I killed Bambi's mother

October 9th, 2012
On the way back from Nashville Bambi's mother stepped out in front of my van. Dark night, interstate, 70 miles an hour the poor thing didn't stand a chance. My mom and I were both unhurt but very shook up.
You can see her head print on my hood.

I don't think you can see it but there are back hoof marks on the side of the door. It was driveable which was nice. The Tennessee Highway Patrolman was very nice. The body shop thinks they can fix it. 

Kohler's Visit

October 3rd, 2012
Picked Robin and Brad up at the airport in Nashville.
Only a quick hop over to the Gaylord Hotel (Grand Ole Opryland Hotel)
It's absolutely huge and gorgeous

Beautiful gardens, shops and lots of places to eat.

Thursday we Antique shopped and visited Norris Dam

Robin was fascinated by Kudzu. From Brad we learned that there is a Kudzu beetle. (They were every where. They even ended up in my car.)

Dinner at a Chinese Restaurant.

Trolley ride to Dollywood.

Dolly's bus.

Lots of entertainment.

Monday we went to Gatlinburg in the Smokey Mountains

Planning for the next visit.

I got a strep infection in my leg. They gave me clindomycin. It turns out I am allergic to it. A quick trip to the ER. Lots of prednisone and benedryl. Mean while the rash continued to spread. I wanted to scratch my hide off. Glad to be better.
My mom decided to fly to help. Now we get to play for a month.
