We have arrived in The Nati. On our way here, we stopped at the National Corvette Museum. We had lunch at a Waffle House where there were some Sons of God Bikers. One of the advantages of traveling with multiple things that can take pictures is that I can take pictures on multiple things. I’ve
A car waiting in a long line outside the window of a Starbucks in Nashville. We picked our way across western & middle Tennessee today. I took some pics. I’ll share next time I have some down time. For now, let me just say you can rest assured that JESUS is doing well in this
I’ll ask Miss M. to communicate her thoughts to me throughout the day. What I miss when they are gone is the almost constant contact and the quiet times in the truck when you check off conversation starting point and reject them all in turn. There are some false starts. But the point is, you’re/I’m
Day After Tomorrow we drop Miss M. off at MEM and pick our way east. We’ll pause & overnight in Nashville, thanks to the hospitality of Friends. We will get up in the morning and turn left. And then, Poof! We’ll be in Cincinnati. By then, Miss M. will have been home in NC for
It’s everywhere. Yesterday at 8:30am we got in the truck and drove to Starkvegas. I dropped Mr. Big Food off, turned around, drove back to the Farm, turned around, drove back to Starkvegas, picked Mr. Big Food up, turned right, turned left and headed up to Tupelo. We then turned left and drove northwest to
Indeed, we were. This time we will be hanging in the ‘burbs. I hear tell there’s an Apple Store in Germantown. Maybe the Geniuses can fix my computer.
This is not an endorsement. I haven’t a clue who/what this group is. But I’m sympathetic to the question. What I take objection to is “government.” The government (singular) is populated with people (plural). We call them, “They.” The answer to the question of proper role is simple. The proper role of a handful of
Tasteful, in its own peculiar way, don’t you think? Note the complete absence of weeds in the lawns. The stone is beautiful. Rhodes College in “historic” Memphis, Tennessee has one of the most beautiful campuses I’ve ever seen. And for $190,384 for a four-year degree it had better! Note that “[m]any families with incomes over
A statue of Jefferson Davis in Memphis but I have to plant the lettuce right now or else we will not have any fresh salads and I am really ready for some fresh homegrown salads.
This is some public school that’s across the street from where we stayed recently. The blue skies are betraying. But when we pulled in to check in, and got checked in, Mr. Big Food and I both remarked that the building reminded us of some in Bucharest.
Where do I begin? At the beginning, so not necessarily in order of importance. I think I could make some claim about what it means to be a flower bed, and that this “bed” did not qualify as a flower bed, but that aside, I take issue with “beautiful.” The pansies were infested with aphids.

Memphis, Tennessee. The dogs will present some challenges early in the morning, but it’ll be worth it. I don’t mind going to Memphis every couple of months. Memphis sure has changed since the first time I was in Memphis with Mr. Big Food quite some time ago. Two visits stand out. The first was the
Mr. Big Food whipped up Back at the Farm Impromptu Chicken Pizza last evening after we arrived back at the Farm. Here’s how he did it: He cut up one onion and some (homegrown) frozen pepperoncini peppers and sauteed them in 1 Tbsp. olive oil. When the onions were translucent, he transferred the onions and
Having a husband who has a cousin who owns a Wine|Beer|Cigar Bistro is Big. [Diagram that sentence!] It means that we enjoyed some Big wine at in Steiner Ranch, Texas. The wine was paired with some Big Food, created by Albert in a restaurant owned by Jeff & Kathryn. The photos I took of the
A fine start to a very fine meal Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts, which we are about to receive from your bounty. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
is where we are headed. I don’t think I’ve mentioned before that Mr. Big Food is a Texan. My in-laws anointed me an Honorary Texan. These tidbits explain our appreciation of Big Stuff. Blogging will be sporadic, as we are driving.* The trip is not too long, just over nine hours driving time; I’m sure
If you fish, you will understand this. Fishing the Gulf is not the same as fishing The Atlantic. Over the slot limit Red Fish We are learning. In print or digital format, I have a gazillion photos of the sun setting over some water. What a lie. In print or in digital format, I have
Take your shoes off and go for a stroll. Mind the jellyfish. Wonder how much these highrise condominiums weigh. We had a fabulous time. Big Food, etc. resumes normal broadcast hours soon!
