Re­lax­ing time

James Perry said he just wanted to have a lit­tle va­ca­tion and get some re­lax­ing time. Yes, he said he needed some baby-free time, a few hours away from his chil­dren and, of course, grand­chil­dren. The weather has been so funny in the area with the rain, winds and cold tem­per­a­tures. And it is not win­ter yet. So, Jimmy de­cided to take a trip down to North Carolina. He in­vited his mother, Eve­lyn Perry, to go with him. He also called his aunt, Priscilla Jones, and said, “pack your suit­case and go with me and your sis­ter, Eve­lyn, for a few days” vis­it­ing Leonard Cross, my un­cle and Eve­lyn’s brother, who lives in Wen­dell, N.C. Leonard took us to the Farm­ers Mar­ket in Raleigh, N.C.,where we en­joyed some very good food. We also vis­ited sev­eral shop­ping cen­ters where we en­joyed shop­ping es­pe­cially for items that we had not seen in our home- town, Prince Ge­orge’s County. Leonard, who at­tends Young Mis­sion­ary Church, said he has re­ally en­joyed his 30 years liv­ing in North Carolina. He baked his fa­vorite cake, Bet­ter Than Any­thing, which we all en­joyed as we watched movies on the TV screen. Jimmy said that driv­ing on this trip was ex­cel­lent. Traf­fic moved along good and the weather was great. And, most of all, gas was cheaper as we trav­elled south. All three of us en­joyed this trip and look for­ward to go­ing down the high­way again.
