I threw out some old pecans while we were cleaning house in preparation for Christmas decorations. This little guy came by for lunch.

My wife, my sister, and I took a little trip up to Philadelhia over Thanksgiving to visit our 98 year old uncle, Rolland Madara. He is a fine old gentleman with a lot of history. His mind is still sharp, unlike his hearing and eyesight. Uncle Rolland was in the Navy in WWII in many capacities, mostly communications, and saw the world. After retiring from the Navy, he went to work for GE in Philadelphia until retiring, and has since worked at The Franklin Institute. He has been a ham radio operator for many years, and still logs on as W3PWG.
We drove up from Texas and drove by the Great Smokies, The Appalachians, etc. into Amish country, then over to Philly.
I will post some pictures soon.
