What do girlfriends do when visiting Waynesville and their husbands are in classes all day for 4 days? They go shopping! The former neighbors have remained friends for years and reunited here at Oak Hill. Sandy and Pam set out the first morning to hit the shops in Downtown Waynesville. We didn't see them again until after 5PM when their husbands returned. We usually chat with our guests each morning after breakfast to see if we can help them with their plans for the day, so the following morning we inquired about their plans for the day and they said they were going shopping downtown. With jaws dropping, I asked, "Didn't you shop downtown all day yesterday?" Their reply was, "We only made it down one side of the street!"
The same pattern repeated each day. The girls would show up at Oak Hill and hurriedly "repacked" their car so it wouldn't be obvious to the guys just how much they had purchased. Somehow they found new treasures each day and never left Waynesville. It must not have been a huge surprise to Larry and Jim when it took them 20 minutes to get their luggage into the vehicles at check out...just lots of giggles and kidding. We were sure to thank them for supporting the economy here in Haywood County!
