A New Experience — Drag Racing in NC!

Friends: Linda and I are in the NC mountains for a few days’ vacation. We went to a drag race the other night, primarily so we could watch the fireworks show at the end. The fireworks were put on at 10 pm after about 10 different drag races. As we were leaving, we were asked, “Why are you leaving? Now it’s time for the ‘big boys’ to race?!” Here are two videos I took. Enjoy!

Narcissistic Bird! (Time for a Great Photograph)

My daughter Amy has a great photographer’s eye! She took this picture on the beach at Hilton Head Island a couple of days ago. This white egret was not camera shy. I think he was saying, “Wait! Take one more picture! This is my better side!”

After saving for years, my wife and I now own a three-bedroom, two-bath condo on Hilton Head Island! This is where this picture was taken.

We try to keep our rental fees reasonable, so if you’re wanting to vacation on the beautiful island of Hilton Head, check out our condo on VRBO (our listing number is: 1536128). (And contact us directly to rent less expensively).

What a Surprise! A Free Cruise in Europe! (Part 1)

So, two years ago Linda and I took a river cruise on a 90-passenger ship in Europe with a travel company founded by a Christian couple, Jeff and Gina. We had a great time. Teerming River Cruises is about 1/3 of the cost of Viking Cruises and their website is here.

A week or so ago I got a text from Jeff that said “I have a cabin free for the Dusseldorf cruise.” All Linda and I had to do was get to Germany. Soooo, we will be flying there on August 18, enjoy an eight-day cruise in Germany, spend a few days in Berlin (where we were missionaries in the 1970’s), and then come home. We were able to use our air miles for the flight.

Would you pray for us that we would have a lot of opportunities to share the gospel with the 90 or so on board? Jeff has asked me to conduct the Sunday service, which I will gladly do. I’m going to preach on Jesus’ using Peter’s boat as a floating pulpit (Luke 5).

Would you pray that the Lord will give me insight and clarity as I study that wonderful text? Here’s the passage which I will work on for the next few posts:

Welcome to Our Beach Condo on Hilton Head Island!

Linda and I have saved our money over the years and have finally been able to purchase a 3 bedroom 2 bath condo on Hilton Head Island! We are so grateful to the Lord for leading us to this property — and want to use it for Him!

We’ve spent the last several weeks renovating it — changing out furniture, pictures, rugs. I painted one wall a beautiful blue to make it an accent wall. We’ve bought very nice rocker/recliner chairs for the patio (the condo is on the 2nd floor with an elevator just around the corner).

We’ve purchased this as a rental property — and for family and friends to use. If you are interested, let us know and we will provide a reasonable price for you.

Hilton HeadIsland is a beautiful place to visit with miles of paved bike paths. And our condo is just a 10 minute walk to the beach! The VRBO number is 1536128. The picture you will see there shows a hideous rug we’ve gotten rid of. New pictures coming soon!  Blessings. The Dixons
