Back Home












When the opportunity presented itself last week for some time off, I grabbed it with both hands, well the steering wheel that is, and hit the open road. Actually, a couple of friends called and invited us to meet them at a lodge in the foot hills of the North Georgia mountains for some catching up. For a change this little vacation was relaxing and much needed, and gave me time to visit with old friends that had been absent from my life for way too many years. But as usual, one of life's mysteries, you know the one, the mystery of how time flies by when you have time away from work occured and all too soon I find myself back home. But to be prefectly honest, it was time, I am one of those guys that actually relishes his alone time, and I was beginning to miss it some of the bad, and it goes without saying but I will, I missed you guys (my blogging friends) more than you'll ever know.

Phew, now you’re back I feel better already.

Missed you too. I LOVE getting together with old friends. I also LOVE separation from old friends when the time allotted has expired.

It's all good.

jetboy, you're sweet, it is nice to know someone missed me. It was a nice little trip but I'm glad to be home and it is music to my ears to hear you're feeling better.

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. I lived very near there... in Highlands, NC for a while. I really didn't like the place, or some of the people, but it sure is pretty up there.

Welcome home - yes, you were missed! Time away is good, but sometimes getting home is even better - sounds like a great trip- glad you were able to get away...

Stephen said...

mikell, thanks for dropping by and the welcoming home.

steve, never actually been to Highlands but have vacationed all around in that area before and yes, it is beautiful country.

phoenixboi, it was quiet and peaceful, just what I needed, the "Back Home" pic is from the top of the falls looking down.

woe, thanks my friend, I missed you, too.

spider, yes time away is good and I always enjoy it but like "Dorothy" There's no place like home.
Being home and being able to catch up with you and the rest on the guys, well, it's a good thing.

Welcome back! It's not only good to get away from home for a while but also good to get away from the damn computer for a while LOL (we all need to do that too once in a while!)

Hope you had a great time. I wish I could figure out how to make work go by as fast as vacations do - now that would really be sweet!
