ginger of oak island: Our First Annual Polar Plunge on Oak Island NC - 01/02/11 01:29 PM
What a hoot...
After we had our traditional New Years Day Dinner at 1:00...we decided to go to the Ocean and Do a Polar Dip in the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean on Oak Island.
WE put on our bathing suits and armed with Blankets and Towels...we headed to the Sea.  After deciding how we were going to do this...we grabbed each others hands..(tight....no backing out) and ran into the water.  The air temperature was about 65 degrees....The water temperature was about 39 degrees.. After the initial shock...we could not feel our legs.. I was really a weird sensation.
But.....the feeling … (6 comments)

ginger of oak island: Great day in Durham.. - 08/15/09 03:18 PM
We had a great day in Durham today with Jimmy's 92 year old mother.  She is still a vibrant person with lots of get up and go.
The first thing that we did was to take her  to the grocery store so that shw could buy the things that she needs for the next week.
Then on to the Radio Shack so that we could get her Internet to work for her.
Back home  and out to Dinner.
Just got home about 20 minutes ago,
We are about ready to call it a day.
Hope you had a great one.

ginger of oak island: Previewing homes after sales meetings. - 08/12/09 08:06 AM
Our company has started previewing houses that the agents in our company have listed over the past week.  WE see anywhere from 5 to 10 houses after the sales meeting and usually end up having lunch at the last house.
This has been an great way to get agents into the houses so that they will have the knowledge to talk intelligently about it when the phone call comes.
Do you still do this in your office?

ginger of oak island: Family from Florida - 08/02/09 02:06 PM
On Friday, we had family from Florida to come and visit us.  What a treat.   On the first day, we put the crab pots into the creek.  Then we put the minnow trap in to see if we could catch some minnows.  With these minnows we would see what we could do to catch some bigger fish.
Then that night,  we had a seafood dinner, with crabs, shrimp and fish.
What a great day.

ginger of oak island: Fig night tonight.. - 07/28/09 11:54 AM
WE are making the preserves right now.  They smell so yummy.  Jimmy went to the neighbors house last night and picked them.
Today, we put the stems out and washed real well.  Now they are cooking slowly at a medium temperature for about 2 hours.  We put in about 14 cups of sugar and chopped up a lemon to give the preserves a bit of twang..
WE will put in steralized jars and label...
Good smelling kitchen right now.

ginger of oak island: Rainy day in Southport (to the tune of Rainy day in Georgia) - 07/09/09 03:56 AM
The Grandchilden are visiting from out of town...
Rain is coming down and we can't get out to go to the beach or to the pool.
Guess today is a Monoply Day or a Taboo Day.
Tonight, we get to put up the pickles that we picked from the garden yesterday.. They will be good in salads this winter.
Hope you are enjoying your grandchildren too.

ginger of oak island: Slow Hummingbird season...thus far - 06/28/09 10:27 AM
This summer has been a very slow season for our hummingbirds.  Usually we have them buzzing all around our back deck area. 
Is anyone else having the same problem with their hummingbirds? 
WE have the  same mixture that is normal for us...so I do not know what the problem is.
If you have any hints or ideas, please let me know.

ginger of oak island: I remember when..... - 06/25/09 02:12 PM
As a young person, our family would watch TV on Saturday and Sunday evenings....Mama would pop ..popcorn and we would sit around and watch the Ed Sullivan Show.  We would see the new performers enter into the entertainment arena. 
I remember seeing Stevie Wonder doing the finger poppin thing and also the Jackson 5.
What talented these folks had.
WE will miss the talent of Michael Jackson.
