OUR CHEROKEE ROSE IS SHOWING OFF















(The two "Upper" wide shots were taken two days apart, Thursday & Saturday mornings and the third was taken Friday April 23.


Badly beaten by Hurricane Ike, frozen by the first real freeze we have had in years, the Cherokee Rose bush is alive and well once again. The blooms have started to open and I would guess that about 10% are showing...it will be a sight if they will all open at once.






Our fence is almost complete, with some gate adjustments to make but we are locked in now and our yard is ours again. Today is eye doctor day for Jake and MD visit for Shari on Friday....all is good here and we are having the time of our lives.

We have decided to head North to Murfreesboro soon even if the Crater of Diamonds RV park is not opened back up since closing in July 2009 for complete restoration. We will stay at Miner's Campground, full hookups just across the road. We have to visit the casino this week to try for our share of $20,000 in "Tax Day Cash" Friday night and Saturday.




Be Safe and Enjoy!

Glad you guys are doing well.

Roses seem to be quite hardy. We have lots of roses up here that come back year after year.

Good luck with tapping into the casino!
