Opry at the Ryman

So the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Hubby and I went to the Opry at the Ryman.

We live approximately 150 miles north of Nashville; so, it's a pretty easy trip.

I have wanted to go for years, but just never "got around to it".    Sometimes the holidays can be a bit stressful for me; so, we decided to do something we have never done, and that's go somewhere for Thanksgiving weekend.

After dinner on Thanksgiving Day with my folks and Friday evening and Saturday morning spent with my son, daughter-in-law, and sweet little grandson, we took off midday for Nashville.

We stayed downtown,  just a two minute walk to the Ryman Auditorium and a two minute walk to a restaurant for supper before the show.

We were in the very last row, but luckily on the aisle, which is good for Hubby because he can use the extra space and could get up easily during commercial breaks to stretch.

We had a great view of the stage even though when I called to purchase the tickets the lovely lady I spoke to told me it was a limited view of the stage; however, we saw everything just fine.

The Ryman Auditorium is an old church, and it has pew seating.  The show lasted a little over two hours, and the time flew by!

It was a wonderful show and a wonderful experience.  If you haven't been, well, you should go.

It is a live radio show, with breaks for live commercials.  

It is a truly uplifting, toe-tapping good time.  It made me laugh; it made me cry; and it made me feel patriotic.

So  . . . these two can check The Grand Ole Opry off their "bucket list"!
