It's a laid-back, post-Holler start to our day. Coffee has been consumed and I'm just looking at Story options for the week. I want to take you back to the High Country Bus Festival that Momma Sharon just happened upon last Tuesday when out exploring with R & T.
I gotta tell you that my Camper Mom has a soft spot for VW buses, vans, and transporters. When she sees them, I notice a far away look in her eyes like it takes her back to the 60s that she really digs. She loves the music (especially Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young that she happens to be listening to right now), she loves the whole peace and love vibe it gave off, and she really, really loves the colors of tye-dye. Our friend Geo thinks that I should get a big ole tye-dyed peace symbol to replace my T@B emblem.
Momma Sharon switches out our little garden flags daily and here's one that we particularly love . . .
As they were all cruising along in the Gator getting the Twin Rivers tour last Tuesday, she kept spying tye-dyed stuff everywhere. It was kinda hard to snap photos from that hopping-all-over-the-road ATV, but she did get a few good ones.
Man oh man, that tye-dye was just too groovy! Her excitement shot right off the charts when they pulled up to Tyes & Dyes By Michelle. It was love at first sight and she was off the Gator before it hardly came to a stop!
Michelle is from Jacksonville, NC and travels the festival circuit to sell her creations. Can you guess which one drew Mom like a magnet! Yep, that big blue one with the lime green and rainbow of colors. Uncle Rob had to spot her the money because hers was locked up in Levi. It was taken down and folded up with love. Michelle gave us her business card and gave Momma Sharon a big hug. Nirvana!
When my Camper Mom got back to the campground I knew something was up because of that $#!%-eating grin on her face. Lookie, lookie what she brought me . . .
This won't be where we will hang it when we camp, but it does look groovy doesn't it?! "Our house is a very, very, very fine house…la, la, la, la, la." I'll hum that CSNY tune for awhile and invite you back for another Story tomorrow. Until then, always remember . . .
"Peace, Love, & Groovy Camping"
