I sure wish there was a store that sold extra hours in the day, for I would be their biggest customer! Cannot believe that it is almost mid-November already. Phew!
Art and I took a few days off to take a trip to "Mayberry RFD" otherwise known at Mt. Airy, NC, about a three hour drive from home. What a delightful time we had, considering it rained for two days. It least it was warm. We went through the whole town, took pictures and talked to the locals. I even found an old-fashioned soda fountain where I was able to have a chocolate ice cream soda...something North Carolinians don't really know of, but those from New England sure do. I was in "hog heaven" and enjoyed every drop. Art loved Aunt Bee's Restaurant and had a heaping plate of barbecue, which is something all North Carolinians love.
Below is a photo of Art goofing off in Floyd's Barber Shop as well as one of me "talking" to Sheriff Andy in the squad car!
We were planning to check out the granite quarry and climb Pilot Mountain while we were there, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, so we ended up leaving before we planned to. Went to Hickory, but it was too rainy to do anything there but shop and there was nothing we needed.
Deciding to head home a day early, we stopped outside Winston Salem to visit Art's Aunt Anna who is in a nursing home there. We hadn't seen her in more than ten years, so it was nice to be able to have a visit with her if only for a few hours.
Now for my big news....
