Nashville (The Real One!)

May 16

[Indiana, that is!  After Noblesville, it was time to visit the Super’s sister, Rita.  We were shocked, shocked as we drove up to her place to find a new house on the neighboring lot that had been vacant since Reetz moved into her classic square log home in 1972!  An 88-year old widower bought the lot and built a too modern house for this artist community. Oh, poopie butt!]

[When I say artist community, I mean artist community.  For a town of 1,000, it has a ginormous art gallery – let’s take a visit with The Biddies.]

[It had just featured our old friend and Rita’s long-time neighbor, Bill Zimmerman.  Bill died in November 2011 – hard to believe it was that long ago.  His wife Judy still lives down the street and dropped by for a visit our first night here.]

[And the Super and I enjoy three Zimmerman owl prints at home.  Bill also did the duck mobile.  🙂  ]
