Okay, so fall foliage is a little sparse so far. We saw a few colored trees on our car trip but it's just been too hot and dry here and the leaves are not changing. My friend Diana Cole and I went for a walk in Joe Wheeler Park and I picked some colored leaves and made this collage. Maybe on our way down the Tenn-Tom there will be some color.

The Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchberg ,Tennesse is definitely worth the trip. Jack's life story was very interesting. He was only 5'4" tall but dressed every elegantly so as to impress the ladies. He never married but had many lady friends. He talked a lot about his "Belle" and each of his ladies thought he was talking about them. However, his step-sister was named Belle and history believes he was talking about her. He started in the business when he was 13. A preacher who reared him sold the distillery to him when his followers said he had to be a preacher or own a distillery but he couldn't do both. .The entire process was very interesting....take a tour if you're by that way.
