After relaxing by the pit we went to Bistro 29 in Murphy for dinner.
Friday we went to Blue Ridge, GA where I thought I was going to buy Three Sisters Homemade Fudge. It seems everybody else decided to visit historic Blue Ridge Friday, too. Coffee shops had thirty minute wait lines and the fudge shop was so packed we couldn't get in. We happened to catch a glimpse of the "Polar Express" train as it slowly passed the depot.
This has been a bonus year for us. Carolyn and John were here for Father's Day, Michael flew in for my birthday in November, and Mark and Jen came for the Thanksgiving weekend. When winter is done, we'll try to get to Virginia to see Lauria, Jim, and grandchildren. I'm not sure how many more times I can make long car trips.
