The air is getting cooler, the days shorter and the nights longer.
No longer do we have our morning coffee on our deck or porch without a sweater (and maybe some fuzzy slippers).
ALL SIGNS POINT TO THE HOLIDAYS QUICKLY APPROACHING!
First on the Calendar - Thanksgiving!
I am thankful for all of these; plus so much more. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.
At the top of my list is each of you - and your continued support and friendship.
Each day when I talk to you or email you, I am reminded of that blessing.
So on this Thanksgiving,
I wish you the delicious smell of turkey, the scrumptious taste of pie, the company and love of family and friends.
Yes - You can have a second piece of pumpkin pie. It's okay!
I am also thankful for the wonderful mountain town that I live and work in.
This time of year provides a multitude of reasons.
As we have said many times, THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A MOUNTAIN CHRISTMAS and this one is no exception.
The holidays are a special time in Franklin.
Historic Downtown Franklin's WINTER WONDERLAND is a wonderful family event.
Enjoy music, free wagon and pony rides, refreshments, great downtown merchant sales and more!
This year's dates are November 26 and December 3, 5-8 p.m.
Don't miss the the Christmas Parade on November 27 at 3:00 p.m.
We are also blessed with the SMOKY MOUNTAIN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS.
It really shines at this time of year with wonderful music and shows for the entire family.
Always popular: The Nutcracker: December 16 at 7:30 p.m. and December 17 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m.
Kids will love the Polar Express Pajama Party on December 1. $5 tickets are sold at the door. Performance at 7:00; Santa arrives at 6:30.

After the parties, shopping and cooking, it's always great to come home ....
TO A MOUNTAIN HOME, THAT IS!
These are two beauties.
I wish you a joyous holiday season and a new year filled with peace, good health and happiness.
We'll talk again in 2017!
