I’m talking about Nashville of course. Music City! The place where every aspiring songwriter and performer alike, especially in the country music arena, want to be.
Our visit to Nashville was the length of 3 days, and we packed in as much as we could.
The highlights were the Bluebird Cafe, Grand Ole Opry two nights for two different type of programs, walking around the streets where the “action” is on Saturday, perusing Vanderbilt University, and eating at 4 famous and highly recommended places.
My next posts will be highlighting more about this city, culture, and places. But for now here are a couple pictures.
Winter is fast approaching and has arrived in some parts of the world. Here is a glimpse at some of the splendor of God’s creation through the colors of Autumn. All images have been contributed by readers of Globe Trottin Granny.

I grew up with being told the story of my Great Uncle Earl Van Ness, surviving the Arizona, serving through the entire war, and re-enlisting in the Army. Then only to be killed by a thug who was robbing him in his apartment in the middle of the night. This was only days after separating from the army. Thank you for your service, Great Uncle Earl.
My Uncle Earl Rufty, was named after him when he was just a young man. Uncle Earl Rufty also served in the Army in World War II. I am sorry I don’t have a picture of either of these great veterans.

Charles R. Couch, my father-in-law served in the Navy during World War II. His service time was on the USS Carroll (DE-171) Cannon-class destroyer escort , from commissioning in 1943 to de commissioning in November of 1945.
My husband, Daren R. Couch served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War era. His job was manning the control room of a Titan II missile.
I am thankful that the Titan II missile was never ordered to launch. It would be doubtful that we would be here today if it did.
My son Brandon R. Couch served in the United States Army. He served in the 82nd Airborne as a paratrooper. Brandon R. Couch
Thank you Veteran’s related, and unrelated, during war time, and non war time who have proudly served in the military, so we could continue to have freedom!

Trunk Fest being held at Kennesaw First Baptist Church, Kennesaw, Ga., Wed. Sept. 29, 2014, 5:30 – 7:00
If you live in the Kennesaw area be sure to travel to this year’s Trunk Fest this Wednesday, the 29th, from 5:30 – 7:00.
I have been involved with preparing 3 of the Trunks, and have heard leaks of what some of the other ones are. You and your kids are sure to enjoy. Also, this year, it is a separate event from the local Halloween night. So, kids can get double enjoyment, or just limit it to Trunk Fest where you know it is safe.
