Coming Soon-Another Thelma & Louise Adventure

(A/K/A Lady Sparkle and Magnolia Blossom)

Lady Sparkle and I will be taking Indiana by storm once again and you're invited to hop along for the ride.  We have planned our adventure for Saturday, October 6th in Nashville, IN.  Nashville is a beautiful artisan's community that will be absolutely bustling with arts, crafts and fall colors. 

Check out my blog from last year<  and Lady Sparkle's<

Lady Sparkle (a/k/a Thelma) and I will be staying in nearby Columbus at the LaQuinta, about 20 minutes away.  When I investigated hotels, the Comfort Inn in Nashville was very pricey due to the prime season and I didn't see any double bed rooms available.  Since most of the bed & breakfasts and cabin lodging were also booked, I believe Nashville will be pretty crowded that weekend.

We will be having lunch at the Colony Inn Restaurant located at 105 S. Van Buren in Nashville at 11:00 a.m., meeting early to avoid a long wait for a table. 

This is somewhat of an impromptu meet up, but Sparkle Britches and I will be in Nashville with bells on.  (LS don't forget to bring the bells.)  Ahem... that's an inside joke we'll have to let you in on later.

Anyone wishing to meet up with us is more than welcome.  Please contact me via email at if you think you may be coming. 

On the road again... (singing, albeit a little off-key)

Bail money would be greatly appreciated. Just sayin'.
Sep. 12, 2012 9:32 pm
Wish I could join you. Could you swing by Southern California? I could have my bags packed and ready. Have a roaring good time!
Sep. 12, 2012 9:33 pm
You should change your plans to the west coast, I'll crash your party. I'm sure the others out here would too! You two have fun.
Sep. 12, 2012 9:36 pm
Dang it BN and BD, we'd love to head your way. Heck, if we could afford it, we'd be doing the southern roundup and west coast. Hehe, instead I priceline the hotel to get the best deal.
Sep. 13, 2012 4:56 am
Gosh, darn! I would SOOOO be there in a heartbeat if I could. Nashville has NO idea what lies ahead! Have so much fun! I will love to read the results of this venture!
Sep. 13, 2012 5:04 am
Marianne, I would make sure there was room in the back seat for you. No need to ride in the trunk!
Sep. 13, 2012 6:12 am
Nashville is on my bucket list. I want to see the Grand Ol Opry and hop on the General Jackson show boat, though RNGrampa says I cannot fish from that boat :( I figure the captain could select a nice spot to anchor so I could fish. If I throw up my thumb and start hitchhiking now, I COULD possibly meet you there. Hope you 2 have a great time as I know you will. I could stash away some bail money, but I am sure Sparkle Britches could crochet up some nice hand cuff warmers or fuzzy gun holsters to bribe the local officers with:P
Sep. 13, 2012 6:46 am
Magnolia-enjoy the trip. I will look forward to reading about your adventures.
Sep. 13, 2012 9:31 am
Very excited! Nashville, IN is a really nice place to visit. Note to self. . .find more bells :) Looking forward to meeting some new faces! :) Great job Louise :)
Sep. 13, 2012 10:00 am
Since I've been there, I KNOW exactly what a wonderful time you two are going to have. (I love that place) But, please... no "Cliff Diving!" Love you both tons, Hugs from the PNW.
Sep. 13, 2012 11:04 am
Aw shucks....I would love to be on this adventure. Safe travels and hugs to both of my girls :)
Sep. 13, 2012 11:56 am
MB - heads up for an email coming your way... :)
Sep. 13, 2012 11:56 am
well now, good thing I did not make up a sign and start hitching to Nashville, I would have gone to the wrong one, Indiana-gotcha not Tenessee:P
Sep. 13, 2012 1:31 pm
Have a good time and stay safe.
Sep. 13, 2012 3:06 pm
RNG, last year when I told my DH we were going to Nashville, he didn't realize it wasn't Tennessee until I got back, LOL!
Sep. 13, 2012 5:04 pm
LOLOL! OK bail money fund being started!
Sep. 13, 2012 6:55 pm
Ooh! So jealous. I used to love going there when I was on my travel nursing assignment in Columbus and Indy. I can't think of anything that would be more of a hoot than going there with you two fun gals. Maybe Mom and I will meet you out there next year. That would be fun! Have a great time. I miss you guys!
Sep. 13, 2012 7:27 pm
Lela, you can be sure we will keep you posted on our adventure.
Sep. 13, 2012 7:28 pm
Candice & Christine - how cool would that be to have you return to your old stomping grounds with Thelma & Louise in tow? One of these day... Love ya both!
Sep. 13, 2012 7:29 pm
Thanks Manella! We'll have a great time.
Sep. 13, 2012 7:29 pm
Cat, keep that bail money close at hand. We may just need it.
Sep. 13, 2012 7:30 pm
MBM... checked out your email. Keep in touch!
Sep. 14, 2012 10:04 am
Ooh, I wish. Maybe we'll shoot for next year. Maybe it would be worth it to wind up behind bars if you'd come with the bail money!
Sep. 14, 2012 1:29 pm
Just don't buy and orange liquer LOL!
Sep. 14, 2012 2:05 pm
Looking forward to joining you for a fun day in Nashville IN. Wear your walking shoes. We'll probably have to walk a mile from the cars! Lots of people in the fall in the Hills of Brown County.
Sep. 14, 2012 2:15 pm
LOL!!! What Julie said...
Sep. 14, 2012 2:35 pm
Ditto what Julie & Candice said! LOL!
Sep. 14, 2012 2:37 pm
Whee doggies and Yahoooooo - - it's that time of year again - Thelma and Louise are hittin the road and lookin for a good time! And look-out below - - - they may start out for Nashville Indiana but wind up in Tennessee - - either way I'll have bail money wired to both places just in case. . . . you never know with those two. I remember the pics from last year - - what a trip - - - they went slap off the radar - - we had AR peeps all over trying to keep up with'em . . . but they're too fast and furious . . . who's your mama now????? OK Sparkle and Mags (aka Thelma & Louise) - - keep the pedal to the metal and when you cross the Florida line - I'll be waitin for ya!!! You go girls!!!!
Sep. 14, 2012 3:03 pm
We have a confirmed cohort in crime, Indiana Peggy. She lives close to Nashville so she know all the best escape routes.
Sep. 14, 2012 3:04 pm
I'm not sure about orange liqueur, but there may be wine involved.
Sep. 14, 2012 3:05 pm
My dear luv2cook I know I can always count on you for bail money. We are locked and loaded and ready to roll. I wish we could keep on going to Florida!
Sep. 14, 2012 3:06 pm
Peggy, I'm afraid we were spoiled when we went last year. Off-season and parking was free and plentiful.
Sep. 14, 2012 3:10 pm
Who's drivin? Who's ridin shotgun? And who's the look-out scout? This is a winning combo - look out Nashville - - here they come!!!
Sep. 14, 2012 3:13 pm
Throw all the money and let's roll'em again - WHEN YOU'RE HOT - - YOU'RE HOT!!!
Sep. 14, 2012 3:14 pm
That should be "Throw all the money IN and let's roll'em again" - - I had one too many hot flashes - LOL!!
Sep. 15, 2012 3:41 am
Darn...meant "any" orange liquer....hiccup!
Sep. 15, 2012 6:46 am
Yes, October in Nashville will be VERY different from December in Nashville. If the colors have started and the day is nice, it will be a parade of cars on 135 and the sidewalks will be absolutely jammed with tourists (that'd be us)in town. Be sure to leave really early to arrive at 11.
Sep. 15, 2012 6:54 am
Jealous, but I hope you have a great day! Miss you!
Sep. 15, 2012 8:36 pm
luv2cook, I'm driving and Lady Sparkle's riding shotgun. Indiana Peggy will clear a path through the crowds and meet us there.
Sep. 15, 2012 8:37 pm
Bibi, we'll have a great time. Miss you too dear friend.
Sep. 16, 2012 4:29 pm
Magnolia Blossom that sounds like a blast. Have a great time and tell us all about it afterward.
Sep. 17, 2012 4:17 pm
You bet! Thanks O.C.!
Sep. 17, 2012 8:58 pm
BBAAHHAA GOD D@MB WISH I COULD BE THERE TOO!! Sorry, no offence to anyone:) I just get excited. Sounds like You will be having FUN!! DRIVE SAFE!! LOVE YOU
Sep. 17, 2012 9:01 pm
Oh and here's my 10 bucks for Bail!!
Sep. 17, 2012 9:03 pm
Sure wish I could make it! Sounds like a delightful town and a couple crazy gals having a ball!! Have fun!
Sep. 17, 2012 9:49 pm
I saw a few pictures on the WWW. Looks like a lovely little town;)
Sep. 18, 2012 9:58 am
Patty Cakes-wish you could tag along. Hehe, we'll gladly take the ten bucks, just in case. LOL!
Sep. 18, 2012 9:59 am
Thanks mickdee! One day we will meet!
Sep. 20, 2012 12:26 pm
Dunno but I have a feeling you are going to need more bail money :)(:
Sep. 20, 2012 3:01 pm
Hehe, you know us too well...
Sep. 20, 2012 3:50 pm
I was hoping it was the other Nashville:(. Y'all have fun!!!!!!
Sep. 21, 2012 7:35 pm
Thanks for stopping in Shanon. I've been to your Nashville a couple of times, but only as a quick stop when heading on to somewhere else.
Sep. 29, 2012 7:54 am
Hi, So with IP, it's gone from thelma and Louise to the 3 stoogies has it.????!!!!!!!. Or the Andrews sisters but sisters of what???/. Answers on a postcard please. cheers.
Sep. 29, 2012 8:53 am
Don - that could wind up being mugshots! I don't know about IP or LS, but I don't think I can hold up the other end of the Andrews Sisters gig. Maybe the 3 Musketeers?
Sep. 29, 2012 10:07 am
Hi, OK. You play D'artangnan, the guapa. cheers.
Sep. 29, 2012 1:59 pm
Wow! Sounds like you're ready for anything! Look out Nashville! Can hardly wait to hear about your adventures and see the photos. Safe travels!!
