Looking Back at 2013–Part 4

Around two years ago I stopped blogging. Living life seemed to get in the way of blogging about it. For a little while, I tried to play catch up and managed to get a half of 2012 blogged but it was lacking the luster of blogging about current events. I hate the idea of having “time gaps” on my blog so I will play catch up with one blog each year, hitting the highlights for 2012 and 2013 rather than blogging each event.

So here is “Looking Back at 2013! The LAST one!
~Part 4~



We helped the in-laws cater a shindig for the Model T club at Castleboykin Park!

”Thanksgivukkah” the rare occasion when Thanksgiving and Hanukkah hit on the same day!

  1. I was just wondering how many non-southerners would know what a shindig was! lol It’s good to look back and reflect. I enjoyed your memories.

    • Haha, well now I had to google it just to make sure I used it “proper like”

      noun: shindig; plural noun: shindigs
      1. a large, lively party, esp. one celebrating something.

      It wasn’t that lively, so maybe I should have said, “gathering” instead 😉 but it was still neat to see all the classic cars and meet a great bunch of folks! Yep, good memories!
