Sept. 17 - Thurs.: Hung out in motel room at Roanoke, VA today, waiting on some heavy rain to move on through just south, in our path. Left about 11:00 am in heavy traffic,  but still got caught in some pretty good mist and fog ....some places, visibility to less than 200 yds, but cleared up quickly on down the road. (Clouds riding low on the mountains & hills).  Was able to take a short detour and visit Mt Airy, where the town of MAYBERRY in the Andy Griffth Show was filmed for television


...that was pretty cool. Really not a whole lot to see...just the experience of saying that we were in 'MAYBERRY'.
    We pulled up shortly before dark today in Statesville, NC and are staying at The Red Roof Inn. Had a delicious All You Can Eat Buffet at SHONEY'S, right next to the motel, for only $4.95 ea, senior discount (regular price $7.95 ea). Growing old does have its advantages.

While waiting in Roanoke this morning, received word that my dad was back in hospital with another urinary tract infection, so we'll be making our way on tomorrow in the rain as quickly and safely as the elements will allow. Please keep us in your prayers for a safe return trip home & also please keep my dad in your prayers as well.

GOOD NIGHT ALL.......Its bedtime........"No Worries, Its All Good".
