Going home to Oxford Orphanage to be with my hundreds of brothers and sisters.

Well, I said I would let you know about my trip to the orphanage so here I am, at twelve thirty on Wednesday night, just finished my web site with pictures of my home this year.

It was so nice to be with all my hundred of brothers and sisters again this year.  I get so excited about going, I can't sleep for at least two to three nights before getting there.  I know that sounds weird but we all get excited, hoping to see someone we haven't seen in years.  I know it is crazy but we all get that way.

We arrived in Oxford, NC on Thursday night and then on Friday morning, by ten o'clock, we were on campus.  Oh ya'll, you wouldn't believe it unless you are there to see it in person.  The trees are just beginning to turn this year but the sound you hear as you walk down the sidewalk makes you remember growing up and having to pick them up to keep us busy.  I am talking about acrons falling from the tree.  Each year of think of the story of Chicken Little thinking the sky is falling.  I had several to hit me on the head during my walk.  Hey, it is such a beautiful place and I still love the archives building where I can see the things of the past.  Even the bell that used to ring for rising each day, going to the dining hall each meal and then the last bell ringing to let the children know it was time to go inside the cottage.

There are so many things I could say about my home but all you have to do is go to my web site and see the pictures and read the excepts.  I think you will enjoy them as much as I did putting the latest pictures together.  I took over sixty pictures but I couldn't use all of them.  So I had to be choosy and pick certain ones.

By the way, my website is  Let me know what you think of the pictures of my home.

Good reading to all.
