Oh, the places I've been. . . .

I thought this was so cool that I decided to put one on my blog. Most of the states I've visited were seen from the cab of a truck. Some of the states I've actually lived in: Tennessee, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada and Illinois. The rest I've either rode through, or driven through, or just stopped to visit. I couldn't figure a way to put in Canada, but I've been there many times. The Detroit area is just a bridge away from Canada. My hubby and I have picked up munition casings in Red Lion, PA, and delivered those munitions to a military base in Iowa; cabinet frames to Talladega, Alabama; window frames to North Carolina. We've watched the ships being loaded in Norfold, VA while our trailer was being unloaded. In Wisconsin, we watched a truck and trailer pull on to a ramp and be elevated so that the wood chips were dumped out the trailer door. (yes, it was totally upright.) And we drove through a bug storm before we got there. (I think we were going past a cranberry bog!) The most remarkable thing I've seen, was going up a mountain in Virginia, heading towards Norfolk. The mountain almost always has fog near the top so there are tiny lights in the road, set right where the lane lines are. At night, it is the MOST gorgeous sight in the world.

Thanks for stopping by and going with me down memory lane. Back to my stitching. Have a great weekend everyone.
