Nashville or Bust

The trip that started a longer journey

Here!

Had a great drive and rolled into Nashville only to discover that our hotel is home base for some Miss Teenage America Scholarship … uuum they mean BEAUTY contest. Instantly, my hair seemed flat. Fixed it with some hairspray, dropped our junk and we are out the door. Later!

Thank goodness for Radio Shack!

Lost the firewire to our little digi cam ages ago. And, all my luck, it has a round 4-pin portal that no one makes anymore. But alas, I got sm*rt and went to Radio Shack. Figured they had a gizmo that could plug my flash card direct into the computer. Best $19.95 spent today. Targus. What’s not to love?  Now we can further incrimindate ourselves by uploading pictures as we tell our (to be I’m sure) insane tale… 

Loading car once Dave gets off the phone then heading S on 75/71.

Who Knew?

Twenty years ago if you had asked me how I would celebrate my 40th, I know I would never had said by going to Nashville. And blogging the journey. Then again, never did I think I’d be living in Kentucky and enjoying all the things offered by the Bluegrass State (including Bourbon!) We have our tix in hand for Allison & Robert, gas in the car, plans for the kids to stay behind and bar money. Here’s to music, adventure, love and silliness. Ride along with us. Not sure where this one is going… J.
