Way back in the goodle days, before there was a 440, to get to the Nashville airport from Brentwood, we had to take 65 to Thompson Lane and go that way to the airport.
When I was a small kid, my dad made fairly frequent trips to the airport as a passenger and because he would often mail his radio show tapes out from the main post office there next to the old terminal. It was not unusual to go late at night on those Post Office runs.
The ultimate treat back then was the times we got to stop at the old, Krispy Kreme place there on the corner of Thompson Lane and Nolensville Rd. Of course, you get to the KK AFTER you’ve gone through that old, narrow tunnel and honked…
I never go to that part of town anymore, but, happened to be over that way Friday night. I was glad to see they kept the old sign when they built the new building. That sight right there gives me the warm fuzzies.
I always wanted to play in that cool park there across the street. We’d pass there and I would think that would be the COOLEST playground to play on. I never once went through that slide with the tunnel or rode that merry-go-round. Deprived child.
