Yesterday was Ozzy's Birthday! He turned 7! You're never too old to chew on a good stick!

Braden is competing in States for the 55 and the 4x200 relay on Saturday! It is being held at Roanoke College...the above picture was taken at Heritage High School last month...

3) Last weekend Nick was flipping through the tv channels and came across a cooking show called Cookin' Cheap was filmed here in Roanoke in the early to mid 80's...oh my gosh, we laughed so hard...this was a great little cooking'll have to see if you can stream it...we found it on PBS...

4) The last few times I've downloaded pics from my camera they just kind of disappear into my computer...I know I saw them download but now I can't find them...have you ever had this happen to you? So frustrating! I do however need to clean out the old archives...soooo many pictures that are just sitting there taking up space...

Going back in time to March of 2011 when we first got Ozzy...ahhhh would you look at my 2 babies! Ashlyn was in 11th grade then and Ozzy only about 6 weeks old!

That's my 5 for the week! I hope you will join in! Post 5 randoms, link back and visit others!! Have a great weekend friends!!

Work In Progress

Spec/Lithia . Botetourt County

This place is up the road from the old truck I showed you yesterday...a man driving by said that this was the old stagecoach road and this house was the inn or hotel back then...someone lives there looks like they are adding on!

Today I am thankful for this great spring-like weather we have been having this week...I don't want it to end...but like all good things, it will...but it will be back! Right now I have the door open listening to the birds...I saw Daffodils blooming yesterday and won't be long till the Redbuds, Dogwoods and Pear Trees bloom!

Unknown General Store

Nace . Botetourt County

I can't find anything on this other than someone else had taken a few pictures and had it labeled as "Abandoned General Store" and that the locals said the floors are collapsing so no one has been in there for years...

These pictures were taken on a very cold day last month!

These were all taken around historic old SW Roanoke on January 19th...
Who's ready for spring? ME!!

There are only 34 days until the first day of spring!

We've had some super awesome warm days...

But tomorrow we go back to winter with 35 degrees and freezing rain...yuck!

This morning as I was taking the boys to school we saw a turtle crossing the road! That made me happy! A sure sign of spring right?!!

That's my 5 this week! I hope you will join in too! Post 5 randoms, link back and visit others! Have a great weekend and be safe!!

Washington Ave SW . Roanoke

Built in 1910 this gorgeous old place is now an attorney's office...

Today I am thankful for more spring like weather and less wintery weather! Woke up to temps starting out at almost 60 and we'll be in the 70's today...spring makes me happy! Linking up with Michelle's Thankful Thursday

Just heartbroken over the school shooting in Floriday :(
