Bill "Bojangles" Robinson was born in Richmond, Virginia, on May 25, 1878. He got the nickname "Bojangles" from "jangler," meaning contentious, and he invented the phrase "Everything's Copasetic," meaning tip-top. Robinson took a break from performing to serve as a rifleman in World War I. He is well known for his tap dance routines and especially for his performances with Shirley Temple.
E. M. Todd Company, also known as Todd's Ham Building, is a historic factory building. It originally housed the Richmond Brewery, and was later acquired by the E. M. Todd Company a manufacturer of smoked ham and bacon.
John and Nan – every time we drove by this place I thought about you guys.
7-11 and Slurpees – When we lived in Virginia the slurpee was Todd’s favorite drink. Montana does not have any 7-11’s and this is Jim’s way of “sharing” with Todd.
Tom brought home flowers to Patsy and me. Aren’t they beautiful?
This is one really big fan at Buz and Ned’s BBQ. We got a chance to try their ribs. Definitely the best we’ve had.
Guys just have to keep busy.
Patsy and Buddy. Buddy is a rescue and is one of the sweetest pups ever. Of course, our two obnoxious girls wouldn’t give him the time of day.
HELP! Mom put us in prison.
Beautiful Fall colors.
Moon over our house.
Those slurpies always give me brain freeze.ReplyDelete
Amazon has those "Big Ass Fans" all over their warehouse.ReplyDelete
They can be very loud.
Hummmm, that makes three that we know of! Can't believe the dogs are outside! Good for them.ReplyDelete
So good of Jim to share:))ReplyDelete
Jim shares his slurpee like I share my ice cream. :)ReplyDelete
Sometimes a slurpee just does it for me.ReplyDelete
Brain freeze for me too with the slurpee.ReplyDelete
That slurppe picture was just wrong in so many ways! :cDReplyDelete
A friend taught me that slurpees satisfy thirst better than soft drinks because they last longer. That means you have more time to "share" it.ReplyDelete
Slurpees and Big Train Ice Rages give me a brain freeze too...I never learn.ReplyDelete
Looks like you are having a great time in Virginia. I remember those 7-11 Slurpees... Haven't had one in years --but there are no more 7-11's near us anymore...ReplyDelete
Didn't know Bojangles coined the phrase "Everything's Copasetic".ReplyDelete
Isn't it nice to get flowers?
So glad you are back up & running! We are almost back in AZ. We are so sorry that it looks like we will miss you in Mesa! We have to arrange something when you get to AZ!!!ReplyDelete
