We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Program For This Important Message

"Nash"ville is in Nashville for a visit with the Tennessee family. We're having a blast! What's not to love about food and family!? I hope to have some pics of the parade to share when I get home. See you then!
And now a word from our sponsors:

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts. ~Author Unknown

Family: A social unit where the father is concerned with parking space, the children with outer space, and the mother with closet space. ~Evan Esar

The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. ~Thomas Jefferson

The family - that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to. ~Dodie Smith

The informality of family life is a blessed condition that allows us to become our best while looking our worst. ~Marge Kennedy

Blessings to you!

Families are usually a mish-mosh. I like the Erma quote the best.

Hey, have a happy time. I love Nashville. Visit Andrew Jackson's home, it's a step back in time. (Although I'm not a big fan of someone who was avowed to killing all my Seminole ancestors.)

So glad you're having a good time!

Your quotes are wonderful, however, I think our branch of the family tree is mostly nuts.
