The Manor on the Hill, Erwin, TN

Pickin’ and grinnin’ with his cuz

We spent two delightful days in the mountains of eastern Tennessee visiting with some of Leonard’s relatives whom  unfortunately, we rarely get a chance to see.  Leonard got a chance to play guitar with his cousin and coax some stories out of his aunt and uncle.

David, Dottie, Uncle Bernard and Aunt Margaret

Story tellin’ on the front porch

The men enjoyed a morning of golf while the ladies shopped and explored historic Jonesborough, the oldest city in Tennessee, built in 1779.    After meeting the men for lunch we did some sightseeing in the area before returning back up the mountain to enjoy the view, watch the birds and talk some more.

We all left early in the morning caravanning together, as we continued our journey north and west and they head off on another family adventure.    We all stopped for a picnic lunch at Cumberland Gap, where we discovered a troublesome tire that needed to be replaced and they continued on their way.  Many thanks for a great visit and I’m sure you will see our RV parked up in your driveway again sometime soon!

  1. I hope those coaxed stories are written down!

      Hi Judy, That is a Johnson TR-1. I call it my big Johnson :). It’s in a class or group of guitars often called back packers guitars. It’s perfect for our little RV.
