March 21- Spring has sprung officially
Today we drove from Pensacola Fl. to Plains Ga. We got a late start because KC had been ill and unable to keep food down. After it seemed he had kept down his morning food and seemed more active, we then left for our two day trip in our Honda Fit. By the time we arrived in Plains many of the Carter sites were closed, but we were able to see the museum located in the high school Jimmy Carter attended. All in all it was a good trip. Even though we could only see the buildings from the outside, we saw his boyhood farm/home, his church and current home where he lives. The thirty-ninth president of our country is still such a prominent political figure today and I enjoyed seeing the area that has been home to him for all of his life. The gas station which his brother Billy owned is closed now and looks like something straight out of the fifties era. We spent the night in Americus after driving around the Habitat for Humanity compound and viewing the models of different homes there that they are building around the world.
