Jeff, it is simply amazing that the river starts as it does. Yes, at the beginning of the Mississippi River, you can literally walk across is. Here, in some parts of Vicksburg, it is near two miles wide. You have to be a strong swimmer if you swim across because, even on calm days, the undertow will pull you down and drown you. If you do successfully swim it, and go straight across, you exit about eight miles downstream from where you entered. I grew up on the Mississippi River. No matter how far I go, I’ve always been able to tell I was home when I seen those muddy waters.

Randy, I’m glad you enjoyed it. There is so much more to see that I didn’t get in there though. I just got tired of typing.

David, it is nice to get out once in a while. We all had a great time. Unfortunately though, I am laid up this evening, still paying for it.
No, she will not get a stove like that. I haven’t been too awfully long remodeling the ktichen to put in this ceramic top stove she has now.
