After a big flapjack, eggs & bacon breakfast,
Laura and I left Jacson at about 10am, playing Johnny Cash and Hem's "Jackson" song. We drove West out of MS and I got my first sight of the Mississippi River! We got out in Vicksburg and saw a hill where Vicksburg-ians defended their city against Grant, till it fell in 1863.
We stopped in Ruston at Louisiana Tech to see the bricks Brian Wells and Laura's parents had as graduates, and then got peaches at a farm stand. We were excited about enjoying a picnic of peaches outdoors, but then it rained.
The rest of the drive was relatively uneventful. We arrived in Dallas with just enough time for Laura to meet the Polaks and then I took her to the airport.
