Well, we are back from a week on the road. We started on the road last Thursday, stopping in several antique shops along the way and stayed the first two nights in Pigeon Forge. We did alot of shopping at the outlet malls and went to a show our last night called "Fiddler's Feast". It was a great show and the food was wonderful! Saturday morning we headed into the Appalacian mountains and on to Matthews, N.C. for another part of our journey. We visited Jordan, Danelle and of course, our new granddaughter, Dakota. Jordan and Danelle has settled into a nice apartment and doing a very good job of starting their life together as a family. We took them out to a movie, several dinners and did some shopping. Of course there were a few late card games and dart games enjoyed by everyone. The last leg of our journey was up through Virginia and West Virginia and on into Ohio we went got to spend time with our grandsons, Dalton and Dawson. They are doing just great and I couldn't believe how they've grown, especially Dalton who at twelve is almost as tall as me! David and Ken played golf yesterday and I went shopping! We did too much of that on vacation, but it was fun! During all of our travels we stopped at various antique shops in Tennessee, N.C., West Virgina, Indiana and Illinois. We got in this afternoon after having put close to 2000 miles on the truck. What a trip....to the east coast and back again. In a couple of weeks we leave for Branson for a few days......we're such travelers!
