Skywatch Friday # 52 and Odds and Ends

Fairfield Sky. June 20, 2009.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  Last week nearly 400 people shared their view of the sky.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

If you don’t like Tennessee weather, wait a while — it will change.  This picture was taken from our front yard last week.  It was a day of clear blue skies, high fluffy white clouds and threatening rain clouds.  And that was just in the afternoon!

Fishing Guy and his wife. July 9, 2009

One of the members of the Skywatch team is Fishing Guy.  Fishing Guy was one of the first bloggers I came across when I moved to Blogger.  Tom (Fishing Guy) lives in Kent, Ohio, which is not far from Cleveland, where i used to teach.

Tom and his wife spent a some time in Nashville earlier this week and stopped by Crossville on their way home.  Betsy and I met them for lunch at the Cracker Barrel in town and had a wonderful time getting to know each other.  It’s so wonderful to be able to meet in person people you’ve gotten to know through the blogsphere.

If you’re in Tennessee please let us know so we can meet you as well.



This young fan of Spongebob Squarepants is my grandson Sean.  Betsy and I are going to North Carolina for the weekend to see him and his father (my son Bob).  They are visiting the mountains and we’re going to meet them for some time together.  Betsy and I will be back Sunday.

    You live in one of my favorite places in the states. I love all the country music and talent that is there. I have been there many times and enjoyed them all. Thank you for sharing part of it with us. Have a safe trip.

  18. Erin Says:

    a lovely capture and enjoyed your post…that was great you got to meet up with fishing guy and his wife. i have met a couple of bloggers over the many years i have been blogging and have to say they’ve become fast friends. enjoy your weekend.

  19. Tina Says:

    Do hope you and Betsy have a great time visiting!! Sounds like a fun trip!!

  20. Michele Says:

    You are so fortunate to meet Tom. He is indeed a special guy, a person I have indeed looked up to for much support during my difficult days with my Epilepsy. He has given me words that help me pull out of despair that I cannot believe was possible by anyone out there and I have indeed cried over the letters he has written me when times were rough. He truly is a great man… I wish to meet him and his family as well one day and to you and Betsy … it would be wonderful! I know it would never probably happen but I’m lucky that we have this relationship through the blog and through our messages we send back and forth… thank you.

  21. Hilda Says:

    Wow, you have amazingly changeable weather!
    How nice that you and Fishing Guy were able to meet each other! I’ve only met three fellow bloggers so far in two different occasions and it was a lot of fun.
    I hope you and Betsy have a wonderful weekend with your family!

  22. Brit' Gal Sarah Says:

    George it’s the same with weather in Okieland, just wait awhile! Very nice piccie and how great you got to meet Tom and his wife.

  23. Indrani Says:

    I hope you had a great time in the weekend with your grandson.
