Darn! We Forgot to Pack Something!

Cousin Amy and I made it back home safe and sound earlier this afternoon but it appears that we forgot to pack the beautiful Tennessee weather with us as we returned home to dreary gray skies rather than the brilliant blue skies that we enjoyed in Nashville ... and after I told her to make sure we had everything, too!

Anyway, all weather aside, I wish that I had time to edit pictures and write posts to tell you all about  my mighty fine time in Middle Tennessee but alas, duty calls and it's back to work tomorrow for 16 hours in the dispatch center so I'm afraid that the posts are going to have to wait just a bit longer.

Before I forget, though, the answers to my questions the other day about the Tennessee State Capitol is that former President Andrew Jackson has the first equestrian statue and former President James Polk is buried on the Capitol grounds. Trust me, I'll fill in you a lot more as soon as I can!  In the meantime though, happy October no matter what color your skies may be!


  1. Yeah, you sure are right about not being able to bring some nice weather east with you. Rain here in PA too and apparently more yucky stuff to come, including in some parts of this lovely state, the possibility of some light snowfall overnight tonight exists. I am soooo not ready for snow! (Thankfully, the forecasters say it probably won't hit the area where I live but still, winter seems to be in a big hurry to arrive this year, doesn't it?

  2. Welcome back to Reality!

    We had some severe, clear blue skies the day we went to Gloucester and Rockport, but yesterday it was rainy and dreary. Luckily, the rain stopped long enough for Mike to grill the pizzas last night! yum!

    Today I fly back home to reality where I am told tonight it will be unseasonably chilly... 44! Yikes!!

  3. Reality does set in, dang it. We'll just happily wait on your stories and photos. It will happen. Welcome home!

    Big hugs, honey...

  4. I will be looking forward to it. Don't let them work you too hard.

  5. It looks like Blogger has deemed Captain Picard's Journal a spam blog. Hopefully normal service will be resumed when they review it as I asked.
