North Carolina, Day One, Part Two: Ice Skating

We met PopPop in Greensboro and filled up on some tasty steak while we waited for the ice rink to open. During dinner, we realized that everyone had forgotten their camera at home.  So . . . all we had were our camera phones, which made for some very blurry shots.  Especially because mine is […]

North Carolina, Day One – AKA: Vera Bradley Fest

Our decision to visit home was a sudden one. Knobby’s grandmother was very recently diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer. If you’re a somewhat frequent reader of my blog, you’ve probably read that I’m a believer in “signs”.  I’m always on the lookout for, and amazed when, things so obviously happen for a reason. I […]

Southerner in Cornfields

Whew, I just got home, and I am starving. 3:51 in the afternoon, and I haven’t had lunch yet.  STARVING. Of course, now is that weird in-between time where . . . I don’t want to have full-blown meal (ok, I really DO want that. I do.) b/c I know in a few short hours […]

North Carolina Impromptu, Part Two: Grove Park Inn (and Spa!). The Arrival.

I apologize for the overabundance of photos that follow.

North Carolina Impromptu, Part One: Hospital and ASU

So, on Saturday, Dad had a heart attack while he was out on a job.  A job that was so far out and up on a mountain, that there was no cell phone reception, and it was just him and my mother.  Which lead to a harrowing speedy descent down the side of the mountain […]

Impromptu Vacation

I went on a very unexpected and sudden vacation last week. My aunt called and told me that Dad had had a heart attack and Mom didn’t want to call me b/c there was nothing we could do from 10 hours away but worry.  So, Knobby went into go-mode and we threw our stuff in […]

J'adore le Chickafil

I love Chickafil (known to the rest of the world by it’s proper name, Chick-fil-A). I miss Chickafil.  (The cornfields are bereft.  The days of the stand-alone Chickafil drivethru I remember as a vision of paradise that I never appreciated until I moved away.) When we drive home, I plan our route and rest stops […]
