Tennessee Travelers

We are home...again! Yep the wandering duo has returned from our Tennessee tour. Hubby had meetings in Lebanon, TN over the weekend and we extended our visit to include visits with longtime friends in Franklin and Lewisburg, as well as seeing family in Chattanooga.

Living in Texas surely makes you appreciate four seasons. Although Tennessee is in a major drought right now, there are small patches of glorious leaf turnings to be seen. The highways,
I-40 and I-59 are lined with the most amazing trees...huge, hundred foot, I would guess, pine trees line the road. It is a little daunting for this flat land girl to take!

We went to the little town of Whitwell, TN to see the memorial that the middle school there has created to honor the memory of those lost in the Holocaust. If you have not had a chance to see the documentary, Paperclips, please try to see it. This is a great lesson for all of us to learn, that one person can make a difference. You can read more about this amazing memorial at their website www.marionschools.org/holocaust. I knew that it would be a heartrending visit, but I wasn't prepared to begin crying even before I walked in the gate. If you get a chance, take the time to visit this.

I am a retired teacher, 67 years old. I've been searching for blogs authored by people nearer my age.

In scanning through some of your posts, I noticed that you go for periodic glaucoma checks. I have my next one on Oct. 8.

If you don't mind, I'll be checking your blog to see what you have to say! (I love reading about the lives of other people!)
