Hey Peoples, It’s been a little bit since my last post so here is the skinny on the latest haps. First let me jump back in time a little to when we were in Memphis. I neglected to mention before about the healing field we came across. We stayed in an RV park one night and next to it was a huge field which was filled with American flags. Naturally I was curious about this little setup so I wandered over to see what was going on. It was a project called the healing field which had about 3000 some odd flags to represent each of the 911 victims and then also 2000 some odd more flags each with a yellow ribbon with the name of a serviceperson who has died in the Iraq conflict. It was a pretty impressive sight to see. I took a lot of pictures of it and this one here is one of my favs. Ok now skip back ahead to the not quite present. We spent the last week in Knoxville and stayed in the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area a few of the nights we were there. We went to Gatlinburg one day which is the “Gateway to the Smoky Mountaing” super touristy and commercialized. We did have a good time though and rode a ski lift type contraption to the top of a mountain which looked like this: We also went to the Ripley’s (as in believe it or not) Aquarium. It was a pretty nice one and had a cool underground section where you could walk around underneath the tanks full of sharks and other creatures. They also had some smaller tanks of various fish that you could climb under and and stick your head up inside of including this tank of puffer fish. We also had a few days off at the beginning of the week so we drove over to Cashiers where my Dad and Debbie and Bro Justin and Sis Carolyn reside. We had a pretty nice time there visiting with family and going to see waterfalls. This one is called Bridal Falls and you used to be able to drive under it until a big rock fell down and closed the way. Here I am demonstrating how big the rock is and displaying my super-human strength. It was also my Carolyn’s 15th birthday so we had a nice family dinner and finished off with ice cream birthday cake. She did a good job of blowing out the candles. She also proceed to do a fine job of mutilating the cake into an artistic interpretation of a waterfall. You may make donations to the artist and the remaining cake crumbs will be auctioned off on ebay unless the dogs eat them first. We are currently sitting in a coffee shop in Athens, TN and we will be here tomorrow as well. Then we are off to Hixon and Chattanooga, where we will be for about a week before heading off to Atlanta. As usual here is a silly picture to end off with. It is now Halloween season which means fun picture time with wacky inflatables!
