This is actually Denver's airport. I could not find a picture of Memphis' airport. However, I am sure this was a stop for some of you as you came in from Japan!
Graceland, Elvis' home,and St. Jude's Children's Hospital. This place has a special place in our hearts. We have 3 children in our community who are currently being treated at St Jude's. One young lady is Miss Priss's teacher's aide's daughter (did you catch that?). She is now in remission and will graduate from high school in May. She is planning on running in the St. Jude's Hero marathon in December.
You can even check out a Broadway play at the Orpheum or
hear some jazz music on Beale Street.
From Memphis, you will head west on 64 until you hit Hwy. 100 and this will bring you straight into our little small town. If you love the outdoors or need to stretch your legs, I suggest you go to Chickasaw State Park. We love going there for a hike around the lake, riding horses or just playing around outside.
Our little town is right beside Chickasaw and, boy, are we booming!! My family has lived here for 6 years now and we have gone from one red light to three!!! Plus, they have just finished a by-pass around our little town so big truckers don't take out the red lights like they did one time. Stop by the house for a BBQ dinner unique to Chester County. You just missed the BBQ festival, but there is always BBQ to sell.
You can always hit our 1950's Bell's Drive-in Diner for "The Best Hamburger This Side of Heaven." They have been voted "Best Hamburger" in Tennessee!! However, you will need to bring cash with you - you really do step back in time, as they will take cash and checks (?)!!! Arrive between 11:00-11:30 for lunch or 4:3o for supper. This hometown diner is always full!!
Take a drive down Main Street and you will run into one of things we are famous for:
Our favorite thing about our small town is Freed-Hardeman University. This is where I met DH and where we came back to raise a family. DH works here and who knows if we will ever leave. The pay is not much but the rewards are too numerous to count!! Come the first week in February to hear lectures on the Bible from people all over the world or come the first weekend in April to see a student production called, Makin' Music, like none other. Whenever you want, come on down. FHU is always "teaching how to live and how to make a living."
We are also famous for being the home of Eddie Arnold . . . . . .
