A quick update on family goings-on:
Thanksgiving was fabulous: All the guys were tied up – Jesse was on a trip, Ben was in Colorado working, Sam was in Atlanta working, so the girls and I had the traditional girl feast of wine, cheese, nuts, fruit! The girls had gone on a 24-hour trip with Jesse to NYC and saw a couple of hours of the Macy’s day parade, and the Addams’ Family play the night before.
There was also a little shopping…
It’s been a cold holiday season, and we even had the Tennessee version of a blizzard last night.
On the school news: daughter Amy is transferring to ETSU in January, so she and I made a trip to Johnson City to find her an apartment (which we did with a HUGE win I will blog about later).
Son Sam, however, is transferring nowhere because HE GRADUATED FROM UT on Saturday!!
So with this expensive diploma, he will spend the winter….being the sleigh master at Beaver Creek resort taking guests to the restaurant on the slope. Living in a camper. In the Home Depot parking lot. Life is good.
Daughter Glenda is in England, where she went the moment exams were over, where she will stay until the last possible second until classes begin. Sam and Amy flew to Colorado today; Sam to work for the season, Amy to ski for a few days.
Jesse is currently online next to me, looking for tickets to the Auburn game in January — if anyone has any leads…
Thanks for reading!

Did I mention that my parents live in Johnson City? I’ll be up there over Christmas weekend. I’ll have to show her the cool places I know of.
– Cafe Lola
– Cootie Brown’s
– The Crazy Cajun
And I know some people around town if she has other questions.

Too cool! We may be moving her in around Christmas! Her new little place is in the tree streets neighborhood on Maple. She knows no one or no place there, so we could use the inside scoop. We went to Acoustic Coffeehouse, a hippie dive a couple of blocks from her. Seems like a great town – we’ll hang if we end up there together yuletime!

I’ll be getting into JC late Thursday, the 23rd.
I actually rented an apartment in the Tree Streets for a while; it’s a good neighborhood.
We are SO going to Cafe Lola if we’re all there that weekend (and they’re open).

What’s Amy studying, incidentally? I know a guy who probably knows some guys in the every department. (My father is a retired physics professor from ETSU.)

She’s an Outdoor Recreation Administration major. She’s trying to go over to England over the break too, so I don’t know when we’re going to get her moved in. How long are you staying?
Cafe Lola – I’m going based on the name alone! Is it near campus?
The retired physics professor thing explains a lot, ya heathen. Although my dad was an aeronautical engineer….AND chairman of the deacons.
Tilt of the axis and all that….

It doesn’t explain as much as you think. My father has a collection of Bibles that would shame most churches.
Not near campus, but still worth the trip.
