After a very lovely time spent with my eldest nephew and my mom, I took a side-trip on my way home to visit Thunder. Thunder has always been unfailingly supportive of my blogging endeavors, and I have to say that, if it weren't for him and the mad genii at "Riddled", I don't know if I would have started this blog. In other words, you can partially blame him for my scribbles and screeds.
Besides meeting Thunder in person, I saw the lovely Lake Siri, the storied suet feeder which brings all the birds to the yard, and the long-suffering mountain laurels- I even saw one of the infamous laurel-eating deer on my drive through the beautiful West Virginia countryside.
I just want to thank Thunder for his hospitality, and for the opportunity to check out the deck which all of his readers have come to know and love. Thanks, chum! Next time, I hopefully won't be in such a rush.
