I used to go to Riccos for pizza and an order of bread. And of course the beer. Almost got shot at Tubbys one night too
Didn't Tubbys get blown up with dynamite? I know it burned, but, not sure if the two events coincided. Franklin county was the wild west back then. I once got shot at by a prominent optician who was drinking at Camp Tennassee ( before they
impounded Tims Ford). Either he was too drunk or he was just messing with me because he missed, but I definitely heard them whizzing by! Those were the days.

Not sure about the dynamite but it wouldn't surprise me. Damn drunk opticians. That could put an eye out. Lmao

Grew up in Claiborne County, went to high school at The Valley. Saw where some here were talking about fishing at Earl's Holler, I've done that many times. Spent Sundays at church, then shooting hoops at LMU. Moved to middle Tennessee after high school and never went back. Hendersonville now.

Where are we from” and “where do we live” are totally different questions. Northeast TN will always be home. Wilmington is where my mail has been delivered for years now.
correct- East Tennessee (Kingsport) is where I was born and raised...but I’ve lived in Niceville, Florida for the past 15+ years
