I’m pleased to report that arrived back at Farther Along Farm without incident. Not that there weren’t plenty of incidents, but none kept us from arriving home safely. We left in good time. Saw the big digger at the edge of the cotton field as soon as we turned onto the road. As we approached,
Memphis Zoo and Aquarium, Memphis. Memphis, Tennessee. Traveling Sunday– a day late on account of the fact that we were traveling! The hotels in downtown Memphis are to be avoided at all costs. The SleepInn elevator (1) malfunctioned. Stopped at every unoccupied floor on the way to 5 & 6 and back down again We
The zoo opens at 9am. FYI, traveling with a mini electric kettle, Melitta ‘morning bliss’ coffee, two ceramic mugs, and a pour over cone sure does make waking up early in a pretty crappy* downtown Memphis hotel room more tolerable. *I have spared you the under construction details.

ME: Do you do Doctor Who? KARI: No. But Caroline tells me I need to. ME: Do you do Doctor Who? MR. GREG: Everything I know about Doctor Who I learned from Caroline. ME: Do You do Doctor Who? WEINBERG: Yes. ME: … Is Clara alive? It’s all about the essences, don’t you know?
Via an email from Miss M., from a day-trip to Memphis. I hear tell it was hot in Memphis today.
Sunday evening update: I’ve caught up with the more interesting photographs in the archives and so we may now return to the present in which I have a lot to do. (You thought this country livin’ was easy, didn’t you? Sippin’ liminade and spittin’ teebaccky.) ~~ I’ve hoarded a few photographs from the last weeks.
Mr. Big Food saw the snow and said, “Might as well be in Boston.” We did what we had to do in Memphis. And this is funny, we double checked. Is there anything we need to do in Memphis that can’t wait until the next time we go to Jackson? No. So we headed down
The Tower in no particular order UPDATE (7:40am): Something’s wrong. Things aren’t looking as they should. I’m working on it. Part of the fun of collecting old books is in the finding of old books. Part of the fun in that is poking around different corners of the world, discovering what each has to offer.
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.

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.
Remember that? Daughter C is tough. Today is Missy’s One Week Anniversary here at the Farm. In retrospect, it was sort of nuts to bring a new Big Dog into the mix when we had Company and had to go to Memphis, Tennessee. But when would have been a better time? It’s 9:30pm. She was
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
As I mentioned, the girls are coming. So I thought I could whup up a few simple posts now, and schedule them to post later. But I got side-tracked. MAIN TRACK: Daughter K arrives by air at the Memphis Airport (MEM) at 6pm Tuesday. K & I were negotiating about Tuesday’s supper. Mr. Big Food
As I posted yesterday, there’s an article up at NRO about what a great place The South is. It’s gotten a bit of attention in the part of the World Wide Web that I frequent. Here’s Glenn Reyonlds response: To be honest, we’d rather word didn’t get out. Stay away! In fact, I need to
