|ON the way out there's a atv riding place..not the same but like|
Prairie City in the Sacramento area. You pay to play..
|Couldn't believe how many people were there!!|
|Ken and Dana at Top Gun|
|Top Gun Arms..|
We left there and took a drive to the Amish country that was near by. We stopped in at one farm and Ken wanted some canned okra and I bought a jar of Elderberry Jelly. Much better prices and not so commercialized as Pennsylvania.

|More Amish area..|
|More Amish too...|
A beautiful drive and we ended up at Tenn South Distillery. We visited there last year and continued the tradition. Took another tour of the little place and learned that's it's thriving and expanding. They just opened another store in Nashville near the Florida Georgia Line bar in downtown. Near the Johnny Cash museum. They're doing well and we're all glad to see. Can't go there and not buy, so we did! HA..
|Thought this sign was too cute, in the bathroom..|
|Their newest machine for filtering vodka..Filtered through 3 levels|
of pure platinum, each level the granuals are smaller. One of the
owners of the distillery designed this unique machine..

|The building itself..will be expanded shortly!|
After that we headed back to Don and Dana's place. We had some crackers and cheese in the trailer and then decided to head back to the cabin at the back of Don's property. Took a few beers for Ken and some wine for me. We enjoyed watching the cows and just enjoying the peace and quiet along with the beautiful scenery! After a couple of hours we headed back to the house as we knew Dana was cooking up something yummy (again) for dinner.
|Heading home from Lynnville, TN..|
|Another way into Don's property..See the 2 red buildings? Their|

|They're all wondering what we're doing!|
|Back to the house|
|Coming upon the house..|
After dinner we sat around the table, drinking too much wine! Near 2300 I finally crawled into bed (after almost crawling up the stairs..haha) Ken came about an hour later. I slept so good that when I looked at the clock is was 0745! Ken was already up along with Don and Dana. Showers and breakfast, I was feeling a bit better and eventually went out to the trailer for a bit. Ken and Don checked out the fences on the property.
About 1200 or so I heard a car in the driveway and it was our neice, Jennifer and her daughter, Bella coming to visit! Had a wonderful afternoon just catching up with her. It's been several years since we had seen them as Jenny moved out here about 3 years ago. Dana cooked up a fabulous lunch of homemade minestrone soup, fresh homemade bread and egg salad! So yummy again. I swear I've gained 10 lbs in the last few days eating her good cooking!
Jennifer left about 1700 and we went into the living room, watched tv and then Don showed us a couple of dvd's about the Battle at Shiloh. We're thinking about going by the battlefield on the way home. It's off Highway 64 between here and Memphis.
About 2100 we called it a night. I know I needed a catchup night..haha.
We set the alarm for 0500 and I went to the trailer and took a shower, Ken took one in the house and then we had coffee in the trailer. We needed to be in Columbia, TN for the truck's 55,000 mile service. We left the house just about 0700 and got here at 0750. Now we're at the Toyota dealer waiting to see if we need brakes or if we're ok to get back home before having that done.
Perfect opportunity to get caught up. Ken talked to his friend Clif, who lives in Crossville, TN so we'll head that way on Wednesday for a few days and then work our way back to Don's before we head home. We need to be in Winnemucca before the 15th or so. That way we'll get our taxes and make another sizable donation to the federal government. :(((
Hope everyone has a wonderful day and I'm trying to get caught up on all your blogs!
