on the road again!

Ladies {echo...ladies} & Gentlemen {gentlemen}...
By Unanimous Decision {decision}...
vintagesusie {vintagesusie} will be DRIVING {driving}
to TEXAS {Texas}!
Loud roar of applause, hats flying in the air, pats on the back and a few "atta boy's" thrown in for good measure. That's right friends, you heard it here 1st...I will be dusting off the old jalopy & headin east lookin for JUNK!!!

I want to THANK YOU all for your fabulous advice! You are all the bestest bloggy friends anyone could ever have!! Yes, it would be better if I had a pal to come along...but it looks like it will just be me & Willie 'On the Road Again'!

So, as long as I don't run into this...

or run out of this...

I should be one of the lucky ones who get to go to this!!! That's right, the line of Junker's on their way to...Warrenton, Round Top, Marburger, The Junk Gypsy's Prom, Garden Antiques Blog Party & all pastures, haylofts, barns & fields in between.

I've got my maps ready, my bags packed {well, not really} & I'm beyond eager to leave. {is leavin 10 days before check-in tooo early?}
I must tell y'all, the words that really made my mind up were...
Drive Baby, Drive!!!

XOXO

Whoop whoop! I'm glad you finally decided! I know you'll have a grand time and find lots of treasures.

Ten days will afford several stops along the way for sightseeing, potty breaks, and junk shops. I say go for it!

Oh, you're so lucky. I wish you could swing up to Kansas and pick me up.

You are one brave and adventurous girlie! I had a great solution but didn't think you'd want to drive to Nebraska to pick me up.

Drive safe and I'll be waiting not so patiently to see what you bring home!

Good for you!! You'll do fine. I remember going on a long antiquing trip by myself for the first time...in my forties. I had driven from Texas to Kansas and stayed with relatives then struck out antiquing my way to Detroit to a friend's. I'd never stayed in hotels by myself. It went fine...I had a great time and felt like a big girl.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

The mornings (can) will be a little chilly! But, remember, you will be in Texas, and we have every kind of weather ~ all in one day!!
