The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. -Proverbs 1:7

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost you all you have, get understanding.-Proverbs 4:7

Savannah: Day #3

Can you stand more pictures of this beautiful city?  If you are into architecture, this is the place to be.

The only Gothic style synagogue in the United States.

After hearing and hearing about how the ice cream at Leopold's is ranked #3 in the country, we finally had some.  Meh.  I guess my ice cream palate is not that sophisticated.  It didn't stand out as anything special, to me.  That said, the atmosphere inside is outstanding.  It was like being taken directly into the 50's.

 Of course, around the corner, is a macaroon shop.  Had I known, I would have made them choose.  But, we stumbled upon it directly after getting the ice cream.  You know I bought two.

Some random guy playing his violin in the park.  I just like the picture.

 The Cloyd's are incapable of being near a river without taking the obligatory cruise.  They are all kind of the same.  They take you a piece in one direction and then turn around to take you in the other.  Roundtrip = a mile or two.  All of them seem to run on the same theme of shipping with any differentiation focused on what is being shipped.  Last time, when we were in Illinois, we learned all about the transporting of corn.  Far more than corn gets shipped out of this port.

Savannah: Day #2

1.  History is so interesting and I know so little of it.  I was all "What is he doing here?" Because, I don't know my history.
 2.  Is it possible not to love an iron fish downspout?
 3.  I have a thing for flowers.  Even more so in the middle of winter.

4.  Alicia got her introduction to my favorite store.

 5.  Caught an adjusting of the hair.  I have conceded big hair is perhaps not always intentional in the south.  Hers turned to ringlets all over.  Even mine has body and life in this humidity.  Hmm...
 6.  This church is incredible.

 7.  I'm not Catholic, but there are traditions from various faiths I appreciate.  This is one of them.
8.  My favorite style of gardens.

9.  That moss gives everything personality.

 10.  My people.
 11.  I could probably be forced to live here.  If you twisted my arm.  ;-)
 12.  Looking grown.
 13.  There's already a long list of stuff to see tomorrow.  Because you just can't see it all in one day.

Savannah: Day #1

Cloudy with a chance of did rain. 
I think we saw everything we wanted to see on Tybee Island.  Have to go back to Bonaventure Cemetery due to the rain.
Still trying to figure out my camera.  Sadly, I ended up with too many blurry pictures.  :-(

Grammy's Dog

This is Taz.  There's another one called "Dobie", but Dobie wasn't interested in posing for a picture.

The "Real" Day After...

The day after is supposed to be lazy.  This is it.  Knitting and reading....

 This yarn has been knit four times already.  The first two, I was messing around with some other pattern that I finally decided was not going to work for the level I am at.  The second two was messing around with a new pattern and gauge.  It's still not exactly right, but I'm going with it.

I'm guessing I won't knit an entire sweater and read this whole series by the time work starts back up, but you never know...

Christmas 20.14

I keep thinking about how it was "back in the day".  When I was the ages of my kids, we lived in Germany.  Those were the days you had to drop off your film and wait about a week to get it back.  That process was also expensive.  Then, if you wanted to share the pictures with the grandparents, you had to mail them.  Time delay.  I like this option much better.  :-)
Here you go, Gram.  What you should know is Ryan got me a real camera and I have no idea how to use it.  I also don't know anything about photography.  I'll learn?
