One day last week, we were so frustrated by all the mud in our front yard (see picture below) getting tracked inside we stripped all the throw rugs front to back, took everything to the Laundromat and Phil scrubbed and waxed every bit of vinyl and vacuumed every inch of carpet. We are trying hard to keep the mud outside until tomorrow when we will move south to cleaner/dryer (hopefully) pastures!
We did get a break in the water-works on Saturday and made a run about 12 miles north up I-75 to the Museum of Appalachia near Clinton, TN. It was so-o-o-o-o-o cold but what a neat place. I have genealogy roots in TN and the Appalachians so I was particularly interested in the surnames mentioned in some of the displays. I have no idea if the COX family display is related in any way to my COX family but it has certainly given me some new information to research.
Because of the weather, it wasn’t very busy at the museum and of course, as is par for the course with us, the BIG Homecoming Celebration was LAST weekend so we missed all the special exhibits. We did see lots of poultry strutting around with lots of goats and sheep on the acreage and there was a volunteer entertainer in the Appalachian Hall of Fame on the complex that was very talented. We bought one of Liza Jane Alexander’s CDs called “Good Old Music.” It should be fun entertainment.
Without further adieu … we are outta here tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time …
