During September and October Susan and I embarked on a tour of several midwestern and western states, driving in our 2000 Toyota Siena van(215,000 miles before our trip)a total of 7,279 miles through 13 states. We were gone 33 days and spent the night in 21 different places. When we got home it dawned on us that we had been together virtually 24/7 for the entire trip with no major disagreements and without growing tired of each other. I think our marriage of 41 years will last.

Saturday September 17 and Sunday September 18: Memphis TN
We did a few repairs around Patricia’s house and toured the Cooper Young Art Festival on Saturday with lunch at Central BBQ, in our opinion the best in Memphis. That night we had a fantastic dinner at Andrew Michael, an Italian kitchen—I highly recommend it if you’re ever in the area. After church at Idlewild Presbyterian we had lunch at Café Electic, another great place. Each time we go to Memphis we discover new and wonderful places to eat! Patricia was training for her third marathon and had a 12 mile training run scheduled for Sunday, so we departed mid afternoon for the next leg of our journey. Destination for tonight—Little Rock AR.
