Baptist Church in Kenton, TN. Prince's truck.
Hurt Reunion was held at the Baptist Church and we entered the festivities through the double doors on the left of the building on the right which led into the gym. In the gym were displays of photos and other old Hurt memorabilia.

In front of the church was the sign noting that it was the Obion County line. I stood on the line in front of the church and took photos.

Looking past the sign were these feed silos across from the church.

Kenton, Tennessee is famous for it's white squirrels. These signs are posted all around the little town.
The legend has it that gypsy spent the night in Kenton on a farm and they were so thankful of the hospitality that the gypsies gave the farmer a gift of two white squirrels.
Each time Prince and I happen to be in Kenton, we always ride around and look for white squirrels. Prince remembers when he was small his father taking him to a graveyard and they watched the white squirrels play for a long time. Usually we see several but this time we only saw one lone squirrel and he made a mad dash under a parked car as I started to take his picture.
The kitty justice is that it was the wrong time of day for white squirrels to appear or else they have become camera shy.

very wet Spring so far) The floods are receding slowly, thankfully.
