Where I stayed
There are few things in this world that satisfy the soul like sharing time with family and friends. Yesterday, I rode as far as Rock Hill, South Carolina and ran into a cloud burst. I decided that I would sit that one out and write you a short blog.
Then, after ridding another 30 minutes, I arrived in Charlotte, North Carolina and drove straight to my sisters home in down town Charlotte. It was just like I had good sense! It had been years since I'd been there, but found it like an old blood hound. Remember, once I find you, you can't get rid of me! :-)
On my way in, I noticed that Charlotte was more beautiful than ever. I was really impressed with how the city looked. Pictures turned out really nice too
My cousin Roy also showed up. Roy was the forth most decorated marine in the Viet Nam war. He's a card. We are all very proud of him. I'll be going to visit him in Shelby. (Hope you're getting all this!)
We spoke of old family times. I had the opportunity to tell the kids some interesting stories about their Grandmothe Ropp and other family characters such as Great Granny Doster. She was married to a circuit mule ridding preacher. Every time Granddaddy Doster came home, they would come up with another baby. (Guess ridding a mule and preaching the Gospel is good for the human well-being) Well, after the last baby, Granny told him to mount his mule and not turn back
We laughed a lot and cried a little. The day was hopelessly wonderful. We're planning another party this weekend. In these days of short relationships, it is so comfortable to see all these people loving and caring for each other. I so love them all. It made me think of your Mom and how much she loves you. You know, love unsaid is as good as dead. So, tell your Mom you love her. She is a neat, sweet, hard-to-beat lady. Appreciate her for me with a little pinch and a big kiss!
My Cameria is acting up and I was really worried that I would have to purchase another to blog the rest of our trip. It just happened that Jeff and Kim had another digital that they freely gave me!!!! What a blessing. It meant so much to me. Thanks Jeff and Kim!!!!
Lynn and I will be playing this week. We'll do some things we always wanted to do. One may be going to a Lilly Pad Park with Kim. That should be fun. Another will be going to the mountains.
I hope your are keeping up what all these people!
Take care, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite!
