It's that time of year

Bok Tower "This Singing Tower" Lake Wales, FL

One of my favorite pictures of Santa. He's next to the tree in the living room at Pinewood Estate.

Now you are all probaby wondering what this has to do with the title. Well most of you know that Hut and I are Santa's "helpers". And right after Thanksgiving our life is strictly lived as our alter egos. Not complaining though. It's just a really busy time of year. This year we have cut back some due to Hut's health issues earlier this year. Next year Mrs. C plans on cutting back more so that we can spend more time with the family before the grandkids grow up and we miss it, lol.

The pictures I've posted above are from an event we did at Bok Tower for the Pinewood Estate. We just recently recieved the pictures so I wanted to share.

Bok Tower is also known as the singing tower because it is a Carillion Tower. It has giant bells in the tower that are played at numerous times of the day during the year.

The Pinewood Estate is a beautiful home that is located on the property with the tower. Every year at Christmas the Estate is decorated. And every year the them is different. This years theme is movies. So I am hoping to get out there again this year and check it out.

I did do a blog last year about the tower and the estate. I will add the link below in case you would like to check it out.

We were very fortunate to be able to have a tour of the tower and go to the top to the bell level. The tower is not open to the public but since I have connections ( a good friend works there) my whole family was able to enjoy the tour.

Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember to thank God for all the blessings in your life.

Computer Issues

Seems like if it's not one thing it's something else.  My home computer has the blue screen of death.  Message says something about Hard Disk.  So I have been without a computer since Friday afternoon.  I think Hubby uploaded a virus because he uploads and opens EVERYTHING!!!  I used to but have learned since I'm sure I uploaded a virus or two back in the day.   I am calling Best Buy today to see if that is something that is covered under our warranty or service policy or whatever it's called.  I can't find the paper work for it, but my sister says she just gives them her phone number and they are able to pull everything up.  So wish me luck.  I am going crazy without my computer.  And my old computer is not hooked up to the internet. :(

New Blog?

I am trying to figure out how to update my blog to the new edition. Can I have some help please? Or I may just start a new blog and hope for the best. I have photos from the HeartWalk, Layla's Birthday and Putt Putt golf that I want to share but do not want to have to deal with the issues I had with the last post. If you read the mini truckin' post you have to page wwwwaaaaayyyyyy down to leave a comment. I could not fix that to save my life. So any help would be greatly appreciated so that I can once again try to be an active member of the blogging world.

Mini Truckin'

For years you guys have followed Wade and his band adventures. Now it's Scott's turn. Scott is really into mini truckin'. Below you will find many types of vehicles, trucks, cars, big trucks, bigger trucks, motorcycles. Even a wagon. These people are very family oriented and come together as a community in times of need. These people are very proud of the way their vehicles look , sound and run. I did not post any pictures of engines or sound systems just awesome paint jobs. I will narrate some other pictures further down the blogs. Enjoy!

The photo below is a frame that someone is going to build into a low rider .

Not only are there low riding cars and trucks but scooters, too. This is a stretched scooter.

The back of Scott's truck. He is petitioning to be a FREAK.

Below are photos of some of the club logos that go to these events.

They even made a low rider wagon.

Blogger Issues

Am I the only one having issues with blogger? I have been trying for two weeks to get a post done about our day with Scott at a mini trucking event. Blogger is giving me a fit with uploading and placing photos in my blog. I am so frustrated because I never really share what we do with Scott and Liz and now blogger just won't let me. And now that I have my camera back I have photos from the heart walk, Layla's birthday and Putt Putt golf that I would love to blog about but I don't want to take months to do it. Any suggestions?
