Thought for Tuesday

Flashback Friday

As I was walking  the "diva" dog...I heard the lyrical serenade of the South...Katydids and
as I listened to their melodic chorus - it took me back to the days that I grew up in Alabama.

As a kid...I remember wondering the yard looking for lightening bugs...capturing them in a mason jar (with holes in the top so they could breath).  How little it took for us to be entertained during those summer evenings!

Then before we knew it the summer days made way to the glorious fall colors.  We would rake up the many red and gold maple leaves that fell in our yard...and how much fun we had jumping into those piles of leaves that we just raked!



Another fond memory of the South - Golden Flake Potato Chips!  Have you ever eaten a Golden Flake potato chip?  If not - you really should....you can thank me later!


Such wonderful memories of a far simpler life...

Tuesday's Travels

Hello everyone and welcome to my little world of travel.

I love to travel and thanks to my job - I do get to travel to some exciting places.  I even managed to get a few non-business trips as well.

Please sit back and enjoy my summer travels!

June, 2014 took me to two different wonderful U.S. cities:

First...let's pack our backs for sunny Southern California...or to be more specific...let's go to San Diego!  I love San Diego - the beautiful mountains, the moderate temperatures and so many wonderful restaurants.  I really must do a Tuesday Travel on the restaurants I have enjoyed in my travels!


.
Let's return home for the weekend - do some much needed laundry, pack our bags and head out to Boston!  



Now - if you are a history buff...which I am....Boston is full of incredible history.  One must really take a trip to see Paul Revere's home..

August once again had me packing my bags but this time - it was an international trip...I just love getting stamps on my passport!  Unfortunately I am far from having a full passport.

The first trip of August took me to the always beautiful Manaus, Brazil.  I have said it before and I will say it again.  Brazil has some of the most gracious, kind, and unselfish people I have ever met.  Their hospitality is top notch!


 The architecture is breathtaking!
 I actually stayed in this hotel on my first trip to Manaus!

The day after I returned from Manaus - I packed my bags once again for another short trip...this time to Atlanta.


I drove right by this infamous restaurant in Atlanta but didn't have time to stop!  SO SAD!


I must say - while I do enjoy traveling...it is so good to be home!

Sunday's Inspiration
