NASHVILLE – IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT THE MUSIC – NASHVILLE , TENNESSEE – THE OPRY MILLS MALL .

You  and  your  sister  are  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Nashville ,  Tennessee  of  all  places .

You  all  are  going  to  a  Tennessee  Titans  football  game  and  a  Nashville  Predators  hockey  game  while  you’re  here .

But  that’s  later  on  in  your  tour  of  Music  City .

The  two  of  you  are  at  the  Nashville  Transit  Center  waiting  for  the  bus  to  take  you  to  one  of  the  largest  malls  in  the  South ,  the  Opry  Mills  Mall .

The  bus  dropped  you  off  in  front  of  the  Mall .

The  bus  did  pass  by  the  famous  Opryland  Resort  Hotel ,  but  the  two  of  you  don’t  want  to  see  that .

Maybe  you’ll  see  it  the  next  time  you’re  in  Nashville .

Yeah ,  there  will  be  a  next  trip  to  Nashville .

But  that’s  then ,  this  is  now .

Neither  of  you  is  really  into  doing   exercises  or  that  power walking  stuff  around  a  mall ,  but  since  you’ve  come  inside  the  mall ,  that’s  all  you’ve  seen  people  do.

Brisk  walking ,  not  shopping .

The  shops  in  the  mall  may  open  at  10 am ,  but  it’s  9:15 am  and  folks  didn’t  get  that  memo  that  this  is  Opry  Mills  Mall ,  not  Opry  Mills  Fitness  Center?

This  is  a  really  big  mall  and  first  things  the  two  of  you  notice  is  that  carousel  right  in  the  middle  of  the  mall .

You  both  figure  that  this  is  to  keep  the  kiddies  happy  and  occupied  while  the  grownups  are  shopping  until  they  drop .

But  as  the  day  goes  on  a  lot  of  adults  are  on  the  carousel  as  well .

Two  of  which  are  you  and  your  sister  because  riding  on  it  looks  like  so  much  fun .

You  both  want  to  ride  on  this  carousel  all  day ,  but  this  is  a  mall ,  and  those  shoes  and  handbags  that  you  all  saw  in  a  couple  of  the  stores   have  both  of  your  names  on  them .

This  is  a  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  and  that  Nashville  Predators  team  store  have  clothes  that  DEFINITELY  have  both  your  names  on  it .

While  you  both  are  shopping  in  yet  another  store ,  your  sister  decides  that  the  two  of  you  should  go  back  to  the  Grand  Ole  Opry  since  you  had  such  a  great  time  on  the  tour  and  it’s  right  across  the  street  from  the  mall .

As  tempting  as  that  sounds ,  you  have  to  pass .

Visiting  the  Opry  Mills  Mall  is  enough  for  today .
