So....we decided to get the H outta' the house and get some fresh air in the east Tennessee countryside.
We travelled to Greeneville and toured the old town, and then drove farther east to Tennessee's oldest town, Jonesborough, where we walked the main street and basked in the old architecture and quaint shops.
The late afternoon drive back to Knoxville was punctuated by a stop at Chandler's---a southern comfort food haven---where we ordered fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, fried green tomatoes, mac and cheese and cornbread to slake our ravenous appetites. The glorious day and the wonderful dinner helped us regain our belief in our fellow man. well, at least a little.......
Come with me now as we travel the eastern part of "the Greenest State in the Land of the Free".......
