About Me

When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!

P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).

I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.

The Grandkiddies and Dinner at Hillbilly Hotdogs

Spent Thursday night and Friday night at Heather's.  Alex grilled us all beef tenderloin steaks on the grill which were wonderful!!  Friday, we took Sophia to her ballet school where they are "rehearsing" for a recital in June.  One can only say "good luck" to the two teachers!  Didn't see much ballet, but the little girls sure were cute!

Johnny and I then drove home Saturday after stopping for the obligatory "road trip Krispy Kreme donuts".  If I get on the road in the morning, there has to be a Kirspy Kreme involved!  It was a very easy trip and relatively fast, but by the time we got home and got the car unloaded and partially unpacked, I was so tired I could hardly see straight.  However, a walk to Hillbilly Hotdogs for "dinner" perked me up.  Then finished unpacking and opened my mail and discovered I had received my gold card from Starbucks!!  Big excitement...so then we went to Starbucks for a chocolate covered graham cracker and tea for me.  Then back home for jammies and an early night.

No text with these pictures (well, maybe a little...) - they're fairly self-explanatory.  The girl is Sophia, the boy is Johnny and the strange place is Hillbilly Hotdogs. :)

We're sitting in a bathtub, by the way...

As you can see, ambiance is everything at Hillbilly Hotdogs.

Johnny was enthralled with the picture of the sad guy who has done his best to finish a "Homewrecker" which is, I think, about a 2 pound hotdog with everything on it - sauce, slaw, grilled peppers and onions, mustard, tomatoes, nacho cheese and grated cheddar, and I think that's about it.

So, y'all come, y'hear?!

A little HBHD does the body (or maybe just the soul?) good, even if Jamie Oliver disagrees ;)

Ah, Hillbilly Hotdogs...you ought to post a link to their website so everyone can have the joy of hearing the Hillbilly Hotdog song :)

Great idea, January although I went to their site and couldn't find their song anywhere. But the address is www.hillbillyhotdogs.com (strangely enough...) and, if nothing else, you will see more types of hotdog combinations on their menu than probably anywhere else in the world!
