Today I'm joining Watery Wednesday
my hubby has been friends with this guy since they were kids...
they have spent many an hour on the river bottoms...
as kids they practically lived down there...
His wife and I could just imagine ....
seeing them as their 10 and 12 year old selves.....
sitting there talking...


hubby is checking out the hog tracks...
it has rained so it will be the weekend before we can try again...

the guys looking at all the signs for hogs...
there are tracks...wallored  rooted out places every where...

"this is the place we used to ride motorcyles"
"look at those tracks" "we are gonna get a hog"
guy talk....

this photo was taken right around daybreak...
I really enjoy starting or ending the day down there...
peaceful....unless you see hogs...
hubby had the nice idea to paint our kitchen...
and living room today...right before Thanksgiving...
good thing we are having our dinner in the late afternoon...
well at last they are painted...
been wanting it done for quite awhile now...
he woke up this morning and decided to get it done...
nothing like having company coming....
to get some of those Honey do's marked off the list...

I just love the picture of the guys sitting on the bank and the other of them too. So cute! There is no better way to get things done around the house than having company coming. Y'all have a great Thanksgiving:)

Love seeing the photos of your hubby and his friend, just "being." They are very heart-warming to me.

Hope you enjoy preparing your Thanksgiving feast in your freshly-painted kitchen. Sounds wonderful! :)

looking at the photos of the two men flipped me right in to nostalgia land. especially the first one, and I got a mental picture of two boys sitting there. he is blessed to have a friend like that since childhood.

Great shot of the 2 guys together, you're right, you can almost see them as boys a few years ago.
