A Trip Through the Delta - Part II
So, we started the day off like this. Cindy takes me on a trip on the Polaris. Now the only "Polaris" I know is the pool cleaner that we have in our pool. You know, those really irritating things that everyone has a name for....ours is Jack. She wanted to show me her sunflower field....unfortunately they weren't quite growed up yet.
But first...Cindy had to greet her pack of dogs
I mean, they had to greet her. (that little yellow thang right there gave me a head butt to the gut)
I got to drive!!! POWER
oh, the serenity and peacefulness of a growing crop
this here corn had growd a foot since I got here.
(but I couldn't find the foot)
not sure why we wanted to see (or take a pic) of this...
It sort of gave me the creeps.
anyway.....then....you can't go to the "Delta" without going here
oh be still my pottery lovin heart
had lunch at McCarty's little bistro....oh, yummers
I mean seriously folks how much food CAN I eat. This was dessert....
1/2 chocolate cobbler and 1/2 caramel cobbler (sorry, don't have the recipe)
then we had to go on over to McCartys' competitor Peters
(where the prices are much better)
and I had to make a few purchases
this is the Captain Rodney's dish (made especially for the recipe down below)
and Cindy bought this (to hold Sykes' Citrucel) (sorry Sykes!)
Then off to Greenwood. But first, we went down Money Road.
A little history lesson here. This is the grocery store where young Emmet Till was murdered by a pack of Caucasian men and thrown in the Tallahatchie river with a 70 lb. gin fan tied to his body. It was noted as the start of the American Civil Rights movement.
then off to the Alluvian for coctails...where we ran into Cindy's mom, her investment club and
everyone else that lives in Greenwood
and meeting more friends!
WAIT!!! hold it! one more stop!
How could I go to the Delta and not see this????
and meet Mawtha's hubby Donald
"The" Baker for Viking
we lusted over some bread..
and I lusted over this....
I'm sorry to say, gotta leave the Delta and go hit some golf balls
Thank you Cindoo for a wonderful trip!
