I love thinking on my time in Rogersville, Tennessee as I believe I touched on some of Gods own country.
Our home sat nestled in the woods on three and a half acres, with squirrels, woodpeckers, wild turkey, skunk, deer and ONCE a black bear.
The most enchanting time was night, when all the fireflies appeared and lit up the woods like fairy lights.
The first time I saw them I couldn't believe it!
My fellow Ozzie friend Kerrie-Lyn, had a migraine headache and believed she was seeing lights.

Fall came and I thought all the tree's had mysteriously died.
Can you imagine? never having seen this before, I was mystified.
I don't like the look... its kind of sad.
We flew the American, Rebel and Australian flags..
Ray took me to Memphis, to see Graceland's.
My understanding of Elvis Presley, took on a whole new aspect with that visit.
I came to understand and like him. To me now, he was a caring, confused, manipulated man.
I believe Priscilla has done a great job of preserving his legion.
One of our many visits was to the Devils Tower at Wyoming.
The badlands of South Dakota.
Then winter came..
I was sitting on the computer finishing off my psychology degree on-line from Australia when the first snow fell.
This was another surprise to me...
We do have snow in different area's of Oz. However, I have only been there for a week or so on holiday.
Living with snow was another story.
Because the house was warm inside and not cold, I didn't realise that snow was falling.
When I did, it was the biggest treat, and naturally, the camera came out!
And at night it was magic.

I love you America, and all the people I befriended there.

My Time In America
Labels: Devils Tower, Elvis Presley, Memphis TN, Rogersville Tennessee, Snow, South Dakota, Wyoming.
An Author since 2012 and retired Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our three little dogs. Monty (Australian Terrier,) Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. South Western Sydney Area Health, Queensland Health, LATE OF ROGERSVILLE, TENESSEE and Amedysis Home Health.
