Tish is a great idea since people can become complacent even in their own hometown.

Tish~ Who doesn't want to be a Tourism Ambassador for their own town? This is a great way to get re-acquainted with all your town has to offer. 

(BTW, welcome back! I'm grinning from ear to ear!)

CA to share some of hers?  Between her and Karen Baker, those photos of me looking like a beached whale hit Facebook before I could stuff another thing in my mouth.  But that wasn't you BL, it was them.

What a very awesome idea!  Funny how we don't get around to seeing our local attractions until a friend or relative comes to visit. Wish this was a national campaign!
