Smoky Mountain Bound

We made it to our mountain home, where we'll stay till the 18th, then it's off to Washington, DC and points north. We're plannin' on stayin' in DC for 5-6 days to see the sites, or some of them anyway. After that we'll make our way to Pennsylvania for several reunions and lots 'o' visitin'.

During the drive up here we stopped at Black Mountain State Park to show Ashley what curvy, twistin' mountain roads are like as she's a 'Flat-lander'. On the way up as she movin' to the center seat belt, she asks, "Popa, are you afraid of heights?" Then said you haf'ta be a real good driver on these roads. On the way back down we stopped at the 'Cowee Overlook' and we could see lightin' and hear the thunder in the distance.

We're all glad to be here and will be joined by our daughter Lisa and grandson Christopher soon. Well that's all for now. Hope to see ya down the road as we're,
