It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Recovered but a Late Night Out.

Our Location today is Sevierville, Tennessee, USA.

We didn’t think that having a couple of travel days in a row would be as tiring as it was but we are just finally starting to feel rested. (Not that we’re getting older but more experienced at traveling.) Once again we slept later than our norm but were a little shocked when we got out of bed. The temperature overnight had dropped down near the 50 F (10 C) which was a drastic change from what we’d gotten used to in Florida and had only it left behind a couple of days ago.
Hank Williams Jr.
While having breakfast we were delighted to see the sun making its first appearance through the clouds in the last thirty-six hours. We cheered it on hoping to encourage its presence but by the time we’d finished our morning coffee the rain had returned to remind us that it was in charge. Of all the times we have been to this area this is the most rain we’ve seen fall in such a short period of time.
Kenny Rogers
The only thing we could do was work on the computers and confirm what our plans would be for the remainder of our stay here in Sevierville. Finally around 1:00 in the afternoon the rain stopped but the sky remained cloud covered for the rest of the day. Around 4:00 I grilled a store bought medium Meat Lovers Pizza on the Weber that we’d also picked up at Walmart but added extra cheese to make it perfect.
New Country Western Star Jason Aldean.
As soon as we’d finished our meal and cleaned up we were out the door heading into Pigeon Forge. Our destination was the Memories Theater where starting at 7:00 we were entertained by none other than Elvis and Friends. Now Kathy had seen the King himself when she was very young along with an aunt but she was impressed by this Impersonator’s rendition of the star himself.
Patsy Kline
Elvis’s friends included Hank Williams Jr., Kenny Rogers, Jason Aldean and Patsy Kline. They all did a great job and brought a lot of memories back from the songs of our day. Most everyone in the audience will probably have leg cramps from all the toe tapping and seat dancing that was done throughout the show.
Being that I don’t use a flash on the big camera just like when we saw the Platters two years ago the entertainers would play up to the camera. This allows me to get pictures that most people don’t get but that also means that I tend to take more pictures than I should. At least after deleting the bad ones I have my pick of the good to post here on the blog.
Grand Finale.
It was nearly 11:00 by the time we got home and even though we’d probably want to sleep-in in the morning we can’t. Tomorrow we are supposed to have sunny skies and we have a morning adventure planned. Remember I’ve said before the weather dictates what we get to do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You've fallen asleep on the commode.


  1. Sounds like a fun evening with good entertainment.

  2. We always go to the Legends Theater when we are in Branson, You always get a good show, Been years snce we were in Sevierville.THe worlds Fair was n Knoxville when we went.

  3. Looks like a fun day. 50 degrees? I guess that would be a shock! Good for you not using a flash. I don't understand why people feel the need to use their flash, even in the daylight.
