Ants in Mah Pants

Note: New Post on BACK Porch"Work on the Roam"

Hey ya'll.... I shure did miss ever'body durin' my Lenten hiatus ... but I did notice ya'll made out jes' fine wif'out Aunty B lookin' over ya shoulders.

I done had mah fill now of deviled eggs and chocolate bunnies....but mercy! What a Spring we is havin'! We even had a lost duck lay her eggs at the end of the rose bed in a clump of ferns! Imagine the surprise of Easter Egg hiders when t hey found those eggs in the very sot they though to hide some eggs!

The flowers is too gorgeous to describe, the sky so blue, grass green enough ter hurt yore eyes..
But I still is hearin' the call.

Ya know? That tug at the heart , that yearnin' in the bones to be on the move....

I'se always content to git home afterwards, but I knows when I'se wastin' effort to resist--I gotta git ter roamin' here now here in a few weeks--got the bug, ants in mah knickers.... "I'm a-leavin' on a jet plane" but I does know when I'll be back again...

So tis here is what I'se wonderin': Whar does ya'll wanna go? If ya had ONE surprise trip to take this year, whar' would ya go?

Dear Aunty-
If I could have one surprise trip-that I couldn't make otherwise, I'd head to the Phillipines.
But heavens- I'd do just about anything to avoid more than 12 hours on a plane...so I might have to stop over in Europe first.
Been to China, and South Africa, but not Europe.

And, By the way...I missed you :)
Good to see you here again~

I don't have any surprise trips coming, but I AM GOING TO JAMAICA IN NOV...on my sister's honeymoon (we're in our 40's...a good thing, not whacked)...

Me personally though...I have some strange places I'd like to land if'un a surprise came up...

Egypt - Pyramids
Jerusaleum - Holy Land
Russia - Kremlin
#1 - GREECE - Want one of those romantic Greek vacations!
Paris, Rome, and even though I've heard it's over-rated...would like to float through Venice...

oh heck, nothing is wrong with here.
it's beautiful here in this foothill/mountain county i live. it was beautiful where i lived in Germany. but, i've always had a hankerin' to just pack up and go. that wanderlust started early when i was in my teens ..

Hey AB, nice to see you back. Thanks for visting the roost too.

Love those pictures.

I have a similar itch - been daydreaming about Paris, London, Brussels, or a beach in Spain, or a cottage in Mendicino on the northern California coast, or almost anywhere - i just wanna go.

but i have to cool my jets i think until december, when i head out to thailand for christmas and new year.

then again ... a short jaunt might call me away as soon as the dang semester is over.

italy! excellent - i can hardly wait til you go and come back with traveler's tales and pictures to post. when ya leavin? hurry up and go, would ya? yeah!

happy trails!
