We made it to Montgomery, AL last night. Hubby was a very sweet man and went out and got Chinese Food so it was there when we got there. He has a cute 2 bedroom apartment in a gate complex with lots of walking paths and lakes. Molly was soooo happy to see us.
Can't you tell from looking at this picture?
This was actually taken this morning before we left. Shay, Hubby and I went out to Cracker Barrel for breakfast and then Shay and I hit the road. I told Shay yesterday that I always wanted to take a trip where we stopped at each state line and got a picture of the Welcome to ______ sign. Well, we missed Alabama yesterday but we got them all today.
First came Tennessee.
Next state was Kentucky. We sure did notice a difference from Tennessee with the tree lined rolling hills and then Kentucky with some flat lands.
And finally we are in Illinois.
We are staying at the Scott Inn on Scott AFB, IL. Pretty nice for $39.00.Only problem is the tv remote takes AAA batteries and they are out at the front desk. This is the old gate. It is lit up and looks very pretty at night.
Lastly, I leave you with a couple of other random shots from this morning. Here is Shay and the doggies. She won't see them for awhile.
And this is Shay and Hubby in front of his fireplace. Notice the picture of Brutus sitting there? We know who is who in his world don't we.
Tomorrow morning we will get up and get going. We need to stop here before we get out of town and they don't open until 10am and they are about 45 minutes from the lodging but on the way.
Off to bed. More to come tomorrow night.
