Travel pics

We stopped overnite in Staunton, Va right off route 81. When we were heading back to the highway we passed under a trestle and there was the coolest flower pot and watering can. They are huge - you can see the highway overpass to get the scale. I made Curt pull over so I could take a picture-

There was a cool building that looked like a guitar on 81 that I took a picture from the rest stop-

A few days later when we were heading to Nashville, we wanted to avoid the traffic we saw when we went past on the way to Memphis, so Curt's plan was to aim Garmin somewhere south of Nashville for lunch and then to the hotel would take us around the construction. As I was looking through all the brochures there was an ad for the Loveless Hotel and Cafe. Do you ever watch Throwdown with Bobby Flay? Carol Fay beat Bobby on biscuits and jam. So we went there. OMG - the food was awesome!! But I hate to say the biscuits were ok. I think she won off the jam. They give you three kinds of jam with your biscuits, peach, strawberry and blackberry. The blackberry was absolutely amazing!! We ended up buying jars of all three jams. There are a bunch of shops in what used to be the motel. We definitely helped stimulate the local economy on that stop. We even bought chocolate at an art gallery! How foofoo is that??

you are orange

Your dominant hues are red and yellow... most of what you do is motivated by your need to change things and have a good time, but you've been known to settle down and think out a situation, too. You tend to surprise people just when they're starting to feel like they've got you down.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.
