After a busy day of cyber-frightening, I took a little walk down the historic Lamar Street to see the beautiful homes.
Every home in Oxford (even the non-historic ones) has an open porch (most wrap-around) and the obligatory wooden rocking chairs on the porch. Many also have porch swings - AHHH.
I've also discovered why Mississippi has the highest percentage of obese people. Last night we went to Ajax Diner, famous for southern cooking. I had chicken & dumplings, rolled out with shredded chicken just the way Grandma made! The entree came with two vegetable sides - sweet potato casserole and fried eggplant were my choices. (Who knew there was such a variety of veggies??) Two more days to enjoy Southern hospitality . . .
