My Trip To Tennessee

I met somebody online, through the Muncie Newspaper at the beginning of February.  He found me on there, invited me as a friend, so I accepted.  Didn't really think anything about it at that time.  He e-mailed me and gave me his phone #, so I called him that night.  We ended up talking for 5 hours that night, and at least 2 hours every day since.  On February 12, I rented a car and drove down to Tennessee to meet him.  I am so glad I did.  We really got along great.  I only stayed til Sunday morning, because of the weather. 
 He took me all around Franklin, where he lives.  Of course, I had my camera ready at all times!  I did take a lot pictures than this, just a lot of them didn't turn out very well, cause I was in such a hurry, I didn't have my camera set right!  I'm such a goober!   lol

 Then, we drove in to Nashville.  I'm glad he was driving, cause I hate big cities!  It was really pretty cool down there.  Next time I go, we'll spend more time downtown.  I just wasn't up for dealing with crowds.

Ernest Tubb Record Shop


Ryman Auditorium, original home of the Grand Ole Opry


This is a pedestrian bridge that goes from downtown Nashville, over to the Tennessee Titans football stadium.


Then, the trip home.  :(


  
This last picture was taken about 10 minutes south of Bowling Green, KY, off I-65.  I was driving about 70-75 MPH when I shot this!  6 hours there, 6 hours back, and only one and a half tanks of gas for the entire trip!  I rented a brand new Chrysler Sebring and what a great ride!  I didn't want to turn it back in!  lol 
Well, I don't know when I'll get around to posting again.  Haven't posted in 4 months!  Been living on Facebook!
Gonna go for now
Love Ya
Lisa

Great post, Lisa. I have really missed your posts! Your photography is as striking as ever (is this a different camera...what kind do you have?). And the shot of John shows a fine man. I can tell he is that and I am SO glad that you two have connected in this way. Life sure is interesting with its punches and caresses, eh? Congratulations to both of you on finding good good people to befriend and maybe develop into a sweet partnership.

Congratulations. So often these things turn out badly. Glad it was a good trip for you and the two of you hit it off very well.
Good luck, keep e-mailing one an other and talking over the phone.
