Southaven, Mississippi – Day 2

The motorhome is now parked at VFW Post #10567 in Southaven, Mississippi. The location is about 1/4 mile south of the Tennessee Border and about 10 miles south of the City of Memphis. We will stay here while we explore the Memphis area for the next several days.

Mary returns to me today. I’ll meet her at the airport at 6:00 PM.

Yesterday I ventured less than five miles into Tennessee. I went to the Memphis Visitors Center to pickup maps and brochures for things we may want to see and do while in the area. It’s interesting what happened. Crossing the state line and the slow southern way of life seem to disappear. Back into traffic and noise immediately. Hmmm….

The below Google Earth image shows my relative location to the Memphis area. The V is the location of VFW Post #10567 where I am currently parked. The red line indicates the Tennessee/Mississippi Border…

Shortly thereafter I was back in Mississippi and spent about three hours going to thrift and used book stores to replenish my dwindling supply of books. I saw something I have never seen before…a Goodwill Bookstore. It’s part of the Goodwill system…but at this store they sell only books. It was neat and clean and all the books are sorted by author which made it very pleasant to shop there. I bought several books…


I forgot to show you a photo I took while at the Delma Firmiss Hospitality Center at Lula, Mississippi a couple of nights ago. It was taken at midnight through the passenger-side windshield. I thought it made for a neat photo…


Today’s activities are expected to include…get a haircut…do laundry and pickup Mary.

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
