For the past several years whenever there’s a holiday to celebrate, we end up driving to Roanoke Rapids, NC. We’re not sure why or when the tradition started, but it seems that someone says, “Hey, want to drive to Roanoke Rapids?” And then we go. This isn’t a fancy town, actually it’s not even a very nice town. Like I wouldn’t want to walk there after dark. For you Oregonians, it reminds me of Albany, about 20 years ago. But with scary people.
Yesterday we were trying to find something festive to do, and sure enough, Roanoke Rapids was our choice.
