Walking in Memphis *

Sweetness Stands Her Ground at A&R Barbecue in Memphis
Memphis is a short drive of 3 hours from Nashville.  Before we even began to consider the hotel we found lunch at A&R Barbecue. Never disappointing, Tennessee came through again with pork that was smokey and tender. The joint was the usual converted gas station. But everyone was hospitable and friendly. One woman convinced me to buy a fried peach pie. 

We are here for only one night....wait what's that I hear?  4-6 inches of snow and freezing rain are predicted tonight.  It seems the farther south and west we go the colder it gets.  We're hoping the locals have snow plows and know how to use them because we have reservations in Dallas tomorrow.  To sooth our worried travel souls we walked to Beale street and the Rum Boogie Cafe where we heard a great blues band, Vince Johnson and the Boogie Blues Band.
