Where I stayed

Well here I go trying to be witty and intelligent again. Actually my only real ambition for this blog is to keep you all awake. We had a great day in Abingdon, VA. a very quaint town with a real Main Street and a beautiful old theater. We woke up at eight thirty again only to find out that the FREE breakfast (yes, I am going to make it around the United States spending only Geraldine Dodge's money) ended at nine. So I left my sleepy travel companions watching Pokeman and I started making waffles and toasting bagles. After eating and repacking the van AGAIN!!!!! we set off for the Virginia Highlands Festival located on Main Street, a philly cheesesteak, curley fries, snow cones, ice cream, one temper tantrum, and a couple of hours later we headed out for Nasville, TN. I had every intention of stopping in Knoxsville for dinner, but as I drove through Knoxsville we could still taste the cheesesteaks. Needless to say we kept on going and four and a half hours later we arrived in Nashville, TN. We unloaded the car completly as we are staying here for two nights, something that made Debbie and I jump on the beds for joy!!!! We hung out in the room for a little while, then swam in the beautiful outdoor, roof deck pool for a couple of hours. Our night is now ending after eating really good delivery pizza and pasta, watching the very funny Mr. Bean movie, and a nice glass of wine!!!! Juliet is sleeping on the air mattress, Ellie and I together in a wonderful queen size, and Debbie in her own queen. Goodnight to you all enjoy the pictures and we will talk to you all soon. Oh, and I have already photographed 9 beautiful children of complete strangers and the three beautiful girls of my friend in Baltimore. The flyer I created is really working.
