My Journey: Sept.30, 2006 posting from Virginia

My Grandson and my daughter-n-law !!
I took a train from Slidell ,Louisiana to Va. to visit my son and my daughter-in-law and my grandson. Today is my son's birthday. And I really needed a break from the devestation at home. I caught a train in Slidell, La. on Thursday morning, the 28th, and got off in Manassas, Va. on Friday morning. I rented a car from there and came here to Stephens City. My son had no idea I was coming at all !!! I really pulled a good one over on him. When he came home from work I was sitting on the sofa when he walked in the door !! I was cooking some spaghetti and had just gotten me a glass of ice tea and sat down. Their cat jumped up and knocked my glass over and that was the same time my son opened the door !! We were both so Happy tho to see each other. It sure is nice seeing these mountains again. The trees are starting to change color. I'm in the area of Shendoah River & valley & the Blue Ridge mountains !! It's beautiful here!! I lived in Front Royal when my son was only 1 or around that age. I wish I could move back here! Maybe one day. When I get home I'll post some pictures that I've taken here. I'm staying until Friday , the 6th of Oct.. I'll be taking the train home, getting in Slidell Saturday. It was a neat trip. It was the first time I rode a train. I slept alot of the way , I hadn't had much sleep before I left home. I was so excited about the trip and getting things together. I'll write more when I can............
