Lee Greenwood. Elvis Presley. Dolly Parton. That’s right, I am in Pigeon Forge, TN. It is the only place on the planet where it is a requirment to have an American Flag shirt. I don’t know if you have ever been to this mecca of country fun, but there is something for every red-blooded, church-goin’ American.
I have also learned that if I ever want to truly “arrive”, then I need to open my own theater — just like the Smith family. I am talking about Charlie, Jim and let us not forget Charlie Bob — I am pretty sure he is the comedian of the Smith brothers. I think you get your own theater after having sold 1,000,000 CD’s from a Rubbermaid table.
So I am going to eat at an all-you-can-eat pancake bar, ride some go-karts, shake hands with an Elvis impersonator, put on my American Flag shirt and take a little time off.
