Autumn Activities

We started October 2016 with two separate trips with my guys-trip to Miami getting cancelled thanks to Hurricane Matthew, and Ashlee's to Key West and the Bahamas with her mom and niece almost being cancelled due to the same storm.
10/19 - Soon after her trip, Ashlee had to have knee surgery to repair a meniscus tear that had been bothering her for a while and that, obviously, put a damper on our activities for the next few weeks at least.

10/21 - Our first post-surgery activity was going to see the goofy comedy, Boo! A Madea Halloween, at the Watertown Drive-In.  Such a great place for a bargain movie and pretty darn good concessions at a reasonable price.

10/22 - We early voted today and this was actually our first time we've ever voting together, but it was important as we felt we had to do everything we could to stop a dangerous, unqualified person (not to be named here- trying to stay positive) from being our next president .  (Editor's note:  11/9/16...God help us all.)  

10/27 - It was a beautiful night for some Thursday Night Football in Nashville,  Halloween edition!

There was a pre-game show by one of our favorite local bands, A Thousand Horses.  And then another local up-and-coming band, The Cadillac Three, played at half-time.  All that and a game-that-wasn't-as-close-as-the-final-score thrashing of the Jacksonville Jaguars in prime-time on national television, 36-22.

We have to say as always "thank you" for the invitation and the tickets to the game to our own Pink Nightmare, and our dear, dear friend, Wayne.  It's always an adventure with The Wayniac! 
10/29 -  It was a beautiful day for a car ride today, so we headed over to College Grove, TN, to check out another Southern Living Idea House in the swanky development there known as The Grove.
The Southern Living Idea House in The Grove was stunning inside and out, but the backyard and its multiple decks were our favorite part of it.  Anyone got a million bucks or so just layin' around??
