For the most part we have been having a great time. Last night we stopped at a Best Western in Newport, Tennessee. The only reason we stayed was because he told me they have wireless in the rooms. We even took an upstairs room, even though we have bad knees, because he said it would have better reception. NOTHING. They tried to blame it on everything from us having Vista to the weather. Talk about frustrated!
We stopped at a couple neat places today. One was KFC Cafe, which is where the original Kentucky Fried Chicken was. There is a little museum there, and the original kitchen is there (they don't cook there now! lol). I took lots of pictures, but evidently I brought the wrong cord with my camera and will have to wait until we get home to post them.
Late this afternoon we went to a really nice winery/vineyard and gift shop. We bought a gift for a certain elf there. Yep, you guessed it--it's a shirt!
Okay, okay, there might be more to it than that.
Thanksgiving seems too far away now!
Before we even checked in to our motel tonight we drove around the building with our wireless meter (forgot to use it last night, obviously!) and it showed a very strong signal. So we watched this week's Big Brother shows and are now getting caught up on other things, like email and DC.
We are in Scottsburg, Indiana tonight. We have been using our new Tom-Tom GPS unit and have been amazed at how great it has been. One of the nice things is that instead of just saying we need to exit, it tells us if we need to be in the right or left lane. I should say "she" and not "it," as it is a very nice sounding British "lady" telling us where to go! James was calling it "Thomas" (for Tom-Tom), but I said that since it is a female (we had a few voice choices) she is Thomasina.
My leg is still a little pink in places, but I noticed tonight that my ankle no longer hurts at all.
Well, if we don't run into another horrible place like we did last night (the Internet problem wasn't the only one, but it was the worst part), I will check in again tomorrow night.
