Nashville To Atlanta

Five days plus late nights equals a whole lot of fun.  Stone and I where recently on the road to Nashville where the University Of Tennessee mens Basketball competed in the SEC basketball tournament.

 Printers Alley is home to numerous bars and ugh, ewww,  adult entertainment.  Neither of these did we attend.  It's funny that all the trips I've made to Nashville over the years and I've never heard of Printers Alley.

Tootsies Orchard Lounge, a legendary Honky Tonk bar features live music and is where some of the worlds greatest songwriters and country music legends have spent time, including  Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline and numerous others.  On November 13, 2014 Tootsies celebrated 54 years of being in Nashville, Tennessee.  While in town, Stone and I spent many hours at Tootsies dancing the night away, song after song as he twirled me all over the dance floor.

Following our time in Nashville, we drove to Atlanta to visit the girls and of course Jimmy, my favorite son-in-law.  With the weather being nice, we walked everywhere we went, which I always love.  A body in motion stays in motion.  Soon after our arrival we had a quick lunch and then were off to the High Museum Of Art https://www.high.org/Art/Exhibitions/Gordon-Parks-Segregation-Story.aspx, where Africa American Artist Gordon Parks Segregation Story exhibition was on display.  Parks, a photographer and writer for Life magazine, became "one of the most provocative and celebrated photojournalist in the United States."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Parks

While walking on the Atlanta BeltLine, Abby Gail, Malia, Stone and I stopped to look around in this shop along the trail.  This adorable little guy just laid there, happy to be at work with his owner.
