Today we were mostly on the road. Stopped in Jackson TN to see Casey Jones museum ad had lunch. Casey Jones was a train Engineer who stayed with a train even tho it cost him his life to save his passengers. A freight was on the wrong track as he came around a bend, he told his fireman to jump. The fireman lived another 57 years, Casey died, The fireman told people what Casey had done making him a legend in Tennessee and the world. Its a true story. The same thing happened about 20 years ago where I use to live. A train crew who were smokin funny things came upon on another train on their track in the dark of night, they all jumped including the Engineer to save their own necks. The train they hit , the signalman in the caboose was killed.  Think if I remember right the Engineer did a little time in the slammer and his career came to a halt that night.
   We stopped and had supper at the Loveless cafe which is famous for its biscuits, Been on the food Chanel, Travel Chanel, all the country stars eat their because of the chicken and biscuits . Its in a book I bought 500 places to eat at before you die. I am gonna try and hit them all ( Just kidding)
    Tonight the Koa had an entertainer show for free Johnny Counterfeit he was an impressionist doing politicians , music performers, and comedians , he was very good and the price was right
