With everything going on in the world and in the United States, I'm frustrated. Everything is important, but I'm frustrated. Like so many Americans, I keep thinking "what's the point"?
The Republicans let Barack Obama get away with anything he wants to do, whether it is legal or not. Obama talks about the fake scandals and it's a joke, a talking point. Four people dead in Benghazi and as Hillary Clinton said, what does it matter now. Well, it matters. It all matters.
Every single thing done by the Democrats, Obama and the RINOs matters.
There is SO much going on it is impossible to devote the time and effort that each disaster deserves.
Everything seems upside down. Good is bad. Right is wrong. Sin is honored and morals are trampled.
Something must happen. Is there a breaking point in the near future? What will bring it on? Where are we headed?
It was a week packed full of beautiful mountain scenery, curvy roads for the motorcycle, lots of good food. The train ride was a first for me and I truly enjoyed every minute of it. We rode in an adult only train car, no screaming urchins allowed. The food prepared by the cook on the train was delicious!
I highly recommend a vacation to this part of our fantastic nation. Prices are extremely reasonable. People are friendly. Restaurants have some of the finest dining you will find anywhere on earth.
Below are just a few pictures.
The following picture is a screen grab from MoonshinePhoto.com, (thus the watermark) - one of the many professional photographers present and taking pictures at the Tail of the Dragon, 318 sharp curves on 11 miles of road. Not for the faint of heart. Sweet hubby plans to purchase the many great photos and I will post some when we get them.
Sweet hubby and I spent the entire day riding the motorcycle with friends. We visited Green Turble Bay, Grand Rivers, Kentucky where the famous Patti's restaurant and settlement is located. You should visit there one day and have their 2 inch pork chop, yum yum. A great time was had by all.
The pink tractor sits in front of The Pink Tractor antique shop. Don't be fooled by the name, not just lace and pretty things, they had a great selection of hand guns, from old cowboy revolvers to modern automatic pistols.
My birthday and Mother's Day always arrive at the same time each year. I had a wonderful birthday today with my sweet hubby. (Any day I can spend with him is a wonderful day.) Our daughter sent me flowers for the occasion, very sweet of her.
I wish all of you a very special Mother's Day and a blessed Sunday.
Remember those who are no longer with you. Cherish those you still have.
Take every opportunity to tell those you love how important they are to you.
The sweet Grouch and I are back from a great vacation in New Orleans. Below are a few pictures from the trip. In case you have never been to New Orleans, there is more to the city than Mardi Gras and Super Bowls. The architecture of the homes in the different parts of the city is a feast for the eyes, and the camera. A wide range of cultural and national influences.
is world famous for its plethora of unique architectural styles, from
creole cottages to the grand mansions on St. Charles, from the balconies
of the French Quarter to an Egyptian Revival Customs House and a rare example of a Moorish revival church. The city boasts fine examples of almost every architectural style, from the Baroque Cabildo to the modernist skyscrapers of the Central Business District. (Wiki)
We visited several National Parks and old Forts within a few hours driving distance of New Orleans. In spite of all the rain and heavy fog, we had a wonderful time. I think the fog made for some interesting pictures.
The food was fantastic. Fresh seafood every day. I particularly enjoyed the soft shell crab.
We even had a buggy ride around the French Quarter with Emile our tour guide, and Queen, the mule.
Thanks to all the contributors are Right Truth for picking up the slack and writing fine articles while I was away.
Thanks to sweet hubby for planning such a great trip. I'm truly a lucky girl, to have met, married, and spent my life with my soul mate.
The sweet Grouch and I will be married 40 years this coming weekend. Being the sweet hubby that he is, he planned a wonderful vacation for us, celebrating our 40 years together. I briefly mentioned the trip here and posted a few pictures, but hubby has detailed every day of the trip in pictures at the following links. If you
want to see some wonderful parts of the United States, great food, and a couple who still love each other as much as they did when they met 40 years ago, visit the following links:
