…. Today, in a relaxed fit of adventurous abandon, we’re off to ride a stretch of recently revitalized rail….. indeed, we’ll be riding the lunchtime run from Etowah down towards Georgia that follows the mighty Hiwassee….. here’s the link….

… I tell you, folks, us people from the Tennessee Overhill certainly know how to have fun….. oh yeah….. most of the afternoon will be spent fondling a bag of Lay’s potato chips and sipping a RC Cola as the mountains slide past my air-conditioned cabin……

…. We’ll lunch in the scenic mining community of Copperhill, Tennessee….. which is of note for many reasons, but mainly in my mind because one of my 1920s era relatives lost both arms there in a little oopsie involving dynamite, copper ore, and a fuse that was just a bit too short.….

…. I’m sure y’all are just as excited as I am, so I will make a point to take lots of photographs….

… in other news, I am happy to hear that everyone’s favorite Rick & Georgia have invaded Mexico!... rock on, you two!... once they’ve successfully colonized Panama, I might just stop by to visit them on my way to Crazyman’s blogmeet…

… oh, and before I forget… there seems to be some confusion regarding what was gifted to The Missus for her birthday…. So I had better that that all cleared up lest you hammerheads be left with the impression that I only bought her socks….

gifts: a sapphire & diamond ring, a bag of chewing gum, a bunch of chocolate, the trip that we are going on today, three books from Books-a-Million, three 1lb blocks of cheese, and six pairs of multi-colored socks….

Boy am I glad the spousal unit doesn't read this blog. I totally spaced on the multicolored socks for her last birthday. I would never hear the end of it!
