Going Back a Bit on Lazy Sunday

The year was 1985. New Coke was introduced, "We Are The World" was recorded, the wreckage of the Titanic was located, the Ninendo game console was introduced, leaded gas was officially banned in the U.S. and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame opened in Cleveland. Oh, and Denny and I got married.

The family took two trips that year; one to Gatlinburg where we got married and one to Stone Mountain, Georgia. Denny and the boys took a separate trip to our property near Fair Play, South Carolina, but since I was not fond of using a 5 gallon bucket as a commode, I passed on that particular vacation. I much prefer the way we travel now.


Our beloved van (with the paint job I designed) and our 14 acres on "Lake Linda". When we asked the realtor who assisted our purchase of the property what the name of the pond was, he quickly responded "Lake Linda". He was good, real good--and he made the sale!


Lake Linda--hard to believe we sold this, huh?


Stone Mountain in Georgia. This is a great place to bring your kids--they can climb the mountain, play at the water park, ride a train and more. The laser light show at night is fabulous.


You can walk all the way to the top of Stone Mountain, and twenty-two years ago Denny and I could do it. I think it would take us much longer now. Note that Darby had to wait for us to catch up. Pant, pant.


The view from the top of Stone Mountain. The climb was worth it.


Darby throwing rocks into the creek at our cabin in Gatlinburg. This shot reminds me of a statue. We stayed at Carr's Cottages which have kitchenettes and creekside cabins. I love to sit outside and listen to the sound of the water rushing over the rocks here.

Happy belated anniversary! Today is ours. We were married in Gatlinburg too, only in 1990.
