I have had the biggest secret for several months about why we came home from the island two weeks earlier than usual, but have managed to keep my mouth shut (you just don’t know how hard that’s been – one day Ted had to tape my hands behind my back to keep them from writing about what I’m about to write about – just kidding, of course – but it’s been HARD)! I just knew if I started blabbering about it, something would happen, and the whole thing would get cancelled. But it’s definitely going to happen, and it’s happening this weekend!
My sweet Ted and cook show diva Paula Deen graduated from Albany High School together in 1965 (she remembers him as “very shy” – LOL!). Paula (I’ve never met the lady, but see how I am already on a first name basis with her) has invited some of her former classmates to her home in Savannah for a party, and we were lucky enough to be on the invitation list. Saturday night we will be continuing the party at her brother’s seafood restaurant in Savannah (Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House). Now if you happen to never watch the Food Network or read recipe books, and don’t know who the heck Paula Deen is, please click here: http://www.pauladeen.com/index.php/pdnew/paula and be introduced to the most Southern of the Southern Belles, who has turned her home cooking into a multi-million dollar industry.
We leave for Savannah Friday morning, after dropping Bear and Maddie off at the kennel (boy, are THEY going to be ticked)!
Cameras aren’t allowed at Paula’s house on Friday night, but on Saturday we will be able to get plenty of photos of the famous Albanian. Can’t wait to tell you all about it! Can you believe I kept that a secret all summer!
Header: Jill sent this photo this of maintenance workers about to put up the snow fence at the Woods Golf Course (so snowmobiles can’t cut across the course). And, would you believe it – there were snow flurries on the island today!
Personal Note: Thank you for lifting Blake up this week. His interview in Nashville on Wednesday went really well, but they are still talking to three other people also. So – we’re back to waiting. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
