Renfro Valley… a Memory Revisited…

We left for Gatlinburg, TN and Cherokee, NC… for a mini vacation…

With Bobby doing his treatments… we thought a few days would be good!…

On the way we pass Renfro Valley… http://www.renfrovalley.com/

It is where I had my picture taken when I was about three years old…

Just old enough to remember a few details… and this photo… that was taken in front of the barn where they had country music shows…

Still… a chubby little girl… but, I thought I was cute!…

The new photo was taken at about the same place…

Although this is called “the old barn”… since a new one has been built…

We wandered the grounds… that now has  gift shops… and displays…

They still have country music shows on the weekends…

An original voting box… 3 different locks… 3 different keys… three different people to open…

I would think more accurate and honest than our system now…
