We Sure Grow Them Bright Down Here!

Our little 'Ville is just like any other town, except you hear more about pettier types of crime. Let's face it, the paper has to report something.

But imagine my surprise about reading in our local paper and hearing on the Nashville news that a local police officer left her purse locked in her personal vehicle, and it *gasp* got stolen. Big surprise. That is the most often heard warning around here, don't leave your valuables locked in your car. Not a week goes by that someone's car isn't broken into.

Fortunately for her, her purse and the *alleged* thieves were found.

Ebeneezer Never Could Sneezer

Does anyone besides me remember that old kid's story about Ebeneezer the war vet who had his nose blown off and one of his greatest regrets was that he no longer could sneeze?  I would gladly change places with him right about now.  When I get a sinus cold, I suffer from extreme light sensitivity and sometimes even wearing sunglasses doesn't help.  I'm glad I had a few blogs sitting in the queue waiting to be published.

I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday as I sneezed celebrated the 30th anniversary of my 28th birthday.

A Taste of Tennessee - Village Kitchen

One place DH and I would like to eat at more is The Village Kitchen here in Cookeville. They have great food. The last time we ate there, we had something we hadn't had since we were in Michigan - broasted chicken. Oh, it was yummy.

Here's the thing about this little ville - there is a dearth of chicken places. Don't get me wrong, we do have a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Church's Chicken. KFC is ok and I don't know how Church's stays open. Church's took over the site of Mrs. Winners Chicken, which was inconsistent. But, hey, this is the south, and there are no local chicken places at all.

Back to Village Kitchen. The food is great. And the mashed potatoes are real, not instant. But they have cafe hours and usually close around 2 pm on weekdays and Saturday. Fridays they are open later because they have their all you can eat catfish. So we have to plan a meal there so we get there before they close. But so worth the trip.
