|Us in front of the infamous Tootsie's Orchid Lounge. It was Clint's first|
time to experience Tootsie's.

|Clint planned a surprise weekend trip for me a few weeks ago. We |
were on our way to Nashville to see the Grand Ole Opry!
|Window shopping ... ♫ how much is that torso in the window,|
the one with the ... ♫
|The Nashville skyline as we arrived Friday afternoon |
on January 13, 2012.
|Clint in the lobby of the Marriott Courtyard on West End,|
we were pleased with the hotel. We're
waiting for the shuttle to take us to the Ryman.
|Conversation overheard at this traffic light: "Clint, get back into|
this shuttle! You have no business going into "Larry's place!"
|Approaching Broadway on Friday evening, January 13, 2012|
|Clint trying to upstage Elvis!|
|One could hardly move in Tootsie's,|
|I made this photo inside the old original Ryman. I was reminded once again|
we were watching a live radio show. It was interesting to see all the
activity behind the scenes.
|I kept thinking Broadway has a Bourbon Street atmosphere to it.|
The crowds were wonderful to see, when I lived in Nashville in
1974 I can remember this area being empty.
|Who could give a warmer welcome than |
Minnie Pearl and Hank Williams!
|The Rolls Royce of country singers, Connie Smith.|
|Enjoyed seeing the old photos and albums|
in this old shop.
|Saturday as we headed back to the hotel, I thought this was the most|
beautiful scene from Broadway looking toward West End Avenue.
We had the most wonderful time.
When I wrote my previous blog yesterday and clicked on "Publish Post", I was thinking it might just spiral down the cyberspace black hole without anyone reading it. Thank you all for your visits and reading my posts! I am doing okay. I am reading all your blog posts, not yours Ginny because you don't have one ... yet. :~) Before I started this blog post today, I was not going to do anymore "woe is me" posts right now. As life would have it, something happened today that was unbelievable. After I got back into the car with Clint this afternoon, I was a little shaky/sick and was telling Clint what I had just experienced. (Clint's first response was 'good blog material') It had not quite dawned on me what had just happened until Clint reminded me and said: You just saved a woman's life.
I did, this afternoon I saved a woman's life! I will tell about this next time I write, I may leave this Nashville post up for a day or two. Take care and thanks again for your visits.
