We're Baack!

You have to say the title of this post in the little girl "Poltergeist" voice. I loved that movie.

We trekked to see my parents in the N. Carolina contingency as my dad would say. We stopped the first night in Memphis and went down to Beale street.

Graceland wasn't open yet, but we drove by and took the requisite picture. A didn't want to be in it....

The Civil Rights museum wasn't open, either, but this building was really neat. One whole side is preserved as it was on the day Dr. King was shot. His cars, the hotel 'rooms' and the sign.

The next night we stayed in Gatlinburg. The next morning we planned to hike a trail in the Great Smokey Mountains. We went less than a mile as it was about 20 degrees, but we got some great pictures.

We added three new Hard Rock glasses to our collection: Memphis, Gatlinburg, and Nashville.

Here I am hiding my double chin texting all my peeps Merry Christmas, or Merry Navidad as one of them replied...

The quilts were a great success! Yay!

I got two new watches and a bread machine I am anxious to try out!

And A-Man loved his new coat. He also got purple pants and a new board.

I'm so glad to be in my own bed and drink my own coffee, but I left my pillow in Memphis, so I'm going to have to re-adjust....don'tcha just hate that!? I know, I'm so set in my ways.

We have relatives coming for New Years, so we'll have round two then!

I hope you had a blessed time with friends and family.

Anyway, laughed when you read 'your own coffee'... I haven't heard that one before, but I couldn't agree with you more!

Ahh, what a fun trip, sounds like you had a great time. We, however, only went to St. Augustine for 1 day, it was fun, but not exactly a road trip. Hope you guys have a blessed New Year. Love ya.
