We’ve always heard the axiom, “be careful what you wish for.” Such is the case and predicament that I’m looking at now. I learned many things from our maiden voyage as members of the fulltime RV community and will extrapolate on them as time goes on. One of those tenets is ‘never go South in the summer’. Now that we’re here in the hinterlands of Pennsylvania I find myself yearning for just some of those things that I left. And one of them is “sweet” tea. Now I’m sure there areliterally thousands of you that sweeten your tea with sugar, Splenda, or some other artificial sweetener that suits your needs. However, there is nothing quite like the taste of original southern sweet tea and I find myself missing that dearly. I’ve searched a myriad of fast food places and resturants in the past week up here and I thought MacDonalds may have come close but still something is missing. Until I just happened to drive through a Wendys as I needed and quick ice cream fix the other day on the way to my doctors appointment. Now they have found the secret. So, if you’re in search of a great facsimile of southern ‘sweet tea’, then you have to visit your local Wendys.And not to stop there with the sweet life, our daughter Erin has graced us with her prescence as she is on a three week hiatus from her teaching stint. If you’re not aware by now, down in Raleigh, schools operate on a year-round basis due to the fact there are not enough schools to keep up with the influx of new students. So every nine weeks she gets a three week mini vacation. How sweet of her to make an eight hour drive to visit with mom and dad. They say she is her ‘father’s’ daughter but you tell me…..is there a similarity with her mom or not. Now this is sweet.
