It’s Those Little Things

–The Professor emailed me about this, but I didn’t see it.  Jagosaurus says most everything smart there is to say about it.  I would only add that when you run down Appalachia, you’re running down Dolly Parton.  So, think on that, America.

Jane Q. Public, how I wish I were you, tonight.  I must, however, walk to the grade school and back without dying before I walk around downtown looking for ghosts because I would be mortified if I died while on the ghost tour.  And I reiterate my question–are there no Fisk ghost stories?  Where are the people who know the Fisk ghost stories?

Just when you think penises aren’t getting their due

–My tomatoes have sprouted, too!  No peppers yet, though.  I kind of have a feeling it’s not going to be hot enough in here for them to sprout, which is okay.

–I think the tiny cat is looking better.  I could be wrong.  But I think the wet food has helped.

I’m hoping I can talk the Butcher into going to see the Edmunson exhibit at Cheekwood.  I’ve been to Cheekwood three times and every time they’ve not had any Edmunson pieces out and I have been sorely disappointed.  But now, if they’re going to have an exhibit of his pieces, they, by definition, have to have his pieces out!  Where I can see them!

  1. Sadly, we found out that the tours aren’t done this time of year, so no ghost stories for me. :(

    However, Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville is booking their 2009 tours (you can do 8 hours for $100 per person) now, so I need to make some reservations.

  2. I just want to say, Jane, that every time you post pictures or stories about ghosts, I am cheering. Do you ghost hunt a lot? And where do you think is the creepiest place in Nashville? I try to go to creepy places as often as I can and I still think the creepiest spot is the graveyard behind Purity Milk off of Murphreesboro.

  3. If you ever want to do the Carter House in Franklin, I’m in. I hear it’s haunted to the max. And i have a dog in the fight, my great great great grandfather fought in the Battle of Franklin (he survived the war, went home and lived into his eighties), so he might be knocking around over there… I hear it’s spectacular at Christmas – perhaps a trip then?

  4. I’ve never done a single bit of ghost hunting (I’ve got huge crush on Steve & Grant fro TAPS, though!). In fact, I question how I’ll handle the Waverly Hills tour. That stuff is great to read about and watch on tv, but I have no idea how I’ll react in that situation.

    Honestly, I’m wondering where the creepy places in town are, too. Generally I don’t find cemeteries to be particularly eerie (with the exception of that exposed coffin I spotted in one of the mausoleums at Mt. Olivet), though abandoned structures are a different story.

    I know the cemetery you mentioned, but I’ve never been. I may need to make a trip out there tomorrow afternoon. :)

  5. I saw the Diane Sawyer thing, and it was mostly content-free sensationalism. Silly me, I was hoping to learn something.

  6. Some people put their peppers on top of their water heaters or refrigerators, the warmth helps them sprout sooner. If your water heater is in your garage however it may not be warm enough. Some peppers can just be slow to sprout, last year my habaneros took forever, some seeds even molded.

  7. We put our pepper starts in the oven (turned off, of course) with the oven light on and the door mostly closed. (We have an electric stove; have no idea if that makes a difference.)
    Peppers take a loooong time to germinate, especially the hot ones (I think).

  8. Thanks for your kind words, Aunt B. I would like to have been more eloquent, but I’m already a status offender for having all my teeth so I figured I shouldn’t push my luck.
