We were invited to spend the day at a friend's today and at church tomorrow there will be a lunch and Easter egg hunt in the cematary again but we decided to not holiday big. We took one of our rides this morning and was back home by noon. There has been a road on our way to church that has been calling my name. Its in the country but paved. The kind me and my truck likes. There is a housing addition down this road and I was expecting it to be old mobile homes and run down houses but was I surprised? It is a very large housing addition and the homes are all new, big, and pretty. Its is off the farm to market road from where I was born to the town where I was raised. When I was young we traveled this road every Sunday to Grandma's house. It was the most sandy, bumpy, washboard road you can imagine and every Sunday I got car sick riding in the back seat. Finally my mama let me ride up front with she and daddy so that helped. A lot of family would be at grandma's and everyone would take food. Lots of visiting and eating and then the ride home on that terrible road. Now its a smooth road with a shoulder on either side and a housing addition with nice houses. I told John next they will build a convience store on the corner etc. and first thing we know the woods will be all gone and it will be town instead of country. Progress can be great but it can be sad too.
