And, Now the Rest of the Story…, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Yesterday I shared with you my feelings on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. I also mentioned that as a whole 2001 was a turning point…a seminal year for me personally.

Picture of the Day – Solitude at Driftwood Beach

Late in the afternoon on 9/11 Tall & Handsome and I drove over to Jekyll Island (GA). We really wanted to see Driftwood Beach. I was fascinated with the old oak trees that grow close to the beach.
