Well, Bless my Heart

As Katie meowed everyone this morning, I am on my way over the Mountains in the morning.  Can't wait.  Been too long since I was there.  The son who lives there spent all his summer break in Uruguay and in Costa Rica as a Fulbright Scholar,  so he wasn't available during a good part of the year.

And here at home,  there are many appointments that Favorite Brother to Katie (she has two more favorites as well...) has quite a few appointment to keep and I like to support him by being there.  Trying to match schedules with the rest of the boys is hard sometimes,  BUT I am on my way in the morning.  Please tell folks on I-485 Sunday morning to behave themselves and let me merge off  the  too short ramp onto the Interstate.  That's the only place that makes me nervous.

Going to my two fave consignment stores..oh BOY!  I always show you some photos from there or from uptown.   AND I am going to the Cat Cafe  that Charlotte has now!   I love Charlotte.  If the cost of housing was not so high..I would live there.  There are many bank Corporate Office
flagships there.  They are all uptown in skyscrapers...just gorgeous architecture inside and outside of the buildings.  Charlotte is the second largest banking city in the U.S. with NYC being the biggest, I understand.  I always like taking the DSLR and walking uptown (beautiful City) and taking pictures of the bank buildings.  My bank,  Bank of America, has THE single most impressive looking on there and the tallest.

Here's to us! (Going back home after a visit...about half way home)


  1. Have a great time! And just merge...the other cars will get out of your way. I suggested, too, that Katie number her favorite brofurs, #1, #2, etc...LOL!

  2. I hope you'll have a wonderful visit! Looking forward to some pics. Maybe you'll even treat yourself to something from one of the shops. :-)

  3. Dearest Carole,
    Oh, you will meet with such pride this time around, for seeing your Fulbright Scholar face to face! May all your travels go smooth and please don't be nervous. Just make speed, use the blinkers and push right in there!
    ENJOY your trip and guess the fall colors are starting already.
    Big hugs,

  4. Katie Isabella you are a most magnificent sista to all 3 of your favorite brovvers!!
    Charlotte is in a most lovely part of the state and you are correct $$$
    Enjoy your visit
    Hugs Cecilia

  5. I sure hope drivers will behave themselves...I always get a bit nervous when merging to highway. Love those colors of the trees on the side of the road. Have a great time!

  6. Safe travels Carole! I'm sure you'll enjoy your time with Katie's favorite brovver. :)

  7. I had no idea Charlotte was such an important banking hub. I wonder what puts some cities in that category. They aren't always the most populous or important in other ways.

    Have a great trip!

  8. What a nice trip. The scenery is captivating. Thanks for sharing this beautiful trip, I really enjoyed it. Your photos are awesome!

    Wishing you a Happy Sunday!

  9. We hope you're having a great time, Carole! XO

  10. The sky in your photo is really beautiful and fascinating.
