But I bet it just irked Nashville boosters to always be number 2 to Shelby County which was always number 1.
The rumor at the time they changed the format was that the legislators from Memphis were worried that Shelby County would soon be passed by Davidson County.

But, no, no one here in Nashville worries about Memphis. Go to Memphis and you will hear a lot of gripping about Nashville. They seem to think Nashville is treated better because it's the state capital. It may be for all I know.

It used to be easy to keep up with the relative population of counties when I was a kid; it was right on the license plates. The number of a Shelby County plate would start with "1", Davidison County "2", etc. At the time Montgomery County was "9".
I remember that. Sullivan was 5 and Washington was 6.

You can say that again. I even know about a NASA satellite restaurant in space over Nashville. Good food but no atmosphere.

Thanks alleycat for keeping your sense of humor. It appears to be scarce around these parts.

Getting back to the fascinating subject of food, is anyone here familiar with "Dry Land Fish?" It is the morel mushroom that grows wild in early spring. We always found it near our fruit trees. It is delicious when dipped in flour and fried, with a taste akin to chicken, fish or frog legs.
