Winter seems to have finally settled in at our Lake turning everything cold and dreary.

Storm Clouds Over Paris Landing

Storm Clouds Over Paris Landing by Shelia Stigall

"Look for the Silver Lining" 

by Buddy Desylva, Jerome Kern, Jerry J Nowak.

Sung by Judy Garland

Look for the silver lining
Whenever a cloud appears in the blue
Remember somewhere the sun is shining
And so the right thing to do is make it shine for you

A heart full of joy and gladness
Will always banish sadness and strife
So always look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life

Well … our “lake” girl, Miss Tennessee Hannah Robison, may not have won the Miss America Pageant, but she certainly won our hearts and respect.

She did win the “America’s Choice” award, based on Facebook and Twitter votes which guaranteed her a spot in the top 15.  But we all know she would have made it there anyway.

She made it to the top 7 in the competition.  She also won a Gold “Duke of Edinburgh Award”, a STEM Scholarship, and was 1st runner up for the “Jean Bartel Quality of Life Award.”  Kind of shows you what type of girl our Hannah is.

Congratulations on your achievements Hannah!  We couldn’t be more proud of you!  Thank you for representing us!

Fishing Fun

Haven't heard yet who won the ABA Couples Tournament this weekend at Paris Landing, but David and Sharon Seaton of the Fishtale Lodge certainly should have won a prize for the craziest photo.

Hannah Robison from Paris Landing, crowned Miss Tennessee!

Woo Hoo!  She won!

For 3 days now everyone around Paris Landing has been keeping their fingers crossed, hoping, wishing and praying that our little Hannah Robison might be the next Miss Tennessee.  The daughter of Rusty and Pam Robison at Buchanan Resort here at Paris Landing, Hannah grew up in our neighborhood. She was a beautiful sweet-natured child with big beautiful brown eyes and eye lashes to die for.

She's all grown up now.  21 years old now, she is pursuing a major in chemistry and a minor in psychology at UT Martin.  She was a winner in the swimsuit portion of the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Pageant and the talent portion for a piano performance of “E1 Cumbanchero.”

Congratulation Hannah!  
We are really proud of our lake girl!
Can’t wait to see you in the Miss America pageant!

Hello Summer

Today is the first day of summer. And it's Hot!

The Queen Anne's Lace is having at it.

As are the Day Lilies.

At Sweetvalley Cabin Rental
And the Clematis are blooming their silly heads off.

And the Wild Daisies.

Everyone is looking for cool respite in the shade,

or jumping in the lake, or ...

(we saved the cutest for last) the nearest pool.  This one is at KOA of Paris Landing.

"There's a time in each year that we always hold dear,
Good old summer time;
With the birds and the treeses and sweet-scented breezes,
Good old summer time.
When your day's work is over then you are in clover,
And life is one beautiful rhyme,
No trouble annoying, each one is enjoying,
The good old summer time."

Have a happy summer!

Baby Eagle

There's a baby eagle up there.

Mama Eagle was making so much noise, I was afraid to get out of my car to take a photo.

Lazy Days of Summer

Our KOA Kampground at Paris Landing has new owners - Stephen & Shannon Bentley - and I love this photo they posted on their Facebook page.  It reminds me of my own childhood here at the lake, when life was a little less complicated and all we needed for entertainment was an inner tube or raft and water.

Welcome to our neighborhood Stephen and Shannon.

Spring Is Springing!

Azaleas love it here.

As do the Dogwoods.

And of course the Tulips.  Only at the Lake would you find them in a boat.

And speaking of boats ... let's go fishing!
