A traveling day
(Pictures are random travel photos)
Today we head North. We like to follow Spring but this time we may pass her and get to South Carolina before lady Spring makes it.
But no matter, we have stayed here for four weeks. Longer than usual, in one spot. But it was fun, and we knew some of the folks. Our Friends Don and Evelyn were here until a week ago, they are already back on their farm in NC.

Our stop in South Carolina will be in Yemassee. Oh man, I just had a sad thought. Shirl just asked me a few weeks ago did I think we would be close to Deany & Kens place in SC. She was hoping we could meet up for a couple hours. In that short timeframe, Deany has buried Ken. Ken was a friend and he was also a fan of my writing. He was a regular reader of the Shipslog, but never commented. He had read all my books and was reading Mary Ann.
So NOW, I am wishing fair winds and following seas to a friend and a veteran of WWII, A Soldier.
We blog, we talk, make might tell jokes and sometimes do a serious entry never knowing who will read it. Many times I am surprised to hear someone say, “Hey I enjoy the Shipslog.”

I have some strong political views and I know others do also. I do not want to hurt anyone by being nasty politically. I am a middle of the road guy. I guess I learned that from my dad. As a pastor one of his first statements was, “Please do not ask me what my political beliefs are, I will tell you now once and for all, I am what ever you are!”

I won’t go quiet that far, but if you are opposite of me politically, I certainly do not want to hurt you. I like you. I appreciate anyone who takes time to read this stuff.

So we are off, on the road, and doing one of my favorite things, keeping it between the ditches and watching this beautiful country pass by.
I had a plan, drive 200 miles stop in a small town and enjoy it for a couple weeks then move on. We have done that, and it was an amazing adventure.
I can’t get over it, some folk think the 1985’s are OLD!
