Greeneville TN Vacation We are back!

Howdy Hey All
We are back from our awesome Greeneville TN Vacation
I can not put in to words how awesome it was, and We had the best of the best time.
The leaves were at their peak and again beyond words to express their beauty,

Greeneville is truly Heaven on Earth..
Gene and I visited our Bestest friends and got to see their new home, Arthur and Tina Glidden, Also Tina's sweet Mom Marleen was there so we had a good ole family time!
Gene and I did soooo much, Antiquing, Looking at Homes, Drove to several other towns, Even hit VA and TN border, Looked in shops, Walked though some Mountain trails, Pulled off high way just to take in the beautiful Mountains and fall leaves, animals , birds, just the wonderful clean air. NO TRAFFIC either any where. We went through Caverns, out of the way little homey restaurants and shops,We did do allot while there, So much more than I'm writing about.
So it is finalized Gene and I will be moving there positively and very soon.
We both felt so at peace and so at home, and the people are so laid back, and so very nice..
Even the young people were so laid back not stressed , but seemed happy and polite.
Plus you want for nothing as far as stores and shopping goes..
There is no perfectplace on earth..but for us Greeneville TNsure comes close to perfect.
Our pictures are not the best..
but we wouldn't trade them for any thing..and I will be adding more as time permits.
Please take a peak if you wanna, Leave comments too..
Love to All Gene and Sherrie

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see. This was passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin. I liked this enough to post it to all the pumpkins in my patch. Happy Fall! Ya'll
