Because I like to take pictures of trees. With the moon, if you look in the branches. We went to the Memphis Zoo while we there,  so I have lots of pictures there too. I highly recommend it if you get the chance. It was amazing and full of good, healthy looking animals.  And I so want to keep this up every day!  I am going to try to be better, she says, yet again. But I promised four  and delivered four. I have that at least.  January 3. Still raining. 34 degrees. Thank you for spending some of your day with me.

The Kids Wanted To Touch The Mississippi River

So I let them. I let them climb down a rocky, steep embankment, to lean over and touch the freezing cold, fast moving, dangerously currented big river. I was nervous they would slip and fall in and be lost forever. They swim good, but this is a big, fast, scary river even when it looks slow from the side. I know because I also climbed down there like a dum dum to touch that cold ass water, and I don’t swim as good as them so I probably really would have drowned if I fell in. Tourists. But I was fine. And they were fine. And there’s the picture.

We went to Memphis for Thanksgiving. It was really nice actually. That’s where the BF’s family lives. We went to Graceland. We took the tourist picture. I’m going to post it as a bonus, just for you, my special friends, who actually take the time to read this sketchy blog every few months or so. Please enjoy this piece of American culture!
