I’m moving back home to Maryland

I have decided to move back home to Maryland. I have had a wonderful 3 years in Memphis, but realized that it’s more important to live with your family and friends rather than in a city you love – plus I’ve spent all my money. I don’t regret moving to Memphis or spending all [continue reading]

2010 My Year in Review

I had a fantastic 2010 and am looking forward to 2011. I visited many places I had been wanting to visit. I did not make it through my entire list, but I made quite a dent.

ON THE ROAD San Antonio to Southfork

Today was a great day, but it started out as badly as yesterday ended. We woke up before 6am and couldn’t get out of San Antonio fast enough. Our hotel was terrible and in a bad part of town. Also, San Antonio is just a big icky city. But before we left, we saw this cool sculpture, the Alamo, [continue reading]

ON THE ROAD Route 66 Texas

I like Texas better than Oklahoma. Although the first town we came to this morning along Route 66 was Erick, OK, and it was really cool. I just stood in the intersection turning around taking in the view. It was a beautiful old town! Then we got to Texas! First stop was Mclean. There was a restored [continue reading]
