There and Back to see the Boy

Chuck and I drove 2 hours and 45 minutes to 
and 2 hours and 45 minutes back
 on Saturday to take Will to lunch
on his 20th birthday. 

 Boring stuff for a blog post but really big news for me and Chuck.  We do NOT get invited to see this was a treat for us. 

Will took us down the alley where he filmed part of his 3 minute silent film.  The first project for his Cinematography course.

Yep.  It's an alley. 

We drove past the Fraternity House...
where I believe the boys do all their studying.
I also believe in the Easter Bunny.

We walked up and down the block and
in and out of antique stores.
Lunch was at a cute restaurant called Shelley's.
  And while I didn't buy any antiques, I did buy something really cute.

For my artist friends....some cute Halloween tags....thought you might enjoy seeing these.

The witch is on the back of the "Trick or Treat".....the Spooky is one-sided. 

It was a great day. 
 Nacogdoches is a very old town
and reminds me a lot of
Cleveland, Mississippi....Chuck's hometown.  Everybody knows everybody
and asks how's their mama.


  1.'re supposed to wait for an invitation? hmmm...

    So in the south, as I recall, you have to say "how's your mom'a'nem?" Right?

  2. Jen....You are always on your toes. Yes, it is more like "how's your mom'a'nem?" ha.

    And with a boy in invitation has been required. While he loves and adores us, he's not sure if he wants to expose his "real life" to his new friends. ha.


  3. Whoa? 20 years? Remember sitting in Robert and Terri's living room about 20 years and 8 months ago? I love that story. Happy birthday to Will, Chuck, and you!!!
