Think Bourbon St. for the blues. Seriously amazing place. Debbie and I have a date with a club, a cocktail, Bar-be-que and live music for Saturday night. Made it hard to go to a convention hall after an afternoon down here. (Will post more photos to facebook in an album as soon as I can.)

The eight hour drive was pure sunshiny pleasure with green green grass, blue skies and a gentle sunset. This lovely tree stood across the street from the 66 gas station (where I paid $50.00 for a tank of gas—ouch!). Memphis photos coming. What a cool place! Loving it already.

Multiple trips to Office Depot, even as night fell. Trunk is open to load more convention supplies. I love the way electric lights look at night and the way overhead lights create outlines and reflections of a different kind than the sun.
There is a certain Darth Vadar-esque look to that open trunk that looks like a hood, isn't there?

In preparation for weeks of conventions, I opted for the expensive shellac manicure. I already love it! This nail shop cracked me up with all its color and twinkle lights. Watched the Kardashians on E-TV while my nails were painted and dried under UV light. That's a worthless show!

Our family has ushered at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company for 11 years. They do the works of Shakespeare, rotating through the canon, selecting both well known and little known plays. In addition, they usually select other wonderful plays such as "The Importance of Being Earnest" or "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead." This time, Caitrin and I ushered for "Pride and Prejudice" on Oscar night (wherein Colin Firth won the Oscar for "The King's Speech"). So fitting.
I love the Cincinnati pig in the background—he's "HAMlet" of course!
About now I'm wanting Tracy's DSLR for these horrid indoor photos that my P&S is so inadequate to capture.
