Leaving Memphis I saw the damage from last Tuesday's wind storm. Numerous signs were down and I saw a garden shed upside down in the ditch along the Interstate.
The drive to Jackson, Mississippi was uneventful. Just before arriving in Jackson I passed by Canton. I could see in the distance on the left this huge building. There were signs saying that it was a Nissan auto plant. As I drove by I looked at my odometer. The building was at least 1 km long. When I had driven through Alabama last week I had passed a Hyundai and a Saturn plant. I should have stopped in to see if they gave tours. Now that would have been interesting.
The campground I stayed in Jackson was a State Park
After taking about 150 pictures I returned to the camper to have supper. It was nice being in this campground that was far from the Interstate. It was nice and peaceful.
I noticed tonight that one of my front teeth is cracked. I thought I had some chicken stuck in my teeth from supper and went to floss when I noticed the crack. I wear, or am suppose to wear, a night guard as I grind my teeth when I sleep. I go through phases where I do and then don't for a while. I hadn't been wearing it much lately. I wore it a few nights ago, then didn't last night. I'm assuming that's why it's cracked. I don't remember hitting it on anything. Now I have to decide if I go see a dentist and see what they can do before it cracks completely or leave it be and get it fixed when I get back home. Decision, decisions.
I forgot to mention that when I went to Graceland I had seem something that mentioned that Elvis had this logo designed and used it later on in his career. It's TCB with a lightning bolt running through it. It stands for "Taking Care of Business". I loved it. So I bought a medal of it. I hung it up on my rear view mirror. It's actually a medal on a string that was sold to be put on a cell phone through a loop hole that's, I guess, on all cell phones. Mine does have one. I'll take a picture of it one day.
As I'm actually writing this on Saturday night while I'm in New Orleans, I am going to say Good Night as I want to head into the French Quarters for a while to check things out. See how wild the partying is on a Saturday evening during Mardi Gras. Sorry there won't be any pictures from tonight. I'm leaving my camera at the trailer. Another night. Today you get swamp pictures.
