Arrived in North Carolina

Trucks of beauty
 1919 Nash

I drove straight thru from Florida to North Carolina. We stopped at the South CArolina welcome center rest area,  ate a tomato sandwich, stretched our legs walking around the parking area. Nice balmy 75 degrees and clear skies. I began to hope the weather forecast for Belmont was a mistake. Then cranked up the diesel and finished the trip.

I unloaded the car of 'stuff' we brought back from the house in Florida.

OH yeah,  and just like that, there was 'Stormy' the black feral cat. I had some feed for her and she let me pet her. she loves to have her head rubbed.  We visited twice  before she faded into the darkness.  I even invited her into the house, but she would have none of that. "That is for sissies!" she seemed to say.   Of course she might have thought, 'if I ever go in, I may never come back out!'

Anyway we had a good visit with our Granddaughter Sherece, now it is time to call it a night.

Going from sunny and warm to rain and chilly is not easy, of course the whole reason for the trip isn't an easy one either. Glad you had a welcoming committee there. and a visit with with your granddaughter too. No matter what there is some good to be found in every day!

Love and hugs,

We have had so much rain here! I do not like to complain about what God is doing but I will complain that I don’t have any rain boots to play in the puddles.

Welcome back Neighbor

Color me curious … and a bit surprised. Before consulting Google, I thought your drive would be much longer. Shows you what I (don't) know about our eastern United States!
Glad to hear Stormy's still in fine form! Wish I could send some of our WARM temps your way!
