We're Traveling

Hello, Dear Ones! I wanted to show you the first leg of our tiny travels. We leave again tomorow!!

Turning in the long driveway...


Coming up to the guarded entry...


oooo...


almost there...


ta dah! We're here - The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

On The Road Again

Well, I'm so tired of crying, but i'm out
on the road again.
- I'm on the road again.
Well, I'm so tired of crying, but I'm out
on the road again.
- I'm on the road again.
I ain't got no woman
Just to call my special friend.
You know the first time I traveled out
in the rain and snow,
- In the rain and snow.
You know the first time I traveled out
in the rain and snow,
- In the rain and snow.
I didn't have no payroll,
Not even no place to go.
And my dear mother left me when
I was quite young,
- When I was quite young.
And my dear mother left me when
I was quite young,
- When I was quite young.
She said "Lord, have mercy
On my wicked son."
Take a hint from me, mama, please
don't you cry no more,
- Don't you cry no more.
Take a hint from me, mama, please
don't you cry no more,
- Don't you cry no more.
'Cause it's soon one morning
Down the road I'm going.
But I aint going down that
long old lonesome road
All by myself.
But I aint going down that
long old lonesome road
All by myself.
I can't carry you, Baby,
Gonna carry somebody else.
~sung by Canned Heat

  14. Well, you and I could not trade places, Shelia. I hate to travel. Hate to sleep somewhere other than my own bed. I'm compulsive and get very cranky when my schedule is messed with. Your husband is very lucky to have you, as you're obviously so easy and willing to travel and do different things!
