Hi Folks
We are about finished day 6 and all is well. The weather has been warm, and although there have been some showers they haven’t affected any of our activities.
We had a very busy day in Nashville on Saturday, but managed to attend all the events including the Midnite Jamboree. Our Back Stage tour at the Opry worked out well and everyone got their picture taken standing in the magic circle centre stage, some even sang on the stage.
Jim Ed Brown was celebrating 50 years on the Grand Ole Opry and along with hosting a segment on the Opry show he also hosted the Midnite Jamboree. Everyone had a chance to have a piece of the 302 pound cake they had at the Midnite Jamboree to celebrate the event.
There was another little blond headed girl on the Opry, who seemed to attract a lot of attention, I believe her name was Carrie Underwood 😉
Sunday we made a stop at a huge Flea Market in Sevierville on our way to Pigeon Forge and after check in at the motel attended the Dixie Stampede Dinner show.
Today was the perfect day for Dollywood, a bit warm, but that made the water rides more inviting. We are trying to play the young folks out but it isn’t working:) A lot of good shows though, and we all had a train ride. We went to the Comedy Barn tonight.
Tomorrow we have a couple of shows and some more shopping time.
