Snake Handlin' in Woo Hoo Holler



     We had planned for months to get together with our friends in Fentress County, TN for July 4th weekend.  Sharon and John's place she dubbed Woo Hoo Holler.  It is very fitting and such a beautiful place.  The best part though is the company with the scenery and remoteness of the place being a close second.  Sometimes a portion of my life is too personal, too important to write about.  This is one of those times.  I think its a combination of things mattering too much to me and being too intimate and intangible for me to adequately express. There are  no words to capture every thing I felt and did or that took place.   I'll post a few of the photos and let that be enough. 

     Suffice it to say that this was a weekend that will live in my heart and mind forever.
I still miss Ed Choate as we all do. No one more than Brenda.  I can still see his smile and hear his laugh.   I know that as much as we miss him he still loves us. We'll see him again in Heaven. For all the fun we are having he is having more fun in Heaven with all those who have gone before in the presence of our Lord.  He was a catalyst for bringing us all together.   I decided a long time ago I was not asking my Father God for enough of his blessings in my life and that I needed to ask for A LOT.  He answered by sending these friends into my life and the life of my family.  The windows of the Blessing Store House burst open wide! . The scripture below tells what happens when you ask for plenty of it!
Thank you Heavenly Father for your blessings & goodness in my life!

Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap . . .  – Luke 6:38


    

Rainbow Cave in Overton County, TN  Kenny and I visited here and the cave is pretty, but dry. No waterfall today. We are planning to come back during a time of heavy rain and see this and some other caves and falls in the area.


Green Pond Arch with Kenny looking out.


Lower entrance to Xanadu Cave. We crawled back in there so far we could see only darkness!



Tiger Lily with butterflies.

Dana & Sharon swimming in Caribbean Blue Water.Can't touch bottom. Have to jump in off the bank. Spring fed water hole. Cold! 65 degrees!


Another great swimming hole with two rope swings! We wore them out!


Kenny made this rig so we could take one vehicle and all the toys! He did a beautiful job! Thanks to Neil for helping him!

    1. Thank you, Daisy. It is very pretty there. The river goes bone dry in places so it is not all pretty. Still worth it to me!
