..... the missus and I drove down to Chattanooga today and had a beautiful lunch with Richard of Shadowscope and his missus, Holder...... their two lovely daughters were in attendance as well, and they were a true pleasure to meet...... I have a feeling that both of them will end up being artists - judging by the coloring books that Big River provided them with as we ate our meal......

.... between listening to Big Folk talk, coloring, and eating, their enthusiasm (and anticipation) for hitting the Tennessee Aquarium had both girls itching to get going...... his eldest daughter had even busied herself during the meal by drawing pictures of all the critters that she hoped to see once lunch was over!....

..... so after a healthy meal and a few beers, we left them to go on their way...... it was a very civilized way to spend an autumn Saturday afternoon...... and I hope they make it up again soon.....

.... I then hit the jewelry store to pick up a piece that we'd left to be adjusted..... and then, on to the mall at Hamilton Place..... I'll tell you one thing, boys and girls..... the kind folks at Jared's definitely do not skimp when it comes to taking care of their customers..... in Knoxville, we usually frequent Carlyle & Co..... but when in Chattanooga?.... I highly recommend Jared's....

.... anyway, I'm beat..... and since I STILL haven't gotten the YouTube bug out of my system yet, here's another one for y'all to chew on for a while.....

.... I'm off to pour a Laphroaig, slip my socks off, and make fists with my toes in the carpet for the rest of the night......

"make fists with my toes in the carpet for the rest of the night"

Sounds like you'll be having a TRULY first class evening...

Jesus.....Johnny Cash was the shit.

His drummer (in the late 60s) was Opal's neighbor on Ridgecrest Road in Jackson, TN.

Richard's girls are a caution, ain't they? Holder, too - a Colander Girl of the first water!

My boys love their girls. They are great kids... well behaved, laugh readily and are just a whole lot of fun. Richard and Holder are GREAT parents and wonderful people. You can see it in their girls.

It was damn sure nice to see the both of you. We did have a great time and of course by the time we finished the aquarium both the youngest girl and myself were DONE for the day. We've spent the great majority of the weekend dealing with whatever bug has been floating around. Yuck. Off to work now.

prehensile toes, eh? The things we learn about our friends.
It was great to see you guys again.
And I meant what I said about cooking for y'all, too.
