Sunday, our first night on the road, we drove to Memphis. We explored a bit, ate an Indian dinner and returned to the room. I needed to iron a shirt, so I pulled out the ironing board and iron. Rhonda calls this the "Lojack" model. The iron was tethered with a very short cord, and the base was bolted over the widest part of the ironing board. Very hard to iron with.
The second day, we made the short drive to Paducah. After a bit of a buying frenzy at both Hancocks of Paducah and at Eleanor Burns' store, we visited the Museum of the American Quilt Society. It was fabulous!
I took the next picture for my brother Andy. Rhonda and I were driving down Mayfield Road and saw this van for sale in a car lot. I think Andy needs it. It's perfect for the Browns fan who has everything...and he does have quite an impressive collection of Browns memorabilia. But apparently he doesn't have EVERYTHING!
Chris lives in the Little Italy section of Cleveland, just a couple of miles down the road from the house I grew up in. As a teenager I took clarinet lessons at the Cleveland Institute of Music, and I can't tell you how many times I drove down Mayfield Hill. It's a wonderful neighborhood, full of friendly people and great restaurants.
