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.

Clarksdale, Mississippi Home Of The Blues

We left Red Bay at about 10:00 AM and headed for Mississippi.
 We traveled on the Natchez Trace for a while.
Then we got off the Trace and traveled another great road with no traffic.
 In fact the ride was so smooth and boring that some of us took a nap.
Then we found a Huddle House for a lunch stop.
 Once out of town we traveled for mile after mile through cotton fields.
Those are large bails of cotton, I mean the size of a large truck.
 I can't imagine how much these bails must weigh
We passed some of these small homes that looked like they were slave houses in their day.
Once in Clarksdale, we stopped at the museum to see if they had any info.
Then I spotted this on Ike Turner. I didn't know he was from this town.
Next to the Museum is Ground Zero Blues Club
Check the link above and see who own this Club. And yes, that is the front door.
This is the place for Blues.
And this is the famous Devils Crossroads where Robert Johnson sold his soul.
This weekend the town is having a Blues Festival so stay tuned.

I guess the Ground Zero club does not believe in putting some money back in the business:)
