A FROSTY START TO OUR FLORIDA MORNING
Under clear sunny skies we rolled out of our Bass Pro Shop location in Gainesville Florida about 7:30 this morning. I-75 was already roaring about a quarter mile away but once we cleared the city it quieted right down and more or less stayed that way.
WAS RELIEVED TO SEE I-75 QUIET RIGHT DOWN AFTER LEAVING CENTRAL FLORIDA
North of Valdosta Florida we exited I-75 at a town called Tifton and headed off in a northwesterly direction following highway 82. Just wanted to get off the demolition derby stock car track for awhile and see some relaxing back road scenery for a change. And back roads scenery we did see. I really liked the Georgia and Alabama countryside with it’s forests, green fields, early blooming Spring flowers, quaint little towns and winding roads. Reminded me a lot of our area back home in Huron County.
SO NICE BEING ON QUIET RURAL ROADS WITH VERY LIGHT TRAFFIC AGAIN
CROSSING EUFAULA LAKE ALABAMA
MOTORING THROUGH EUFAULA ALABAMA
A SNOOZY LITTLE DOGGY FACE AS WE MOTOR ALONG THROUGH ALABAMA’S ROLLING HILLS
‘AW COME ON DAD LET ME DRIVE WILL YA HUH’
We’ve only ever bounced off the southern end of Alabama a couple times so figured we’d kinda slide up through the middle and have a look see at an area we had never been before.
A FEW OLD BUILDINGS ALONG THE WAY
Our goal for the day was Montgomery Alabama and with no big rush going on we finally rolled into town around 4. It was Friday afternoon, traffic was heavy, and we kinda got ourselves dis-ka-booberated for awhile trying to figure out just where we were and where it was we really wanted to go. A Cracker Barrel finally appeared out of the confusion north of Montgomery on I-65. We wheeled the Big E in and shut things down for the night. Hauled ourselves into CB and plopped us down on a couple chairs for supper. Half an hour later we were back in the rig and that was it for the day. We’ll head North up I-65 in the morning and see where that takes us.
DUE TO A TEMPORARY TIME ZONE CHANGE WE THANKFULLY GOT TO CRACKER BARREL BEFORE THE LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON CROWD DID
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A couple who'd been married for over 50 years was sitting on the sofa, when the wife said, "Dear, do you remember how you used to sit close to me?" He moved over and sat close to her. "Dear," she continued, "do you remember how you used to hold me tight?" He reached over and held her tight. "And," she went on, "do you remember how you used to hug me and kiss me and nibble on my ear?" With that, her husband got up and started to walk out of the room. "Where are you going?" she asked. "Well," answered the husband, "I have to go get my teeth."
Men are like a pack of Cards:
A "heart" to love them
A "diamond" to marry them
A "club" to smack them and
A "spade" to bury the body...
I got a new pair of gloves today, but they're both 'lefts' Which, on the one hand is great, but on the other it's just not right.
- Q: What did the teddy bear say when it was offered some birthday cake? A: No thanks, I'm stuffed.
