Back Home In Delaware
Well folks, we arrived home (thank goodness!) yesterday morning safe and sound. What a week! We're still recovering. Now to get settled in and renew our regular routine I am posting this video that I took last Thursday at the Tipton-Haynes Historic Site that we visited in Johnson City, Tennessee. Bill and I were waiting around to meet my cousin Anne Tipton (who I've never met face to face) at 1 pm. In the meantime we had time to kill so I wandered into one of the activity rooms and videotaped this adorable telling of the story of "The Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Piggies" to a group of second graders who were out on a class field trip. This is what I like about taking a Road Trip, you never know what you're going to run into. That reminds me of Forest Gump and why he liked a box of chocolates "You never know what you're going to get."
Let me just say this, we had a fabulous and very interesting trip. Was it tiring? Absolutely. Are we exhausted? For certain. Hey, it will take us at least a week to unwind and get back in The Rut again. But, no matter how much this trip pushed us to the limit, it was well worth it. Now we have a whole new set of memories. And oh boy do we ever! I will share many of those new memories with you in some of my future blog postings.
