Sunday – December 9, 2012
We awoke to periods of thunder and heavy rains this morning. The rain stopped mid-morning but the sky remained overcast throughout the day with the temperature in the low 70’s. A cold front is expected to enter the area tonight clashing with the warm weather and causing severe thunderstorms to erupt throughout western Tennessee and northeastern Arkansas. Our weather radio will alert us of any extreme weather conditions that may prompt us to exit our campsite at the Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park campground.
Today is my birthday. Another day older and hopefully a more caring person than I was the day before. Each day I strive to do some good deed that enriches another person’s self esteem.
Sharon and I celebrated my birthday with a late lunch at Corky's Rib's & BBQ in Memphis. This is one of our favorite BBQ’s here and they never disappoint. We had the full slab of ribs special setup for two with sides of coleslaw, corn on the cob and hush puppies. We finished the meal off with a delicious peach cobbler for two with a scoop of ice cream on top. Nightfall was approaching, we left Corky’s well fed and promised ourselves we would go for a nice long walk tomorrow to burn off some of those thousand or so calories we just consumed.
Monday we’re off to Texarkana, Texas.
Tomorrow a new adventure begins.
