THIS TRIP, WE REALLY MADE NO DEFINITE
PLANS OTHER THAN GO TO EAT AT THE MILL
AND TO  GO WALKING AROUND THE
AQUARIUM AND DOWN THE STRIP.  WE
DEFINITELY DID THIS. THE WEATHER IN
THE GATLINBURG AREA WAS WHAT I CALL
"HOT CHOCOLATE" WEATHER.  IT WAS
COLD ENOUGH FOR A GOOD COAT,CAP
OR SCARF, GLOVES AND YOU STAYED  
WARM ENOUGH.. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN 
WALKING DOWN THE STRIP.  THERE WAS
SO MUCH TO SEE.  WE WATCHED A TAFFY
MASTER MAKE TAFFY.THIS WAS VERY 
INTERESTING.  HE MADE IT LOOK SO EASY. 
WHILE WE WERE THERE HE MADE CHERRY
TAFFY AND GAVE OUT SAMPLES (SO, WARM
AND GOOEY!)  I, ALSO, BOUGHT SOME MAPLE
FUDGE. SO, GOOD!  

WE ATE AT SEVERAL OTHER PLACES
BESIDES THE MILL, INCLUDING THE WOOD
GRILL.  WE, ALSO, ATE AT JOHNNY ROCKETS. 
THAT WAS A REAL TREAT.... ESPECIALLY FOR 
OUR SWEETHEART.  OF COURSE, SHE
WAS MADE OVER AND GOT TO PICK OUT
ANY COLOR OF BALLOONS SHE WANTED.  
A LOT OF PEOPLE HAD COME TO ENJOY
THE STRIP, TOO. WE RODE THE CHAIR LIFT.
WE BOUGHT THE TICKETS THAT ALLOWED
US TO RIDE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANTED
FOR THE DAY.

WE, ALSO, WENT INSIDE A COURT YARD
WHERE LIVE MUSIC WAS PLAYING.  IT
MUST HAVE BEEN THE MOONSHINE
OUTLET.  I HAD NEVER SEEN SO MANY
THINGS MADE OUT OF MOONSHINE!! 
THERE WAS OLD TRUCKS AND CARS IN
THERE.  SO NEAT... SOME I HAD NEVER
SEEN BEFORE   WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT IS
LEGAL IN TO SELL AND BUY MOONSHINE
IN GATLINBURG? WELL, IT IS.. 

THE ONE THING I MISSED MORE THAN
ANYTHING WAS... THE CHRISTMAS
CAROLERS.  WE WENT THREE TIMES
TO THE STRIP AND NOT ONE TIME DID WE
SEE OR HEAR ANY.  THE LIGHTS WERE
WONDERFUL.

I THINK OUR DAUGHTER-IN-LAW SUMMED
UP THE STRIP PRETTY ACURATELY... "THIS
IS LIKE BEING AT A BIG STATE FAIR!"

THE WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS, THIS
YEAR, WAS ONE OF BEING WITH LOVED
ONES.  LORD, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
