Nashville, TN and St. Louis, MO

We went to the Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville,Tennessee. It was like a mini-concert with the live country music and stage and lights and dancers. By the way, the dancers were the audience, including me. Yep, I got out on the dance floor and line danced with 20 other people.

We went to Lookout Mountain and saw the highest incline railway in the world, although we didn’t ride on its mile-long journey. Tucker left us 5 days ago but it seems like a month since he left.

We went to Fort Campbell and stayed there for 3 days doing nothing but school, school, school, and shotgun shooting. Yes, it is not the first time that I have shot a gun but the first shotgun that I have ever shot. I caught on quickly and soon passed Will, Ben, and Sam in the low tower, and high tower. Will shot better at doubles (which is both) and I tried once but could only destroy the first. The clay pigeons that we were shooting usually were obliterated, except when Ben or Sam was shooting. Even though the 20 gauge makes a bigger cloud I seem to shoot better with the 4-10. It kicks less you know, and is easier to hold than the 20 gauge.

Now we’re in St. Louis, Missouri at the Piatak’s house. Mr. and Mrs. Piatak have 4 girls and no boys. Their names are Kelly age 9, Nicole age 11, Catherine age 13, and Mary age 14. We’re staying at their house for another day, and today is the 3rd day. We’re having lots of fun with the girls playing basketball and wii.

We went to the St. Louis Arch and rode all the way to the top in a capsule that most people would get claustrophobic in. Kelly went with her mom to a soccer tournament for the weekend and will come back soon from Kansas. We went to a really nice neighborhood in St. Louis. Everything was Red, Green, and White. The whole neighborhood was Italian. We ate at a really nice Italian restaurant and waited an hour to get a table, and then another hour for a waiter, then another hour for the food but it was worth it because I had a good book to read and the food was great and we got to socialize with the girls for a while. They’re all very pretty and look much older and mature than most other girls their age, in a good way. Anyway we’re having lots of fun and it’s getting so warm that we sleep with the air conditioner blowing on full in the R.V. They let us sleep in their house last night. Bless their hearts. Because it was HOT OUT HERE!
Bye I’m going to go play Mario Kart racing with the girls now.
