Oh, my. It is cold. Not as old here as further north and east, but still cold. I got a great photo from Grandma Marti (Jed’s mother) today showing the Goldstones all wrapped up for an outdoor walk in the Maine deep freeze. Brrrr.
My morning and early afternoon was spent in downtown Nashville. Monica and I went with Janet to her Saturday morning volunteer job with the homeless. This takes place at the First Presbyterian Church which was started in 1849 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. The chapel was done in the Egyptian Revival architectural form and is one of the largest and best preserved examples in the United States.
The volunteer work for the homeless happens in a small room with outside access where folks come to buy copies of The Contributor newspaper that they can resell at a good profit. It was quite an interesting group of people who came in to buy the papers today . . . ,many colorful stories. And after that stint, Janet, Monica, Logan, another volunteer, and I headed down to Broadway to go to one of the bars on Honky Tonk Strip with live music. We went from that bar to the FGL (Florida-Georgia Line) where Monica’s very favorite musician was playing. Great afternoon in Nashville.
