I'm Blue.......

......well, my HAIR is blue.  Today I decided to lift my spirits and got my hair cut and .....

.........hair extensions!   

   

Well call me crazy but I've been in such a funk, guess I decided to go totally funky.  My kid thinks I've gone nutz.  Hubby wanted to know if I was going to buy a Buick......(a "blue hair" car - old folks)!  Imagine the subcontractors faces tomorrow when they come to pick up their checks.  Hey.......somebody's gotta liven up the joint.

I'm going to attempt to upload the mountain pictures.  If I can't "Add Pictures" (AOHell) send magic joe some hate mail for me will ya!

So far so good.  The pictures loaded.  We got to Boone early afternoon on Friday and found the Inn.  It was quaint, old and I guess we'd stay again.  The room was musty so off we went to get some Frebreeze.  It rained Saturday, so we stopped at a Gem mine to "pan" for whatever we could find.  I have a bag full of goodies, citrine, garnet, limestone, tigers eye and something blue...hey BLUE!  Since it was to rain all day I said we'd drive towards Bristol TN.

We got to Mountain City, stopped by a stream to take some pics and snag some rocks.  Had lunch, gassed up and went into a boring little museum.....drove in about 45 miles, then headed back to the home state.  Back about 4pm, dropped Tom off for a nap, then T & I headed to Tweetsie to ride the train and see the Saloon show.  Pick up Mr Man and head for dinner.

Sunday was beautiful.  Grandfather Mountain here we come.  I was so proud of Miss T for not being afraid to go over the bridge and out to the tip of the mountain.  Then we headed South to Linville Falls where she and I hiked up the 1/2 mile to the falls.  Left Tom in the truck...he couldn't make this with his bad knee.  Once we got back it was off to Linville Cavern.  A rock cave.  They turned out the lights.  I thought T would go nuts.  I had wanted to do these things on Saturday, then head out on Sunday maybe to Asheboro Zoo or to Cherokee.  Next time maybe.

Soon I'll get the 35mm film developed and share more!

Nite all!  Enjoy!

What a great trip and great pictures too... When I was a kid, rode a train with cowboys and indians and a train robber show, wonder if it was the same one you visited...
And your blue hair is such fun!

I love your hair!! soooo cool!!! How long are the extensions? I had them once when I was about 19, and I couldn't afford to maintain them, but they did look cool. LOVE the pics! Gosh, I gotta see that area. I've never been to NC or TN!

Have a great weekend!!

Love the hair!  Love the pics.  I kept looking at split rock....duh..I swear it took me 5 minutes to find out why.  You know my spirit animal is an otter..lol  The bear looked like my dog begging...lol  The elusive wild squirrel really freaked me out, I can't believe you got that close...lmao.  Thanks for the smile, the trip looked like a lot of fun. Have a great weekend.

All I have to say is I am impressed with Miss. T, the whole time I was looking at those picks I was thinking nope would not catch me on that bridge or all those rocks that on slip and you are done!!! LOL!!  However very beautiful pictures.  That panning rock thing sounds really neat.  I wish we had stuff close by like that!

As for your hair, it does not look bad, actualy you can barely tell!  You are a hip mom!!

I am really glad that I took time to watch your slideshow.     All of the photos were interesting and your family photos are great.      My left hip is causing me to limp and with 2 knee replacements I am beginning to wonder if my hip is going.    I will limp around my property today and try to get some things done.    When my helper returns I now have my mind sharpened and things are going to get done correctly this time.     I have learned alot about construction this summer and now it may or may not get done by winter but it will be done correctly up till that point.    I am glad that I am using this time inside to visit as many journals as I can and enjoy our communication.     mark
