today marks a full week that we have been here...and the time really has slipped away. ever look at your alarm clock before you go to sleep, notice the time...roll over and back again to see that the time has magically changed 8 hours during the motion of rolling over? that is what it feels like at this moment. james, has introduced us to the game of BANANAGRAMS...if you have played it, you know how awesome it is...if that shit. well, we came up with a kickass idea to make it life size (we call it SAVANNAGRAMS) and play it in the park. for tomorrow, since james works for SCAD (google it) there is a thing called model in the park. we will do the modeling thing for a few and then will bust out ... read more

so i walk into this liquor store to buy some cheap ass beer (cause that's what one buys when on a long journey with a tight budget) and i see a sign that says "Golden Dollar Coins Not Accepted"...and of course, i ask why...the man behind the counter says "It doesn't say In God We Trust"...This, is another sign of reminding me, that i am in the south. Also, from saturday morning at 12 until monday morning at 7...except at a bar or restaruant, you can't go buy alcohol....some crazy shit. we stayed, i believe it to be 5 days with goose and friends and then rolled out to where we are now, savannah, a dude name james' house we are becoming official fans of couch surfing and definately recommend it to others. savannah is ... read more

We are home at last. And at peace. I hope you have enjoyed our trip. We did. Now it is 35 years later and Patty and Dianne will summarize for you what they remember so well about this trip. That's it for Nell and Yours Truly. Love you all, Lamar. Patty's comments: First, I want to thank our brother, Tommy, for assisting us on this project. It was a labor of love. It has been fun looking back at this wonderful trip we made with Mother and Daddy 35 years ago . . It was one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done. I have to admit, Dianne and I acted like teenagers some of the time ...but, Ma and Daddy didn't seem to mind too much. Well, except for the time that Dianne and ... read more

I watched last summer when Tommy and Jackie flew to Europe and picked up their new car. Each day he wrote a diary entry (Nell says it is a blog but I don't know what she is talking about). Well, I taught Tommy everything he knows about writing. Just because I never did like those darn computers does not mean I can't beat him at writing diaries. So, Nell, Patty and Dianne and I will be sending you a daily diary (okay, blog) of our trip to Europe. We had just as much fun as Tommy and Jackie did. I made Dianne and Patty write their comments every night. Nell and I took photos and then added comments to them. Now don't be sending me any messages asking me how I am doing this. I have ... read more
