Tennessee Homecoming

What is the magic about Jonesborough, TN on the first week-end of October? That's the week-end of the National Storytelling Festival.

People from all walks of life and all parts of the country - from other countries too - are drawn to Jonesborough because they share a love of stories and storytelling.

And often its to meet up with friends.

Last year Granny Sue and I stopped and hugged and chatted on the street. Jim snapped a picture to remind us of that moment. Granny Sue says she won't make it physically to TN this year but I know she will be there in spirit.

And I will check out the familiar hand painted signs and colorful decorations folks use to spruce things up and welcome everyone

It may be their hometown but folks in Jonesborough share it with us.

They know we feel like we are coming home.

Ahh, now I really WANT to go. (It's just the packing and driving 10 hours part I'm less crazy about ;-).

I wish I could be there, Ellouise. But if we do travel next weekend it will be to my niece's wedding in Maryland. I'm just quailing at the thought of how much gas that will be.

Yall have fun! I'll be sitting here wishing I was there.
