'Twas a busy week here as it involved an out-of-town trip.

Arriving in time for a mid-morning breakfast, this is what greeted us -

After attending the program, we returned to this area for lunch.

Tables were prepared for us for this part of the day.

I am an alumnus of Emory and Henry College, and it is always a pleasure to be back on the campus.  

A more enjoyable stop was made to visit with Muncho Mom, Macho Man, and the Munchkins. :-)

We had expected some snow flurries overnight, but there are none here.  The temperature was 33 degrees early this morning, and the wind kept the frost away, so the peach blossoms are safe for now. We may not be as fortunate tonight.

Remember - a giveaway is underway!  Comment by Tuesday, March 31!  Winner announced on Wednesday, April 1!

Gooseberry Patch is awaiting someone!


  1. I love a good buffet.

    And I really want that autumn cookbook.

  2. It sounds like you had a great time Nellie. I love that rosette on the yellow tablecloth. I love the color combination.

    Good luck to the winner (s).

  3. Nellie, All my college courses I took while I was working, all were related to Industrial Electrical training. So it was classes at a technical college. But I remember my daughters on campus. I loved walking the campus with them. I just wish all kid attending college could know how blessed they are, to receive a higher learning.I think your college is very good about getting together and enjoying that time. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. You have done an amazing job of keeping up with your college activities and friends from those days! I'm sure this was a marvelous event for you to attend, and that visit with the Muncho family was the icing on the cake! :-) I hope your Saturday is moving smoothly, Sister, and that those peach trees will be spared once again. Love you!

  5. It's wonderful to return to a place so dear to you. I'm glad you had a good visit.

  6. And someone else did the cooking and cleaned up the dishes! Big plus+!

  7. a life long Friend of my husband and I went to Emory &Henry. I have great memories of visiting him during our college days. Glad you had a nice trip.
