South Carolina….

After we figured out how to get to Moo CHA Cha La, we came to South Carolina.  The state motto is:  “Dum Spiro Spero” — “While I breathe, I hope”.  As thick as the Southern accent is in South Carolina, I’d be curious to hear how they’d pronounce this Latin phrase.  Meanwhile, somewhere in South Carolina on the

we stopped at a rest stop that had this motto:

We used the restrooms, opened our white, styrofoam, tied-with-a-rope cooler to retrieve lunch and I snapped some pictures of what I hoped would be smiling faces.  Afterall, it was still rather early in our 1400 mile trip to New Hampshire.  Here we go:

FINALLY!  I got a smiling face!  (Notice who is still texting.)
