well, I am late to this thread and I have not read all the previous posts (I'm lazy that way), so forgive me if this has already been done

but I would suggest Stratton's in Ashland City

It closes at the end of this month. They're going to tear it down and build a Walgreens.

it doesn't matter to me, though. I already have plans for this Saturday.

Strattons sounds good to me, especially since it won't be around much longer.


Anyone got any objections or another suggestion?

4:00 PM

early enough to beat the dinner crowd and give longer distance riders time to get home before it's too dark.


From the link below...

8-21-10 at 4:00PM

Strattons

295 South Main Street
Ashland City, TN 37015-1611
(615) 792-9177



After 38 years this Ashland City landmark
is closing Sept 1st. This may be your last chance to eat there. This is a true classic 50's style diner which gets rave reviews.

I sure hate to hear Strattons is giving way to drug dealers.

I'd love to be there to see 'em off, but I'm a hair out of bounds

yes sir,, thats sad! i guess thats why i love to do the job i do now. the crack heads, meth heads and scum are all over now days. i love to help pepole but some days it seems its a loosing battle.(support your local police dpt, they do try) if you thank shooting down a dirt road at 70mph is dangerous, try taking on a few drug heads with guns... they do it everyday for verry little pay all to keep our small town USA safe.

were trying man ! were just a bit out numbered now days

Alright...what is it.

At first I thought it was a raven, but the tail doesn't look right. Then I thought it was a gull but the wings aren't right. It still looks ocean going though...

Well, I guess its a gull but I thought their wings were more solid looking and they didn't have a forked tail.

Also, I didn't realize they could still fly covered in oil like that.

I sure wish I could see what these photos actually look like. My laptop screen is just about awful when it comes to photo editing.

And correct sir...it's a gull. Haven't seen much beyond them and pelicans so far...save a few cicadas.

Direct from the Redneck Riviera.



I had to come this far to find a place. Everything I wanted from Orange Beach to Sandestin was booked. Looks like the Gulf's tourista business is back! Down here on the 'Riviera', however, it's about 25% occupancy...about what it should be this time of year. Just how pappa likes it

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm late for my evening beach hike

Man, just looking at those peirs makes me hungry. One of my favorite things when the family goes on vacations down there is to stay some place close to a public peir. I'll spend my time fishing while the wife lays around in the sand. Meet back in the evenings and cook up what I've caught while drinking frosty beverages.

nom nom nom

Omm nom nom indeed



skrimps, crabs, scallops, bacon, alfredo, etc.

I let the pros do the catchin'. I don't tend to catch good, eatable fishes off the piers. Plus it's hotter 'n a 2 dollar pistol most of the time the sun's out.

And in other news, owners of BP stock will be glad to see corporate's latest cost cutting measures in the cleanup effort...recycled roofing for the golf carts!



It's refreshing to see 'em wearing seatbelts. Awful things can happen at 1 MPH. I mean, always getting cut off by little ol' ladies behind walkers...it's mayhem out there I tell ya
