beautiful fall leaves as we traveled along the Natchez Trace.

We arrived in Shreveport around 4:00 and parked the motor home, unhooked the Jeep and went as planned to meet up with Joe, Sherri, Mike, Leslie, Don, and Cheryl.  What a great visit we had, just not long enough, but we will look forward to the next time we can get together.

Don't procrastinate - DO IT NOW!--"Never boast about tomorrow. You don't know what will happen between now and then" (Proverbs 27:1 TEV).

And, remember….This is the day God has made!
