A Weekend Trip to Nashville
We had a long drive to Nashville yesterday. We had gotten everything ready to go the night before, so were able to make a pretty quick get away. After a stop at McDonald’s drive-thru for a BIG coffee and breakfast, we were on our way.
Traffic was very light that early and picked up only slightly until we got past Bristol, Tennessee. We were lucky to miss rush hour traffic in Roanoke, Knoxville, and Nashville (although it was just starting in Nashville). Every time we come here, we are reminded of why we like being away so much. Traffic here is just horrible.
Peanut came with us. He’s a good traveler, but, like Gene and I, he was very tired of being in the truck all day. Now, he has a whole house to explore. That, of course, makes me a nervous wreck. I know how he loves to push stuff off onto the floor.
This afternoon and evening we’ll spend with Jack, Ansley, and Kayley. We’re certainly looking forward to that.
We also hope to get a look around at some of the flood damage. Fortunately, none of our family sustained any major damage with the exception of my cousin, whose lower level in her townhouse was completely destroyed.
That’s it for now; will try to post again this evening.
