Today’s report from the road came in shortly before 1:00pm this afternoon. Our travelers left Hot Springs AK, drove through Memphis TN and headed for  Tunica MS.

Why Tunica you might ask?  Apparently Tunica’s claims to fame are the casinos. Huge casinos. Huge casinos out in the middle of the cotton and soy bean fields.  According the the Tunica Convention and Visitors Bureau, the nine world-class casino hotels provide “the best gaming, sensational dining and the hottest live entertainment between Atlantic City and Las Vegas”. Who knew?

After Tunica, Diane and her merry band of sidekicks headed toward Nashville. By the time they arrived in area it was too late to stop at Diane’s sister’s place so they decided that they might as well see another state. At the time of this report they are in Bowling Green KY.

After a very late night, Diane rose early to play golf. She found a regulation course and played 9 glorious holes. She says the golf gods were smiling upon her. Even her misses were excellent and she closed out the round with a score of 39. I could almost see her smile through the phone lines.
