My days have been a blur of...
Job searches. Coffee. Taxes. Coffee. Filing for unemployment. Coffee. Interruptions from Hoop. Hoop dancing with the dog. Hoop telling me about something on T.V. Hoop asking me a billion-fucking-times what I'm doing. Hoop asking me to pluck his ear hair. Hoop barging in on me while I'm pooping. Me screaming at Hoop not to barge in on me while I'm pooping. No more coffee for Hoop. Me running into the wall while I'm trying to wrestle the coffee creamer out of Hoop's hands. Run Hoop Run.
And that was just TODAY.
Here are those sightseeing pictures I promised on Thursday.
The original full-scale replica was built in 1897 out of plaster for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. It was so popular, the city decided to leave it up until it became too dilapidated to enter. In 1920 it was rebuilt out of concrete and stands today as a museum. Unfortunately, it was closed the day we visited.
Nathan Bedford Forrest Statue
This monstrosity may look like it's on government property, as it faces a main highway, but I've been assured that it's not. As a monument to the founding father of the KKK, you can understand why this statue gets shot at and vandalized a lot.
Beautiful Park Tree
