Vacation: Day 3

We woke to a new attitude!… kch0055
We were going shopping!… k15902140
What better way to forget the last few days of mishaps!
We were all going…
Carolyn, Jeanette, Vera , Jack, Bobby and I…
The Tanger Five Oaks Outlet was our destination…  up in Pigeon Forgetanger-logo

Vera wanting new logo… and the rest just browsing…
We stopped at a McDonald’s  200px-McDonald's_Golden_Arches_svg for breakfast…
Then off to the outlet stores!…
We wandered in Kirkland’s… a Kitchen Store… 200px-Izod_logo_black… Candy Store (Fudge)  k3250940  … and many more…
It was fairly crowded… Jack opting to wait on the benches for the rest of us… Everyone talks when on vacation… He had several other gentlemen waiting for wives!… Sharing
We wondered if these purchases would fit when we left at the end of the week… we were already a little cramped for space

We were getting hungry and decided to eat at Arby’s Arby's_logo … Can you tell we were budgeting our money… We still had to go to Gatlinburg to shop and look… Casino k15507396White Water Rafting… and whatever else hit our fancy!…
We were expecting a couple of friends that afternoon and had planned a cookout…
This cabin had it all like I said… Grill right off the deck…
When Janice and David arrived the “girls”… decided to try out the pool…

it was in walking distance… while the guys relaxed and talked around the TV…
We got back to the cabin… and started preparing dinner…We all pitched in!…
Cucumber, tomato, onion salad with Italian Dressing k10430074… Sliced Red Potatoes/butter/onion on the grill… baked beans… and surprise to me… Bobby decided to grill the hamburgers/sausages/hot dogs c0026087… Just saying…

He is usually NOT the griller!…
Before long Vera stepped in with him… and together they pulled off some great food!… Never underestimate your husband coming up with new talents!…

especially with Vera handing him a small bottle of wine to keep him cool!… winefavorbottles
Janice and David had brought watermelon, tomatoes, oranges from Florida k12991849 … and Homemade Apple Butter for breakfast during the week… Cake for dessert if anyone wanted it… k5303081

The “girls” again decided to go to downtown Gatlinburg to look around… Me driving with four others in the car…

We parked and started walking… Jeanette decides to sing and do a little jig… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We were so surprised at her antics… Fun was in the air… until she almost fell on the uneven bricks… and started breathing funny…

I never knew she had an inhaler… but, it was back in the room… PDB03005

She decided to sit and rest awhile and we browsed a few stores…

We ended up at the Moonshine Still…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA … where a Bluegrass band was playing… Moonshine tasting was free… and people were showing off their dancing skills as we found rocking chairs to sit in and watch… It was such a festive atmosphere!… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Vera, Janice and I went for the car and was to pick up Jeanette and Carolyn along the street…

This is when the police pulls up beside me and tells me to get my headlights on…

Carolyn’s car again… Not use to where everything was… but, finally got the lights on with pushing a few buttons!…

On the way back to the cabin… I was trying to roll up the windows in the front but, accidentally rolled up the back ones catching Carolyn’s fingers/hand in the window… I won’t go into the  “expletives” used at this point… but, it was quite the scene for a few minutes… as I missed our turn and had to return a block later…

I was never so glad to be back at the cabin!… As we all gathered on the deck… We laughed so hard we almost cried! k5321911… A great release for all!… each person was funnier than the last!…

We all slept hard that night… as the rain returned to hit the metal roof!
