Paris yet again

We spent Thanksgiving holiday in Paris again. But not the Paris we vacationed in August and I have written about here and here.
No, this was my husband’s hometown of Paris, Tennessee, located in the northwest corner of the state.  We primarily went back to see his ailing mother that is convalescing in a rehab nursing facility. His mother’s younger sister traveled back with us from California. We had Thanksgiving dinner with his brother's family (steak and lobster tails, an annual tradition).

Here are some pictures of Paris:

Paris, TN was in the news recently because of a horrible hate crime. A week before we traveled there, the owner of a health food store was beaten unconscious by three masked men who used anti-gay slurs before robbing him, writing “fag” on his forehead and finishing by trying to torch his store with gasoline.

Did you know that Paris, Tennessee has a winery too? For the last three out of four years, my husband has hosted a party there to catch up with all his grade school and high school friends he has reconnected with on Facebook. We had an enjoyable evening there.

We spent one afternoon visiting antique stores in nearby Murray, KY.

I don't get over here as often as I'd like, but I've known about you guys since 2005, when you first started the blog, and I've always enjoyed what you write.

I hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving in Paris (hate crime aside, of course). We look forward to our trip to your neck of the woods next month! :)
