Radio question of the day:
The average one of these lasts five days...and it's used by other people...
What is it?
My husband Niks and I went to Memphis for my sister Bonnie's funeral, and are now back home after a week on the road.
The service for Bonnie was nice, and very well attended, which made me feel good for her and her family. She left a husband, son, and three grandchildren. On the way back to Pennsylvania Niks and I went to the small village in the Tennessee hills where my parents, and all three of my sisters, were born. Bonnie was cremated, and I scattered some of her ashes there in the cemetery where most of my mother's family is buried. My father's family is buried in a different cemetery just down the road.
You see some strange things on the road. The above sign is one of them. A lot of folks in this country don't know how to spell. Just sayin'.
On the way home, Niks and I stopped at a few places that looked interesting. One of those places was "The Natural Bridge" in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. It is beautiful. They claim that it is higher than Niagara Falls. Those Virginians. It is very high, but I've seen Niagara Falls, and the falls appear higher to me. Probably that's just me.
I want to catch up with all of you, so now I'm off to do a lot of reading.
Answer to the radio question of the day:
Rolls of toilet paper.
No! That's not where I'm off to do my reading! You guys!
