    Wow...where'd the time go???

    The dinner meet is this Saturday and we haven't decided on where we're going.

    We need some suggestions from the troops. cdq3 has suggested the Jumbo House in Columbia. Any others?

    Strattons in Ashland City has announced they are winding down. :cry If you don't go soon, you'll miss out on a '50s style burgers and shake diner. It has been crazy busy the last few times I passed it, everyone trying to get there one more time.

    I'll miss 'em.

    well, I am late to this thread and I have not read all the previous posts (I'm lazy that way), so forgive me if this has already been done

    but I would suggest Stratton's in Ashland City

    It closes at the end of this month. They're going to tear it down and build a Walgreens.

    it doesn't matter to me, though. I already have plans for this Saturday.

    Strattons sounds good to me, especially since it won't be around much longer.


    Anyone got any objections or another suggestion?

    4:00 PM

    early enough to beat the dinner crowd and give longer distance riders time to get home before it's too dark.


    From the link below...

    8-21-10 at 4:00PM

    Strattons

    295 South Main Street
    Ashland City, TN 37015-1611
    (615) 792-9177



    After 38 years this Ashland City landmark
    is closing Sept 1st. This may be your last chance to eat there. This is a true classic 50's style diner which gets rave reviews.

    I sure hate to hear Strattons is giving way to drug dealers.

    I'd love to be there to see 'em off, but I'm a hair out of bounds

    yes sir,, thats sad! i guess thats why i love to do the job i do now. the crack heads, meth heads and scum are all over now days. i love to help pepole but some days it seems its a loosing battle.(support your local police dpt, they do try) if you thank shooting down a dirt road at 70mph is dangerous, try taking on a few drug heads with guns... they do it everyday for verry little pay all to keep our small town USA safe.

    were trying man ! were just a bit out numbered now days

    Alright...what is it.

    At first I thought it was a raven, but the tail doesn't look right. Then I thought it was a gull but the wings aren't right. It still looks ocean going though...

    Well, I guess its a gull but I thought their wings were more solid looking and they didn't have a forked tail.

    Also, I didn't realize they could still fly covered in oil like that.

    I sure wish I could see what these photos actually look like. My laptop screen is just about awful when it comes to photo editing.

    And correct sir...it's a gull. Haven't seen much beyond them and pelicans so far...save a few cicadas.

    Direct from the Redneck Riviera.

    I had to come this far to find a place. Everything I wanted from Orange Beach to Sandestin was booked. Looks like the Gulf's tourista business is back! Down here on the 'Riviera', however, it's about 25% occupancy...about what it should be this time of year. Just how pappa likes it :deal

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm late for my evening beach hike :D

    Man, just looking at those peirs makes me hungry. One of my favorite things when the family goes on vacations down there is to stay some place close to a public peir. I'll spend my time fishing while the wife lays around in the sand. Meet back in the evenings and cook up what I've caught while drinking frosty beverages.

    skrimps, crabs, scallops, bacon, alfredo, etc.

    I let the pros do the catchin'. I don't tend to catch good, eatable fishes off the piers. Plus it's hotter 'n a 2 dollar pistol most of the time the sun's out.

    And in other news, owners of BP stock will be glad to see corporate's latest cost cutting measures in the cleanup effort...recycled roofing for the golf carts! :deal

    It's refreshing to see 'em wearing seatbelts. Awful things can happen at 1 MPH. I mean, always getting cut off by little ol' ladies behind walkers...it's mayhem out there I tell ya
