Right now we are dealing with humidity, spiders and ant invasions! Lol.

The first time I ever left Michigan was a road trip (has yet to ever fly) to Gatlinburg, TN and the Smokey Mountains. Yup, I'd never seen a mountain before! And in NC a waitress asked my 5 year old, "Would you like some cream, Honuh?" and he didn't that she was taking his order for ice cream or what she had called him. He just looked at me, bewildered. :-))

We didn't hijack (this time).  It was artlady's thread...I looked before I started! :)

It always cracks me up here.  You are guaranteed, if you go in at least 3 stores or a restaurant here to be called "Sugar" or "Honey" at least once.

And Luise, a first moutain view and it was the Smokies is an excellent start.  I have seen mountains all over the place in the U.S., and I think the Smokies are some of the most gorgeous.

After some of the things I've been labeled in recent years, 'honey', 'sugar' and 'darling' sound great to me.  Even hard things which may need to be said have to feel kinder begun with those affectionate openings.

A waitress I once worked with was from Texas & called everyone "Hon" or "Sugar." It rubbed off on all of us. Before that it was "Whoa, Dude" in my neck of the woods (beach), lol.
