This afternoon I did a few things–at the T@B tiny travel trailer–in preparation for a Saturday morning departure. I plan to visit Asheville, North Carolina, the Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and whatever attraction crosses my path. I’ll also go to Wilkesboro, North Carolina, for an appointment with my holistic health doctor. ~~ At this hour (6:00 PM), I’m considering NOT taking my laptop computer. My e-mail is overflowing with political messages!! The TV programming and commercials (as you well know), is endless political messages. I’m sick of it!! I probably won’t have electricity for TV so–without the laptop computer–I can relax and “recharge” from several stressful months. (I’ve worked extra hours to cover for coworkers on vacation. I made headway on “downsizing.”) ~~ En route to my mini-vacation, tomorrow I’ll attend a regional meeting for Operation Christmas Child. ~~ Anticipate an update when I return.
