On the Road Again
Keisha has packed her bags and she's ready to hit the road! Some people fantasize about shaking pink sand off their feet in the Bahamas. Some people dream of sipping a latte in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. Some think of the perfect vacation as a week of spa treatments, or gondola rides through the canals of Venice.
Not Keisha-- she's all psyched up about our trip through the Redneck Riviera... one day of touring the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Followed by a tour of the Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. As if that weren't enough... Keisha can't wait to get to Pigeon Forge to visit her Mecca, Dollywood! She looks forward to meeting Dolly, even though I told her that Dolly's a busy woman and I doubt that she actually works in the fun park each day. Keisha insists that Dolly Parton is a ticket-taker at the front gate every day. I guess there's always a chance, though.
After Dollywood, we'll head to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a full day of shopping. I've been there before and I don't remember any great shopping there, but I guess we can get a handmade candle or something. We'll also ride the ski lift to the top of the mountain. I don't know why people do that- especially in August! There's no reason to ride the ski lift in the middle of the Summer. You get to the top, look around, take a few pictures, stroll through the gift shop and then ride back down. The only good thing about it is that you get your picture taken on the ride up. I think that's the part that Keisha is looking forward to the most. She loves the camera, and she's selected a beautiful evening gown to be photographed in. I keep telling her that an evening gown won't look right in a ski lift picture, but she insists that it'll be perfect.
It's going to be a fun-filled five days, traveling with Keisha on her dream trip tour of SE America (she told her friend's at work that she's going to South America- she gets a little confused sometimes). We'll keep you posted!
