We went to Chattanooga and had a ball this past week - the grandson, daughter, and myself went (hubby decided to stay home and watch the Masters). Daughter had a free night at the Sheraton so we stayed there - we ordered room service (yep) - swam at the pool hotel - had a cupcake at the Chattanooga Cupcake Store - had an extremely interesting history lesson about the city of Chattanooga which was quite interesting and rode the Chattanooga Dukw - pronounced duck. A man who has served in the armed forces probably knows what one of these are. It is a truck and a boat!
The truck/boat drives on the land at about 60 mph and in the water at 3 knots. Slow! Men in the service hated it because as they were coming to another country to fight - they came in so slow the enemies could shoot them easily - they called themselves - "Sitting Ducks" - and this is where the name came from. We loved our guide and he let anyone who wanted drive the boats - and of course my gs raised his hand right away and drove first!
This was NOT our trip but an example of our trip - I will post our pictures tomorrow on Show and Tail.
Okay - did you know that RC Cola - Moon Pies - Krystal - and Little Debbie were all founded in Chattanooga?
Good thought for the day:
