Ole Miss Game

We drove to Memphis where we went to antique stores, drove around some beautiful neighborhoods and then went downtown.  Our first stop was the Peabody Hotel where we got to the see the famous Peabody ducks leave their fountain, get on their elevator and go to their penthouse for the evening.2012-10-05 001When we arrived, the crowds had already begun to gather so we had to go upstairs.  Most of the pictures were too dark but here you can see their red carpet and the stairs that they will use to climb out of the fountain. You can see 4 ducks in the fountain. 2012-10-05 004

and then it was time for supper at Rendezvous.2012-10-05 0202012-10-05 018Great ribs and brisket along with the atmosphere!

Saturday morning we had breakfast at the hotel and then drove to Oxford for the football game.  We parked near the square and began walking around. The courthouse is in the center of the square much like it is in many county seats in the South.2012-10-06 001

As we were walking around, we saw Dr. Loftin, the President of Texas A&M University.  He was so gracious to have his picture made with us.2012-10-06 002A former football coach was also there, but he had walked off before we could speak to him.  We find having a college president and former coach at an away game a very unique situation.

We ate lunch at Ajax restaurant…another delicious Southern meal!2012-10-06 004

We walked our lunch off by walking to the Ole Miss campus 2012-10-06 006

Bowtie is short. Just an observation.
