Tangled Up in God's Beard
The Watsons wanted to go to Birmingham but Momma wanted to stop and dad kept going, so they were in the dark, scary mountains..... and they focused on the positive:)
We had just gotten to the Ohio rest stop, the Ohio rest stop was really cool! Momma then took her "Watsons go to Birmingham 1963" book out and told us what to eat.
After we ate and used the restroom, we went back to the road. Minutes later I went to sleep. What woke me up was that I felt something wet in my pants, starting to go down my leg. "Ewww!" it was Joey drooling all over me.
Momma still hadn't noticed that dad was trying to go to Alabama straight through, nonstop. But, we still stopped at some more Ohio-style rest stops.
The next time I woke up we were at the Tennessee rest stop. It was really dark. We were at the Appalachia mountains.
After we relaxed, Dad drove back out on I-75 and instead of thinking about how dark it was we were thinking about the positive.
The air felt so good that we even put our hand out the window and "felt" the air. "I think we've got our fingers in God's beard and as we drive along we're tickling him," Dad said. This was the best part of the trip.
