The rain followed us all the way from Virginia to Chattanooga, Tennessee. The traffic was as relentless as the rain, and we opted to bed down for the night at a brand new Holiday Inn Express in a rough and tumble area of Chatanooga… Choo Choo! The entire hotel smelled like chlorine from the indoor pool, but the bed was super comfy and the shower hot.
Thankfully the rain has stopped, and the traveling easy. In case you’re in the area, the Cracker Barrel in Meridian, Mississippi serves up a fine Chicken n’ Dumplings. We met several very nice “Silver Divas” all decked out in their finest holiday sweaters and shared in some Christmas cheer. Then in the parking lot… when what to my wondering eyes did appear, but a green Jeep Cherokee with Santa at the wheel!!!!!!
Of course there’s much more to come as we celebrate our Christmas in New Orleans, and we hope you’ll come back on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to catch up with us!
With our warmest holiday wishes,
Sharon, the Hero Dog & Santa too!
