I think this will be my sixth trip up there. I never get tired of it. We went last year for Darcie's birthday. We rented a colonial dress and bought her a fan and bonnet. She thought she was something. She wanted to do it again this time, but I said, "Just wear your bonnet and you'll be fine." It cost a lot to rent that dress. Maybe I'll make her one before then so she can have the "full experience."
We'll be there for five days and will swing by my parents in East Tennessee for three more. Actually that's a big swing, but if we don't go now we won't go this fall. And I have to go to Tennessee in the fall. It's a tradition. And another reason, it's my birthday; October 27. I'll be 53 years old, and life has never been better. In fact, it's great! You can tell this cooler weather is really affecting me!
More on our trip later.
