GOT THIS......

HERE........WELCOME CENTER We are now in Florida. Left late on Thurs. day morning about 8:30 hit rain as soon as we got on I-95. We were almost at the GA-FL border. So when we got to the stopped to wait out the rain.

Got our free cup of OJ and walked Maggie around and were on our way again. No sooner on 95 and it was raining. I did that all morning, sometimes I had to pull off could not see. So much for stopping along the way to take a look at Florida. Finally I go on US 1 so I could pull of anywhere and not wait till I came to an exit. So it took me all day to get to Melbourne.

I have had a few health issues so that's the delay in posting. I got another cold and was not feeling the best. Also my feet have been bothering me alot this summer and came to a head this last week while traveling. I had to find a Doctor and lucky I got in on Friday. Got a shot in the heel and it is now getting much better. Went to a festival down in old town yesterday with Pearl, I will post about that on my other blog. Today I scrubbed the cealing in the FL room so I can get my art/craft set up. Foot did not like the ladder so now I will rest it the rest of the day. It was so bad I could hardly walk. I have some caches we found along the way and will post about those this week. Thats all for now thanks for looking and come back soon

A cache hiding in there.

See this was hiding there.

In a wall mart parking lot. We left a little later today 8:30 am. Maggie kept me awake alot last nite. She growled or barked at every little noise. Had breakfast on the way and stopped a little while later. The we stopped at WM for lunch, I found that it sure is cheaper that fast food. Both days spent $7 and had enough for lunch and supper. Was raining and lot of fog when we left this morning. Then in the afternoon well into GA we hit storms and rain, so hard had to pull over. So about 3:30 we stopped and called it a day. It stopped storming so we went out and found a few geocaches, and had our supper and now waiting for saviour to come on. We only have about 4 1/2 to 5 hrs to left to Melborune. I want to take it slow and maybe see a few things on the way. Might even check the maps and get of the interstate for awhile. Thats all for now thanks for looking and come back soon

A cache I found last week. I kept looking in all the wrong places, I should go with what my eyes see first!

This was hid in that geo wood pile.
Sunday ended the show and my daughter did well. Did not do much after that ended at 5 pm.

Monday daughter and I went to a grand opening of the new Hobby Lobby in Winchester. WOW!What great deals they had. Everything I bought was 50% off. I spent more than I should have and not as much as I wanted too. I will take pic's and show the goodies next week on my other blog. Monday evening the took me to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings, late for my birthday. Nice place to eat and play.

Tues. today we left Winchester about 7am drove for about 2hrs and stopped for breakfast. Then went on a ways and stopped again. Spent about an hr. looking around and found a geocache. Then back on the road. Stopped again for lunch. Went in a WM and got enough for lunch and supper cheaper than fast food and better for you. Went on and finally stopped about 4:30 for the night. Ate the rest of our food, found a geocache , went to $ store and now in for the night.

Had rain all morning, of and on rain in afternoon. Just a little while ago the sun came out.
All for now thanks for looking and come back soon

WINCHESTER APPLE HARVEST: Back in the day when we did this show it would have been wall to wall people. I did did this show for about 18 years. It was a drizzle of rain day, and did pick up a little in the afternoon. My daughter did set up this year. Let you know how it was later.These tye dye have been around for ever, I thought that they would be done with here in the 2000's but they are still hanging in there. Double booth no less.Winchester is the home of White House apple sauce and other apple products. The had booths at each end of the show, with these antique vehicles. This one is horse drawn.And this one is an antique flat bed truck. I think these old things are great.
We left about 9 am Friday morning. Went what I call the back way, (not the PA turnpike) mostly on secondary roads. Took I-79 south until we hit the National Historic Highway in PA. US 40.
Nice drive with lots of history to see along the way, but slow driving. So it took almost 7 hrs what would have taken 5. Stopped a couple times and found one geocache along the way.
Sat. did not feel so great, this cold is a bummer, but went over to the crafts show and sat with my daughter. Not to exciting, rainy and cloudy day. Crowed was way down.
Sunday waiting for a while before I go sit with my daughter again. SIL is going to go watch the Steeler game later and I will go help her then. Think before I go, will go over to books a million and look around.
All for now thanks for looking and come back soon

I had a great day at the yard sales today. Got 57 of these great post cards, all for only 8.00. The graphics are wonderful on them. I am really not sure how to use them yet with my altered art projects. 003

I will be leaving and heading south next Friday. I can’t wait….it has been a long summer and not a great one at that. We will be stopping in VA to visit my daughter and family and then after a few days heading on down to FL.004

I was planning on staying at camp grounds instead of motels but I have so much to take with me the truck will be full of altered art stuff, can you believe that! I have gone back and unpacked thinking of what I could leave here and I don’t want to leave any of it!005

I am again taking my time traveling and taking 3 days to get there. Hope to take a few back roads and not all interstates. I found out a week ago that I need a new furnace and now have to turn the gas off for the winter, and that means turning off the water also. Now that is a whole other post…they have been trying to find the water turn off at the street for 2 days now. Coming mon or tues with a back hoe. And there goes the end of my drive way. I am glad that the water co. has to replace it. I will post some pic’s next week. Not much geocaching going on either. Well all for now thanks for looking and come back soon
