It was so nice to glance up and see all the snow on the Great Smoky Mountains!! I guess ya' just had to be there!
Sometimes - it really doesn’t pay to have a camera with you when you’re running around in a vehicle - especially when it’s secured in its own little case.
Ask Dwayne to go back and pull over? Right. He was worried about the dogs. They missed lunch.
Yesterday was just - weird. It was a little fun but - weird. It was absolutely wonderful to get out of the house and go on a road trip!! It was helpful. It was healing.
Okay - so - it's not a road trip for all you - " drive around the corner to the grocery store " city slickers. It is for all us " Country Bumpkins " who never see anything walking on two legs beyond all the ones that sleep under the same roof as you.
So there! It was a road trip! But it was - still - just - weird.
It was Tax Filing Day. We learned the hard way last year. Driving to Maryville is so worth the effort - to do business with the folks you’ve been working with over the past nine years.
For somebody who preaches - “ If it ain’t broken - don’t fix it,” - we sure fell off our chuck wagon! But hey - We're tough. We shake it off - and go back to livin' what we're preachin'! And we don't cry until we're halfway in the middle of the hayfield.
We came home without stopping by the other location of Horn of Plenty - my most favorite place of all - in Maryville. Believe it or not - Dwayne managed to get me headed back to Loudon without stopping at one single Starbucks. Honestly - I was too busy with a XXX Vitamin Water by then! Gosh - I love those Blueberry-Pomegranate gushers! ( And if you test your mouse at their website enough - you'll end up bent over in pain! )
Oh - but we did get to bring one very - very - VERY important item home!
And let us also take a moment to think of the ones with that special spirit of a Fighter - those that God called upon to come on home to be with Him - after He decided that their life had already been a job well done.
