Good Morning,

And welcome to TRUE COLOURS THURSDAY and today's color is MAROON. Our host for this event is Blue and should you wish to play along, go over to her blog and inform her and your are in - it's that easy. Next week's color is LEMON.

When Mom and Dad were away this past weekend,
they went to the little town of Dillsboro, NC
for lunch on Sunday.
While the
y were there,
the maroon Great Smoky Mountain Railroad train
came through - now they are thinking
about a trip up there to ride the train
this fall when the leaves are at their peak.

Most of you know that Virginia Tech
is right down the road from us.
The maroon and orange Hokie bird is their mascot.
Their head football coach,
Frank Beamer is from our county.

When Mom was a little girl (spoiled rotten)
her Dad didn't want her to have to walk
to the school bus
since our drive way is .6 mile long.
We know you Europeans are laughing at this.
But to tell the truth,
it's uphill all the way.
So he got our Granny a
1949 Maroon Dodge Coupe
to haul Mom back and forth to the bus.
That car took them on a lot of adventures.
This is not the car he got for them,
but it is the same style.

Have a fabulous Thursday and enjoy our colorful world,


Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

PS - Our Mom has always thought
she would like to have
a pair of dark red (maroon) cowboy boots - hehe!!
