Here are three more shots of our trip to France -- see copy below.

Saturday, October 04, 2008

Greetings. We are currently camped near Jacksonville, NC and will be leaving soon for Charleston, SC. Jann will hold down the fort while I meet up with DOC, Kevin, David and Larry for our annual Las Vegas get together. Here are some photos of our fabulous trip to France with Steve and Pam. In addition to France, we spent an afternoon in Spain and a full day in Heidelberg. Here are some random shots of the trip. It was all so beautiful, I has a tough time choosing which prints to attach. Note the name on the Cafe directly behind me. Also, we had lunch in a small village right next to the path of the Tour De France. The other shot is from our room over looking Heidelberg. Finally, a shot of the beach in Spain. I'll add more in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned.

OK -- so we've been busy, what with traveling across Europe with Steve and Pamella, and relocating to Virginia, we just haven't had much time for blogging. So here's a quickie while I get the European pictures in order. This is one of Jann with some guy from a pick-up band we enjoyed while in Arkansas.

Hello all -- here are some shots of our recent travel. Pix of an under ground cavern, Jann at the river, me and my second best gal doing what we do best -- relaxing -- and a picture of our home anchored in Chapel Hill NC. This is by far the most beautiful site we have ever camped at. We are now off to Europe to hook up with our Pals Steve and Pam to tour Southern France and a bit of Germany. Stay tuned for pix of the vacation.

There are several great reasons why we are considering making Kentucky our permanent address -- good food, good weather (so far) and great Bourbon. Here is a shot of the state capital, one of me and one of my favorite Food Channel stars and finally one of me and my favorite bird. On to Nashville for some Grand Ole Opry fun. Stay tuned.

OK -- we finally settled in one spot long enough to order our 2006 Christmas present from Dana and Kevin -- New England Lobsters shipped directly to our motor coach. Jann was extremely excited as she offers a toast and reprise's her Broadway role in "Horton Hears a Who." Thanks for a great dinner, Kevin and Dana.

Well the high cost of Diesel ($4.50 and going up) has caused us to slow our pace a bit. We are staying in Horn Lake MS. for a month. What does one do in Horn Lake, MS, you ask? Well fortunately it is a short 20 minute drive from Memphis, TN. What does one do in Memphis you ask? There is one main attraction -- see photo. Once we discover more to do in Horn Lake and Memphis, we will post it immediately. Stay tuned.

We are now (May 2008) parked in Hot Springs about 30 minutes from Little Rock. At first we were very impressed with this area -- the deepest green vistas we have seen since leaving Portland. But then we talked to a few natives and discovered the high temperatures and even higher humidity that is so common here in the summer. So we will not be settling in Arkansas

Before leaving Texas we ate at Babes Chicken, just outside of Dallas -- twice!!! It is absolutely the best fried chicken you will ever eat in Texas. Side dishes served in separate bowls include mashed potatoes, corn and greens. YUM!!!

The pictures include shots of Wichita Falls and the red river that feeds the falls. Jann and a brief visit with an ex-president and the hog statue sits outside of the Farmers Market in Little Rock -- go figure. There is also a picture of a typical Arkansas RV that was converted from a truck. You gotta love Arkansas.
As you can see, gas is a lot cheaper in Arkansas and we bought a bar for eldest son Dennis, Jr for his retirement. Now we are on to Tennessee hopefully to meet up with son Kevin for the famous Memphis Barbecue cook off. Pictures and report to follow.

We left New Mexico and are now in Amarillo, TX. We'll stay here a couple of days then move South East. We really enjoyed seeing the kids in New Mexico, but the injury list ran too high:
1. Dana Deane: torn ligament on her thumb

2. DECO, Jr. -- possible torn rotor cuff, sprained elbow and thumb and severely bruised hip

3. Grand Ma Jann -- sprained ankle, Bruised elbow and hip.

The price we had to pay was too high. We are crossing NM off the list for family vacations -- BAD JU-JU!!! Not only that, as you can see --- as soon as the kids left, Santa Fe turned into a winter wonderland. Go figure.

Hello All -- well we finally made it out of California and have come to rest here in Santa Fe, NM. Jann got a clean bill of health!!! Yea!! So we are in the first leg of our cross-country journey. We met up with Kevin and his family and DOC and Gail in Santa Fe. We had a great time. Here are some shots of our stay in NM and a group shot of the family. I took the picture, Jann was missing and Dana and Ellis were off shopping. As you can see, Jann got into a little difficulty with the local constabulary, but we were able to bail her out. The other shot is of two old guys enjoying an espresso, in the New Mexico afternoon sun. Next stop will be somewhere in Tennessee. Grand Ole' Opry, here we come. Stay tuned.

Hello All -- we are currently in Santa Barbara headed for So. Cal. We will spend the month in Long Beach and Anaheim while we have doctor stuff taken care of. Then we move on to Santa Fe to hook up with Kevin/Dana and DOC/Gail, and kids. Here are a few shots of the missions we have visited and a pix of a very pretty girl and her new baby on Christmas morning. Stay tuned.
