I have a huge request for you if you're in this area. Today is my son's birthday and he's having a rough time: far from family and friends; has been laid off three times and is in financial crisis; girlfriend (now ex-girlfriend) keeps him in turmoil. I talked to him this morning and he was very depressed. We have been without income since the first of the year, so I didn't send him anything--thought I'd just make a phone call this time. Oh how I regret that now!! Is there a store there that I could call that would put together a wholesome food assortment? He's a hiker/caver. Are there any outdoor stores that I might be able to get a gift certificate? I'm just grasping at straws here, I know, but I'm in tears hurting over my 33-yr-old "little boy". I was asking my husband "what can we do?" when I said "I know--Cake Central!--maybe someone there can help." Please bump this along. TIA

I live in Nashville which is about 1.5 hours from Crossville. It may be too late today but 1800 flowers sends edible things and so does the edible bouquets. There is a sports recreation store called REI (rei.com). There is one located in the Nashville area. I can actually see it from my office window. You can actually buy gift cards on line and have them delivered by email. Sorry you son is going through a rough time. We never get over worrying about our kids no matter their age.
