In the next 17 hours I will be driving a total of 10 hours I will be making two round trips to The Hartsfield Jackson Airport in Atlanta to take a friend to the airport on her way to her home in Detroit and welcoming my mother-in-law to Georgia after her flight from Spokane Washington. In addition I will be making 2 round trips to Macon to see my dentist for a total drive time of 4 hours. Most of my drive time will be spent on Interstate 75.
While driving south I will see a great many snow birds coming from exotic places like Illinois, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Ontario Canada and more.
The snow birds rarely stop in Georgia except for gas, food and pecans as they are travelers on their way to many different destinations in Florida. When I drive north 2/3 of the travelers on Hwy 75 have Florida license plates. I am not real sure where Florida travelers are going there are so many of them seeming to be fleeing Florida but they always come back or so I am told. They like the snow birds rarely stop in Georgia except for gas, food and pecans.
In the airport I will see all kinds of travelers from all over the world. Some will be wearing uniforms, some will be young mothers, some will be elderly,some will be seasoned travelers, some will be overly happy travelers on their way to watch their college football team play in it's first football bowl in ten years. (In Spokane & New Mexico any way) (GO COUGS!), some will be first time travelers, while others will be on a business trip. Every traveler in every airplane, every bus, and every car has a story.
Tis the season to travel. The challenge for Thursday December 19,2013 is to create a post about travelers. Didn't Ray Bradbury have something to say about travelers?
This challenge is open to serious or silly responses. I believe this challenge should test your creativity. This Challenge is meant to be fun. Next week's challenge is meant to be silly to help relieve some of the Season's stress.
All genres are encouraged including but not limited to poetry and verse.
The submissions for Gather Writing Essential continue to be outstanding. Keeping things simple with few rules still seems to be working quite well so we are continuing to stay with just a few rules.
The first rule to remember is to include the words "travelers" 12/19/2013" somewhere in the title. A second rule is to be sure to tag it with Thurs WE, 12/19/13, travelers.
I am continuing to ignore the 3 post limit once again but still reserve the right to the right to not approve posts if necessary because of too many postings but am not expecting to have to do that very much. Keep in mind to limit past posts to just a few that have already been posted in months and years gone by.
