Back Home from Georgia

Our reunion of the the McDuffie and Johnson Family cousins is over.
We are the lofty branches of the McDuffie and Slade family (VeneitaRatcliff) the lofty branch of the McDuffie and Williams Family( Beanie and James) and Beanies husband Larry French, and James Wife, Dianne Eubanks Williams.
The Lofty Branch of the McDuffie and Walker Family, (Jesse Neil, and Ann) Neil's wife Paula, Ann's husband Bob Hancock. Also attending the reunion from Louisiana wasVeneita's daughter and Son-in-law, Paula Ratcliff Bennett and Jay Bennett, also branches from the younger generation.

We had a very enjoyable time while visiting our Walker cousins. We dropped in to visit cousin Sandra and her Husband Scott Callen for a brief time. My Uncle Jesse Walker was visiting her so we got to visit with him as well. It was good to see him it had been 23 years since I had seen him.

That night we had a great barbecue, Ann had the most delicious ribs that she had prepared.
She had invited even younger branches of the tree over for dinner. Those were younger branches of the Walker family, being the daughter of Jesse Neil. They were Tracy and Wm. Michael Lowery, their even younger branches of the tree: Blake, a true vibrant red head like his grandfather when he was young, Jacob, a blonde, and little Caleb, with brown hair.

Saturday we went to "The Cotton Picking Fair" in Gay, Georgia had a real good time. I didn't buy anything. Saturday night we went out and had a fish dinner. we got up early Sunday morning and
loaded up the car and had a very long trip back to Shreveport, a very good 10 hour trip.I had a wonderful time, but glad to be home.

Dear Precious,
So this your debut post, and what a good one I must say. I put myself as a follower of your blog and I want to invite you to do the same for me.

It's funny that your trip last week sounds a lot like mine. I'm suprised we didn't run into each other.

You do sound like you are just PRECIOUS!
Don't forget to visit my blog.

Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! I have met so many sweet friends through blogging. Your post is very good and I look forward to reading them in the future. I know you have a precious daughter, but I didn't know you were named Precious. LOL I hope to come and see you someday. My life has been very hectic lately. Your trip sounded great. I have really gotten addicted to this blogging thing and it's so wonderful because it's free and it's been so uplifting to read others ideas and things about their lives. Just visit blogs that you think sound interesting and then comment on them. Eventually they will come see you and before you know it you will have lots of bloggy friends. Precious, I am saving you as a favorite and I will be back. Glad you are here with us in this new place. It is fun and I really think you will love it.
