HOTTER than the hinges of hell!!!

Well, Ashley and I finally made our trip to Tennessee. It was a long trip (12 hours total ) and the most tramuatic part was saying good bye to the dog at Merle and Jackie’s house. He looked shocked and Ashley cried when we pulled away but I think everyone survived. I was not as fazed by the good bye as I was conditioned by toddlers with their face pressed against the window screaming MOOOMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmY! Some how the dog running along the fence line didn’t seem as pitiful.

The temperature here is 102 degrees and as one of my southern friends says “It’s a three bra day”. It is so humid that even at 9 pm it is still sweltering and everybody just wants to be inside. Now I remember why I don’t like to visit in August..UGH!!

Taylor is just as adorable as ever. She is smart, opinionated and funny and I LOVE HER SO MUCH!!! We are doing the usual shopping at Walmart and playing with my jewelery. She never seems to tire of these activities. That is why I am sure we get along so well.
