Thursday, 27 Nov......Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends!!!! I spent the morning getting ready to go to Nolan's brother's home to eat. Everyone was there and we had a good time catching up. Food was great! We have so much to be thankful for!!!!
Friday, 28 Nov.....Walts Convenience store called and wanted me to work for a couple of hours so I got around and went to Roby around 12:00. Mom came to spend the night before we have our Thanksgiving meal with my family on Saturday. My sister made homemade pizzas for dinner and they were really good.
Saturday, 29 Nov.....Another great meal with my family and some fun playing games. The girls also decorated the Christmas tree. I had forgotten how noisey little girls can be.....we had six between the ages of 9 and 2. They had a good time.
Sunday, 30 Nov.....Opened at the store today and woke up to snow.....way too cold....we're ready to head for Texas. Will probably leave around 9 or 10 Dec. I'm so excited!

While outside walking down the sidewalk, we saw a barge going down the river. It was really far away and we watched it down the river. The other pictures are of the barge zoomed in.

Thursday and Friday we spent mostly just at the campsite. We did make a run to Wal Mart....can't stop anywhere and not go to the local Wal Mart.
Saturday we left the trailer for somewhere. I finally decided that I wanted to go to Gulfport. So off we went. Knew the hurricane had gone through there but it hadn't occurred to me that things wouldn't be back to normal. Mostly cleaned up but still lots of land for sale and lots of rebuilding to do. We didn't find a place to eat on the gulf during the drive back and we were almost back to New Orleans before we knew it. So we decided to drive back across the causeway, a 23 mile long bridge across the middle of Lake Pontchatrain. Nice drive!
Sunday and Monday were days spent at the RV park reading and walking.
Tuesday I talked Nolan into going to see a plantation. We started out and soon found out that it was a bit farther that we expected so we ate lunch at The Cabin Restaurant. Very nice and great food!
Wednesday we packed up and headed north......yes north not south! We're going back to our home town. The full time lifestyle is not for Nolan......he's been pretty unhappy. Our first stop was in Canton, MS, where we just stayed overnight. We drove about 200 miles and it was time to stop and this place was convenient; not someplace we would stay for very long (Movietown RV Park).
Today we drove another 200 miles to Tunica, MS. We're staying at the Hollywood Casino RV Park for at least 2 nights maybe 3. Nolan said he would go to Graceland in Memphis tomorrow so I'm excited. I'll have more pictures tomorrow!

Tuesday was the day to visit the Jimmy Rodgers Museum (only open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday that's why we stayed 2 extra days).
This is a picture of the outside of the building--no pictures allowed inside.
Nolan standing by the historical marker sign outside the building (he tried to get me to let him take my picture but I didn't let him have the camera, sorry, Carla).
This is the lady that works here. She followed us outside to tell us something else about another historical marker sign downtown.
