10 Things

Shimelle has started a new blog feature, 10 things on the 10th of the month, and has encouraged folks from her Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers class to play along.

For my first installment of Ten Things, I give you 10 things I did on my recent trip to Tennessee:

1. Visited the grave of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash (this is a weird past-time of my husband's and mine...we visit lots of dead musicians.  I'll have to compile them all in another post!)

2. Made friends with my new "niece" Sadie, the miniature Doberman Pinscher my brother in law gave to his wife on the occasion of his retirement. I think the present was as much for him as it was for her!

3. Sent my brother in law off to the world of retirement, after working for the Air Force for 30 years.  It was a Hawaiian themed luncheon, in case you couldn't tell!

4. Learned how they make Jack Daniels. Very fun and free tour of the distillery! Check it out if you're ever near Lynchburg, TN.

5. Caught a show at the Grand Ole Opry

6. Toured the legendary Sun Studios, where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and others got their start.

7. Watched the duck march at the Peabody Hotel

8. Caught a Memphis Redbirds game

10 Ate lots of barbecue!

All in all a very fun trip! Thanks for stopping by!
