Aug 8, 2012 - Tennessee Trip (June 2012)

Day 1: The drive up. Day 2: Spent the day in Gatlinburg. Went on the skylift, and then in the Guiness world records museum. Ate in the Pizza Hut. Then, we went on the space needle. After that, we went into the Wax Museum. Last, we went into the "Castle of Chaos", and played some kind of first person shooter game. I won, by a lot. Day 3: We went into Cade's Cove.

Jul 30, 2012 - A Busy Month

Yeah, I know – it’s been a long time since our last update. We are still alive and well, busy and busy. This month has been Kids Fest at Dollywood – tons and tons of them. The weather has continued to be very hot with occasional downpours. While we have enjoyed a few less hours of working since the college kids have arrived, they are now in the process of leaving, just as Dollywood Nights comes along. Park hours during Kids Fest were 9am-8pm; during DW Nights, the park is open 10am-10pm. Soooooo, we are going to be working longer hours...

Back To Dollywood

Jul 5, 2012 - Happy 4th of July - Late!

Well, here it is July already and it's been a long time between postings. In June, I went home on the 9th to spend two weeks with our granddaughters, Alex and Darby. Blue Ridge Community Theater in our hometown of Blue Ridge, GA runs a two week drama camp every summer called SunnyD. Our granddaughters have been attending it for the last 7 years. This year Alex was a Director (leader/counselor)of the Tweens group (8-12 year olds) and Darby was a camper in the Teens group. Rick decided to stay and work. The girls and I made a trip to Pigeon...

Jun 23, 2012 - A Visit to Applewood Farms

Today we went to Applewood Farms, a restaurant we have loved in past visits to Pigeon Forge. The food was as good as ever and after lunch we wandered around the property, shopping in the shops there. After lunch we crept back (literally, traffic is awful on 441) and spent the rest of the day reading. Tomorrow we leave for West Virginia.

Jun 22, 2012 - The First Leg of Our Trip

Beginning Mileage 20085 Ending Mileage 20225 Creekside RV Resort 2475 Henderson Springs Rd. Pigeon Forge, TN 37863, 865-428-4801 8/9/9 After getting a late start, we headed up U.S.411. The ride was uneventful and we made good time until we got 4 miles from Pigeon Forge and we came to a crawl. Pigeon Forge is nothing like it used to be. It is now one big tourist trap and very crowded. The RV Park is nice and we will only be here for two nights so we will just stay off of the strip as much as possible.

Jun 13, 2012 - Pigeon Forge...the glitz of Tennessee

We left Atlanta at 8am this morning heading for Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It was a fairly long, 4 hour, drive, all interstate. Had wanted to go the scenic route but Tom-Tom decided otherwise, taking us the quickest route. Stopped off for breakfast at Denny's, not bad but nothing to write home about. Then we stopped off at a Super Walmart where Gaz proceeded to purchase yet more clothes. He's not having any space in my suitcase on the way home I can tell you!! I did actually purchase a top for myself. I spent all of $12 for this last of the...

May 29, 2012 - Events In May

This journal covers April 27 to May 29, 2012 It doesn’t seem possible that another month has gone by. We haven’t been doing a very good job of keeping up with our journal. We do have an excuse. For retired people, we sure do work a lot of days and hours. That’s the result of our work ethic and the fact that our Team Leads recognize that we get the job done and are dependable. Our friends the Pattersons and Austins are in the same boat. It’s good to be wanted I guess and to know our parents taught us right! Rick also is recognized by his...

May 15, 2012 - The Great Smokey Mountains National Park

#34 5/15/2012 We started our day with the Bush Beans Factory tour. You don't actually get to go into the factory, they show you a very informative film. Then you get to tour a museum that they have set up. It was very interesting to see. It was very nice, they took our picture with "Duke" for free. Nice to get something for free for a change, the tour was free as well. The people there were all very nice and polite, like they really enjoyed their jobs! It was very refreshing for a change. Next I spotted a covered bridge sign. I always have...

#33 5/14/2012 I forgot to tell you, last night we went to dinner at a place called Mama's Farmhouse. Other than hometown cooking, we had no idea what we were getting into.

Here is what was on the menu: meatloaf, turkey, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, corn pie (baked cream corn), carrots, cranberry sauce, biscuits, corn bread, macaroni & cheese, soup or salad, banana cream pudding or apple cobbler. They give you all that food, then you can more of anything you want except the...
