Tomorrow is the day!

Off to Lenoir in the morrow. Of course there is the punch-out list.Hang a couple blinds, store the old curtain rods and sort out keys.  We have not been using the A/C in the house, just the attic fan.  Well today we turned on the A/C and it said huh-uh, ain’t working.

 

A good friend, Derrick, came over and checked it out. The Thermostat is bad. He, with some help, jumpered the problem so it is now cooling. I hated the Thermostat anyway, it wasn’t for OLD FOLKS, I had to read it with a big magnifying glass. haha!  He will replace the thermostat tomorrow.

The night before I start thinking of places we love. french quarter in Nawlins, ahhhh beneighs and chickory coffee! I never did figure the strings of garlic.

They are outside looking in at me and Gary. Got to like this mechanic and his choice in girls, Debbie and Terri, Places and folks have made our lives wonderful.

Yeah I think, and think, and think. Then I wonder why do I want to be everywhere, why can’t I just settle down (As my little sister Shirl says!) I honestly think that in your childhood something can set the course of your life. I was 7 or 8 when I heard Frankie Lane sing, “My heart Goes Where the Wild Goose Goes!”

Then there is Lapanto, AR, home of the ‘A painted House’, the movie was filmed here from the book by John Grisham.

I can't imagine you and Sherry giving up the "vagabond life". I think you guys have such great adventures wherever you decide to go! I'm sure it will feel "different" being back on the road come tomorrow, but I bet just like riding a bike, it will all come back to you so very easily! Enjoy!! (Sherry looks great relaxing in the pool!)

safe travels!

Have fun! If it gets too hot down south I know of a BIG LAKE to the north of me that has some nice cool water to dip your toes in. I'll bake you a chocolate cake and we can eat it by the lake:)

I enjoyed taking this trip with you. I've been to the French Quarter in Nawlins' ~ and I've been in a hot tub! But I haven't been to the other places (yet)! Thanks for 'sherry'ing'
and as Mel says, we have a big lake you could dip your toes in. You could come here and Mel & Slim could come this far to visit with us.

Just read yesterdays blog. I cannot believe you
moved those buildings. Remember moving my
building in Charlotte from the middle of the yard to the side. Everything looking good.
Hope you enjoy your vacation.
