Since I've been "under the weather" this week and havent' gotten anything new to post, I went back thru my photos and found the ones I took last fall of the neighborhood that country super star George Jones lives in. It's right outside of Franklin TN and only has about 3 streets. All the homes are set on minimum acre lots, most of them on more. The only bad thing is that his home sets way back and has a lot of trees in front so you can't really see his house, just the entrance. In the winter it's much more visible.
(Sorry these aren't the best photos, but you get the idea)
It's kind of hard to tell but those are music notes on the gate
There is a bronze horse on each side of the stone columns
(This photo of his house is from the web)
Here are some other houses around the neighborhood
This next house was kind on interesting. Their design style was different to say the least. In front, there is a rose garden surrounded by a stone wall with 2 large lions on each side, a fountain in front of that and then on the side of the property, another pond with a fountain and a mermaid standing on her head!
Here's a close up of one of the lions and his "ball"(?)
She's standing on her head because......?
Ok, this was kind of weird, I don't know if any of you had ever had this happen, but after I took the picture of the house below and had moved down the street to take pics of the house above, a car flew up next to me and the woman driver rolled down her window and demanded to know if I took a pic of her house and why.
Needless to say I was caught off guard and just said "a because I liked it". She sat there for a minute and then drove off back to her house. That's her car in the driveway.
Makes me wonder what that was all about, did she think a was a spy, a private eye, or maybe a black mailer? That's her car in the driveway. At least she didn't shoot me or anything!
Till next time......
