Saturday activity

we even saw Indians AND bears!!!......

one of our favorite things to do since we have moved to Georgia is to drive to the mountains, which is less than an hour for us! in fact we can see the mountain range from where we live and absolutely love it!..well, we haven't done our little drive for quite a while for many reasons, i work a lot of saturdays, PLUS.....the slight inconvenience of the price of gasoline ....but we decided we have been "away" LONG enuf, so planned a day of it! other than the oppressive heat and humidity.....(remember, i pretty much loathe summer)......it was a great day!....and fortunately it was overcast, so that helped a LITTLE.......we drove to Blue Ridge and meandered the streets and shops therein! how fun! in my "make believe" world , that of pretending i have unending amounts of loose cash waiting to be spent on non essentials........i conjured up a bill of well over $2,000......just in 2 darling antique shops alone!.......remember.......i did say PRETEND.........but seriously......i did find a few things that i certainly would have LIKED to purchase.......ALAS........they are still there......sigh........


anyway.........we had a nice day, ending at an apple orchard where we purchased a peach and an apple fried pie and split them so we each had half and shared a SASPARILLA together...yum


we were home just in time to take off and meet "the kids" for dinner at Taco Mac's!


what a full and satisfying weekend!

Glad you got to the "mountains". Have you been to any gospel singin's lately? Our friend in LaGrange wants us to visit badly! Doesn't seem to be enough time or money! Our thoughts are with y'all. I think this week we are almost as hot and humid as you are in the south!
