catnipoflife‘s sister site Awakenings began a journey in January across the United States focusing each month on the state(s) that was admitted to the union during that month. Now six months into the year 23 states have been visited. Some of these have been Scooped onto catnip but not all. What is the idea behind this journey you might be wondering?
America. The United States. The United States of America. The USA. How much do you know about our nation’s states or better still, what do you know about the state in which you live? Do you know which state(s) have a State Cat? What about the one with a State Dinosaur along with a State Cat? Which state(s) claims the Spirit of the Ladybug as its state insect? Do you know which state is nicknamed after its Busy Buzzin’ Bees? This next one surely you know…the state famous for The Shag and Shad Roe?
The first state featured @Awakenings Georgia On My Mind leaves no room for questions as to which state hosted the first visit. Within that post is a special poem for Georgia, which set the stage for each state that follows. The challenge has been and continues to be not so much the research for each state but creating the special poetry attributable to the nature of each one. With that being said stay tuned for the next two Scoops of two states visited today…Kentucky and Tennessee.
Which of these boasts times when ‘Mountain Music harbored life in song’?
