Six days of sightseeing, shopping and visiting with family
Brother Ed and 'wife Marty arrieved from Minneapolis this past Wednesday...'first time they've been to Alabama since Bob and I moved here. They came to Dallas last summer...prior to that it had been several years since we visited.
He did some work around my house for me...installed a ceiling fan/light fixture in my little "work room" and spent a few hours every day cleaning up my computer...seems to have gotten rid of most of the problems I was having. Marty enjoys reading so whenever we weren't running around she spent her spare time engrossed in a book.
On Saturday we had resevations in Fayetteville, Tn. for lunch at Miss Bobo's.. Originally built in 1867 and named the Salmon House, it served as a traveler’s hotel, operated by Dr. E.Y. Salmon. In 1908, Jack and Mary Bobo purchased the property and named it the Bobo Hotel. Miss Mary Bobo ran the boarding house until her death in 1983, just a few days before her 102nd birthday. The property was then purchased by the Jack Daniels Company.
Miss Bobo's is now run under the direction of Jack Daniel's great-great niece, Miss Lynne Tolley.
"Lynchburg is the seat of Moore County, the smallest county in Tennessee. Even though it’s home to the Jack Daniels Distillery, it’s a dry county and has been ever since Prohibition. And while the Distillery may be the main attraction here, you don't want to miss other local favorites like lunch at Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House and a trip to the Lynchburg Hardware And General Store."
