Goodbye 2013

In just a few hours we will be saying goodbye to 2013.  2014 is just around the corner.  2013 marched by quickly, with many memorable events.  Here is a retrospective of 2013 with a link to a blog post from each month of the year..

The Steel Wheels
In January we made a trip to Conroe, Texas to attend a concert by The Steel Wheels.

In March we went to the Jonquil Festival at Historic Washington State Park.


In June we celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary.

In July we visited the Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee.

In August my wife discovered that her great great grandmother hand walked across America pulling a handcart.

On September 11 I wrote about a terrible massacre that happened on 9/11 1857 and how it relates to 9/11 2001.

In November we made a trip to Eureka Spring during the peak time for fall colors.

During December we experienced an ice storm that left us and many others without power.

I'm looking forward to 2014.  Where we are going is so much more important than where we have been.  Happy 2014 everyone!
