  1. Oh Twin, I know how much you have been looking forward to this trip and I'm so glad you got to go. You have had a wonderful trip and day with bittersweet thrown in.

    I hope YOU are continuing to have a good day, Twin and that the night is good too. Love you bunches.

  2. Remember when we drove up into a farmer's yard to get a picture of the wind turbines? But that was yesterday and yesterdays gone. Bye now Me
