Jesse slept well last night as usual, I did until, the trash truck came to empty the dumpsters at 3:00am. Then all I could hear is the vehicles going past on I-65 which is behind us.
I can’t believe they pick up trash that early in a campground.
Anyway we were up at 6:30am and doing our normal routine.
I was pleased to see that Rollie and Gina have started a blog. I read all they have written and can’t wait to hear about what's going on in their lives. Good job guys!!
It is a large part of our daily routine reading about where all our friends are, what they are doing and what fun they are having. We enjoy visiting with them while having our morning coffee.
Today we left at 11am - going to Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.
Our 1st stop was the Waffle House for some breakfast. I was very surprised, the last time Jesse talked me into going to one it was not clean and everything was greasy, today’s was very good.
Country Music Hall of Fame
The Museum’s architecture, with its unique design and materials, celebrates country music and southern culture.
The windows on the front resemble black piano keys.
The giant sweeping arch on the right side of the building portrays a 1950s Cadillac fin.
The cylindrical shape of the Hall of Fame Rotunda recalls the water towers and grain silos found in rural settings.
The four disc-shaped tiers on the Rotunda’s roof represent the evolution of recording technology: 78’s, vinyl LP’s, 45’s and the compact disc.
From overhead, the building resembles the shape of a bass clef musical note.
Inside the on 1st floor you find the rotunda where all the plaques are displayed for its inductees with facial likenesses and thumbnail biographies. Our picture is not so good below. All around the top the words “Will the circle be unbroken” which is the unofficial anthem of the Museum.
Walking through the other two floors with all the displays of information, costumes and records is overwhelming to say the least.
A little trivia: Did you know that ROY ROGERS is the only person inducted two times into the Hall of Fame. The first was with the Original Sons of the Pioneers in 1980, the second was as a solo artist in 1988 the same years as Loretta Lynn.
After leaving we made our way to the Grand Ole Opry which is not what I thought it was. But I will get to that.
On the way we saw a Camping World, so we went there. We purchased some soda flavors and I got a wine glass rack to mount under the cabinet between the kitchen and living area.
This is the only picture I have of the Grand Ole Opry.
This was located in a huge complex with a hotel and a small mall. Not at all what I thought, but I wanted to take a look inside, but Jesse didn’t want to get out of the truck and walk around, so we did not.
I was upset, because this was the reason we stayed two nights in Nashville to begin with. He confuses me so much sometime, but of course he won’t talk about it.
After we got home we walked the boys and I sat to write this entry. I also had a glass of wine so I could mello my mood.
For dinner I made chicken breast, stuffing, gravy and mixed vegetables.
We watched TV for the evening until bed time.
We are traveling again tomorrow, so see ya down the road.
