Goodbye General!

No church on Friday or Saturday but we have been busy any way. I mentioned in the last blog post that I had a man interested in buying the General. I advertised it in Mississippi and Alabama last week and this was the first guy to contact me. He told me he was really interested in seeing it so we set up an appointment for him to look at it Thursday evening.

I met him and his friend in Mobile and he bought it on the spot without one bit of haggling over price. I have owned 26 cars, trucks, vans and RVs in my life and this is the very first one that I sold for more than I paid for it! I guess I am not much of a horse trader! I believe the Lord had a lot to do with this one.

We took the General to his new owner in Foley, Alabama on Friday. We finalized the deal and in a few minutes we were on our way. Good bye, General. Thanks for your service to the Boggs family, may you have a long and useful life in Foley, Alabama.

While in Foley we decided that we might as well stop at Lambert's Cafe, the home of the throwed roll. The meal was great as always and the waitstaff was entertaining as well. We always enjoy Lambert's.

On the way to the BoggsMobile at we stopped in Mobile for a few hours to visit with family....

The Isaacs were in town as part of a Gaither Homecoming event and we had a great time. It is always good to see them and to hear them sing. Wow! They are good!

Kelly Jo visited again with one of the greatest piano players of our time, Gordon Mote. Gordon is a genuinely nice guy and it was good to see him and to hear him play and sing again.

Today I helped some folks park their RVs here at Allentown, washed the bugs off the front of the BoggsMobile and rested some this afternoon. This evening we met Bro. George and Sis. Arlene Brimm and Bro. Joe and Sis. Becky Dikeman and their kids at the Boiling Pot. I know that we were here two nights ago but in our opinion it is good enough for a quick return visit. It was wonderful.

Tomorrow we are supposed to spend the day at Tanner Williams Holiness Church with our friends, Pastor Donnie Williamson and his great folks. We are looking forward to being there for both services. I am sure we will have some pictures to show for all the fun.

God bless you all!



  1. Again...YUMMY.

    I was mentioning to Holly I wish I knew of a GREAT seafood buffet in our area. If any of your millions for blog followers know of a good seafood buffet, within driving range of southwest Ohio, PLEASE LET IT BE KNOWN.

    Have a good week.

  2. Tommy,
    Our first tent revival this year is at Bro. Darius Templeton's in two weeks. It is in less than an hour from the Boiling Pot and several other seafood places. Come on down and I will take you myself!


  3. If it was not for that good ol southern cooking, you may had to eat something that was unhealthy!
