I'M IN MY OWN LITTLE WORLD, BUT THAT'S OKAY, THEY KNOW ME HERE!

One Last Camellia
I have a beautiful Camellia bush that has grown into a tree outside my backdoor. Each year, the camellias bloom just like clockwork right about Christmas Day. They are a gorgeous color. This, I think, is the last one for the season. I will miss them!
I am a military "brat" who has had the privilege of living in Florida, Delaware, Cape Cod, New York, Texas, California and Mississippi. As a family of 7 (5 children and Mother & Daddy), we traveled by car across the USA at least 7 times stopping in different states and towns to enjoy this wonderful land we live in. I now reside in the town I was born and live in the house my parents owned when I was born and have the benefit of having my Mother & Step-Dad, one brother and one sister living within the same county, and my little brother lives in California so I get to visit him as often as I can. Life is Good! When I retire, I dream I will live in Astoria, Oregon and spend the rest of my days gazing at the Pacific Ocean.
