No Economic Downturn here

McEwen Road was finished through to Mallory Lane when Nissan Headquarters moved here. So that means, more corners to put things. There is three lots under construction right now. They post signs like these and make us wonder and wait to see what is coming.

Southern Food

Here is what I ate at the Loveless Cafe. Fried chicken, cream corn, and cumcumbers and onions. This is typical southern food. Meat and 2 is what its sometimes called - meat and two vegetables. I don't get this type of food very often but when I do it brings back memories of my mamaw's (grandmother's) cooking.

Loveless Cafe

This restaurant is in Nashville but is a tourist destination for everyone. It is at the end of the Natchez Trace on Hwy 100. It has been here since 1951 and serves the best southern food. The motel rooms are now shops and art galleries.

These docents are in traditional 1800's dress. This is at the oldest home on this historic tour built in the early 1800's. The home is named Meeting of the Waters because it located at the joining of the Big Harpeth and West Harpeth River that runs through Franklin.

Reynolds House

Yet another home on the historic tour. This property has been in the same family since 1890. It was recently renovated including raising the foundation to build a basement. The original house and house seen here have been damaged by fires several times so the family installed a sprinkler system. The family added other ecofriendly innovations but kept the original architecture intact.

This is the courtyard entrance to the Brownstones in downtown Franklin. Two of these homes were on the historic tour. They are newly built but fit in nicely with the architecture of the downtown area. Each home has four floors and many outside patios.

Stone Bungalow

This is another home on the Historic Franklin tour located on Third Avenue. As the story goes, the father gave his daughter the house only after she divorced her husband. When her father died two years later, she remarried her exhusband. The original home on this property was owned by the man who shot Abraham Lincoln during a brawl in 1813. When Abrahan Lincoln became president he had the bullet removed and gave it to the gunman who had become a member of Congress.

Riding Horses

We went to Cedars of Lebanon State Park yesterday to ride horses. It was the first time for our family. I'm glad the horses knew what to do, but we had a great time.
