My Sherry asked me to thank everyone for the sweet concerned comments and prayers. My girl reads all the comments. She also reads the blogs but never comments, she is a lurker, albeit a pretty one.
We came home set up. Took some of the Grands and Stella out to the DAiry Queen. Then stopped by Shirl’s farm. Every year my sister, who never lies, says I will not have a garden next year. BUT when spring comes, she conveniently forgets. We have lived in cotton country all our lives. She never picked cotton. (I did one year). So she has decided to raise cotton. 10-15 plants, along with grape tomatoes, real tomatoes, cantaloupes, watermelons, squash and for the first time, Egg plant.
We brought a full treasure chest home. Oh, she has another trick this year, she is hanging her cantaloupes. Yep, I drove up and there they were, hanging cantaloupes. One thing you can say, they won’t have that earth side, you know, the side to the ground as they grow.
Okay our next adventure is about to start. The boys are ready and we are too. ready for a trip past the med west. I will try to keep you a breast of our trip.
BTW we had a great trip home in from SC. One slow 15-20 minutes because of a wreck. I hate wrecks, I always know someone’s day is ruined, even if there are no injuries. At least one of these cars will be a total. OUCH.
Traffic in my side mirror
I pointed my camera to the right and clicked. I wanted to show the Congaree River, it is down due to drought conditions in NC & SC.
Once past the wreck we switched from I-26 to I-77 which runs right beside Fort Jackson, at Columbia, SC.
South Carolina is a pretty state to drive in but there are a lot of hill in the Columbia area. Not high enough for switch backs, but steep to do straight up and down. However the greenery is nice to enjoy.
For us it was an uneventful trip (except the fuel stop, that is never a lot of fun, Today it was 83 gallons of diesel at $2.40 and 8 gals of gas at $2.20. South Carolina has the best fuel prices on the East Coast, me thinks.
