Great shirt...but nope to the beef. Sorry, I'm one of those who's given up red meat altogether.

19. Shows ya how dumb I am about red meat.

No sir, don't eat pork either. And I LOVED ham and bacon but stopped eating it. I'm sure your Boston butt was delicious too and must've smelled heavenly.

My east Tennessee granddaddy owned a slaughterhouse (right over the Smokies from you) and I grew up hearing my very religious momma say, "that's what gawd put 'em here for." She must've had a tinge of guilt about killin' 'em. And I grew up on a small 75 acre farm there where my pet calves would disappear. When my brother, sister, and I figured out what'd happened to them, we stopped eating red meat. It was as if they'd sent our dogs out for slaughter. I later resumed my heavier carnivore ways in my twenties but then stopped again for various reasons: compassion, my own health's sake and that of the environment's.
I'm one of those overly sensitive snowflakes. But to each, his own.

8. Land of the Waterfalls!!!

I've travelled from my home in Chicagoland many times to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, and I dearly love the spactacular waterfalls of Transylvania County.

21. Still looking good!

And still enjoying the outdoors, right?

I don't know what I'd do without my forays into Mother Nature. They keep me sane in these times.

Thanks for the photo.

22. Well, just glad to be kicking ..

This was six weeks after a horrible surgery for a gangrenous gall bladder. It exploded during surgery. I went septic, but recovered.

23. Oh, my.

That's frightening. So glad you came out of it OK. You're a trooper to be out hiking after six weeks.

17. What a long strange journey it's been, eh?


that month I was driving from Cal. to our new retirement home in SW Ala. but I know if I had gone as far as N. Carolina, I would have loved it there, too.
