Tupelo Fun

Our church went to the Tupelo Buffalo Park yesterday. It was a full and fun day. We started out with a long ride but when we got there we had a picnic lunch where everyone ate heartily. After then we rode on a tour throughout the park where we saw free roaming buffalo, zebras and camel. When we exited the train, we walked through the "zoo" where you could touch and feed most all of the animals, except for the snakes (Satan was there, really!) My favorite part was the giraffes! It was a real "up close and personal" experience. A baby giraffe was born recently and it was so cute.

When finished, we went on to the Hay Maze. It was simple when you first began, but became more difficult than originally seemed. Everyone participated except for one; ahem, Rebecca, who admittedly cheated ... and this is our pastor's wife??? Hmmmm... It ended at the Pumpkin Patch and we all got one to take home. It was there that the children got to make a scarecrow for the group.

We got on our WLBC bus and proceeded to visit Elvis Presley's homeplace and museum. Shortly afterward, we were headed to McDonald's where we ate supper before coming home. It was a fun, full and finally tiring day but the fellowship was great. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

I'm still not sure it was officially cheating. You could say it was just another way of going through (or around) the maze. Oh well, it was REALLY fun wasn't it?

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
