Ma Burke and I were out running errands 2 days ago and she wanted me to stop in at Carpet One to look at their kitchen carpet. She picked one out but of course it was out of her price range. So she picked a second one out and they happened to have it in a remnant piece that would fit using one piece in her kitchen and laundry room. Even better they could install it today!! So another thing is checked off her list.

Ma Burke has been wanting to get new carpet for her back porch for a LONG time. She lives on Social Security and a small retirement from John Deere so has to save up a long time to be able to make large purchases. She had saved up for three years so that she could
- refinish her kitchen cupboards
- put on new countertops
- put new carpet in her kitchen and laundry room
- put new carpet on her back porch

As I mentioned in the last post, I flew out to Arkansas the beginning of September. I flew from Baltimore to Branson. The flight was uneventful. I had my camera in my carry on baggage and this was the first time I had ever taken photos while flying.
|It was very cloudy as we took off but gradually cleared. It was fun taking photos.|
|This is Table Rock Lake. My family has spent many a vacation there. It looks different from the air. It is a VERY big lake.|
The Branson Airport is kinda cool. This was the second time I have flown in and out of it. The first time my camera's batteries had died so I took pictures with my cell phone. This time I decided to take photos with my camera in case I didn't fly out of there. Here are a few photos:
|That last photo is the baggage claim area but I wanted to include it because all the chairs were either like those or else there were benches.|
