1941 - Glenn Miller recorded “Chattanooga Choo Choo”
I live in Chattanooga and was born in 1941.  
Glenn Miller must have written that song for me! lol

Pre-dance photo of Grayce (3rd from right) and her friends!
6th Grade Dance

They grow up too fast, don't they?  My daughter (Grayce and Aryn's Mother) posted this on Facebook this morning......

"Girls just left for school with Aryn did my parents do this! Can't wait for them to park and text we are here!!!"
"they made it"!
CONGRATULATIONS to Aryn Sanders for making the Pentathlon Finals for Tennessee! We look forward to seeing you perform at STATE!!
(State is tomorrow - Thursday)

I can sum up life in 3 words:
(p.s. several asked me to post pictures from my jr. high school annual that I recently received from a friend. I will - next throw back day)


  1. OHHHHHHHHHHHHH I can not wait to see your pictures. What a wonderful message your daughter put on FB. did our parents do it? My parents had eyes in the back of their heads, I'll tell you..that is the truth. Or as Liam puts it, "I know your from another planet, your an alien life form!" (he means that in a loving way)

    Loved, loved the picture you posted. Congrats to your granddaugher. Have a blessed day..any news from the dentist yet??? (or have I missed that???)

    1. Linda, Jim did get a call from his heart dr. saying it was ok for him to have that tooth pulled, so all he has to do now, is call the dentist and set up appt., but has to be off his blood thinner for 3 days. That's next! lol

  2. I do enjoy Glenn Miller music! Chattanooga Choo Choo is one of my fav's. That's a happy memory.
    Speaking of which, the photos of y'alls grandkids are so great! That will be happy memories for you and them. I don't know how my parents felt when I drove. They never said.
    I am so pleased that Jim's doctor finally called and now all that's lacking is the appointment. Poor man must be tired of suffering with that dadgum tooth. Keep us posted as to his progress when convenient. We'll keep praying for a happy outcome.
    I have my school photo all ready for Throw Back Thursday. It will be my first grade picture. (I look so dorkey ... ha ha). Looking forward to seeing yours!
    God bless. ~:)

  3. I love Glen Miller's music too, having grown up with it playing on Mom's record player. That's a great picture of Grayce with her friends. And congratulations to Aryn. They do grow up too fast.
    God bless.....

  4. I love Glenn Miller's music, and think of YOU every time I hear Chattanooga Choo-Choo!! Your grandchildren are all so beautiful and talented. Great kids! I'm happy to read that Jim got the go-ahead for the tooth extraction. Keep us posted, please!

  5. I love your header! I'll think of you whenever I hear the Chattanooga Choo-Choo now!
    Grayce looks beautiful. Congrats to Aryn - she's certainly talented.
