  Let's talk SUBARU, if you are someone who needs a new car, please do investigate, do you research and learn more about the SUBARU brand glad to be back in a SUBARU again, I feel safe, I feel secure and knowing that there are so many safety helpers (items that can assist) in this car, to watch out for us. Back to being a SUBARU family, if only we could get my hubs parents in one, maybe one day soon??!?! I miss my Crosstrek that I had 4 or was it 5 years ago ... it was orange, loved it.

Soda Pop's Ice Cream, 125 Everett Street, Bryson City, NC. (828) 788-0013 Hey there, friends. I appreciate you all for visiting and commenting, you are always so super kind. I have been checking out some ole' bloggy friends that I've not visited in years. Not that I forgot about them just kind of missed placed them or didn't visit as much as I once did. Is that not the best? Playing catch up and chatting up a storm? How, you might ask? I went back into my comments from a long time ago and found their blogs and visited. You gotta keep up with your friends.  So this cutie was on a recent trip we took in May beginning of June 2024. We got to the Smoky Mtn, Tennessee oh man ... the green ...they have definitely been lucky in the rain department, so lush and green there.  Now all of these sights were not seen in 1 day, but over multiple days, like 5 it was a long journey of backroads over days. Ever had "Pal's Sudden Service" , great burgers, fun d

Rugby, TN

  Rugby Schoolhouse, 1907 "Rugby, originally conceived as a class-free, agricultural community for the younger sons of English gentry, was named after Thomas Hughes’ alma mater in England.

Starting in 1880, it was at its peak in the mid-1880s, with about 300 people living in the colony. More than 60 buildings of Victorian design graced the townscape on East Tennessee’s beautiful Cumberland Plateau. Hughes originally envisioned this community as a cooperative enterprise, with a cultured, Christian lifestyle, free of the rigid class distinctions of Britain. .." The day we did visit in 2023, fall time visiting was windy and very chilly out, so we only saw a very small amount of Rugby. Chatted with the lady working in the gift shop and used their restroom. Gorgeous architecture and fun to see how it was all survivi
