We commented about John Denver's "Country Roads" as we were enjoying the fall colors last week on our way to Greensboro, NC to visit family---Laura and Bob. On the way we drove the country roads and hiked in New River Gorge National Park.

We spent a night at the White Horse B&B in Fayetteville, WV. We felt like we were staying in a honeymoon suite. John snapped some photos. What a wonderful place to stay if you're out that way. We walked the town in the evening and stopped by a diner for a nice hearty meal.

We had a perfect time with Laura and Bob---good conversation and food and sightseeing. Also an absolutely wonderful time at Triad Stage for the unforgettable musical, "Beautiful Star: An Appalachian Nativity." This is a series of Bible stories reenacted in modern mountain music and dialect--absolutely great acting, and sold-out performances between now and Christmas. That alone would have been worth the trip to Greensboro.

On the way down and back on the 13-hour trip, we listened to books on CD: The Quilter's Legacy and the Mermaid Chair, and here and there I managed to get some good writing done on the book---due next month! Life is just too good.
