I've only been through the Smoky Mountains once, but wasn't able to stop. I would love to experience them! I ancestors from the region with quite a few buried out that way. One day I want to make it out there!

Hope you have a good Tuesday, too!

I don't know, it is still too hot for me and way too uncomfortable outside. I tried to walk the dogs late last night and they started to pant so bad that I took turns carrying them again. People must think I'm crazy, lol. It's not even worth going, I need some cooler temperatures!!
My youngest isn't feeling well. I am going to make a doctor appointment today, not sure whats going on with her. She had an invitation to spend the week at a beach house with one of her girlfriends and the girls family. They left yesterday and she's disappointed that she didn't go. If the doctor says she is well enough and she feels good, I could still send her. I just have to put her on a ferry and they will be there waiting for her. So we'll see what happens.
Anyway, not too much going on for me today. I have a few phone calls to make and I also need to order books for my middle daughters nursing program. I must order them today because she has a summer packet to do and I want her to have a few weeks to pace herself and get the homework done.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
Keeping your daughter in my prayers!

xx

Other than that it was a pretty good evening, saw lots of cool Halloween stuff last night,
Harper is in my thoughts & prayers!

I'm right there with you! I love Sam's. Their snack bar is pretty good, too, with great hot dogs and pizza. Plus, it's cheap, so you can't beat it.

An annual tradition for us is the Taste of Sam's that they do every year the weekend before Thanksgiving. Oh man it kicks off my favorite week of the year!
