Stayed the night (Tuesday?) at El Rancho H/Motel on Old Route 66. All the room doors are made to look like dressing rooms for bygone stars&starlettes of the silver screen. The full moon cometh as we howl our way home.

We left Savannah and made our way to Spartanburg, South Carolina, the place where we spent our first couple of years of life.  Our Aunt Mary Ada and Uncle Gary were the kindest people in the world and welcomed us into their amazing home for a night.  It was a treat to be surrounded by our Aunt, a concert violinist and gracious host, our Uncle, a comedian/writer/radio personality/artist and their delightful friend Magoo the opera singer/actor/hilariousman.  We would have both preferred to have spent a good month in their sweet company, but alas we had to squeeze a delicious few home cooked meals, a tour of our grand family home, Fosters’ Tavern, and as many jokes and laughs as possible into a shameful 24 hours.  Brevity of visit notwithstanding, we will forever be grateful to our sweet family for hosting us, being so hospitable, and for making us laugh harder and longer than we have in some time.

in one sitting we said our goodbyes to south carolina, hello/goodbyes to north carolina and hello to tennessee.  hugging the cliff-lined curves of the i-40 along north carolina’s blue ridge mountains at sundown was enormously enjoyable.  enormously.
