It was COLD. Like, freezing cold. Like in the 20's Friday night. We slept in an old school, in bunk beds. The only heat was a space heater that really didn't put off any heat at all. So I shivered all night long, with no sleep. Saturday night was not quite as cold.
But we got to make a difference and help people, so that makes everything worth it!
My group went to build a wheelchair ramp for the McCoy's. Yes, those McCoy's! As in Hatfield & McCoy. (They are distantly related)
Mr McCoy had been in an accident and lost the use of his ankles. He gets around on his knees! It's just amazing to see that man move. He gets around just as fast as if he were on his feet. He works hard, lifts heavy things, and does not let this stop him AT ALL. Most people in that situation would've just given up. Not this guy! We met his precious wife and daughter too.
|Yes, that's my boy. :)|
|I have to admit, it was SO hard not to take off running down this winding road!! |
It was so beautiful.
After that they had an auction. I've never been to an auction, have only seen it on tv a couple times. That was interesting!! How the heck does the auctioneer talk so fast??
When it was all over, they had raised $1500 to put towards restoring the abandoned school and other projects.
|She told me to pose!|
Next trip- Florida or someplace WARM! :)
What did you do this weekend?
Have you been to an auction?
