Hello to all you beautiful family-friends!!!  Wow, have these days just flown by!!!

I was just trying to visit with some of you as I finally got a moment to get better relaxed, and I'm so happy to see everyone so busy!  I will try later to get to some of you I haven't had a chance to visit yet.

I am having a very nice time here, although my back has caused me some discomfort.  We went to World of Coca Cola today and I had could barely keep up with everyone.  It was such a long drive here, and that didn't help, and you just can't get out and stretch enough.  I dread the ride back, and all I keep thinking is how you always seem to get home faster than it takes to get wherever you're going!  Hubby offered to send me airfare but I can't leave my friend to drive back alone.  My friend's mother is such a wonderful lady, she gave me a massage last night -- on her birthday!!!  I was telling her I'd just visited my doctor and he was talking another surgery; however, at my insistence, he's referred me to a neurologist first to see if therapy would benefit me at all.  I certainly hope so!

Wow, I thought I had a family that LOVED family gatherings but this family is awesome!!!  I'm told they gather almost every weekend!!!  Everyone made me feel right at home!  I've eaten so much I'm going to be afraid to step on a scale!!!  My only disappointment was I really wanted to visit the birth home of Martin Luther King while I was here and that didn't happen, so maybe next time!

As much as I miss home, the hubby says the weather is still on the "nippy" side and that it snowed a bit-- can't wait to have the wonderful weather they're having here; just cool enough at night and not too hot during the day.  Today the temps were in the mid-60's.

Well, we should be leaving out tomorrow sometime heading back, so I'll be back soon!

I'll be seeing you!
