A Surprise Visit

Thursday night as Dave and I were eating dinner, I got a text on Facebook messenger from a cousin I have not seen since we were only 15 years old! He was in town on business, were we doing anything this weekend, he’d like to see me. Wow! I was so surprised and excited, I immediately told him of course we wanted to see him and had no plans for today-Saturday.

My cousin Rodney Boudwin

For once, I didn’t get so caught up in the moment that I forgot to take a picture. And, to top it all off, he is coming back tomorrow for family dinner! Yea! It was so nice to get to visit with him and get to know him and what a great man he’s become. Not is he a hard worker, and devoted family man, he is a member of B.A.C.A. an organization of bikers that advocate for abused children. Check out the website and see what they are all about, it’s very cool.

I’m excited for tomorrow so my Dad and brother can catch up on his life as well. More to come….

We live in America yall, the greatest place on Earth! We enjoy freedom because our ancestors signed the Declaration of Independence and because the great men and women of the armed forces fought for it and continue to do so! It is my opinion that if someone can’t respect our country and abide by our laws so that we can all get along and enjoy the freedom we have than they are also free, free to GET OUT!!! That is all, now go out, enjoy time with your friends and family, eat your picnic and enjoy the fireworks that are set off to celebrate our freedom and independence!
