Saying Goodbye

Goodbye Nashville and your sweet refrains in country music, goodbye Grand Ole Opry, CMA Fest and Fan Fair, Music Row, Country Music Hall of Fame, Ryman Auditorium, Belle Meade Mansion, Tennessee State Capitol, Percy Priest Lake, Forts Nashborough and Negley. Goodbye Natchez Trace Parkway, Opryland, RCA Studio B, President Andrew Jackson's Home, The Hermitage and riverboat dinner cruise.

So long also to beautiful middle Tennessee, including historic Franklin with the memories of such an famous Civil War Battle, the Carter House, the home of President James K. Polk, George Dickel and Jack Daniel's Distilleries and Tennessee Walking Horses,

Farewell to nearby Huntsville Space and Rocket Center and Redstone Arsenal to the south, the Great Smoky Mountains to the east, Elvis' Graceland and Memphis Jazz to the west and Kentucky's Blue Grass and Derby to the North.

I never do blogging justice to this beautiful, entertaining part of our great country that Wayne and I called "home" for a good part of our lives.  We've enjoyed spending these few weeks here.  There is so much to do. So much to see.  Such nice, friendly people, pleasant weather and rolling hills.

Goodbye friends. Goodbye family, including the beautiful set of twins and my dear sweet brother whose health is, I pray, on the mend. 

We're off to find cooler days north of here. 


  1. We spent some time in that area and we didn't even put a dent in my list of things to do. I really do hope we can get back there again before too long.

  2. We really want to drive the Natchez Trace Parkway! And you listed some that we have not thought of! Thanks much.
