So, as you already know from previous posts, my birthday is coming up. In fact, it is this Saturday, and I have an opportunity to travel down to Nashville to celebrate with some great friends! Last night, we (Ren and Dan and I) pulled into Kodak, TN (next to Pigeon Forge aka the home of DOLLYWOOD) Dan is working some trade show in Sevierville for his work and Ren is helping to set it up and tear it down. When he gets done today, we head out to Nashville, then meet up with Dan next week to head back to Philadelphia.
Anyways, I have this thing for collecting travel brochures. And I have this REALLY BIG THING for Dolly Parton. So on my way to the ice machine here at the Days Inn, I picked up a dozen or so to peruse through:
Sweet Dolly - I xoxo you!
You know how much I adore macaws
There were TONS of religious flyers. Everything from dinner parties to gospel choirs to rib smoke-outs to parrots, etc. For some reason I grabbed one that looked pretty tame from the outside, but imagine my surprise when I opened up this musical brochure to find a full pull-out poster inside! Damn, they are not playing around in the PF, TN.
And of course, who doesn't want a Smokey Mountain Christmas??!?!?! BTW, happiest Santa ever, right?
I went to Dollywood on a family vacation when I was a wee tabby kitt. (Duh, I'm from the south!) If I had the time, for damn sure I'd be waiting in line for the Mystery Mine humming Heartbreak Express.
Actually you can hit me up anytime, and I'll sing you a DP ditty. Pinky swear!
More birthday / travel updates to come!
Total Love &
