Just Peachy!

Yawn....we slept in, mainly because Missy decided to have her own ATL 500 in the wee hours this morning, running from the front of the coach back to the bedroom, jumping on top of us, and then completing the circuit a few more times, bless her heart, until she tired out.

Good morning! We wound up staying here at the track another night, since the Petty experience took up most of the day and the site was already paid for:-) Gotta save where we can! So this morning we'll do the close-up, hook-up routine and head down toward Callaway Gardens....and then repeat that process in the reverse. I'll definitely post pics when available of the pretty things we see, and will leave you with a Georgia joke for today (thanks, Dee!):

Copper Wire

After having dug to a depth of 10 yards last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, California scientists dug to a depth of 20 yards, and shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: 'California archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'

One week later, the "Newnan Times Herald," a newspaper in the small town of Newnan, Georgia, reported the following: 'After digging as deep as 30 yards in cotton fields near Newnan in Coweta County, Bubba Johnson, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Georgia had already gone wireless.'

Oh, Anna's cats used to do that when I had them in the house - and always after I went to bed, they'd run up and down the stairs and all places in between - it's amazing how much noise two cats can make chasing each other up carpeted stairs! Sorry Missy decided to have her catfit in the middle of the night but hope the sleeping in made up for it! Enjoy Callaway, it's one of my favorite spots.
Hugs, Joy

Can't get to SoCal this year, with a baby due in June and a cruise planned for August. We're thinking CO next summer, so maybe we can get that far west. Miss y'all!
