"But grief makes a monster out of us sometimes . . . and sometimes you say and do things to the people you love that you can't forgive yourself for.”                               ........Melina Marchetta.

My South, The Delta

Greg Isles  said it best in his book, The Quiet Game,
"The Delta smells of hardwood forest, creek water, kudzu, bush-hogged wildflowers, and baking earth. The competing aromas blend into a heady restart you'd never find in a Northern city.                                                          
This area used to boast it's share of rich, gentlemen planters who's fortunes were made from the white gold cotton crops that fed Northern and European Mills. Plantations stretched as far as the eyes could see, and more on both sides of the Mississippi River. Lumber was also king while it lasted. "

Did you know?

Did you know that some storm systems can hold more water than the Mississippi River?  I wouldn't want one of those to rain on me.

Eleven years ago today I began blogging. I think my first post was a couple of sentences about rednecks.

Then, an especially awesome event happened later that same day, Alexis, aka, the Chick, came into this world and started immediately exploring her surroundings. She's still exploring and is so intelligent. 

Happy 11th birthday little southern Chickie.
