IDK, it has been decades since I last used a drive up ATM Machine. I can't remember the last time, I even used an ATM Machine, but my bank has a branch in the grocery store up the street from me, when I last used it, years ago, it was inside there.

Gorgeous photo. Tennessee is a beautiful state.

Because of the weather they say, our fall colors haven't been as good this year as usual.
Usually it's gorgeous. Kind of muted and brief color change this year.
