March 2018

March 2018

Why is March always so busy?? But who’s complaining – I had way too much fun this month.

It started out with cold rainy weather and a lot of feature assignments. Then Tennessee Volunteers basketball won the SEC Championship title. A new cathedral celebrated its dedication. I traveled to state basketball championships where I shot ten games in four days. Burt Reynolds was in town. The Big Ears Music Festival kept us all busy. Spring began popping up. Baseball and softball are in full swing.

I wish every month was this busy.
