I'm Back....

I have joined the ranks of AARP.....the big 5...0 yep a half a century. To celebrate we took a long road trip to the Georgia Mts. I can now say I have survived "throw up road" the hills filled with gold and Cabbage Patch Babies......Yep it took me until I was 50 but I got to see a real live birth of a Cabbage Patch Baby. To Make it even better the new mother's name was Kimberly and she gave her baby the same middle name as me...Dawn.

I now understand why the south is so slow and laid back......throw up road....the road to Suches GA is filled with turn back after turn may only be 15 miles but oh boy hold on to your favorite sights along the way....

a common fence lizard with a to die for blue tail---don't touch he can make you ill!!
He was sitting on my favorite subject of the trip!!

A perfect subject--he's got just a little bit of attitude!!
through the hills filled with gold .....

My sister and I played in the river....

while the men fished for these.....

only Mother Nature could come up with a trout rock!!

While Mr Bossman talked fishing I had the pleasure of meeting a "Phoebe" friend ---we even had close encounters with those beautiful little hummers....Boss man had a face to face with one!! MomyarSandy and I ready to visit the patch!! She is a true Georgia peach!!!

A nice beautiful place to play.....relax......and embrace being half a centuary old...make sure you click on the pics and then click again to really enjoy the beautiful wildflowers!!

Oh I have lots more pictures to share......


  1. Kimmy--CONGRATULATIONS!!!! and a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Sounds like you had a really wonderful trip!

  2. Happy Belated Birthday, friend! What a landmark birthday...and I'm happy to see you spent in in such a memorable way. The new Cabbage Patch and Mama's name is such a nice coincidence. And oh my goodness, your photography!!! You do wonders with photo editing...that vitage truck is increidible. What a great post, Kimmy!

  3. !! Happy Belated Birthday !! I'm on your hills of turning 50 ( November).
    Well gosh darn it girl wish I'd known you were just a stones thrown from me ( about 2 hrs).
    We took our daughter several times to the Cabbage Patch place when she was little. Did you shoot the 'Hootche as they call it (The Chattahoochee). We tubed it twice in Helen Ga. Of course I CAN'T swim and in my mind the water was about was 20-30' deep yet it really wasn't LOL

    And love how you titled "throw up road". Dramamine is my friend ANYTIME we head to the mountains.

  4. Happy belated birthday, Kimmy! Make that half a century Young!! Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Love the pictures, especially the waterfall. Glad to see you back! :)


I truly appreciate you taking the time to stop and visit
