Always Park Near a Tree

Can't find your car? - Always Park near a treeAlways Park Near a Tree


My dad taught me an important lesson when I learned how to drive.  Always park near a tree, or a light pole.  That way, if you loose your car, you won’t have to search every parking spot, only those that are next to trees or light poles.  And, also very important, is to have everyone remember where you parked.  And, if you have ever been to a large sporting event or mega mall and lost your car, you will understand the extreme wisdom of this advice.

My husband and I just got back from a trip to TN to visit with family.  Our son hadn’t seen his mamaw for at least a year.  The trip was great and I actually managed to stick to my diet and lost another pound, so I am happy about that, but the big surprise was the dinner we had in Macon on our way home Saturday night.  It was wonderful and if you are ever in Macon – try the Shahenshah restaurant.  You won’t be disappointed.
