Time Out...

In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia,


On the trail of the lonesome pine—

In the pale moonshine our hearts entwine,

Where she carved her name and I carved mine;


We are going to take a little time out for ourselves the next few days.

Can you guess where we are going from the above lyrics?

Our plan is to do a little wandering,
stopping by Beckley, West Virgina
where my hubby spent some of his childhood years.
Then we will travel on to Roakoke, Virginia
to see some friends of long ago.


And the Blue Ridge Parkway
runs close to Roakoke.
Weather permitting, we hope to take a mountain ridge drive.

Did you ever see that old Laurel & Hardy movie where they sang this song?
I'm sure we will be humming it as we do some sight seeing.

See you soon!

Have a great trip! I still think you should've gone to the Smokey's with all of us! :) Then you could sing...Smokey Mountain Rain..."

Your pumpkins are amazing!

We helped some Pastor friends move to Beckley about 34 years ago. We're visiting some folks from Roakoke Sunday, but they are visiting here in Indiana.

I hope your trip is safe and you bring back a suitcase full of memories.

Blessings,
Pamela
