Poor Blog - All Ignored


With the ups and downs of Summer 2006 it seems that the blog has been ignored. And now Blogger is giving me a hard time about uploading pictures!! So this post is in two parts.

Well, I can fix that 'cause I've been a bit busy. So what did I do over the summer (besides crochet)? Hubby and I did a bit of traveling! Of course, isn't that what summer is for?

We got up-close and personal with a C-17 and some nice young men from the Mississippi Air National Guard. This is one of the military transport planes that flies troops and supplies from the US and Iraq and back. It is absolutely huge! I've watched this plane doing fly-overs and was thrilled to get the chance to actually go inside one.

Poor Blog, Part 2

We also traveled to Breaux Bridge, Louisiana (also known as the crawfish capitol of the world) and stayed in the cutest little cabin near town. We ate lots of beignets and lots of crawfish - they serve crawfish sauce with everything. We took a swamp tour thru the swamps of Lake Martin. Saw lots of birds, three alligators and a wee little frog.
Then we spent a few days in Tupelo, MS. Tupelo's big claim to fame is being the birthplace of Elvis Presley and there are quite a few Elvis related places around. We stopped by the house that Elvis lived in as a child.

A side trip to Memphis, TN was necessary for Yarn Shopping! Memphis has several yarn shops but I spent all my yarn budget at Yarniverse. Great fun and I'll have to go back sometime soon.

I've been crocheting and I've got a few things to post later on. Ya'll be good now and come back real soon!
