Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Nice day in western North Carolina...
Today we traveled westward from Chapel Hill towards Waynesville. It was 70 degrees, and a sunny, glorious day. Diesel prices at Flying J was 3.31. Once we were in the piedmont area, we began seeing the Pisgah mountain range. Lake Lure, where Dirty Dancing was filmed, and Chimney Rock are in this area. Tonight we're parked way up on a bluff at a Wal-mart in Waynesville. We've been to Maggie Valley to check on family property, and to the cemetary in Waynesville to visit Jims' fathers' grave.
Last night the N.C. kids had a movie date so Grammy got to babysit Emmy.She's a good little eater using her pincher grasp on her momma's homemade mac and cheese. She also baptized her Grammy with applesauce when she blew a raspberry. She likes to do that. Next time we visit, Em will be walking and talking....sigh!
We dread going back to Indiana's wintry offerings so we made plans to leave the RV at Raccoon Valley in Tennessee, an Escapee's park. We've been there before, and it's a cool place. (They have bluegrass jams by the locals on Sunday and Thursday nights.)
We'll drive up to Indiana, get our errands done, catch up with Josh, and re-group somewhat before heading back to Tennessee, then on to northern Florida, or somewhere...anything beats shoveling snow, and dealing with winter. Options are open.
