There was a tiny bit of snow on the ground as I headed home but the
precipitation had pretty much ended. I stopped at both familiar and
unfamiliar places and saw for myself the irreparable fire damage at the
Horseshoe Camp Cabins north of Bowling Green.
The thing I came to see didn't happen. The reenactment of the Battle of
Franklin was canceled due to rain. Then I got to the Bluebird too late for
a seat. Bummer but could be worse.
I've intended to go to the
Battle of Franklin Reenactment for a couple of weeks
but I had no plan for doing so. The reenactment is scheduled for Sunday
afternoon and I even considered hitting the road early that morning and driving
directly from home to the battlefield. That didn't really sound like much
fun so on Thursday I booked a room halfway between Nashville for Saturday
and Sunday nights and my planning was done. I made a one item to do list
(Johnny Cash Museum), picked a possible spot for breakfast, and hit the
road midmorning Saturday. It turned out to be a good day that ended
with a surprise listen to one of my musical favorites.
