Joy, Kate and Phyllis
I have been on a Stay Vacation for several days and yesterday was my first day back at work. My granddaughter Kate came to Knoxville to spend time with me. We had a great week, just hanging out, shopping, eating at our favorite restaurants, going to Dollywood and touring Burns Mailing & Printing to show her how the printing and mailing process works. On Sunday, Joy came to pick her up but not before we had a day in the mountains at our favorite swimming hole. Our family has been going there since I first met Ken in 1960. That is where my daughters learned to swim and we have lots of good memories there. As I sat by the river, images of family playing in the water and picnicking with family came to mind. Joy and Kate had tubes and they rode the tubes for hours. We did this a couple of years back but we have decided that this will be a yearly thing and that we want to make more memories that Kate can look back on and cherish.
