We met a lot of prospective students from different states and saw a few acquaintances. It was a good morning. Then we traveled across the hills to the flat land of the Mississippi Delta to see our best friend. Next week is our son Connor's birthday and our friend Mike pulled out all the stops and surprised him with a delicious birthday supper with some old and new friends.
We made a special trip to a tamale stand down the street to pick up some of the best in town.
I was so jealous that I could not try Mike's crabcakes (have a shellfish allergy), but everyone else said they were out of this world. Aren't they a beautiful golden brown?
And...after much persuasion from the other guests, Con donned his birthday crown
as "Uncle Mike" joined in the fun.
We made it home to the coast in 5 hours with only one stop. Now, the washer and dryer are going, I am in my pjs watching the Oscars, and getting ready to start another week. No signs of my tulips yet. I think we will have to settle for azaleas this year! Blessings to you for more good times and sunshine.
