Monday Musings: The Nashville Edition

Dear Birthday:
I celebrated you early in Nashville this weekend.   You may now roll quietly by…

Dear Ole Boy:
Sometimes, you just catch me by surprise.   You did that this weekend by giving me a gift that I mentioned I’d like to have months ago…and you remembered!   (See below.)

Dear Tennessee:
If I could no longer live in Alabama, I’d choose you as my home.   However, my rebel yell will forever be “Roll Tide!”

Dear God:
I saw so many different faces this weekend, and none of them looked alike.   Your creations are amazing.

Dear Hoodlum-looking Young Man:
If you don’t, at some point, look at your buddies who are wearing their pants below their butt cheeks (just like you) and think to yourself “You really look stupid!” I don’t know if there’s any hope for you worry about you.

Dear Other Young Man,
I don’t think the girl you were with appreciated being subjected to your “pants on the ground.” I sure didn’t!  Crack is whack!!   I don’t think you were trying to be cool…maybe you didn’t realize it…but didn’t you feel a draft??

Dear Cock of the Walk Server:
I don’t think you really deserved a tip, but we left you a decent one anyway.   Somehow I feel ashamed to not leave a gratuity even when you have done nothing to merit it.

Dear Antique Archeology:
I expected your new Nashville store to be much larger.

Dear Young Mother:
I realize she scared you running out in the parking lot…but if you don’t stop yelling at her like that, I promise one day you will regret it, and you won’t be able to take any of it back.

Dear Drury Inn:
Great idea about the shower gel/shampoo/conditioner dispenser in the shower.   I won’t fall for that trick again.  I just hope my hair recovers!

Dear Golden Corral:
What?   No breakfast pizza AND no chocolate fountain?!  Hmph!!


A few months ago, I mentioned that I'd like to have a small camera for my purse.   There are times I'd like to take a picture, but my camera is too big to lug around everywhere I go, and I miss some pretty good photo opps.    Ole Boy remembered, and he got me are some pictures I took this weekend with my new camera....

My last view of Nashville Sunday Morning as I was leaving...
It was snowing and it was very pretty.
