When I first called the hotel I got a run-around about their rates. I was told I couldn't order on Expedia but that's what I wound up doing. I drove to the hotel and checked in. The room was dark and at least one lamp didn't have a bulb in it. The Internet connection was very slow. In the morning I went to get breakfast. The only food I found was hot dog rolls, coffee, which I don't drink, and cereal but no milk. I mentioned to the person at the reception desk that the juice machine seemed to be turned off and just got a shrug of the shoulders and no explanation (or juice). I skipped the hot dog roll and headed back to my room.

Up and away with coffee in hand. Our destination is Nashville today. It seemed like only minutes after we left Cincinnati and crossed the bridge over the Ohio River and cruised into Kentucky. A good day for driving and the weather cooperated once again.
Kentucky was lovely and green. I do believe we are past the snow belt now. As the day went ...
... impression of downtown Nashville failed to charm me. One bar after another filled with tourists listening to all manner of ensembles playing mostly cover songs in four hour shifts for around $50 in tips. It's like busking indoors. The actual buskers on the street had a world weary look about them. One playing an alto sax played "Turkey In The Straw" said to me "That's worth a dollar." "It is," I said, without breaking stride. I did give a dollar to a bum with a cardboard ...
... listening to a lot of songs by re-creating the recording sessions. For example, when Elvis recorded Are You Lonesome Tonight, he started recording at 4am with the studio almost in darkness and it made the song really come alive.
After the tour, we did a little tour of the city with a local guide to show us. He liked to blow his own trumpet a bit about how good he was.
... for a while, and Lois spotted a cinema which was showing the latest Disney film, Maleficent. So after some convincing, we had made it in there, and it turned out to be quite good, with the emphasis being on the quite! Leaving the cinema, we spotted a food truck outside the theatre, and tucked in there. Still feeling reasonably lively, we headed into the main part of town for a gander. Driving down, some roads were closed and blocked off, when we looked ...
... she also called up a guest singer for a few. I am pretty sure Chris favorite moment was when she sang Journey's Lights... "When the lights go down in the City..." Chris began to croon along. Perhaps he is a true San Franciscan at heart now.
Time to tuck ourselves in bed for the big drive to FL. I would definitely come back to Nashville, maybe check out different venues with people playing their own original stuff next time.
