Not a Valentine

DH is a sweet, sweet man. My friends and family will attest to that. He also doesn't believe in Valentine's day. I can count on one hand the times I've received any type of valentine from him.  It doesn't matter.  My birthday is 3 days after Valentine's day, and I'd much rather he remembered that.

We also share everything. Right now we are sharing a cold. How sweet!  Since he knew that wasn't the most romantic thing to give me, he showed up with a single, peach colored rose.  Just to make me feel better!

Do We Understand the Irony?

The kids in this county have barely completed two full weeks of school since Christmas vacation ended, due to the weather. To make up for all the days missed, it was decided the kids would attend on President's day instead of having the holiday.

Guess what?  There is a winter storm warning for the weekend including President's day. So, yep, it looks like the kids will get that holiday after all!

A Taste of Tennessee - Spanky's

When DH and I want local flavor, we eat in town at a neat little place called Spanky's. It is a very unprepossessing place with wood plank floors complete with holes. They have a covered patio where smoking is allowed, but the interior of Spanky's is smoke free.

If you go there at lunch time, you walk up to the window and place your own order. My favorite is their catfish sandwich and for a side - their roasted potatoes. They have other great selections, too! These aren't skimpy eats either! I've been known to pack up half my dinner and take it home. For your bread side, this place makes the best cheesy bread. It is to die for. 

After you've placed your order and given your name, you get your soft drink, or you can order something at the bar. This place has by far the best beer in the area. They actually serve stuff that isn't Miller or Budweiser.

Supper at Spanky's is like going to any other restaurant. They seat you and serve you. The worst thing about Spanky's is their funky parking. Being down by Tennessee Tech, where parking is a huge problem, lunch time can be a hit or miss parking experience. But the food is well worth it.
