Livin’ Large in North Carolina

This is where we live (I get to be part of  “we” when I’m here)


Where the bugs are huge


And the babies travel in herds


Where the vines cover everything


And the healthy living trails are brought to you by the American Tobacco Industry


Where they love ironworks


and they search relentlessly for ET.


And where I’m having a fabulous time with my daughter and son-in-law.  Tomorrow we go scope out Wilimgton, home of the Beach 2 Battleship 140.6 and 70.3 to which I will be returning come November.

    Ps. That insect is disgusting. Looks like the huge bugs that I saw in Australia

    Our website is pretty young and we need the support to reach our
    targeted audience (people interested in running). I wanted to ask you

    If you have the time I invite you to see our site and have some fun
    with our quizzes. After reading about you and some posts on your blog

    I lived there for 3 years … your post brings back great memories! I kind of miss the kudzu sometimes, and the smell of tobacco everywhere in Durham. Have a great trip!
