Home again 2

Hello all - glad to be back at "home". It is always
nice to go somewhere to visit - but it is always good to get home again. I guess that is what sorta spoils you with this full time RVing - you get to take your 'home' with you no matter where you travel. That means you always have your own bed with you and your own stuff. That doesn't mean I don't like to go visit other people - but it is still a good thing to come home. Now this is a picture of the four of us (Dale, Cindy, Dan and I) at an apple orchard that we stopped at on our way back home from a restaurant Cindy wanted to take us to. More on that restaurant at the end. We picked up some fresh apples - we bought a half peck of an apple I have never had before called Honey Crisp - they are probably the best apple I have ever eaten. If you ever get a chance to have a Honey Crisp try it - I think you will really enjoy it.

I don't know if you can tell it or not, but at the top of this structure is a goat and down at the bottom is a little boy putting goat feed in a bucket - then he raises the bucket for the goat to eat. It is really pretty funny to see these goats go up the ramp as soon as anyone walks near that bucket. The kids really loved it (not any of our kids, just the kids that were there - thought I would clear that up.)

Now, yesterday we drove about fifty miles to be able to eat at this special restaurant - but before we ate we (Cindy and I) went to the outlet mall for about an hour while the guys (Dale and Dan) went to the Harley shop to look around. Cindy and I went to Nautica and Pottery Barn in an hour - I did pick up a couple of white t-shirts and a pull over sweater at 60 percent off - I didn't buy anything at Pottery Barn. After the guys picked us up we went over to Tony's - to have lunch. Cindy and Dale's mom and dad (which was Dan's sister) used to take the kids to this restaurant when they were little - so they wanted to share the experience with Dan. They are famous for their BLT sandwiches. Cindy and Dale kept telling Dan that the BLT's were enormous - and that they put over a pound of bacon on the sandwich - well, we didn't believe them. Well, guess what - they didn't lie -----------

as these pictures will attest to------------

To say we couldn't believe the size of this sandwich would be an understatement. We also brought enough bacon home with us that Dan and I both had another BLT and still had bacon left over. It was HUGE!!!!! (In case your wondering I had a small Dixie Burrito and I brought half of it home and had it for supper tonight).
After we ate we needed to walk off some of the food we ate - so we went back over to the outlet mall and went to GAP for about 45 minutes (the guys went to a CASE outlet store). I did buy an outfit to wear on the plane to Atlanta - I wanted to be comfortable and wanted something that wouldn't wrinkle. It should work.
Tomorrow I am going to go over to Dale's house and do the laundry - I will be getting ready to pack for my trip to Atlanta (I am really looking forward to seeing Crystal and Kim!) I will only be gone for a few days - I leave on Saturday and I will be back on Wednesday. I haven't decided if I will take my computer with me yet or not. In one way I really don't want to have to take it on the plane with me (I don't plan on checking any luggage) but I also don't want to not blog for four days. I guess I'll figure that our later.
I'll have some other pictures for you tomorrow (there are still some surprises we have up our sleeve) but you'll see at least one of them tomorrow. I'll just leave you in suspense.
Well, that's all I have to report on tonight - I hope you all are having a good week. Okay, you've had a couple of days off, so I hope we gets lots of comments. I'll be looking forward to them.
Talk to you tomorrow!


  1. mom, you can always use my computer to blog if you want. we're looking forward to you being here too. still have a lot to do and figure out before you get here but we should be fine.

    oh, and btw, i think i would have really enjoyed making the goats run up the ramp too.

  2. or mine... either one :)

    can't wait to see you and i love the fact that you bought a new outfit for the plane ride, i can appreciate that :D

    and while that blt looks like a heart attack on a plate, it certainly looks beyond delicious

  3. You didn't say how much the BLT cost. How much are whole hogs going for nowadays? LOL

  4. Okay - the BLT cost $7.95 - not that bad considering how much bacon was on it - BUT it didn't come with any sides - just the BLT (and that was more than enough!)


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
