Life in Jackson

We have settled in Mississippi, and are keeping busy! The people here really are friendly, and keep feeding us incredible amounts of food. This keeps up, they'll be rollin' us onto the plane.

Our first big adventure was the Red Beans and Rice Festival. Great fun-- 40 or 50 booths competing for the Grand Champion recipe. The whole thing is put on as a fundraiser for The Stewpot-- a local food ministry originated and sponsored by members of St. Philips (the deacon here is the director).

If you go here, you'll see our close encounter with the apparent mascot of said festival. Never a dull moment here in Jackson.

We have now found a lovely little coffee shop with FREE wifi; so I'll be able to post a bit, here and there. This is a wonderful thing-- I was beginning to twitch with withdrawl symptoms.
