MMMMM...!!! Home at Last !!!

Yep finally back in Memphis. I knew I was home as soon as I was cut off by a lime green Gran Marquis with twenty four inch spinners , a Playboy sticker in the back window, and a heavy rap beat. Man it's great to be home. Almost makes me miss Connecticut.
Had a great trip home. Went to Hershey , PA . Saw the chocolate capitol of the world. Think over my lifetime I have probably paid for at least one wing of the tourist area. Then it was on to Cabela's in Wheeling, WV. More hunting stuff than you can shake a stick at. Could have easily dropped a paycheck there. Well, now that I think about it. I did drop a good precentage of it there. From Wheeling it was on to Clermont, KY. Home of the Jim Beam Distillary. Nestled into a hollow of the moutains of KY, it was a great place to visit. Nothing like the smell of good sipping whiskey in the air to get you fired up for the day. It was a great tour there, but I like the Jack Daniels Tour better. From there it was on to mom's. That last leg from Nashville to Memphis was a blur. Was it because I was drunk from the Jim beam visit? Maybe cause I was tired? No good reader, It was a blur cause I think I set a land speed record for four wheel drive crew cab trucks. Only reason I stopped at all was cause I didn't want to wet down the seat of my truck.
Of course I have pics of the places we stopped. They will be posted as soon as I get my laptop up and running. Actually got some pretty good pics. Can't wait to post them here.
Well I guess I'll be going for now. Look back soon as I will be posting from good ole Memphis and the area. May even get you some sites from here to look at.

Well happy readers. This is the last day I'll be working in Connecticut. Sunday AM my tail is heading South. Ready for moms cooking and to see my family and friends. I'm gonna be working in Memphis for the winter.
Speaking of winter, it's already been in the thirties here. And it's still in the eighties back home. Shoot I even had to scrape frost off the windshield the other morning. Not used to having to do that this early in the year. And of course I'm gonna have to get used to the heat and humidity of home again.
Today is my birthday. Sucks to be here alone for it. But one of the ladies I work with made me a cake and brought it last night. Really surprised me. I guess I've made a few friends here. I'm really going miss a bunch of the folks here. Hopefully we will keep in touch after I'm gone.
This will be my last post from here. Gonna turn in the modem in the morning and cancel internet. Next time I post it will be from the road or moms. It's been a great adventure here and it's just beginning. Gonna be in Memphis for the winter and then looking at Arizona for Febuary. Travel bug has bit me hard.
Well I'm gonna get off before I get too weepy. Post a comment if you want.
GONE !!!
