Knoxville TN to Gilbertsville KY

Ellen decided that we had to go directly to the Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden and Toyland Museum. It was located about 10 minutes from our destination hotel. So, we drove to Calvert City KY. It was a pleasant drive and and didn’t get any rain during the trip. Jorge focused on taking pictures of some unique road side signs. He has come to the conclusion that Tennessee is both a sexually starved state and one that adores guns.

The Hillbilly Garden and Toyland Museum has its webpage. Click here to see it. Keith, the owner and docent, has lots of videos there. Ellen and I think that Keith himself it the main attraction. He describes his hillbilly folk art through his many, many puns. It’s all very punny!
