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