Good News, Bad News and an Apology

First I want to apologize to all my blogging friends.  I haven’t been doing much commenting or blogging lately.  I’ve been in some kind of funk and I’m trying to get out of it and back into visiting with all of you again.  Thanks to all who continue to visit my blog, even though I haven’t been updating very often.  But like the title of this blog, I have some news.

First the bad news.  Yesterday I went up to take another picture of the view from my blind.  From the back everything looked just fine, but then I noticed on one side the zippers were unzipped.  Hmmm, that’s strange.  Then I could see the front was ripped and my chair sticking out of it.  We’ve had lots of wind lately and it must have caused all hell to break loose in my little blind.  I may be able to repair it with duct tape, but it did sit out in the sun, wind and rain all spring and summer, I think the elements got the best of it.  I’ll be adding a new blind to my Christmas list.  I know, in the big scope of things, this is hardly bad news, sad would be a better word for it.


But now for the good news.  On Saturday, I’m leaving on a trip to the Smoky Mountains!  Jim has no desire to travel and I do!  So I’ll be taking a bus tour and will be gone for 7 days and 6 nights.  I plan on sending pictures to my Facebook page and Google+ as well as adding some here when I get back.  The weather forecast sounds perfect!  Can’t wait to board that bus at 6:05 Saturday morning.  See ya all when I get back.

You will love the bus tour to the Smokey's. I went on quite a few bus tours with my daughter when I first retired. Lots of fun!!

Sorry about your blind.

Have a wonderful trip. So your husband doens't care to travel anymore, or just to this place? Don't apologize about your blog. It takes LOADS of time to keep it going. I don't know how some people manage it. Some folks have 4 or 5 blogs too!

Don't feel bad, I've been in a funk for a long time. I keep thinking I have to get back at it but every time I start to write something Brody get's into something and I have to stop what I'm doing to see what he's up too lol. I know, excuses excuses. I'll try to do better too.
Have a wonderful time on your trip, I know you will. I can't wait to hear all about it and see those pictures.
