Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

A Day In Biloxi

Had some heavy thunderstorms pass through today. We took a ride up by the casinos with Don & Lucy. The beach road was flooded big time.
In between the rain drops we did some back road sight seeing. Check this out.
Joyce and Lucy were trying to figure out how to climb up.
The tree below is called the "Angle Tree". The story goes that 100 years ago a member of the DeMontluzin family kept the tree from being cut when the road was built, said Douglas Niolet.

"I guess she saved it for us," Niolet said, because he and two others found their way to the oak and hung onto it for more than three hours during Hurricane Katrina. The tree died after the storm and the survivors asked to have it carved into the angels that watched over them.
As you can see, the fog rolled in which gave this picture of carved eagles a nice look.
