Welcome to

Our Southern Vacation

My Sister Pat and her daughter Sandi told me they were coming up from Florida to watch the Cubs in Atlanta, so I talked my wife into driving down to join them.  The price of gas was under $3.00 per gallon once we got out of Illinois, so we only spent a little over $125.00 for a round trip.  We visited our Niece, Jean and her family in Georgia.

We wanted to spend the night in Nashville, but the NASCAR fans filled the motels, so we continued on to Murfreesboro.
