And the Love Continues . . .

And the love continues, even after 38 years of marriage! When we told our waitress we were celebrating our anniversary, she said, "Oh, want a free sundae?"

"Well, yeah!"

She brought the treat to our table with a candle in the middle. Nice touch after a ribeye dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse.

Next stop--Hale Springs Inn, a historic B & B in Rogersville, TN, the second oldest town in Tennessee.

The view from the back. A side garden with gazebo offered a place for weddings, receptions, or parties. 


A short walk around town revealed the home of Tennessee's first newspaper. As a writer, I just had to take a picture of the sign. :)

The Rogan room offered us a comfortable and luxurious stay, complete with complimentary cookies and coffee.  Most of the antique furnishings were provided by local residents.

A wonderul cubbie hole for writing and reading. Gave me opportunity to write a few pages in my children's missionary kid series. 

Later that evening, we passed an enormous field of sunflowers on the way to the Rogersville Playhouse to see the Disney kid production of Sleeping Beauty acted out by local residents. 

The view out the window beside our breakfast table. We enjoyed sausage quiche, french toast with bacon, orange slices, juice and coffee. 

My very full and satisfied groom. To 50 and beyond, sweetie!
