This past weekend we went to Memphis with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. We went to see the "Lion King" at the Orpheum. What and impressive old theater. . .except that the rows of seats were too close together and you had to stand up to let people walk by. The show was a lot of fun. I think the costumes are very creative. After the show, we walked around down town - mostly at Peabody Place. We ate dinner at a new restaurant that was very much like Gaucho's in Little Rock. We don't have a restaurant like that in Red Stick, and we'd missed it! It was a great treat.
The next day, we got up and watched the ducks march in at the Peabody. They are escorted down from their habitat on the roof in an elevator, and walk out - hopefully in a straight line - on the red carpet and into the fountain.

We ate lunch at Huey's - a local burger chain that is the home of the best onion rings in the tri-state area - and then took a trolley ride.


  1. It looks like you guys had a great time! And it looks like you're feeling better, which is great!

    Hope you're doing well!

  2. We saw Lion King in New York. It was a very impressive show! The costumes were creative and I loved the puppetry!
