After goofing off the morning, Jan and I headed out about 1pm to meet up with my cousin’s Anna Jean and Marjorie, and Marjorie’s husband Walter.

We had a great time talking about the past, and gossiping about other family members who weren’t there. That’ll teach ‘em.

Anna Jean, Marjorie, and my mother were first cousins, all about the same age and grew up together. So they always have new stories about my mother.

And  sometimes new photos too.

Mother in the Army

This one was taken in mid-1942 when my mother was an Army nurse stationed at Fort Benning, GA. This was before she was transferred to West Point.

This is another one from that time period.


We spent over four hours together and the time really flew by.

We finally said our goodbyes to everyone and headed out. Jan was getting pretty hungry and thinking about chicken, so we decided to try the nearby Zaxby’s. We had tried one years ago, but neither of us remembered whether we liked it or not. So we took a chance.

And lucked out. Very good Chicken Strips and dipping sauce. Much like Raisin’ Cane’s.

Finishing up, we stopped off at my Aunt Virginia’s to say goodbye, before we headed by to the RV Park. Or at least to my Aunt and Uncle’s right next door.

I wanted to install LibreOffice on my Aunt’s laptop so she won’t have to buy MS Word, and also say our goodbyes here too.

Tomorrow we’ve got a 237 mile run down to the Benchmark RV Park in Meridian, MS, a very nice Passport America park.

    Good morning Guys. You mentioned Libreoffice. I have Apache Open. Is their any benefits having Libreoffice?
