LAST Day 7: Easter Sunday – Knoxville, TN. to Brookfield, IL.

Woke up Easter Sunday morning to the smell of old stale bed spreads and the sound of the humming hotel room air conditioner.  Had our free Continental breakfast which consisted of plain mini bagels with optional cream cheese and Little Debbie sweet rolls.  Their was also Coffee and generic Tang, powdered Orange Drink.  Got on the way first thing, was on Hwy 75 heading North by 9AM.  Stopped at a Cracker Barrel in Shelbyville KY. for an early Easter dinner.  It looked pretty packed from the parking lot outside, but we were seated immediately. It was at this point I realized this was the first time EVER, our Gately family had been away from Brookfield for Easter dinner.  Got back on the road and arrived back in Brookfield, IL. before 9PM that night.  So that was the answer to the question, Borg-Dayton was asking me all the way home that night!
