Every single year that Momma Sharon and I host the Blue Ridge Rally, there are a couple of things that always surprise us. The first is the distance that some of my camping buddies will travel to join us at the rally. This year, my friend Ellis Island accompanied by Sandy and Joe, traveled all the way from Iowa! The second thing that always surprises me are all the neat little happies that Blue Ridgers give us.
Momma Sharon always writes them down in her notebook and makes a point of sending out little thank you notes from the both of us. This year we got three cash donations to help cover our expenses and another one to purchase wood for our evening campfires! We were blown away by that!!
Sometimes the happies are just plain fun like these . . .

|Bags of fresh roasted coffee beans, bags of ground coffee, and a small coffee grinder!|
|YoYo Monkey who is the perfect lime green & blue and loves to hang around with us!!|
I'll tell you about a few more if you drop tomorrow for another Short Splash Story. I hope your week is off to a good start and always remember . . .
"Peace, Love & Camping"
