Chicago, more than the Blues

We got a late start out of St. Louis, so after only an hour’s driving, we were ready for lunch. We usually drive the back roads and avoid the interstates, but this time we opted to take the faster I-55, hoping to arrive by early evening at the home of our dear friends Steve and … Continue reading »

Memphis Mojo

The wonderful world of Nashville was like a warm-up act for the great superstar, Memphis. Center stage is Beale Street, which is cordoned off on the weekends, making the three block long corridor feel like one giant block party.

All Shook Up Over Elvis

Little towns with big sounds

Music is such a part of the fabric of life in North Carolina. You don’t have to go far to find a place to stomp your feet and clap your hands. On this particular Thursday night, we headed just 45 minutes south of Asheville to the charming little town of Brevard, NC, Land of Waterfalls.

No reservations necessary

Walking around downtown Asheville, you can be entertained without spending more than a few dollars on tips, or a drink in a bar. On almost every corner, entryway, and sidewalk are street entertainers. Some, like the Bumtown Messaround, have unique talents you might find as an opening act on a Las Vegas stage.

30 years traveling the road of life together

Planning our trips can be pretty stressful; I feel totally responsible for our enjoyment. So imagine the pressure I put on myself this year trying to figure out how to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Added to the difficulty of planning for this momentous occasion was the fact that April 28 fell on a Monday. YES, … Continue reading »
