OK -- we finally settled in one spot long enough to order our 2006 Christmas present from Dana and Kevin -- New England Lobsters shipped directly to our motor coach. Jann was extremely excited as she offers a toast and reprise's her Broadway role in "Horton Hears a Who." Thanks for a great dinner, Kevin and Dana.

Well the high cost of Diesel ($4.50 and going up) has caused us to slow our pace a bit. We are staying in Horn Lake MS. for a month. What does one do in Horn Lake, MS, you ask? Well fortunately it is a short 20 minute drive from Memphis, TN. What does one do in Memphis you ask? There is one main attraction -- see photo. Once we discover more to do in Horn Lake and Memphis, we will post it immediately. Stay tuned.

We are now (May 2008) parked in Hot Springs about 30 minutes from Little Rock. At first we were very impressed with this area -- the deepest green vistas we have seen since leaving Portland. But then we talked to a few natives and discovered the high temperatures and even higher humidity that is so common here in the summer. So we will not be settling in Arkansas

Before leaving Texas we ate at Babes Chicken, just outside of Dallas -- twice!!! It is absolutely the best fried chicken you will ever eat in Texas. Side dishes served in separate bowls include mashed potatoes, corn and greens. YUM!!!

The pictures include shots of Wichita Falls and the red river that feeds the falls. Jann and a brief visit with an ex-president and the hog statue sits outside of the Farmers Market in Little Rock -- go figure. There is also a picture of a typical Arkansas RV that was converted from a truck. You gotta love Arkansas.
As you can see, gas is a lot cheaper in Arkansas and we bought a bar for eldest son Dennis, Jr for his retirement. Now we are on to Tennessee hopefully to meet up with son Kevin for the famous Memphis Barbecue cook off. Pictures and report to follow.
