Back to the Real World

I felt like I've been in the Twilight Zone for the past week!

Being in a small town really makes you notice people, places and things.  I think the whole town shuts down between 12:00 and 1:00 during the week.  It's very slow paced. 

It's a very beautiful town with lots of plantation style homes, real plantations, beautiful moss-covered oak trees, and very nice people.  I can see why my brother chose to live there.  At one point I saw six cars at a red light in the downtown area.  That, I think, was during the noon hour, a very busy time!

Everything about the trip was wonderful.  We celebrated a couple of birthdays.  I was able to hold and feed my little great nephew.  He's so beautiful.  We ate tons of seafood!  It rained several times while I was there and the humidity was awful.  My hair was curly and I gave up trying to get it straight.  Something I'll have to get used to!  But I think that's a very small price to pay! 

I think I was called "Miss Vicky" about 4,217 times!  If I called somewhere to get information about something, giving my full name wasn't as effective as saying my full name followed by my brother's name and that I was his sister!  LOL.  It's who you know, not what you know!

It really is such a charming area.  I didn't want to leave!!

But poor Penny ...... I pick her up today.  To add insult to injury, she'll get a bath before she comes home!  I'm hoping that she'll be so glad to see me that it won't matter all she's had to endure for the past week!

I'm hoping!

Welcome home, Vicky. I'm so glad you enjoyed your week with your brother and family.

Can't wait to hear more about it. :-)

This place sounds fab, sans the humidity, but hey, in the NW it's always wet! Did you find any homes that were suitable to your needs? I'm picking up my 4 legged kid tonight and I'm sure her nose will also be out of joint!

Glad to hear you had such a good time.

Welcome Home, Miss Vicky! I'm so glad you had this time "back home" with your family, (and, and, and....wink, wink!).
Give Miss Penny some hugs from me. Eve in GA

Waiting to hear all the details! And what's that winking going on in the comment above?

There's a lot to be said for 'Southern small towns'. :D It sounds like you had a ball with your family. :) I bet Miss Penny will be soooo glad to see you----then she'll snub you. LOL She reminds me so very much of my beloved Dewey and Badger. Hugs to you both.

Well, we're glad you are back, Miss Vicky! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I'm sure Penny will forgive you quickly enough... be real glad she isn't a cat - they believe in payback (I talk from experience!)
