      Holly Williams sang a beautiful song about her mothers dad, Waiting on June. You would think with a dad like Hank JR. and Hank senior as a grandfather her mothers side wouldn't get a mention.
      Then there was Scotty McCreery, the teenie boppers went nuts.

          I'm  not familiar with Whispering Bill, but I don't follow the Opry and some of the old-time singers very closely.  However, I did get there in 2007 and saw Little Jimmy Dickens.  He was funny--stood on a stool to sing, talked about his Pepto Bismol colored suit, etc.
           
          I like how you get to see so many acts at the Opry--some old timers, some new--and they cycle them so you get to hear quite a few songs out of all of them.  Great time.

            Bill Anderson, He was big 40 years ago.
            Well we ate at Opry Mills the Cheese steak was really good.
            Tonight we ate at Johnny Rockets, the place looked good we don't have a place like this near home, big mistake, just because the food is big doesn't make it good. first and last time for Johnny's.
            Walked downtown Nashville this afternoon, most of the bars and restaurants have good singers and beer. Actually the more bars you stop at the better the music gets.

                    Macon, Georgia was the very first place I ate grits.
                     
                    It was 1975.  I was with 2 friends and we had a 31 day Greyhound Bus Pass which we used to tour the United States.
                     
                    The Greyhound cafeteria was serving grits and I asked some other girls that were ordering them how to eat them.
                     
                    One said butter, salt and pepper and the other said butter and sugar.  Number one was right.
                     
                    I think I began my love of Roadfood on that trip.  I also had steamed blue crabs right off of a boat in Baltimore and gumbo in New Orleans. 
                     
                    Back to the topic... have fun!

                      Better down here than at home right now.  Nashville is 55 tomorrow and 60+ later this week

                        At home  for me is north of Toronto makes Nashville feel warm.
                        I feel guilty not posting food pictures but if Doc and CTF saw what the wife and I were eating they would disown me.
                        On to Clearwater today.
                        Never tried Grits maybe this trip.

                              Maybe you should have had the bacon instead. 
                              Clearwater, don't see any BBQ smoke rising.

                                Bacon would have been better. Hemlock would have been better, too.

                                        Cocoa Beach, Kay's for ribs, slaw, Mac & cheese.
                                        Not bad but not worth going back.

                                          The wife, kids and myself ate at a Cuban Cafe La Tinaja in Cocoa Beach. It was really good Cuban food if that interests you. Enjoy your time there, I love Cocoa Beach.

                                                Man I'm jealous. Had a heck of a day at work today. I would have loved to be back at Cocoa Beach. My wife wants to move there and work at the hospital but not the rght time for me. We kayaked in the thousand islands conservation area with the manatees and wild dolphins in August. That was fun. Which place did you dine on the Pier if you dont mind me asking? We ate at the Atlantic Ocean Grill which we enjoyed. Sorry about rambling on I just really miss the ocean. We will be back this summer when kiddos are out of school.

                                                  I think that was the name of it but I'm not sure.
                                                  We walled up the pier and there was a bar and seats so we sat down and ate. We were so enthralled with the birds and Ocean view I never even saw where the food came from. For entertainment the Pidgins were mating on the rail it was a continuous show. At the end of the Pier the Pelicans were hilarious trying to beg fish like dogs at a dinner table.

                                                    Tex,
                                                    Last year we went, Dearborn,Nashville, Memphis, Orlando. We wanted to go from Memphis to Corpus Christi but the weather there was wet. We tried again this year but the same thing, it looked like the storm that is reeking havoc now was sitting over C.C. Is CC always like that this time of year and is it worth the trip.

                                                      Did the Space center, not very organised.
                                                      Stopped at a Diner, not very good.
