Travel 🧳 is Always FUN! But, the saying holds True! ”There’s NO Place Like Home”! ❤️

I have been absent from my Blog for a couple of weeks now. I was surprised at the # of people that sent comments to me about my absence… The messages were mostly concern that something was wrong since I write something every day… Thanks for that! But, No, there was nothing wrong! I abstained from posting in order to be totally present during a LONG road trip with my wife Jo. We were on a business, training, buying… ‘adventure’, that took us all across the South! Down thru Mississippi, across the Panhandle of Florida, along the Florida Springs trail, across to the Atlantic side and all the way down historic Coastal Highway A1A to the end of the road “Mile Marker 0” in Key West! Then back up through central Florida into Georgia exploring Nurseries and HUGE Ornamental Plant Growing operations! We even spent the night in Greg Allmans bedroom and visited the graves of some of my (and probably your) musical hero’s… Climbed a mountain, and finally ended up back home in the middle of an Ice 🧊 Storm ⛈!!!

This was my worst nightmare! A possible repeat of the Ice Storm of 1994 😳

Thank God that we were spared from a repeat of 94 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 But it was a shock to the system to come back to heavy winds from the north and 18 degree temps 🥶

This is a garden I just left down in South Florida… All I can say is ”Come on Spring”!

Over the next few days I will share some pictures and stories of our recent travels and some news of things to come 😊

To boil it down – I’m back & I am excited about 2022!

And, I’m so glad to be back home again!!!

A Simple Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

These beautiful Waterfalls are at the top of the Tennessee Aquarium and are part of the Otters domain. It really feels natural when your viewing this feature & the sound is so nice. I hope this little clip will bring some Zen to your day!

The Tennessee Aquarium, Old Friends, Good times!

Today Jo & I met up with some old friends and went on a tour of the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. All of us are fish nuts so this was a treat! We are on the last leg of our “Anniversary Trip” & this was a LOT of fun!

I hope you enjoy the pictures.

PS: For a little added fun, play the music video and then view the pictures while it plays 😂

Great Day at the Tennessee Aquarium!
