We visited the town where my parents lived for 27 years....Crossville, Tennessee. They moved here, from Dayton, when my folks retired. They loved it here, loved their friends, loved the life they made in Middle Tennessee. My Dad is buried here and many of my parent's friends remain. We visited each one, had some lovely meals sprinkled with laughter, great conversation and memories shared. For those of you who frequent flea markets and yard sales, you may well know about the Highway 127 Corridor Sale. The sale spans 630 miles and 5 states and runs directly through Crossville. It happens every August and will even be featured on HGTV this coming Tuesday morning at 11 am. Our hotel was filled to capacity with shoppers from all over the US. It is always a lot of fun! I did not have too much time to browse but did come home with a sweet new bird bath for our front yard!
