Sharks in Tennessee and Other Oddities.

For today’s post I did something fun and decided to interview my family on their favorite and least favorite aspects of our new homeland.  

First, my husband.  “Honey, what is your favorite part of Tennessee?”  Husband says,
My favorite is the land (very exciting answer…)
“What is your least favorite?”
“The plumbing issues.”  We have had our fair share of those.

“Caleb, how about you, what is your favorite part of Tennessee?”
 “Are you putting this on your blog or something?”  
“Just answer the question”

“Uh, probably my favorite is the pond and the turtles. My least favorite is the mosquitos.” 

My favorite is the house.  It’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a home, old, exposed brick, tons of history, depth, character, iron beams from the Empire State building, beautiful land all around, I really love my house, God willing, it is my forever home.  Least favorite aspect, living out in the middle of nowhere with absolutely no one but the mail lady who sees me on a daily basis.  In other words, no one ever sees Jess looking very presentable anymore.  No makeup, no hair products, no flatiron, just hair in a ponytail, t-shirts, and sweat shorts, sweating like nobody’s business because our air conditioner died early on which is why date night has become so much more than just connecting with my husband, it’s showing my husband that his wife can actually amp it up in the attractiveness department occasionally.

Alright, back to business.  

“Tate, your favorite?”  
“Um, probably the cable” (we never had more than three channels in Michigan)
“Ok, I can see how that would be very important.”
Least favorite?
“The snakes.” 

Mya, Your favorite? “School is fun, but I don’t like the mosquitoes”  

Mabel? “I love deer, and bridges, and oceans, and McDonalds”  “Uh honey, we don’t have oceans…”  “Well, those water things in our backyard”  “That’s a river dear.”  “Oh, then I love the rivers….”  
Least favorite? “It’s too hot sometimes.”  

Josh, “What is your favorite thing about Tennessee?”  “My bed and the chickens” Ok…..
“What don’t you like?”  “I don’t like the snakes, the bears, the wolves, and the sharks.”  
Those sharks sure are pesky in Tennessee.  

“Jada, how about you? What do you like? “   
“I like my bed” (obviously sitting next to Josh) and cows”  
Wow, cows?  We don’t have cows….
“What don’t you like?”  
“I don’t like the mosquitos”  

Nope, none of us appreciate the mosquitos…   

“Luke, how about you?”

“ALL DONE! ALL DONE! ALL DONE!”

Just keep livin!!

  1. Sharks?
    Wow.. my knowledge of US geography is worse than I thought…
    😀

    And… iron beams from the Empire State building? I will think twice before going on top of it again, if some iron beams are missing…

  2. I love reading your blogs and I can just here Lucas saying all done all done. 🙂 I have enjoyed reading all your stories on your page also. See you at school soon! Ms.Chrissy
