Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

Feel free to double click the photos in the tile format and then see them as a slide show.

DSC03838We absolutely loved the Grand Ol’ Opry convention center. The entire courtyard is an Atrium with beautiful buildings up two stories, running water, waterfalls, plants everywhere, restaurants and bars and all of the rooms looking on the courtyard with balconies in some cases.  Glass roof over all.  This is family owned and a masterpiece.  This, the Opry House, several other event stadiums and a huge shopping center are all a part of the magnificient complex.

How many of you knew that in 2010, the river flooded up into down town Nashville and out at the Opry it flooded the entire Opry House and took 6 months to repair and rebuild.  Everyone in Nashville talks about it and is so proud they recovered.

The old time Opry people and the new young ones put on tremendous entertainment.  And if you have forgotten, this is a radio show sent out all over the world every nite and the audience is a part of it.  The stage lighting and large screens around the room let you see everyone’s faces and the bands in the background.  So many famous Opry members live around here, that some evenings they will just call and say they want to come in a play a number.  Even when I thought I did not know the singer-especially the older guys, they would play their #1 tune of some year back, and I could almost sing along.  Did not know how affected I was by country music.

Am sitting outside in a lovely trailer park in Chattenooga this evening.  Too many trees for a satellite hook up but the trees are pretty as is the park and I am going to swim at the YMCA here 3 of the 5 days.  Love the Silver Sneakers plan.
