After a really fun and rather lucrative show last night in Horse Shoe (with the most delicious pumpkin cheesecake ever!!!) I had my final evening with Lynne and her family. Left this morning with a piece of apple pie for Tennessee! First time ever in the state. Stopped in Gatlinburg for what I thought would be an afternoon adventure, but turned more into a short rest stop. Lots of old southern folk who could tell instantly that I wasn't from these parts. A lot of tacky art, much of which was Christmas themed, and not really anywhere to walk around. Ended up getting some yummy free popcorn and apples, though, and stayed for a couple tunes from the band featured to your right. Then headed west for Knoxville!!!
Had one of my first biddy mishaps of the trip trying to connect with my air B and B host and ended up getting a sweet hotel room right in town (Thanks Mom!!!!!) While thinking of my predicament, was helpful to refer back to the movie, thinking to myself ***SPOILER ALLERT***** (Scroll down to read) Am meeting up with my friend Ivana from High School in Nashville tomorrow and we will make the rest of our way together. Is nice to have some time to myself tonight, and am also looking forward to having company (and safety in numbers :)
