Over the River and Through the Woods… Again!

[Suck Creek Mountain TN]

Today, we went to visit Grandma Holley and Aunt Frances in Maryville and Oak Ridge (respectively). That’s quite a haul back and forth, but I really do enjoy it!

They both seem to be doing great. I hope I am as quick of mind and as mobile when I reach Grandma’s age!

While on the drive back from Frances’ new home, I was so reminded of being out west again — weird to have that same resonance twice in two days! — with the gentle lay of the mountains in the distance, purple from the thickness of atmosphere between here and there.

It was a nice trip, and it was certainly nice to see Grandma and Frances again. I need to get down here more often to see them!
