Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Went To Memphis for the Day

Our day in Memphis started with a stroll to the Peabody Hotel in the center of the city. We had to be in the main lobby of the Peabody for 11:00 am so we could watch the Ducks come out of the elevator and walk to the fountain in the center of the lobby.
Yes, you read this correctly, there are ducks (4 female, 1 lucky male) that come down the elevator from the penthouse every day at 11:00 am, walk on a red carpet to the fountain in the main lobby, and jump in. They spend the day swimming in the fountain and having their dinner, then at 5:00 pm they jump out and return to the elevator for a ride back to their room.

Do you know what happened here?

Nothing has changed since the shooting.

Went over to Mud Island where there was a scale model of the Mississippi River from start to finish. This covers a half mile walk and is all casted in concrete sections. Click on the Mississippi River link above for further info. A short explanation of the Mississippi Riverwalk.
R/B Riverbarge was docked at Mud Island, these are two barges hooked together creating a floating hotel.
Just Joyce with some handsome guy by the Muddy Mississippi, surprisingly there were no boats or ships traveling the river while we were there.
