WOW! I am just all over the place! Today, I went to Opryland.
First, pulled in to park….$16. YAY! Signs of things to come. So, I meet my former co-worker and she hadn’t seen me in a couple of months. It’s always nice to see the expression on people’s faces when they haven’t seen me in a little while, and I’ve lost weight, look rested, and I am smiling.
Then, when we went in, she advised that we find somewhere else to eat, since where we were going to eat was pretty pricey. Oh, the irony of this part of the trip (you’ll learn why after the pretty pics). So, we start walking around and around and around. It was pretty inside of the hotel complex.
About 40 minutes later, we ended up back at the pricey restaurant with me offering to treat. I hadn’t eaten since breakfast and my legs were hurting a bit. I was good, folks. I had a salad and a few shrimp hushpuppies , and….lots of non-alcoholic, non-carbonated beverages. I was stuffed and then we parted ways after a really nice, long conversation and her working on me to stay in the South. (We’ll see about that, maybe….maybe not.)
The fun doesn’t end there, though. I went east on 40 rather than west. No biggie, just find the next exit and turn around…BUT….of course there is a tractor trailer accident. I got off of 40 to go the right way. However, I had to go through the airport to do it. (Btw., while I’m here, if you need someone to pick you up, I now know how to navigate the airport.)
So…my relaxing day was a day of going in circles. It’s all good, though. I have nowhere to be and no one expecting me to be anywhere. Always a good thing.
Tomorrow, I think I’ll just tackle the wash and scanning the Sunday paper I bought.
I’m going to go vege. The sweet tea has me zonked.
I’m liking it here. But there is this sign that is huge and at night it is lit up all big and blue. It shines in the windows, and even through the slits in the blinds, I can see it. Yeah.
I’m sure I have some grammar errors in all of that, but I’m too tired to care. Seriously, what was in that sweet tea? Geesh. I have nothing planned until the 15th, so I should be all geared up and rested. HA!
If that didn’t entertain you enough (bwahahaha), HERE are this week’s caption contest winners.
