Chattanooga is a surprisingly cute town. It sits right at a bend along the Tennessee River. We first drove through Lookout Mountain. There is a national park – Point Park- at the top where one of the civil war battles took place. It’s also the neighborhood where the older rich people live. Later we walked around downtown and stumbled upon a lady spinning yarn at her bookstore. It turns out Polly used to hand-make stuffed animals when she was younger but now runs her bookstore and spins yarn and knits. We chatted for awhile with her and her assistant Kevin- both such welcoming people. Then the next day I came back to learn how to spin yarn. It’s a bit harder than it looks and it takes a lot of practice. I spent the day with her talking and spinning and chatting with customers. What a fun way to spend your older years! At the end of the day, I ended up with a small irregular ball of yellow yarn. Someone might get a small irregular scarf for Christmas!
