It was a short stay in the hospital last week for Bobby Fletcher. Seems he overworked himself with all that weed eating.
Thursday it was off to Lucky Ladd Farms for a good time with Kullon and Shiloh Patrick, Janna Womack, Adrianna Reed and Ppa and me. The little Patricks were returned Saturday with mom and dad, Shannon and Kyle, and Kullon was the "tour guide".
The weekend of fall break began with our annual trip to Bell Buckle for the craft fair. We saw lots of Cannon County folks enjoying the beautiful day.
Derrick and C.J. Hughes and girls, Kiley and Lily, enjoyed fall break camping at Rock Island State Park.
Tim, DeAnna, Alayna and Adrianna Reed took off Sunday afternoon for an overnight trip to Chattanooga to enjoy the sights and sounds around that city which included Rock City. And of course they just had to eat at the City Café Diner.
They weren't the only ones enjoying the good eats there that day. Todd and Tracy Hollandsworth were also enjoying the enormous amount of good food and great desserts.
Monday night, Ppa and I picked up my sister, Wanda Yule of Peculia, MO, from the airport. Tuesday, we were off to Tunnell Hill, GA for a visit with Jewell Dale and Brian. Of course that took us through Chattanooga and we, too, had to take in the City Café Diner goods.
Sunday, Ernest and Rita Davis with Kim and Callie Francis, Brooklyn and Londyn Francis, Angie, and Hannah and Justin Whited were in Dunlap where they enjoyed watching the Tennessee Treetoppers hang glide. This was followed by a stop in at Ketner's Mill for a little blue grass music.
Gatlinburg and surrounding area is also another popular place for the "fall breakers". Tonya, Alyssa and Alana Whited were there as were Brad and Stefanie Leach, Samantha and Madison Gaither.
