By pwsadmin / March 29, 2023 /

“Tommy the Dawg” is so dang smart. I’ve driven all over this mountain with him at my side, and in the beginning, I would say the words, “Hold On” when going into a curve or making a turn, and he learned to “hold on.” He did this by taking his head out of the window,…

By pwsadmin / March 28, 2023 /

“It’s an Atrium. It’s just a Man-Made-Atrium, ‘Lynn,’” I told myself. “This isn’t ‘Gilligan’s Island.’” I had gone to an “After-Show” Party and returned to the “Opryland Hotel” after 1 AM. The hotel has over 2800 rooms.It’s the size of several football fields. I had taken an “Uber” to get back to the hotel, and…

Highway 160 is the main highway in this area. I believe it’s also one of the most dangerous roads in Alabama. There have been some horrible wrecks on 160.On average, I’d guess a wreck every ten days or so occurs on 160.The thing is, it’s pretty straight.So, since it’s straight, people go 70 on it,…

I finished “The Grapes of Wrath.”It’s gonna take a good 24 to 48 hours for me to recover from reading…that.
