Decided on a spur-of-the-moment after work drive on Saturday on the Natchez Trace Parkway. The fall colors are beginning to show and I was able to cruise down the parkway at the posted 40 mph limit with the windows down.
Lots of bicyclists out in both direction and many families at the stops taking in the fresh air and scenery. I drove about 40 miles or so from the Nashville Terminus on Highway 100 to very near Hohenwald on Highway 412.
I did not have my Canon Rebel so I took all of these photos with my Samsung Galaxy 5S phone.
Motley Crue performed their “final tour” at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on October 15, 2014 with the great Alice Cooper and the very little known The Raskins. The show was fantastic. Motley Crue had bombs, explosions, lots of fire and performed 20 classics and Tommy Lee topped it all off with a drum solo along his “CRUECIFLY” out over the middle of the arena.
Alice Cooper performed a full set as well, including most of his greatest hits and he also brought along Mary Ann (the boa), the electric chair and the guillotine. It was simply an amazing night of Rock and Roll music.

The Sam Davis Home and Plantation is located in Smyrna, Tennessee. This is the boyhood home of Sam and his family as well as his own personal home. The plantation features gorgeous mature magnolias, a cotton farm, several out cabins that were slave quarters as well as a smokehouse, kitchen and other outbuildings near the main house.
Sam Davis was a Confederate and he is deemed a “martyr” to the Confederate cause. Inscription on the rock wall outside the front gate calls him THE Confederate Hero.
