    I just returned from Marshall's and OH MY!!! What a place! I only spent between $200 an $250 but the back of my jeep is full! I'm going to have to go to Walmart and get a luggage carrier for the top of the jeep to get it all home. We're going to Blanchard Caverns and JoJo's Wharf restaurant tomorrow, going to go see Bandit here in a few minutes. We bought some treats for Bandit too.

    Your very welcome! I'm so glad you are having a good time and wasn't disappointed with my suggestions! Can't wait to see what you found at Marshalls. Give Bandit a hug for me. He's a precious doggy. Janell and Bandit are expecting you guys. :thumbup:

    Isn't it thrilling to walk in there! I live about 2 hours away from Marshall's. My guild has car trips there but I prefer to go alone to browse all day if I want, not have someone say Oh, I have to be back to cook Maynard his dinner so we have to leave by 2.

    I thought that's what they made crock pots and tv dinners for. I'd take my own car and just say, "Anyone riding with me is in it for the long haul, I'll probably all day so plan accordingly."
    I had a friend that used to ride with me to BOM's and that's what I told her. One day she said, "I have to go straight home today, my husband invited his son and family over today." I turned the car around right then and took her home. I told her to drive herself because I had grocery shopping and other shopping to do.
    I've been so busy I haven't taken many pix. :oops: But I'll try to take some of the fabric when I get home.
    Bandit had gone home for the day right before we got there so we'll try again tomorrow. We hit a lot of the touristy shops downtown and had browsing in the 90+ degree weather. Feels good to be back in air conditioning.

    The scenery is BEAUTIFUL here, the people are very friendly, the prices aren't too bad for a tourist area, the cabin is wonderfully comfortable and it's pretty easy to find your way around.

    Anyone is welcome to ride with me too, but they know up front I have my own schedule, that's why I'm driving myself. I'll tell DH I'll meet you there and don't have to put up with his gotta get there as fast as possible and be back as soon as possible. We go about everywhere together in separate vehicles.

    Of course, but not for awhile. That was okay, when I quit letting her use me she quit associating with me. BUT, now my rulers don't elope with my quilting books and fabric doesn't come up missing. Some friendships just aren't worth the effort.

    Oh, purplemem, plan a trip. Get up really early and go. Plan to spend the night if possible then you'll have more time to shop.
    I've already started planning another trip next year.

Not only do your quirky pictures and off the wall sense of humor keep me laughing on even my blackest days, but without you I'd never known about Marshall's and Pinewood Cabins. Keep the pix and the info coming. We're going to Blanchard Caverns and JoJo's Wharf restaurant tomorrow, going to go see Bandit here in a few minutes. (All other things you've told me about) We bought some treats for Bandit too.

    It sounds like you had the trip of a lifetime! It's a 6 hour trip from here but from everything that I've heard about it, it would be well worth it! Lucky You! I can't wait to see your pictures!
