Knoxville Moments...

I have taken lots of video...and these pics are taken with my cell phone.

Looks like your project is going fine and dandy, although the weather in Tennessee around this time of year might not be the best.

I'd like to see what you eventually get, discover and think about this trip.

I put my main comment under the Suttree post.

I love the reading list sent to the fan regarding BM.

Bridget, it's a Nokia, and the pics aren't too bad are they?

Tweetey, these folks are wonderful, we really had a lot in common and some really good laughs. It was one of those trips of a lifetime!

X. Dell, I also got some great video which I will try to find and load here. Still tired from the trip...but you're right, the project is going great!

Mister Anchovy, I thought of you many times last week. The locations of Harrogates "house", where Suttre staggered were wonderful. Locations from the novel "The Road" were cool...the father and son must have been walking for years! There is a lot of fishing, but the water is polluted...

Underground Baker, I just got home yesterday morning...I wish you were with me, what a howl!

L.M. I know the crosshairs are weird huh? That is a new development. Fortunately lots of video tape too!

Martha, it's the season, summer is more active than winter when it comes to blog time, I think. Thanks for stopping by...we'll catch up and inspirtion comes and goes yes?
