Nashville is the home of the Grand Ole Opry, originally started as a radio program in 1925 it survives today with much of the same character as it did 88 years ago. I had a chance to attend the Opry a number of years back and it was like going back in time. After a few sets the show would stop for a commercial that was read in front of the audience. While this was going on the stage was being prepared for the next act. If you like country western music and want to an institution, I highly recommend a visit to Nashville. This area suffered under a severe flood 2 years ago and it has recovered remarkably. The Gaylord Opryland Resort is also something you need to see with it's beautiful indoor atrium's, complete with it's own river flowing through the Delta Conservatory. Big enough to float a boat, you can go for a nice ride as you pass, catfish, carp, and colorful koi fish. I will have to get back someday.
On Monday I dropped off the boat at the dealer to get the cover re-fitted for the new trolling motor and am hoping that it will be done when I get back later tonight. Once I have the boat back it will be full speed to the opener. I still have much to do before I go but admittedly it's a labor of love. The forecast is talking about snow again on Saturday. Oh well!
