I survived the return trip to the Great Northwest.

Charlie, thanks again for all you do to preserve Central history.  The persimmon bread was great.

Buffy, thanks for sharing what seems to have been the “rooky” table at Ryans.  Appreciate you attitude and willingness to be a part of the effort and to help bridge the gap between the two Centrals.  Thanks too for your generous donation to the Central Historical Marker Fund.

Bobby, stop trying to convince folks you aren’t in the lead on the historical marker project.  Thanks for tipping a couple or….. with me on Thursday and Friday.  I’m always nervous of the unexpected when traveling to the airport for a trip, so I did not go by the Tennessee Historical Commission.
