Daily Prompt: No Rolling Stone Here


Daily Prompt: Rolling Stone

If you could live a nomadic life, would you?
Where would you go? How would you decide?
What would life be like without a “home base”?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVEL.

We happen to know several couples who own an RV (Recreational Vehicle) and travel back and forth from each of their childrens homes across the United States.
To constantly be in a trailer, mobile home or what ever you want to call it is not what lifestyle I would ever want.
Granted, they have no mortgage (unless they owe on the RV) and only have to pay for car gasoline.
They do not have to pay property taxes, just for the license of the RV.

I think that it takes a certain type of person, one who loves camping to live like this.
To always be on the road and traveling.  To stop at various cities and not know anyone.
It is a special type of person who really enjoys this lifestyle and would not buy a home again.
Sometimes it is all about the ability to keep up the home.  (Although, you have to maintain an RV also).

I prefer to be able to walk into my own back yard and take my doggies (and kitties) for a walk.
When I walk them it is all four of them.  The cats do their duty at the same times as the dogs.
The dogs love being able to play in the neighbors hayfield and the neighbor does not mind either.
He says it looks like our dogs are patrolling their property and they feel safer because of it.

I like having roots here and a place where my children could come to visit if they wanted to for a vacation.

I love the weather in Tennessee, especially in the Winter.
While locals think we are having terrible weather or temperatures,  I am enjoying not having snow to my waist.

Central New York State Under Water


Our Prayers go out to the families in Central NY who are battling with the flooding conditions as we speak.
With heavy downpours still in the forecast there is no relief in site.
Thanks to friends back in New York via Facebook, here are current pictures to show what is happening.

Daily Prompt: Dear John Letter


Daily Prompt: Shape Up or Ship Out

Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out.
Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us UGLY.

Dear Introverted Self:

Since your arrival in Tennessee almost four years ago, it has come to the worlds attention that you have become a home body.
We do agree that your 7 1/2 acres is a beautiful place to live.
The magnolia tree in the back is just now starting to bloom with the magnificent blossoms that smell so wonderful.
druid

The humming birds are just returning so the feeders must be prepared for their return.
The herb flower pots are ready to start to be planted. The front of the store will soon look like a small green house.
IMG_0002The apple trees have just bean to bloom and their fragrance can be smelled across the yard the entire summer.
IMG_0002 (3)
We understand that it is difficult to drive with the sciatic nerve condition in your left leg trying to use the clutch.
A slight complication of the two fractured fingers on the left hand does give you a legitimate argument of safety while driving.

You win for now.  There will come a time when this dear john letter will be sent again.
There is an entire side of the city that you have never seen.
If something were to happen to your hubby I shiver to think what would happen if you could not purchase online, on base or at Walmart or Kroger.
You have a break till you heal.  Oh and another break till hubby’s surgery is over.
Then it is time to explore.  There is life after Dollar General.  Just because that is so close does not mean that you can’t find some adventure in life.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 20


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

 

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Since we did not get the email from Su Ho Woo till really late at night I had waiting till this morning to update on his status.

Here is the note that he sent us:

I am in Shut-In state park  MO now!! my fingers of left hand barely move so hard to type OMG
I camped in north land btw 2 lakes and I made Cape Giradeau in a day!! I had to ride a rocky road in a mountain in the dark though. Luckily I got a host over there!!
I miss you guys~ this state park is new, has wifi in the store, and I was too tired and rode enough today
fortunately, I just met a bicycle traveler so I can share a spot!!!!
I got you some photos
the road which seems that it had flood is state park in metropolis and blue bridge was scary!!
I will send you future photos when I get a change!!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We wish him well on his journey.  We are praying for his safety and that people will meet him and be kind.
We are glad that he found another bicyclist to spend some time with.
This will encourage him to carry on and finish his journey to Los Angeles California.

The one candid appearance of me lol was at the Korean Restaurant “New Korean Restaurant” in Clarksville, Tennessee.
I am usually the one taking the pictures.

That makes for very few pictures of myself in my gallery.

Till the next time,

Road Trip A-Z Challenge So Ho Woo at Dinner & Departure


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

We decided to treat Su Ho Woo to some authentic Korean food so we took him to a local restaurant in our area for a buffet where he could get everything from fresh seafood to Kimchi. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimchi

The New Korean Restaurant is located at 2030 Ft. Campbell Blvd in Clarksville, TN and their number is (931) 645-6479  since you can do dine in or carry out.  They are open seven days a week.  Monday – Thursday 11-10, Friday and Saturday 11-11 and Sunday 1-9.

I will let the pictures do the talking for me.

CIMG0093 CIMG0094 CIMG0095 CIMG0096 CIMG0097 CIMG0098 CIMG0099 CIMG0100 CIMG0101 CIMG0102

It was good to the last drop.  We came home and sat around a fire in the pit that is on our back patio until time to go to bed, just discussing the different cultures and various topics.

This morning, I made sure that he had a big breakfast to start him out on his journey

CIMG0105

Along with juice, eggs and toast he was set to prepare for his journey.

CIMG0103 CIMG0104

Hubby and Su Ho Woo went over his travel route so that he would know what elements and conditions he could expect.  Also what routes to follow that would make his journey easier.

CIMG0106 CIMG0107 CIMG0108 CIMG0109 CIMG0110 CIMG0111 CIMG0112 CIMG0113CIMG0121CIMG0122

Just before his departure he surprised us both with a gift and something to always remember him by.

CIMG0123 CIMG0124 CIMG0125 CIMG0126 CIMG0127

We miss his presence already and wish him a safe journey on his quest.  He is going to try and check in every so often to send me pictures and keep us updated so that I can blog about his progress across the USA to Los Angeles California.

Should you see a lone biker out there with flags, stop and say hello.  That might just make their day.  It might enrich your life more than theirs.
May we show him kindness the entire way of his trip.

God Bless him for his quest and for what it stands for.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 17


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

This afternoon, while my husband was on his way to the local store, he passed a biker on the side of the road.  Many people during the course of the day, I am certain passed this same biker and thought nothing of it.  My hubby quickly ran his errands and then proceeded to find the biker on his way home.

What had caught the attention of my hubby was the small flags that were flying on on back of the bicycle.  He invited him to join us in our home for the evening.

His name is SuHo Woo.  He is riding from Washington D. C. to Los Angeles California on his bicycle to signify the need for peace in South Korea.

He is soon to be 30 yrs. of age.  He is fascinating to sit down and converse with.  Only certain sections of the country have given him a cold shoulder and have not shown a welcome hospitality to him.  Shame on them.  They are the ones who missed out.

CIMG2654

He is a true gentleman in all aspects of the word.  Very polite and respectful.  He had lunch with us of pulled pork, southern baked beans and southern potato salad from a local restaurant.  He was able to taste some real Southern style foods that come directly from our area.  Davie’s Hot House B- B -Q (1754 Woodlawn Rd, Clarksville, TN 37042) if you happen to come to the outskirts of Clarksville and are hungry some time.  They are only open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Plan accordingly.

CIMG2655 CIMG2656 CIMG2657

This is going to be a long journey for this young man.  It is a way for him to clear his head and look bright into the future.  He has overcame back injury through exercise and the biking is something that he truly enjoys.

CIMG2658 CIMG2659 CIMG2660

He also has his camera so while I was snapping shots, I had to capture memories of today for him as well.  Tonight we are taking him to a local Korean Restaurant as a treat.  My hubby is just as excited as Su Ho Woo.  It is one of my hubby’s favorite places to go.  I will be taking pictures throughout the meal and will blog about it upon our return.

He is staying the night with us and will continue on his journey after I have fed him a hearty breakfast to give him plenty of energy for his ride.

Best of luck to Su Ho Woo and his journey as well as the cause that he rides for.

Till after Dinner,

Tammye Honey
