had a GREAT time with the "ins" this weekend...we ate our way around the delta (tamales, doughnuts, catfish, lusco's, mennonite bakery chess pie...we really did eat everything) and shopping all the antique stores we could find. SO FUN. plus toured the great river road state park and ran into morgan freeman around lunchtime at ground zero. I thought boone's mom was going to faint--she was that excited.
if you've never been to lusco's or you don't know what joy eating a delta tamale can be...and if you were pretty sure that the only Ground Zero was in NYC, then here's something for you...
ground zero...and one of the owners:
