The End of the Vacation

September 29, 2010

Table Rock proved to be the best campground because for the last 2 days we had not been able to shower.  Sponge baths were getting old and we were very glad to take a nice warm shower before going to bed.

Wednesday we drove through the mountains of upstate South Carolina.  It is such a beautiful state and the roads are well maintained and clean.

It was nice to get out of the twisty roads of North Carolina and Read the rest of this entry »


Table Rock (vacation part 5)

September 27, 2010

After a good night of sleep in Deep Creek, NC we headed down the mountains.  We have visited North Carolina many times and one thing that seems to be consistent in all of the western part of the state is that they love twisting, winding, mountain roads.  They don’t have any issues with people using their cell phones while driving because it is impossible to take a hand off the steering wheel or your eyes off the road long enough to push the buttons.

These signs are everywhere.

And the road look like Read the rest of this entry »

There were three fathers to be in a hospital waiting room, waiting for their babies to be born.

The first nurse comes out and tells the first father, “Congratulations you’re the father of twins!” He says, “Great! I am the manager for the Minnesota Twins.”

The second nurse comes out and tells the second father, “Congratulations you’re the father of triplets”! He says, “That’s cool! I work for 3M.”

The third father opens the window and jumps out.

The third nurse comes out, and asks, “Where’s the third father?”

One of the other fathers said, “Oh he jumped out the window.”

The nurse asks, “Why?”

He replied, “He works for Seven Up!”

“Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyabba-dabba-doooooooo!”

Flintstones… Meet the Flintstones,
They’re a modern stoneage family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They’re a page right out of history.”

(William Hanna / Joseph Barbera / Hoyt Curtin – 1965)

A page from TV’s history, The Flintsones, make a comeback every year about the time.

Pioneer outfits are my best seller all year until September and October come around.  At this time of year Pebbles and BamBam take the lead.

A few years ago a customer contacted me Read the rest of this entry »


Deep Creek (vacationpart 4)

September 22, 2010

Our second night of camping was in the Great Smokey Mountain Nation Park on the North Carolina side in a campground called Deep Creek.

The road to this campground is a winding road down the mountain to Bryson City and then into the park.  Once you pass through the city the road is lined with little shops like this, as well as, roadside stands that sell everything from ice to firewood.

It is a lovely drive into Deep Creek as you pass by waterfalls… Read the rest of this entry »


Crossing Over the Mountains (vacation part 3)

September 20, 2010

Our first day of exploring in the Smokies was beautiful.  This was our first view of the mountains.

There is only one road that crosses from the Tennessee side of the Mountains to the North Carolina side, and it is truly a twisty curvy road.  Lots of  90 degree turns and it is only a 2 lane road.

This was a new road sign to me Read the rest of this entry »

More Puns

Mahatma Ghandi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him………a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.

Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He’s all right now.

I couldn’t quite remember how to throw a boomerang, but eventually it came back to me.

Police were called to a daycare where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.

Some people’s noses and feet are built backwards: their feet smell and their noses run.
