My Brush with Greatness

It was the mid '70s, and I was working for a company in Nashville Tennessee. 
I lived in a location near to a large grocery store called 'Giant Foods' in the
100 Oaks shopping mall in Berry Hill, an enclave of Nashville proper.

I was bummed from work, a bad day, but I had to get the shopping done on my way home from work. 
So I was wearing a weary frown and trundling my shopping cart from aisle to aisle getting the basics
for the bachelor I was at that time.

Rounding a corner and wearing the frown I looked up and there was Minnie Pearl pushing a cart
and wearing a smile.  When she saw me she brightened up even more and said her famous 'Howdy!'

Immediately the burdens of my day were gone and a big smile covered my face! 
Minnie Pearl is a Tennessee Treasure, and I am grateful for her presence that day and for all of her goodness.

What a treat for a simple guy.
