Absolutely Fabulous, by Beverly Hicks Burch

This is my niece Abbi who has put AbFab back into absolutely fabulous. This little girl make me wish I could live to be 110. Abbi is becoming a delightful little chatterbox. I’m Aunt “Bef”…she could call me Spot and I’d be happy as long as she’d love me and let me delight in her… Continue reading Absolutely Fabulous, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Rocks of Ages, by Beverly Hicks Burch

In Jan. 2009 Tall & Handsome presented me with the wonderful opportunity to strike off one of the items on my bucket list…and, that was to see the Grand Canyon. It was one of the most romantic, memorable and special times of my life. The Grand Canyon itself was spectacular. Seeing it for the first… Continue reading Rocks of Ages, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Navigating the Maze on Driftwood Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

…and this my friends is the “driftwood” on Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island (GA). As you stand and look down the beach you see a solemn graveyard of old Southern live oak trees that gave up the “ghost” long ago to wind, surf and erosion. It’s an interesting maze to navigate as you make you… Continue reading Navigating the Maze on Driftwood Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island and the Lighthouse, by Beverly Hicks Burch

In the foreground is what passes as driftwood on Jekyll island (GA) on appropriately enough Driftwood Beach. The driftwood here is actually the remains of ancient Southern live oaks that have given up the ghost to years of surf, wind and erosion. The leftover remnants of those ancient trees lay on the beach like giant… Continue reading Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island and the Lighthouse, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Happy Birthday, Daddy, by Beverly Hicks Burch

It just so happens that the last few days I have been doing a little research on my East Tennessee and Western North Carolina “roots”. This picture celebrates two really big reasons I have those roots I love so much…my Papaw Hicks and my Daddy. Of course, my Papaw is the proud dad of the… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Daddy, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Got Crabs? by Beverly Hicks Burch

We happened to share a walk on the beach with this little guy over on Jekyll Island (GA) a few months back.  I sure would like to know what we looked like from those two little eyes on top of his head…probably as strange as he looked to us… © 2011 Beverly Hicks Burch All… Continue reading Got Crabs? by Beverly Hicks Burch

As Green As It Gets, by Beverly Hicks Burch

This is about as green as it gets in the Sonoran Desert. If you recall, I wrote the other day about my trip to Arizona with Tall & Handsome back in January 2009. I took this picture from a speeding vehicle (figuratively, of course) as we were driving between Tucson and Scottsdale. The Sonoran is… Continue reading As Green As It Gets, by Beverly Hicks Burch

The Quintessential Southern Shade Tree, by Beverly Hicks Burch

To me, this is the quintessential Southern shade tree. It’s a really old Southern live oak tree growing down at the waterfront in Neptune Park on St. Simons Island (GA). It was from similar trees hundreds of years ago Colonial ancestors harvested wood to build the USS Constitution. The ship was nicknamed Old Ironsides because… Continue reading The Quintessential Southern Shade Tree, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I Married a Serial What?! by Beverly Hicks Burch

I Married a Serial What?! By Beverly Hicks Burch In another life I probably should have been a detective or some sort of forensic specialist. I’m fascinated with crime stories, the CSI franchise (yeah, I know it doesn’t really work like that in real life) and love the Investigation Discovery channel. One of my favorite… Continue reading I Married a Serial What?! by Beverly Hicks Burch
