We were blessed to visit with our grandchildren and had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day We ate, we laughed, we played a game before they went on their way. Two of our grandchildren are at the University of Florida Three if you count Damiens girlfriend Trista (and we do) and we make a point to visit them in Gainesville whenever we’re passing through. Yesterday we were on our way to Jacksonville to camp at Amelia Island State Park We were not in a big hurry but we wanted to arrive there before dark. The road took us through Gainesville and it doesn’t take a whiz tTo know that Gainesville, Florida Is where the University of Florida is. A perfect chance to see our grandchildren And here again it doesn’t take a whiz To know that Gainesville, Florida is also where a Bojangles is. We had a difficult decision I’m sure you would agree Stop and see our grandchildren Or have a biscuit and sweet tea. Stop and say hi to our grandchildren (at their various stages of growth) Or stop and enjoy some Bojangles We didn’t have time for both… And since we love our grandchildren who are kind and compassionate…and grand… We made that difficult decision…. and we’re sure they’ll understand.
