The highlight of the drive yesterday was finding Mallards Family
Restaurant. This place had pictures above the door and Patsy Kline beat out
the Pope 2 to 1 in # of photos present. It was great food with lots to see
in the decor. Full size cardboard cutouts of county western persona and
christmas decoration still adorning the building. Including a full enclave
of icicles hanging on the gutters.
Tracy had fried catfish, fried orka, and hushpuppies, but to my suprise she
was able to avoid the cobbler. We are starting a betting on how much weight
will be gained on this trip. The people were straight out of a Steven King
movie. With four full tables of families we did not hear a conversation for
20 minutes.
We ended up making it passed Memphis last night but not before dropping in
on Beale street. We did not recall them wanding people down with metal
detectors back in the day, but it sure seems like a good idea! My favorite
was that one of the guards had already found a pair of brass knuckles on
someone or brought them from home. The interesting thing is women did not
get wanded at all, only checked the purse... I think we found a loophole.
Tracy enjoyed the diversity of people in that there is something for
everyone on Beale street.

We took a trip years ago and I added 5 pounds in one week! Didn't gain in Ireland but we walked a lot of miles and that kept it off.

I am not sure I can identify all of the food in the pic- is that country fried steak?

I hope you didn't actually eat fried orka...

It's slimy.
