She will have the pleasure of gazing upon me on Tuesday night. Tonight we are headed to the grand ol Opry to see 8 people/groups but I do not recall the names of all of them. I think Claire Bowen is one, she is the actor/singer that plays Scarlett on the series Nashville. Ricky Scaggs, (if your old enough to remember him) and the Gaitlin Brothers. I do not care for the "root Beers" My wife and DIL love them. They are too sweet for me. We stopped at a distillery today, I bought some Moonshine for the kids as Christmas gifts..... Speaking of Xmas gifts. Coffee thans for the Ralphie picture. We are leaving here in about an hour to go "bar hopping" and try and find a new upcoming singer songwriter. Until 9:30 when the Opry starts. BTW in case you did not guess it, we are huge Country Music people. My brother wants me to get him a "good" banjo while I am here. NOT gonna happen. If some one gets something like that it would be me. I have never tried to play a banjo but I bet they would be fun. And if I drank enough might even sound passable. I am feeling bad though, I have no idea how my birds are and I know my dogs are upset at me being locked in a kennel. We went to the Jefferson Davis memorial in Fairview Ky today. Impressive structure. It is built next to where he was born. We decided to visit it incase it is removed. The monument itself is history with the type of construction and stoppage of work for WW1. This is not an endorsement of Jefferson Davis and his views on slavery, it was just us looking at a piece of history whether it is considered good or bad. We visited a lock and dam from the TVA project. WOW how huge those earthen dams are. BTW the Tennessee river is WAY wider than the Mississippi in Elk River. Look up the Monument on Wiki, Jefferson davis monument Fairview KY. It is interesting.. The other pictures are the river at the lock and dam, I thought I would spare you the dead fish picture. BUT Cyrus you would be impressed.
