A Song about Dandridge???

Georgia....Georgia..... I love that song!!! But  Dandridge...Dandridge....doesn't work! If it were Christmas time, I could have Amy Grant sing Tennessee Christmas but thank goodness, it isn't!

Moving on...

On our way to Savannah, we stopped for lunch with Chuck and Karen Youngman, who used to live across the street from Jerry and Penny. Chuck and Jerry are brothers. Chuck and Karen built a home in Dandridge TN a couple of years ago and Penny and Jerry moved to a new condo in Louisville KY. This is only good in that it gives us wonderful people to visit in wonderful places.  During lunch, C and K suggested that, upon our return trip from Savannah, we should stop in Dandridge and spend the night with them. They are probably sorry they did (not really) because we took them up on it.

"Did anyone tell them we were coming???"

After our arrival Thursday afternoon, we hopped into their fancy new van and Chuck drove us around to show us the sites. They live near Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Close by was the home of Bush's Baked Beans!!! Now, next to Randall's Beans (in good ol' Tekonsha, Michigan), Bush's Beans are one of my favorites!
On our way to Pigeon Forge, we drove along the river.
It was just beautiful!

Dinner was in Gatlinburg and it was an adventure!!!

"Adventure" is really putting it mildly!

It was quite an adventure!!!
Friday morning, I was up earlier than the others (no great surprise) and enjoyed the view of the mountains from most any window.

It was a beautiful, peaceful scene.
And then..........

Chuck and Karen cooked!
And we ate...
and ate...
and ate!
And it was delicious!!!
I'm still full!
It was then time to say goodbye to our friends.
 It was so pretty at Chuck and Karen's home and we were loving the weather.
 We headed to Louisville to spend our last night with Penny and Jerry. Tom and I love being with them. We like so many of the same things and I never feel guilty about unpacking my electronics in front of Penny because she rivals me in this area.
 Before leaving on Saturday morning, Penny and Jerry took us to the Wild Egg for breakfast. I had melt-in-your-mouth blueberry pancakes! I don't ever remember eating such incredible pancakes. (Can you tell that I grazed my way through this vacation???)

I would have taken a picture of the pancakes but I was too busy inhaling them!!!
Then it was time to say goodbye to Penny and Jerry.
We had so much fun being with them.
Can't wait to return this summer!!!

 Thanks soooo much for a wonderful time!!!
