Here At Last!!
Vacation is here at last!!!! Just a few short hours and we'll be pulling out...all the knitting and spinning goodies are packed--Oh yes....and the food and other necessaries too!
We are going to Grayson Highlands State Park, the highest peak in Virginia. This is also the area where part of my family came from...yep, this is where all those "mountainisms" come from in my family! My Granny & Granddaddy had a lot of the "old ways" about them. These days I'm hearing things coming into "vogue" (today it's refered to it as New Age) that my Grandmother used to tell me about. Some people would talk about "Old Wives Tales" and we used to poke fun at some of the things my grandparents would talk about, but some of those things have a truth to them. If you ever read any of those "Foxfire" books--that's the way my Grandparents lived even here in the city!
It has been told that there are wild horses at Grayson Highlands...I hope to see them! I have friends who have seen them! I thought the only wild horses in Virginia are on Assateague Island on the Eastern Shore.
Well...I'll be back in a week!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
