KY to TN to Home

Once we left Kentucky, we headed for an overnight in Nashville on the way home. We stopped in the couture cowboy designer Manuel's, met up with a friend for lunch, visited the Grand Ole Opry for a behind the scenes tour, went out to a fancy dinner, stayed in a boutique hotel, and then ate breakfast the next morning (where Jack White happened to come in and sit at the table next to ours) all before heading home.

The Opry is open again after the Nashville floods

The Opry post office! You don't need the address to mail a letter here to any of the member, just address it to their name and "The Grand Ole Opry" and it will get there.

Mailbox #162 is Brad Paisleys and 163 is Dolly Partons.

The stage

Had to add this one in... us on the circle!
At dinner, they brought us desserts for our anniversary, so sweet. Banana beignets with peanut butter ice cream.

We stayed in Hotel Preston, a departure from our normal Nashville hotel. Why did we choose this place? Because you could ask for a fish, lava lamp, or milk and cookies at check in. We ordered a fish and got that and a lava lamp delivered to our door for the night. Crazy!
