So This is My Future Life.

These are things I am starting to accept as normal in Mississippi:

People riding in the backs of pickups.
Critters in the house.
Fleas and ticks on the dog everyday, despite collars, shampoo, and oil.
Southern drawls.
90+% humidity.
7+ mosquito bites in 5 minutes.
Hour drive to Target.

These are some other interesting things that happened this week:

Josh and his mom saved a baby deer by helping him through a fence he was caught in.
Franklin threw up after putting a toxic toad in his mouth.
We went to a 13 inning baseball game.

Josh ate catfish.
We saw dried up fish on the side of a river.

I ate tamale pie for the first time.
We went to a Southern Music and Tamale Festival.
(Marc Broussard. Pretty good. )

Oh, Mississippi.


  1. I dont like country music but I do like a couple Marc Broussard songs.

    Critters in the house? Yuck! The only picture that came up for me was the 3rd one with the cockroach but that is enough.

    Man, you have a charmed life ahead of you. Glad you are adventurous! :)

  2. Just think of the never-ending adventures ahead and then be grateful that you are going back to Delaware. I am sure excited to see you and can't wait to talk talk talk to you! Have a safe drive!

  3. I'm just now catching up on everything, but this sounds crazy! So fun that you have all these adventures!
