OK, here's the latest news regarding the status of "Drivin' 55". For a variety of reasons, gas prices, the floundering economy, lackluster sales and Baby Jack, we have determined to hang up the travelin' shoes and stay put in Georgia. Although we will miss seeing this beautiful country, my grandson needs his grandparents!
We have seen so many beautiful places in the last year. To name a few... the thunderous beauty and energy of Niagara Falls, the coolness of the summer days in Manchester, New Hampshire, the beautiful corn fields and flat lands of the Midwest, the awesome and majestic Rocky Mountains, the thrilling views and drive to Pike's Peak, the calm, simple beauty of the desert in Arizona, the overwhelming engineering of Hover Dam, the serene sunsets of the Pacific coast, the incredible rock formations on highway 8 near the Mexico border and there are so many more that I cannot name them all.
Aside from the great memories we collected, one thing was always consistent, the people of this great country were and ARE awesome. We are a helpful, caring, friendly and kind nation. Although we may look different and live in different parts of the country, we all share a love our our great nation. We all love our families. We all want peace. And most of the women love to document their memories by means of scrapbooking. Afterall, that IS why we were "Drivin' 55"!
So with that said, we are our pondering the next chapter of our life. Where will it take us? You will have to stay tuned!
