I had a great nights sleep last night, and actually woke up quite late. It was wonderful sleeping in a hotel that didn’t have smoke wafting through the door, or smell of pets!
The plan today is to drive to Memphis TN, just across the border. Before that I want to visit a casino, hopefully to win enough money to pay for this trip!
I knew that I would have no luck, when the dollar bill that I fed into a poker machine got stuck inside! I called the attendant and he gave me the evil eye as he took out the crumpled note!
I spent an hour at the not so lucky Horseshoe casino, trying to find a ‘lucky’ spot to put down my $10!
I decided to cash it in for two $5 chips and play roulette. The first chip went on black, loss. The second went on red, loss! Stupid game anyhow!
Ten dollars lighter, I headed for Memphis. My accommodation there was back at Pattys house, the Airbnb Farmhouse that I stayed at last year.
The Farmhouse is a great property, and if you are ever looking for somewhere to stay in Memphis, I would highly recommend it.
I suggested to Patty that I take her out for a Mothers Day lunch and she drove me to Huey’s Burgers, a favourite restaurant at mid town.
I ordered the World Famous Huey Burger, and Patty ordered the same as well a side of onion straws.
The burger was quite tasty, a decent size, and they can actually cook the beef patty to your liking!
The highlight of the lunch were the onion straws! Thinly cut onion rings, floured and then deep fried! They had an intense onion flavour and being so thin, almost melted in your mouth!
Patty has agreed to allow me to stay as a guest in return for painting her hallway. We both agreed to start work tomorrow morning, and settled in for a few drinks. Patty made a light supper and it was good to finally be in Memphis!
