Here I am, late as usual, but hello Dakota. I live in NW Georgia. As southerners say, "Just a spit and jump away from you" I have been waiting 10 yrs for my husband to take me to Gatlinburg. I could go without him but that wouldn't be as much fun. Illness has kept him from going so I don't mind waiting on him!!
I am still reading all the posts here so haven't seen any of yours. Now time seems to have opened up for me so hope to see some of yours starting next week and to start reading all the others. Some of the names here are familar to me. I am mostly a reader and study person but I do get mouthy on occasion. .
Quasar, Castlerock was my first "fender bender" Waterloo. That mall right off the interstate. Woe to women you stop to shop on the way back to Truth or Consequences, NM. At that time they didn't have a red/yellow/green light coming out of the shopping center and when I looked no one was coming so I stuck my car out and just as I was almost to the other side I got whammed. Only a couple of block off the interstate and the exit was 40 mph and poor guy said he should have slowed down, but didn't see me until he had exited and made the turn. sigh. The police told me later they had plans to put install a light as they had had numerous wrecks there. The Lord surely watches out for us in this world. No one hurt and I got to see that pretty little city the day it took to fix my car.
