The sun setting on the Mississippi River

Last month, I spent a few days down in Mississippi, and I took this photo on a lazy Sunday afternoon.  As you might imagine, the temperature was in the 90s and the humidity was about a thousand percent.  Still, it was a great moment.  I just sat there contentedly and watched the river flow.  For whatever reason, I've always enjoyed watching rivers especially a majestic one like the Mississippi River.

More good food at the Irish Picnic in McEwen

Last weekend, I made my annual visit to the St. Patrick's Irish Picnic over in McEwen, and as always, it did not disappoint.  Actually, I thought the food this year was the best ever.  Pork BBQ, green beans, fried chicken, potato salad, chocolate cake and sweet tea for only eight dollars.  That is a deal that is hard to beat.
