Nashville is FINALLY back full force

I had to share it with y'all! The one thing left, the one undone, was our huge Opry Mills Mall. It was hearbreaking enough to see Opryland go, but to see it for naught with the mall under water, well, that was just unbearable. It supplied jobs, housed our huge IMAX, and was full of really great escape. But the Insurance Companies wouldn't fork over the dough to fix the mall. Honestly, I don't know why, don't care, don't wanna know. But... the Nashville Film Festival (Thank you Nicole Kidman!!! You've helped Nashville so much with your influence!!!!) is holding a benefit tonight. We're open again. Not fully open, but having the theaters back and some of the shops operating, gives us such hope!!! When I can go buy a pair of new shoes just 'cause, catch a flick, and then eat at the Rainforest cafe, I'll be home.

They're showing $2 movies along with the Film Festival. I am really interested to see the movie with Emma Watson, Judi Dench, Dominic Cooper, Kenneth Branaugh... Looks good.

Sounds like a good thing to me! Rob, I'm glad for you and all the other Nashvillians (Nashvillans, maybe?) who visited, shopped, walked, ate at-- and whatever else could be done there. Good for Nicole Kidman, too.

I'm so glad to see that Nashville is getting back to "full force". I mean, a gal should be able to go to the mall, watch a movie, buy some shoes and go to lunch.

Was close in 69 for Aviation tech school at Millington but didn't see much of the area. It rained that winter too and we played football in a foot or two of water. Glad things are getting right and looking up for you.
