Sweet Home AlaBAMa

After two days of driving, we are set up in our second home - Summerdale, Alabama! It felt so good to pull in to "our" site and get set up.

Yesterday, we left NC about 8:45am and headed southwest. We'd had a fantastic visit with Dan & Deb and it was time to move on. About 6:30pm we pulled into Cracker Barrel in Conyers, GA to spend the night. Unfortunately, we couldn't add this CB to Randy's list 'cause we'd been there before. :)

One thing about spending the night in a parking lot - we go to sleep earlier than any other time! By 10pm we were both sound asleep. About 7am we were up and getting ready to go. I can't tell you the last time I slept nine hours!

Since it was too early to eat a big breakfast, we waved good-bye to Cracker Barrel and headed down the road. About 9am we stopped for breakfast at . . . wait for it . . . Cracker Barrel! Aren't you surprised?!?!! :) This one was a new one, so it got put on the list. This was our 75th CB since we've been full-timing. Gosh, just a little more than 500 to go! :) HA!

While having breakfast, our son, Kevin, called. He is now in Iraq awaiting further orders. It was great to hear his voice and know he is safe. He tries to call about once a week which is wonderful.

We continued down the road and pulled into our site about 3:30 this afternoon. Of course, it felt like 4:30 since we're used to Eastern time. But, Central is nice, we go to bed earlier and our TV shows are on earlier, too!

Tomorrow is bank and grocery day since it's the first of the month. Then, we'll be getting in to the routine of our life here in LA (Lower Alabama).

If you find yourself in the area, please stop by. We love company!

Until the next time . . .

  1. Glad you made a safe trip to your second home. We look forward to seeing you guys which will probably be in January.

    I know you are always excited to hear from Kevin and may God bless him and keep him safe.

    Hugs to you both.
