HOW-DEE!!!!! Miss Minnie Pearl was a Nashville favorite. She was amember of the Opry and a regular on Hee-Haw where she had a shop and a wooden nickel got you a cup of coffee. I was on the set one time as a kid when my mother was guest starring and Minnie gave me a box full of her wooden nickels. She was the greatest lady and there is now the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center in her name here in Nashville.
