We stopped at the grocery store for a minute. They have HUGE pumpkins in their display for $99. each! Can you imagine paying $99. for a pumpkin? I should have put a regular size pumpkin next to this so you could see the size difference. Nice display, but I think they will still have these giant ones after Autumn has come and gone.

This is the Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge that we take out of Charleston to go back to Casey's. It is an eight-lane cable-stayed bridge over the Cooper River, connecting downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. It has two diamond-shaped towers that allows clearance for modern ocean freighters to access the port of Charleston. The bridge is the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere. I love crossing over this bridge ~ the views are great!
We stopped to pick up dinner on the way home.
Casey, Amanda, and I had a wonderful breakfast buffet at STARS in downtown Charleston ~ walked quite a bit after and then my legs just couldn't walk anymore. We then went to Tommy Condon's where I had a wonderful Wild Berry Frozen Daiquiri! The three young men in the photo (Three Pegs Trio) were playing outside the restaurant and they were very good.

I am getting in this plane tomorrow morning!! Casey is picking me up and taking me to Charleston for a visit. I'm a little nervous about being up there for 2 hours, but it sure beats 7-8 hours on the road.
Mr. Magic is once again staying home with Jake. I will miss them both, but I look forward to time spent with Casey and Amanda.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Terry !!
This has been a busy year for you ~ selling the business and retiring! You now have time to relax and do some things that have been lingering in the back of your mind. I hope this birthday will be the beginning of something new that will bring you happiness for many years to come. xoxo

Casey James Fish, on the day you were born, I knew you would grow up to be an amazing man. You certainly proved me right. I couldn't feel more pride, your life has brought me great joy, and I could not imagine a deeper love.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my son!!! I love you always!

I have worked hard searching for treasures to put in my consignment booths for almost 7 years. Every week I shop, clean, paint, and haul. I've enjoyed it a lot, but there have been days when I wanted to close up shop. But, each month my check tells me to keep going.
Today was one of those days that my hard work paid off. At an estate sale, I fell in love with and purchased for my home, this lovely bronze sculpture. She grabbed my heart the minute I saw her and she will bring me happiness, hopefully, for many years to come. She's a beauty!
