From there it is always a drive down by the river and to the ferry landing. (Hickman has a ferry boat that runs over to Dorena, MO)
And a drive by the home I grew up in. After a drive by the old homestead, it was off to my best friends home for dinner and a visit. Greg Black has been a childhood friend and his wife Teresa a best friend since High School. Love these guys and their family. On this visit - I got to see all their kids and grandkids. What a great visit and great dinner that Teresa cooked for us all. (sorry - wish I would have gotten a photo but didn't)
After a good nights sleep, mom, Aiden and I ate breakfast and headed to my sister, Joyce's house a little later for a swim, lunch and visiting. My sister Cindy also stopped by with her son Dusty and daughter Danielle. It is always good to see the family.
But later that night it was down to Reelfoot Lake (in Tennessee) for dinner with some formal classmates. Every time I go back home I try to get together with as many classmates I graduated with as can come but since this was the last holiday weekend of the summer, it ended up being only Betty, Lori and Myself. (My sister Joyce, her hubby Scott and of course my grandson Aiden who slept the entire time all came along)
After crossing both bridges, we hit the home state of Missouri. A stop in Sikeston for shopping helped work up an appetite and gave some time for Chelcy (our son Micah's girlfriend) to get back to her college at Cape and make the drive to Sikeston to meet us for dinner at Lamberts.
