Deep Breath

Whew...things have been crazy here.  But next week it's time for Artfest.  Time for creating, seeing old friends, making new friends and laughing.  I can't wait!

We just got back from a last minute trip to Memphis.  WOW...what a great time we had---stayed out late, listened to lots of music and ate yummy B-B-Q.

We stayed at a little hotel about 4 blocks from Beale Street and 2 blocks from the Mississippi River.  They block off about 4 blocks of  Beale Street in the evenings.  The air is full of fabulous smells and wonderful sounds.  All the clubs have live bands, there are bands playing on the street or in alcoves next to outdoor bars.  You just walk from one place to another checking out the music.  Several times people just started  dancing in the street.  One big, fun party.
We went to Graceland one day.  What an amazing place.  I couldn't believe all the memorabilia they have there. 

We also took a riverboat ride up the Mississippi.  I took a trip up the southern part of the river when I was in New Orleans, now I've done the middle of the river.  I just need to go up the northern part and I'll have done it all  :-)
