Still beautiful days here in Tennessee!

We are still having nice weather with a bit of rain here and there. But it is not to
cold to leave.....two more days at Dollywood then they close for one week to get
4 million Christmas lights up! We cannot wait - many people here just waiting
for the Christmas time theme, just like us...

This is the Palmetto Quartet and the guy on the right is Naomi Judd's husband and owner of the quartet.....

Gotta go off to Dollywood again......we got our money's worth and met some nice people at our park....

We hate this day as it reminds us that we now live on without our beloved grandson, Mark!
He would have been 25 years old now. RIP

We have never had a day like this before. We spent the day doing nothing but having fun!!!
We started with a long walk then we had made a wonderful lunch outdoors and cooked on
the fire pit. Onions, bell peppers and smoked sausage, with potatoes and for dessert baked
apples. No dinner we were still full!!!!!
Beautiful sunny, warm day!

We love the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee!

We are having the very best time....we changed our one day Dollywood entrance pass for a Seasonal Pass.....we are planning to stay here for well over one month.....we love Dollywood and can come and go as we please......we want to be here when the theme of the park changes from Gospel and Harvest Celebration to Christmas time. But we will leave if the weather gets real bad. So far the weather has been great.....


This is a brilliant gold sphere that we just had to investigate.
This sphere was built for the World's Fair Pavilion in 1982 - we went
to the top for a view of the whole city...

The Pumkin Christmas Tree

We decided to update our day pass for Dollywood to a Season Pass so that we could take our time visiting Dollywood.
So we spent one day, had lots of fun and did not rush around. We will stay for a couple of weeks and maybe even
